FOX Bet - Two powerhouse companies. One amazing brand

We are looking for a Director, Legal Affairs to join our busy and dynamic team based in our Miami Office.

Why we need you: -

This is a great time to join us - already the undisputed global number one in online poker, having dealt over 1.5 billion hands, and with fast growing casino and sportsbook products, in part, driven by recent acquisitions of Sky Betting and Gaming in the UK and BetEasy, in Australia, we have ambitious plans for further growth.

In your role, you’ll work under the guidance of the Deputy General Counsel and provide legal advice and counsel on commercial and corporate transactions. You’ll lead transactions, work independently and as part of a team, and forge close working relationships throughout the organization.

We’ll look for you to provide critical legal advice and business counsel to the Company on a wide array of sophisticated and complex matters. You’ll independently manage legal aspects of commercial transactions, M&A and direct investment transactions with little supervision including conducting and managing legal due diligence, drafting and negotiating transaction documentation, coordinating closings and managing outside counsel.

You will also be involved in structuring, negotiating, reviewing and drafting a variety of agreements for key transactions and you’ll have ownership of the legal aspects of commercial transactions, including transactions involving gaming and intellectual property. 

Who are we looking for:

You most likely have 3+ years of corporate legal experience and hold a J.D. from a top academic institution. You are going to be someone who can clearly show experience from a nationally recognized law firm. Within your working experience you’ll have strong exposure to commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and general corporate transactions. You are a legal practitioner possessing excellent judgment, solid character and personal integrity.

We’re looking for you to be a member of good standing of a state bar and able to be admitted to practice law in at least one U.S. jurisdiction. In addition, we’d ideally like you to have exposure to gaming and IP law but this is not a ‘must have’.

What’s in in for you?

The salary for this job is based on experience, so while we are not able to go into detail at this stage, we can say that we offer great salary packages and also like to throw in a discretionary annual performance bonus.

We offer 100% paid health, dental and vision insurance for you and a substantial employer contribution towards your qualified dependent coverage. In addition, you also receive other benefits at no cost such as life insurance, short term disability and long term disability. We offer a generous 401(k) plan with a 100% employer match and no vesting or waiting period.  In addition, you are entitled to a personal interest allowance which encourages our employees to enhance their skills or pursue a hobby. A baby bounty is offered to our employees as well, granting $1,500 upon the birth of a child. We also offer generous paid time off right from day one for full time employees, in addition to 9 paid holidays.

Our in-house training and development team delivers fantastic support in terms of developing your skills and helping you progress your career. In the office there is always free fresh fruit, endless snacks, drinks and a coffee station including expresso and cappuccino. We also provide catered lunch to our employees every day.

We look for fun ways to celebrate and come together socially including bowling, team happy hours, and our annual holiday party!

What happens next?

We will aim to get back to you as soon as possible. If you meet the criteria, then we’ll invite you to a phone interview and if that goes well we’ll meet you for a face-to-face interview
