Description

About us

Elvie is a health and lifestyle brand developing smarter technology for women. We are committed to building extraordinary products that improve the health and lives of women everywhere and at all stages of life.

Our first product, Elvie Trainer, is an award-winning app-connected Kegel trainer that helps women strengthen the pelvic floor via fun, five-minute workouts. Launched in October 2015 to great acclaim, we took the wellness industry by storm! Our street cred includes more than 12 awards for innovation and design, including the prestigious CES Innovation Award, IDA Design Award and Red Dot Award. As a business, Elvie has been recognized as one of Wired’s ‘hottest start-ups’, named as one of the 15 start-ups “To Watch” by The Sunday Times and both products have been featured in the Oscar Nominee Gift Bags.

We recently launched our second innovation: Elvie Pump, the world’s first silent wearable breast pump, which is making it possible for new mothers to pump anytime, anywhere. Elvie Pump received international praise following its unveiling on the catwalk at London Fashion Week and at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

In April 2019, Elvie announced a $42 million Series B from IPGL, Octopus Ventures and Impact Ventures bringing the total raised thus far to over $50 million. Our Series B represented the largest ever fundraise in femtech. This new round of financing will accelerate Elvie’s research and development efforts, as well as help grow brand awareness and distribution for Elvie Pump and Elvie Trainer across the Americas, Europe and Asia. We currently have offices in London and New York.

The Role

Elvie is looking for a self-motivated, dynamic lawyer to join us as our first Legal Counsel / Head of Legal. You should be excited by the challenges that come along with building a disruptive business and working at a high growth company and you pride yourself on being an independent and strategic player who can act decisively in situations requiring quick but thorough analysis and decision-making. You are detail-oriented, excel at communicating complex issues to business leaders succinctly and persuasively, and are able to prioritize and re-prioritize based on changing business needs.

You will be our first point of contact for all things Legal, responsible for supporting Elvie's rapid expansion efforts around the world. This is a generalist role requiring a thorough understanding of Elvie's multifaceted business and oversight over various legal workstreams, including sales and marketing (commercial contracts primarily), operations, corporate, employment, privacy and data protection, and Intellectual Property. Our work is cutting edge, revolutionary and always evolving so it will be up to you to continuously assess and advise the teams on legal issues using a creative and pragmatic approach. You will report to the President, Corporate & Commercial and have high interaction with all levels of the organisation.
