Why We Work at Dun & Bradstreet

We are at a transformational moment in our company journey - and we're so excited about it. Each day, we are finding new ways to strengthen our award-winning culture, and to accelerate creativity, innovation and growth. Our purpose is to help customers improve business performance with Dun & Bradstreet's Data Cloud and Live Business Identity, and we're wildly passionate and committed to this purpose. So, if you're looking to make an immediate impact at a company that welcomes bold and diverse thinking, come join us!

We are seeking a commercial lawyer who will play a lead role in negotiating customer agreements, with a focus on data protection and privacy terms and data processing agreements.

You will work closely with D&B's sales organization, and collaborate with D&B experts in privacy, security, product, finance, and operations with respect to licensing D&B products, data, and services across multiple lines of business. You will have customer-facing responsibility for negotiating customer and partnership contracts, large and small, spanning multiple industries. In particular, the role will focus on the heavy demand of customers to understand the flow of data between the customer, D&B, and D&B subprocessors, the collection of personal data, and how customers' and D&B's data is protected. The role will also involve thinking through and implementing ways to streamline contract processes.

Key Responsibilities

  • Negotiate and draft customer contracts, including master service agreements and product order forms, with an understanding of pricing terms and protections, revenue recognition, exposure and risk.
  • Negotiate data processing agreements, data transfer agreements, and the privacy portions of other customer and partner agreements.
  • Understand D&B's products across multiple lines of business, including the various flows of data associated with those products.
  • Engage business colleagues and leaders, and work with cross-functional stakeholders across geographies to close deals and improve processes.

    Key Requirements
    • JD with 2-4 years relevant law firm or in-house work experience
    • Thorough knowledge of contracts, contract law, and contract negotiation, preferably in SaaS and licensing
    • Working knowledge of US and global privacy laws (e.g., GDPR, CCPA). Digital marketing or ad tech experience is a plus
    • Able to work independently in a fast-paced, high-volume environment
    • Ability to thrive and deliver in a highly demanding, innovative and constantly changing corporate and regulatory environment
    • JD from an ABA law school and admittance to practice in NJ or eligibility for limited license for in-house counsel under RULE 1:27-2 is required

      If any of this excites you, we want to hear from you!
