3 Things About Us

  • We create direct experiences that generate brand awareness and conversion; design smart technology that mechanizes the customer acquisition journey; and partner with founders and talent that accelerate and sustain business growth.

  • We dont want people who think outside of the box. We want people who question if we need a box, how to get rid of the box, and what the box will look like 100 years from now.

Your Objective:

  • Oversee all legal strategy and advise on business decisions that span product, patents, privacy, deal structuring, intellectual property, and overall regulatory, commercial, and corporate compliance.


What You Will Get Done:

  • You will develop and advise on a wide range of commercial agreements and contracts, including partner agreements, NDAs, influencer agreements, employment contracts, privacy statements, data and privacy policies, and more.

  • You will counsel on all product initiatives, considering law and risk factors such as privacy, patents, and other industry-specific regulations, while ensuring the utmost compliance with regulatory standards and the security and trust of our clients and consumers.

  • You will architect the overall structure of the dtx companys legal organization, developing the companys standards, policies, and procedures that make it among the most trusted, safe, and respected places to work and/or partner.

  • You will oversee the selection of outside legal teams, serving as the main point of contact with external vendors, managing costs effectively, and ensuring a balance of internal execution and outside counsel. You are comfortable working through tasks big and small but also know when and how to outsource for the sake of efficiency.


Why You Are Great for dtx:

  • You have at least 10+ years of progressive legal experience, ideally having worked both in a top-tier firm as well as in-house at a high-growth consumer enterprise. You have a JD from a respected institution and are a member of the NY bar.

  • You have legal experience that ranges widely across commercial expansion, privacy, intellectual property, employment law, corporate governance and more. What direct experience you lack you make up for with enthusiasm, curiosity, and a strong desire to learn and push innovation. You have a particular curiosity and interest in direct-to-consumer commerce.

  • You are flexible, appreciate working across numerous teams and challenges at any given time, and thrive in an agile, fast-moving work environment. You unrelentingly mitigate legal risk while maintaining a business-minded approach.

  • Your drive, tenacity, and get-it-done attitude is matched only by your unwavering ethics, discretion, integrity, and trustworthiness. You are well equipped with a strong perspective and low ego.
