Jellyvision is hiring a Corporate Counsel

Who we are

We at Jellyvision are the proud parents of ALEX®, an interactive employee communications platform that makes tricky decisions—like choosing and using employee benefits—easier and more enjoyable. The success of ALEX has exceeded our wildest work-related dreams, which is why we need a talented Corporate Counsel to help us.

How you’ll help

Your two biggest responsibilities are (a) to negotiate fair terms for our software subscriptions, and (b) to help keep us legally compliant – doing both with care, style, and delight.   

What you’ll do 

  • The bread and butter of your role will be focused on deals.  As a growth tech company, we are buying services, software, and support galore -- and, happily, we are selling even more, often to the Fortune 500 companies that we’re proud to call our customers.  At Jellyvision, we read our contracts carefully, draft our contracts clearly, and agree only to terms that are mutually fair and that we know we can satisfy.  That requires careful review, creative drafting, respectful negotiation, and internal vetting with collaboration across the organization. You should have good business judgment and the confidence to suggest creative solutions to identified risks.
  • Beyond that, Jellyvision faces every type of legal issue you would expect from a SaaS company.  From regulatory compliance to human resources to content review to privacy to intellectual property to data security, among many other areas -- legal is a critical partner in running and managing our business, so a passion for any of these is a plus.
  • You should anticipate legal risk and come up with appropriate means to mitigate such risk while partnering with business to get to a “yes” answer whenever possible.
  • And ideally do all of the above while suggesting and implementing systemic changes that improve our speed and quality, too.
  • You’ll report to the General Counsel.  At present, you both will be the only lawyers at Jellyvision.

Experience you’ll need

  • 3+ years of experience as a licensed attorney, preferably handling transactional work. 
  • Significant experience negotiating contract terms to close deals.
  • High work quality and ability to resolve time sensitive issues with a high degree of precision.
  • Ability to stay cool under pressure and manage a high-volume workload without sacrificing quality.
  • Background with information security, compliance, and/or privacy are all pluses.
  • Fintech or benefits tech experience not required – but also a plus.
  • Admission to the State Bar of Illinois is preferred -- ability to practice law in Illinois is required.
  • Impeccable integrity and strong analytical skills.

Skills you’ll need

  • Effective communication – both written and oral.
  • Excellent judgment and decision quality – we have a seasonal business and will need you to run deals with little oversight during our peak selling season.
  • Accountability – we’re a company of people who do what we say we’re going to do.
  • Resilience – grit matters.
  • Bias towards action – we’re looking for someone who not only sees ways to improve but who will also lead the charge on making said changes.
  • Attention to detail – like, a lot.

How do I apply?

We look forward to hearing about you and what you do. Please make sure your application includes:

  • A cover letter that highlights three reasons you think you’d be great for the gig, focusing on how your past experience has prepared you for this kind of position. We’re interested in learning who you are, what you love to do, and why you’d like to bring those skills to Jellyvision.
  • Your resume. 

Anything else?

Our credo is a simple one: be helpful. And we think we can be most helpful if our workforce is as diverse in thought, perspective, and culture as the people who use our products. We are looking to add amazing people to our team who will bring diversity across many lines, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity, sex, and country of origin.

Thanks for your interest in Jellyvision!

An Insider's view of Jellyvision

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Jellyvision is a place where I truly feel like leadership wants me to be healthy/happy. They really show me they want you to have a work/life balance. The company does everything they can to avoid unwarranted stress with unlimited PTO, flexible Working From Home, emails reminding me to take care of myself, and ways to get help from my teammates.


Implementation Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

The product team is full of self-driven, curious, scrappy individuals. The most successful are the least afraid of jumping into ambiguity and getting creative in overcoming the numerous obstacles thrown at them every day. Their ability to adapt to change quickly while keeping their teams calm, cool, and collected makes the job look easy!


Principal Product Manager, New Concepts

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.


VP of Implementation

What are Jellyvision Perks + Benefits

Jellyvision Benefits Overview

* Competitive pay, 401(k) with matching and benefits. We pay 100% of the cost of premiums for medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance for our employees (as long as you qualify for our tobacco-free discount; if you’re a tobacco user, your medical premiums will be higher than $0). We also cover a really nice chunk of the cost of premiums for spouse/dependent medical, dental and vision insurance.

* Casual dress and a flexible schedule. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever, like everyone else here.
Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although most hours the place is deathly quiet (we're a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes a nice way to spend the day.

* Free food. Every week, we stock our kitchen with free healthy snack foods, and we have a catered lunch every other week to give people a reason to hang out and eat together.

* Easy transportation and lots of love for folks who bike to work. We’re really close to the North/Clybourn red line stop and the Halsted (#8) bus (right by the Apple Store and Mega Whole Foods too), and we have a transit FSA that allows you to dedicate pre-tax dollars to public transportation expenses. A number of our employees like to bike to work, so we also have bike storage, showers and lockers in the office. And for those without their own bike in the city, we offer free divvy memberships – complete with Jellyvision bike helmets you can borrow from the office.

* Did we mention our yoga and meditation classes? We bring a pro instructor right to the office. Fully subsidized by Jellyvision and fully optional, btw.

* Oh! And we have a massage chair. Not just any massage chair, my friend. It’s the Renew 2 Zero-Gravity Massage Chair by Brookstone®. Feeling a little stiff? Sit down. Relax. Feel better? Good. Okay, back to work.
