Our community of technologists thinks disruptively to deliver pragmatic solutions for our clients' most complex challenges. We are curious minds who come together as collaborative and inclusive teams to push boundaries, free to be ourselves and make our mark in tech.

Do you want to be an important part of our dynamic in-house legal department in Germany and a part of our extended global legal team with colleagues in UK, USA, Australia, China, India and Brazil? Do you want to work in an informal environment that values people over process? We are looking for a self-motivated lawyer who brings a pragmatic, business partner approach to legal advice.

As a Legal Counsel (m/f/d) at ThoughtWorks Germany, you'll be responsible for:

  • Drafting, reviewing, negotiating, executing, and archiving of a wide variety of agreements with the focus on IT and software development agreements
  • supporting the German and European legal team with the review of commercial agreements, data protection matters, employment law related topics and administrative tasks
  • providing ongoing real-time legal advice on existing and new laws, regulations and guidelines
  • owning specific projects within the EU legal department.

Here's what you'll bring:

  • Completed your German legal education with above average grades and are qualified to practice law in Germany.
  • Minimum few years experience with an in-house legal department of a professional services or technology firm; negotiating commercial agreements, ideally including contracts for agile software development services
  • have commercial, employment law and data protection experience in Germany
  • fluency in speaking, writing and editing in German and English. Additional languages a plus.

And this is what you can expect:

  • ThoughtWorks offers centrally located office spaces which enables agile and productive collaboration with a startup flair
  • You will receive a public transportation card, a personal development budget, training leave, a company pension scheme as well as an accident and business travel insurance
  • To do a great job, we provide you with a high-end Macbook Pro and libraries in our offices
  • Fruits, snacks and beverages are offered, next to a company lunch and learn session on each Friday. We also enjoy spending time together by playing ping-pong or doing other fun activities in the office
  • Besides our famous Annual Party, you can join us for a summer party, regular Office get-togethers, local office days, AwayDay and other social events
  • We are a global community of technologists and like to share our knowledge - not only within the company but also by writing articles, doing meetups or speaking at conferences - if you like.

"Free to make your mark. Free to be yourself."

You are always welcome here. Inclusivity is in our DNA. Far above any tech skills, we value respect, empathy, and open-mindedness. We have zero tolerance for intolerance.
