Job description

We believe each moment in sports can change the plan, change the game and change lives. That’s why our mission is to build the world’s most powerful network of sports video and data to empower teams to make every moment count.

How? By hiring people around the world who want to help us support coaches, players, analysts, recruiters, teams, clubs and fans. Hudl customers use our products to capture video, analyze data, share highlights and a lot more. They stay ahead of the game with the latest technology and we help them achieve their goals.

Want to join us? We’re hiring a Legal Counsel to join our Elite Business Unit (EBU), where you will come in and play a part in our continued international growth. Hudl’s EBU serves some of the biggest names in professional sports across the globe, and you will join Hudl’s Global Legal Team working with our Legal Director and the rest of the legal team to support our EBU across the globe.

You will be focused on providing legal counsel to Hudl’s EBU providing balanced, efficient and practical legal advice. Whilst a substantial portion of the work is commercial in nature, the ideal candidate will be a generalist comfortable advising across a number of legal areas.

  • Resilient. Sometimes our team is in high-pressure situations. But we like to have fun with our jobs, so a positive attitude and sense of humour are appreciated.

You Will

  • Partner with the business. You’ll provide legal guidance to internal clients across multiple departments around the globe as it relates to the Elite Business Unit, including BU leaders, Sales, Marketing, and Product

  • Provide career growth. We’re lifelong learners who encourage professional development. We’ll give you tons of resources and opportunities to keep growing.
