From your first day at Roku, you'll make a valuable - and valued - contribution. We're a fast-growing public company where no one is a bystander. We offer you the opportunity to delight millions of TV streamers worldwide while gaining meaningful experience across various disciplines.

About The Team And Role

Roku is seeking an experienced and self-motivated transactions attorney with a strong understanding of advanced digital/programmatic advertising to join its legal team. You will provide legal guidance to some of the most interesting and novel issues arising in the TV streaming industry. This position will support and counsel Roku's ad sales and ad operations organizations. In this role, you will:
Draft, review and negotiate agreements with publishers and other content providers, SSPs, ad tech platforms and ad tech technology providers.
Structure and negotiate a wide range of commercial agreements in support of Roku's advertising platform, including master services agreements, vendor agreements, and data integration arrangements.
Advise on data privacy issues in the context of commercial transactions, with broad knowledge of privacy law landscape.
Collaborate cross-functionally with a wide variety of Roku business units, including the publisher ad solutions, ad ops, content & services, finance, tax, product, engineering, and marketing teams.
Support the continuous improvement of standard form contracts and legal processes.
Help develop scalable processes to allow the advertising team the flexibility necessary to move quickly.
Keep up to date on the latest developments in laws, regulation and industry trends applicable to martech, ad tech, digital media and technology, Big Data, OTT and IOT, including data privacy laws, consumer protection laws, and other guidance from relevant agencies.

The successful candidate must have experience negotiating supply-side agreements and IOs with publishers and SSPs, and a demonstrated ability to translate legal requirements into actionable advice for the ad sales and ad ops teams. You must have a solid understanding of digital advertising technology, internet technology and cloud computing technology, keen analytical abilities and excellent judgment, a pragmatic approach to problem solving, flexibility to adapt and thrive in an environment that is constantly changing, and the ability to make smart decisions in the face of ambiguity and imperfect information. The role requires an entrepreneurial mindset that enables you to work independently. This is an amazing opportunity to play a key role in supporting the company's rapid growth.

We're excited if you have
At least 7 years of combined transactional legal experience at a law firm and in-house, that includes working with internet, technology and/or media companies in the ad tech/data space (e.g., ad serving, programmatic, data management, measurement and analytics).
Familiarity with both B2B and B2C aspects of the digital advertising ecosystem.
Familiarity with insertion orders and IAB terms and conditions for digital advertising.
Experience working with publishers and other content providers.
Excellent working knowledge of data privacy, marketing and consumer protection laws.
Significant experience drafting and negotiating SaaS agreements, and similar complex services agreements, including related privacy and data security provisions.
Skills and experience necessary to advise on a broad range of the legal issues related to digital advertising businesses, including intellectual property, data protection, consumer protection and privacy issues in the context of advertising related technology (e.g., use of beacons, cookies and cookie alternatives across devices, programmatic technologies and matching of datasets to target ads to various audience segments).
Experience working in a cross-department, cross-functional role requiring good client relationship skills, including the ability to independently solicit the advice and input of different stakeholders as necessary and appropriate.
Excellent negotiating skills, keen analytical abilities, a pragmatic approach to problem solving, as well as a track record of success in handling complex business and legal issues in a fast-paced, agile and evolving technology-driven business environment.
Proven ability to quickly understand complex products and services, while identifying key issues and risks and offering creative solutions for business enablement.
A Bachelor's degree and a Juris Doctorate degree from a U.S. accredited law school.
A license to practice law in the state of New York or California.

The Roku culture

Roku is a great place for people who want to work in a fast-paced environment where everyone is focused on the company's success rather than their own. We try to surround ourselves with people who are great at their jobs, who are easy to work with, and who keep their egos in check. We appreciate a sense of humor. We believe a fewer number of very talented folks can do more for less cost than a larger number of less talented teams. We're independent thinkers with big ideas who act boldly, move fast and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. In short, at Roku you'll be part of a company that's changing how the world watches TV.

We have a unique culture that we are proud of. We think of ourselves primarily as problem-solvers, which itself is a two-part idea. We come up with the solution, but the solution isn't real until it is built and delivered to the customer. That penchant for action gives us a pragmatic approach to innovation, one that has served us well since 2002.
