An extremely detail-oriented and business-minded brand marketer with at least 7-10 years of experience managing a category-leading brand or brand portfolio at a leading consumer products company, with specific experience planning and executing an end-to-end product launch (and ensuing marketing throughout the product lifecycle).

What We Offer

Salary is competitive and dependent on experience/accomplishments, 401K, full medical, dental, vision, and paid gym membership.

General Counsel

The Drip Club is looking for an experienced, hands-on attorney who will work directly with our founders and executive team to manage the company’s legal affairs, regulatory compliance matters, and day-to-day operations. This role will carry direct P&L responsibility, and require the individual to have a strong working knowledge of the law, regulatory compliance matters in the US and abroad, corporate formalities, agreements and contracts, litigation, risk management, and general business management.

What You’ll Do

  • Build strong internal legal practice, leveraging outside counsel on an as-needed basis for specialty practice areas
  • Product liability – develop proactive risk mitigation strategy through the implementation of comprehensive procedures that integrate liability mitigation considerations into product R&D, manufacturing, and distribution processes
  • Tax – keep up with local, state, federal, and international excise tax policy on electronic cigarettes, and work in conjunction with the company’s tax advisors, accountants, and finance personnel to ensure the company’s continued compliance with all applicable tax regulations.

You’ll be directly responsible for managing the company’s outside various outside counsel, and ensure their fair and accurate billing.

As an integral part of the management team, you will be the executive responsible for architecting elegant and at times creative solutions to both internal and external legal and operational issues, and play an active role in both “offense” and “defense” – in proactively mitigating managing risk to facilitate sound company growth while dealing with existing issues in a responsive manner that balances pragmatism with legal best practices. Additionally, you will be involved in the planning and risk evaluation/compliance analysis processes as the company evaluates new business growth opportunities.
A key area of focus will be creating and managing the company’s US and EU regulatory compliance program, which will ensure that the company’s products are compliant with the relevant regulations in all territories to which products are sold. The GC will additionally be responsible for taking a proactive role in keeping up with developing case law across state, federal, and international courts.
