We're looking for a seasoned Principal Counsel to join the Product & Tech Legal Team as part of the Consumer Product Group. This role reports to the Senior Director, Product & Tech Legal (Consumer) and is based in Los Gatos.

To entertain the world is no small task, so we rely on really smart people who know a lot about how technology and data can create great content and high-quality member experiences globally. Our mission as a Consumer Product Legal team is to empower product innovation at A Media-Streaming and Video-Rental Company by delivering impactful, effective legal support. We don't sit in a dark corner of the Upside Down holding a giant ‘no' stamp; we are an integrated part of product development, partnering with our product managers, stakeholders, designers, engineers and data scientists from ideation to launch. We drive strategic, effective collaboration with cross-functional and regional legal partners and think critically about how we can keep scaling the impact of our team.

As Principal Counsel, you are passionate about helping our business partners discern a practical real-world risk from a theoretical one. You have the diplomatic skills to unite people together and guide them through impasses by fostering confidence. You thrive in a loosely-coupled world where thoughtfulness and creativity govern, not rule.
