Andrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times called us a “sweeping transformation,” while the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Award called us a Top 3 Industry Game Changer of the Past Ten Years.
We are seeking an Associate to help launch the Talent Product Management team in New York.

• Manage intelligence on established and emerging competitors
• Build and maintain product management infrastructure, including feedback loops with clients and lawyers, performance dashboards, and our feature backlog
Over time, you will lead the development and launch of new talent solutions or enhancements through the complete product lifecycle.
