Roku is changing how the world watches TV

Roku is the #1 TV streaming platform in the US, and we’ve set our sights on powering every television in the world. Roku pioneered streaming to the TV. Our mission is to be the TV streaming platform that connects the entire TV ecosystem. We connect consumers to the content they love, enable content publishers to build and monetize large audiences, and provide advertisers unique capabilities to engage consumers.

From your first day at Roku, you’ll make a valuable — and valued — contribution. We’re a fast-growing public company where no one is a bystander. We offer you the opportunity to delight millions of TV streamers around the world while gaining meaningful experience across a variety of disciplines.

 

About the Role

Roku, Inc. is seeking an experienced and self-motivated attorney with a strong understanding of data privacy and consumer protection laws to join its legal team. You will provide legal guidance to some of the most interesting and novel issues arising in the TV streaming industry. This position will provide strategic product counseling and compliance advice to support Roku's products and services from the initial stages of design and development through launch and implementation.

 

What you'll be doing

  • Work closely with the Product and Engineering teams developing Roku's consumer electronics, Roku's streaming platform, and The Roku Channel on solutions that proactively manage legal risk while advancing our business goals and protecting our users around the world
  • Advise on privacy and data security terms for agreements relating to content and digital product distribution, and promotions and sponsorships
  • Provide guidance on a wide range of legal issues, including consumer protection, privacy and data protection laws and regulations, to ensure that Roku follows applicable U.S. and international legal and regulatory requirements, as well as industry best practices, through the application of privacy-by-design principles
  • Review user flows and user journeys, product feature guides, advertising collateral, promotions and other user-facing communications to ensure compliance with applicable data protection, consumer protection and advertising laws, regulations, and standards
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with a wide variety of Roku business units, including the programming, content and services, ad sales, ad partnerships, ad ops, product, engineering, marketing and customer support teams
  • Help develop scalable processes for legal review of new product launches
  • Keep up to date on the latest developments in the laws, regulations and industry trends applicable to media, ad tech, Big Data, OTT, IOT and smart devices, including federal and state data privacy laws, consumer protection laws, and other guidance from relevant agencies

 

We're excited if you have

  • At least 10 years of experience as a practicing attorney with a significant portion of it working in a product counseling role in support of the product team for a consumer-facing, Internet company
  • Strong working knowledge of global privacy and data security laws (such as the GDPR, CCPA, VPPA, COPPA, and TCPA). Experience with other consumer laws (such as FTC advertising guidelines, negative option laws, CVAA, and Communications Decency Act) a plus
  • Working knowledge of FTC advertising guidelines, CAN-SPAM, and rules governing contests & sweepstakes, social media, and other consumer protection laws
  • Familiarity with content and digital product distribution agreements, including MVPD, DMVPD, and application development agreement (e.g., Apple, Google, etc.)
  • Significant in-house experience advising on data privacy, data protection and the legal and regulatory aspects of product development in the technology space (experience at a consumer-facing, Internet company preferred)
  • A passion for technology and ability to understand complex technology and product use cases quickly
  • Bachelor's degree and a Juris Doctorate degree from a U.S. accredited law school
  • Licensed to practice law in the State of California

The successful candidate should have a strong working knowledge of global privacy and data security laws and regulations, experience supporting product launches and a demonstrated ability to translate legal requirements into actionable advice for Product, User Experience and Engineering teams. They should have a good, general understanding of online media, digital advertising technology, Internet technology and cloud computing technology, and prior experience implementing privacy-by-design principles. The successful candidate will have keen analytical abilities and excellent judgment, a pragmatic approach to problem solving, flexibility to adapt and thrive in an environment that is constantly changing, and the ability to make smart decisions in the face of ambiguity and imperfect information. The role requires an entrepreneurial mindset that enables you to work independently. This is an amazing opportunity to play a key role in supporting the company's rapid growth.

The Roku Culture

Roku is a great place for people who want to work in a fast-paced environment where everyone is focused on the company's success rather than their own. We try to surround ourselves with people who are great at their jobs, who are easy to work with, and who keep their egos in check. We appreciate a sense of humor. We believe a fewer number of very talented folks can do more for less cost than a larger number of less talented teams. We’re independent thinkers with big ideas who act boldly, move fast and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. In short, at Roku you'll be part of a company that's changing how the world watches TV. 

We have a unique culture that we are proud of. We think of ourselves primarily as problem-solvers, which itself is a two-part idea. We come up with the solution, but the solution isn't real until it is built and delivered to the customer. That penchant for action gives us a pragmatic approach to innovation, one that has served us well since 2002.
