Job Description

Working to solve our climate crisis is the most important mission of our time, and the most exciting problem to be working on. Overstory’s mission is to help solve our climate crisis by providing real-time intelligence about the planet’s vegetation. In our first step toward this mission, we are applying machine learning to satellite imagery to track forests and vegetation, helping to reduce the risk of wildfires and power outages.

We have already proven our business model and we’re all united behind our ambitious vision to scale up this model to help humanity and the planet. We recently raised a round of funding, led by Convective Capital. Other investors include: B Capital Group, Moxxie Ventures, Capital T, Pale Blue Dot and many other climate-focussed investors.

If you want to have a real impact and solve some of the world's most complex challenges with advanced technology, come work with our talented and passionate team. Overstory is based in Amsterdam but we are a remote-first company, with people living all over the U.S. and Europe.

We’re looking for a (part-time) legal counsel to strengthen our commercial team and help Overstory grow and thrive. You will work closely with sales as well as the leadership team to ensure sound contracting with customers and partners. You will combine your legal knowledge and business mindset to drive results. 

What you'll do

  • Manage, draft, negotiate and document all forms of company contracts, including but not limited to SaaS agreements, NDAs, partner agreements and vendor agreements.
  • Negotiate directly with the legal and procurement teams of our enterprise customers.
  • Be a trusted legal advisor, understanding how to balance risks and provide advice to sales and leadership.
  • Help develop and implement standard templates, improve documentation and processes.

About you

  • You are licensed in the US with approximately 5 years experience negotiating agreements in a (Seed to Series B) startup environment.
  • You have experience with drafting, negotiating and advising on commercial contracts.
  • Technology/software contracts, especially SaaS contracts, are your thing. Ideally you have experience in a machine learning / AI context.
  • You have plenty of experience with IP law.
  • You are business-minded and are able to provide sound legal advice with business and commercial perspectives taken into account.
  • You take ownership, initiative and will have a great deal of autonomy and responsibility in this role.
  • Experience working directly with clients/customers and internal sales teams.
  • You love working in a fast-moving environment.

What you get

  • To be part of truly mission-driven work that reduces wildfires, protects earth’s natural resources and helps solve our climate crisis.
  • Flexible working environment with a lot of autonomy. We build our work days around our lives, not the other way around.
  • Other benefits like a remote working budget, an educational budget and time to develop new skills.
  • To be surrounded by an excellent, vibrant, smart team who have each other's back and believe in a culture of openness, tolerance and respect.
  • Equity and a competitive salary.

About our team

We are a group of 34 people from all over the world. Eleven nationalities are represented in our team. We work remotely from seven different countries and occasionally (optionally!) meet up for in-person collaboration.

Diversity & Inclusion

We place enormous value on diversity and inclusion with regards to gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, education, disability, disciplines and skillsets. We believe that the best ideas emerge when people with different perspectives and approaches work together on a problem.

We’re always looking to diversify our team further, but we’re proud of the fact that four out of the eight people on our leadership team are female or non-white males, 40% of the overall team identifies as female and 25% of the team are people of color. Our team speaks ten languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Luxembourgish, Indonesian and Cantonese.
