Job Opportunity at Ikigai Law

ABOUT IKIGAI LAW

We are a law and policy firm with a sharp focus on technology and innovation. Our mission is to enable the future. We do this by helping businesses thrive in cutting-edge sectors like aerospace, AI, blockchain, cyber security, data protection, e-commerce, fintech, gaming, health-tech and several others. We work with some of the world’s most innovative companies. Our clients range from early stage start-ups to the world’s largest technology companies. Our team comprises of specialist lawyers with domain-expertise in various technology-based sectors. We are selective about the work we do. And choose to work in sectors that sit at the heart of technology and innovation. We write about all things tech on our LinkedIn page and blog.

ABOUT OUR PRODUCT TEAM

Our product team helps tech businesses navigate regulatory environments while they launch and scale. We work on products where the law is unclear or absent. And help our clients develop business models which were unknown, if not unimaginable, a few years ago. We have been fortunate to be part of shaping several first-tomarket products. Products which break the mould and create disruptive technologies. We see ourselves as an extension of a company’s in-house product team. Where we develop the product with our clients. We come in at the strategic and ideation stage – often working backwards from a single line value proposition. At the same time, we also zoom-in, combing through UI/UX of a product to stress-test it against the law. Although we work with many tech-driven sectors, fintech is one of our core practice areas. We are deeply entrenched in the digital payments, digital lending, neo-banking, and payment intermediation space. In our monthly newsletter ‘FinTales’ we probe legal and policy issues that impact the fintech-verse.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for someone who loves technology and how it interacts with the law. And has 3 to 6 years of post-qualification experience with tech-legal issues. Two years of work experience with a law firm is a must. Experience with an in-house legal team at a technology company is a bonus. Our product team demands a knack for understanding tech products. And what brings them to life. We are looking for someone who is receptive to evolving regulatory environments. And much like our entrepreneurial counterparts can ‘thrive in chaos’.
