    As Wikimedia pursues a new global strategic direction, our Legal department is tasked with solving many legal questions, including some that no one has fully considered before. We are looking for a skilled, privacy-focused lawyer to join our in-house legal department as Senior Counsel to provide critical advice and counsel on how we collect and manage data, build effective new products, and respond to the changing data protection landscape worldwide. This will include managing Wikimedia’s responses to user questions and requests, advising engineers and designers on effective and privacy-protective methods to collect data, supporting our privacy-related public policy work, and more. Ideal candidates will have the skills and knowledge to provide holistic and creative advice and counsel in a variety of contexts.
