  • Build relationships with procurement office representatives at government agencies and prime contractors that allow you to solve problems and get-ahead of issues.
  • Provide contract lifecycle advice, from monitoring large contracts, assisting in negotiations, resolving performance issues, identifying risks and suggested mitigations, and ensuring compliance with policies, procedures, and contract requirements.
  • Manage data rights reporting on contract deliverables.
  • Provide practical counsel to product, engineering, sales, and delivery teams on intellectual property, privacy, regulatory, and employment law issues.
  • Advise on ethics requirements and restrictions for employees leaving government service.
  • Design, implement, and iterate on policies, processes, and procedures to manage legal and business risk across the government vertical.
  • Develop training materials and conduct training sessions for product and business teams.
  • Support federal security and information assurance compliance teams.
  • Manage bid protest litigation.

Ideally you 'd have:

  • JD and a member of the Washington DC, Missouri, or California Bar in good standing.
  • At least 8+ years of law firm, in-house, and/or government experience with training in government contracts, data rights, and bid protest litigation.
  • Passion for partnering with business development teams and closing revenue deals.
  • Experience with federal acquisitions and subcontracting and ideas on how to optimize the process and suggest improvements to policymakers.
  • An ability to translate between business and technical risk and communicate clearly to business and technical constituencies.
  • Roll-up your sleeves attitude to tackle projects large and small and a collaborative, low-ego approach to collaborating across the organization.
  • Deep interest in machine learning technology and applications.
  • Excellent organizational and communications skills.
  • Ability to obtain and maintain the required security clearance.
