Legal and Compliance Counsel

Legal and Compliance Counsel

Would you like to be a part of a small but mighty team with an incredible growth record, where you will have a big impact on the business? Then you've reached the right spot!

Remote, On-boarding in Stockholm

Who you Are

We’re looking for friendly people who are self-motivated and willing to learn. You are used to project management and coordination. To thrive in this role, you have a “can-do” attitude and are a person who is flexible, service-oriented and takes your own initiatives and appreciates working both operationally and strategically.

You probably have 1-2 years experience working at a law firm (or similar) and now want to learn more about the tech industry and IT security - and how those areas can be intertwined with legal and compliance obligations.

As a person, you are aware of goals and quality standards in your work, and confident in acting according to decisions made. We see that you are unpretentious and have a good ability to prioritize, communicate and structure your work.

Further, since we work remotely, you will be given a lot of freedom. That, of course, comes with a responsibility to making sure that you’re doing things that are valuable.

What you’ll do

You will be responsible for legal and compliance, and make sure that we comply with standards and regulations. You will examine our security and compliance efforts from a holistic view, including implementation and requirement specifications.

All of the above will of course be done with the help and support of the rest of the team. Furthermore, this is a position with great opportunities for the right person, and we encourage all employees to shape their own roles (we highly believe in intrapreneurship). Therefore, you will have the autonomy to decide how your own role and tasks develop within your area of responsibility.

You will work towards the entire organization, and be part of the Operations team.

You will oversee the legal aspects of our business. You will safeguard our reputation by guaranteeing that the company strictly follows the law and give legal advice to management about all relevant issues.

Tasks include:
  • Handle agreement negotiations with our customers (in collaboration with our sales team) and suppliers.
  • Research and evaluate different risk factors regarding business decisions and operations.
  • Draft and solidify agreements, contracts and other legal documents to ensure the company’s full legal rights.
  • Provide clarification on legal language or specifications to everyone in the organization.
  • Help ensure that we have an ethical supply-chain.
  • Help out with filling out security related documentation requested by our customers, e.g. security questionnaires.
  • Conduct internal audits of the business.


You will be responsible for the company’s compliance against GDPR, SOC 2, and HIPAA (and other frameworks if it becomes applicable). You will identify, evaluate and counter compliance risks, as well as continuously monitor and carry out compliance activities in our operations. You will be responsible for documentation, policies, and processes linked to Compliance.

Tasks include:
  • Identify what is needed for compliance with various laws, regulations, and certifications applicable to our business, and take a leading role in implementing what’s needed for compliance.
  • Keep informed regarding pending industry changes, trends, and best practices and assess the potential impact of these changes on organizational processes.
  • Uphold our compliance with SOC2, GDPR and HIPAA.
  • Write documentation for our systems in accordance with the requirements of various laws, regulations, and certifications.
  • Be responsible for and conduct overall risk management activities: identifying, assessing, and controlling security threats and data-related risks. As well as anticipating new threats and actively working to prevent them from happening.
  • Examine and develop our Information Security Program, which is our governing program including procedures and policies designed to protect our systems and assets from security threats.
  • Be the project manager of our compliance audits.
  • Be a key member of our Compliance & Security Committee.
  • Be responsible for reviewing and reporting internal procedures regarding the handling of personal data etc.
  • Provide employee training on compliance related topics, policies, and procedures.
  • Answer questions from customers regarding compliance and help the sales team with questions regarding legal and compliance when negotiating customer contracts.
