Careers

At ZwillGen we like the work we do and we like each other. We are looking for people who feel the same way and who will both enjoy and contribute to our friendly and lively atmosphere.

ZwillGen Careers

We work collaboratively as a team and everyone pitches in on firm-related tasks, both big and small. We like self-starters who have a good sense of humor and can make (and take) a joke. We also like to keep things casual. At ZwillGen, jeans and a t-shirt is the norm and a suit and tie is likely to turn heads. In addition to our casual dress policy, we also enjoy a well-stocked kitchen, spontaneous happy hours, in-house massages, firm fantasy sports leagues, and other fun firm events and celebrations.

Current Openings

  • Privacy and eCommerce Law Attorney

    We are seeking an attorney with at least 4 years of privacy and digital media experience.

    Washington, DC, New York, or San Francisco

    We are a boutique internet and technology law firm based in Washington, D.C., with a wealth of high-tech clients ranging from early-stage start-ups to household names in the tech industry. We are seeking an attorney with at least 4 years of privacy and digital media experience to join our team. 

    The position requires a highly motivated, forward-thinking individual with the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team in a fast-paced legal environment. Although we achieve national accolades (e.g., Law360’s recent Practice Groups of the Year for Privacy and Consumer Protection), we’re not BigLaw: we want attorneys who share our creative and efficient team-oriented approach to clients’ needs, and who can serve as a valued strategic counselor — not simply bill hours. In-house experience is valued; part-time schedules may be accommodated for the right candidate; more experienced attorneys are valued and welcome. 

     

    Essential Job Functions

    The ideal candidate will have worked closely with clients in one or more (not necessarily all) of the following areas:

    • Counseling companies regarding federal and state privacy statutes (CCPA, COPPA, CalOPPA, FTC Act, FCRA, CAN-SPAM, TCPA, ECPA, etc.).
    • Counseling clients regarding data security protocols, data breach response, and/or internal data and privacy governance policies. 
    • Drafting and revising online privacy policies and terms of use.
    • Counseling clients regarding payment issues, such as money transmitter laws and Bank Secrecy Act, payment card rules and negotiations, gift card, escheat and stored value laws.
    • Counseling client on international data privacy laws, particularly regarding GDPR compliance.

     

    This position is available in any of our three offices: Washington, D.C., New York, NY, and San Francisco, CA.

    Candidates should write and communicate well, be able to think strategically and assess risks, and be comfortable working under tight deadlines that start-up clients sometimes impose.  Salary commensurate with experience, plus benefits.

    Bonus Points

    Good sense of humor and strong knowledge of pop culture.
