General Counsel

Think Research is changing the way healthcare is delivered – and not in the Buckley’s “tastes awful but it works” kind of way. We’re building software to give clinicians the information they need to treat patients better and faster. We’re growing fast (2,000 health care facilities across 4 continents!) and need some help keeping up with the demand.

We’re seeking a highly motivated strategy and business-oriented lawyer to join our Senior Executive team as General Counsel. Drawing on your previous experience in the SaaS industry, the General Counsel will be responsible for the provision of expert and strategic legal advice and the overall management of legal affairs.

  • Managing capital markets matters, including capital raising processes with the CFO and CEO
  • Managing corporate governance matters with the Board of Directors
  • Managing regulatory and compliance matters across multiple jurisdictions
  • Working with the company’s Chief Privacy Officer to execute on globally market leading privacy and personal information matters
  • Administering and maintaining risk management initiatives within the company
