This role is all about judiciousness. Tech products start off simple but grow in complexity to keep up with the demands of users and paying clients. We need to ensure that our product always remains a means to an end - healthy socialization.

You are effectively the legal advocate for our product, keeping leadership in check and charting a more equitable path to success. This role is highly inventive in addition to being methodical. Success for this role will be gauged across several facets:

  • Showing a demonstrated ability to balancing economic motivations with emotional needs
  • Understanding target audiences and ideal use cases of our application, knowing the 'rules of engagement' and 'laws of the land' for industry and society
  • Formulating testing frameworks to validate feature requests and road-map objectives, including user studies (both economic and psychographic)
  • Create dissonance where necessary. Challenge the implementation of the road-map to validate objectives in accordance with founder's mission

Here’s what you need:

  • Patience and vigilance to see how progress unfolds, this is an ongoing case. Comfortable with being an 'outsider'.
  • You've worked in legal or have written at length about American society, respect the rule of law and understand how to remain objective in the face of evolving challenges.
  • You understand court methodology or investigative journalism, are capable of asking the right questions and drawing conclusions without vilifying.
  • Experience with technology, building and testing products and legal compliance is encouraged but not required.


• This is an unpaid position until we're able to secure funding. The business is currently bootstrapped.
