We are hiring a Legal Counsel to join our growing team in Lund to advise and provide strategic direction to our product team, business team, and other key stakeholders on a range of issues, including regulatory, marketing, data security, and privacy.
Since its inception, open banking has been a driving force for innovation influencing many industries along with finance. Being able to access transaction data from consumers and enterprises, as well as process direct payments, creates many opportunities for businesses to both improve the processes behind their existing services as well as to generate new propositions, products, and applications. Finshark exists to enable payment-led product innovation by removing all the complexities of the global open finance ecosystem.
We are looking for a Legal Counsel to support the business in a broad range of legal matters. In this role you will lead the work with advising different stakeholders within Finshark and managing the legal aspects of all our products. We are challenging and disrupting the open banking industry wherever possible while always staying on the right side of PSD2 and any requirements imposed by Finansinspektionen. We are looking for people who love solving problems and innovating wherever possible.
As Legal Counsel you will:
- Advise on various regulatory and commercial legal matters.
- Support the organisation in compliance matters by closely working with risk and compliance functions
- Support, coordinate and collaborate across Finshark’s compliance, product, engineering, and business teams relating to product development
- Work closely with and advising the board members and C-suite executives
