Tendium is a tech company working in the space between technology and customers. Through advanced machine-learning technologies, we are revolutionising industries with modern, efficient methods, creating new possibilities to democratise both the public and the private sector markets. The team at Tendium is expanding, with everyone from data scientists to salespeople working side by side, and now we want you to join us.
We are an ever-growing company comprised of highly ambitious and bright individuals. With such talent, we at Tendium naturally believe in a flat hierarchy, where everyone has responsibility, autonomy and the opportunity to provide input. Since we are increasing in size significantly, new opportunities are emerging constantly. We require ambitious, conscientious and value-driven new colleagues to help grow the business. If you are successful in becoming a part of our team, we promise to provide a dynamic, intellectually stimulating workplace. We believe that personal and professional development is crucial and as such you will have the opportunity to take on real responsibility from day one.
As a full-time Legal Counsel, you will be part of Tendium’s dynamic Legal Team, currently consisting of two Legal Counsels. Even though the Legal Team is one of the smallest teams in the company, the Legal Team has a significant impact on the Tendium organisation and is essential in Tendium's growth and development. The team practices an open and collaborative atmosphere, always eager to assist and learn from one another.
The Legal Team is responsible for ensuring Tendium's compliance with applicable laws in relevant business areas and minimising any legal risks. The team provides support to all parts of the organisation by, for example, analysing, negotiating, and drafting contracts, conducting legal investigations, assisting various teams with legal inquiries, creating internal policies, and addressing the legal aspects of Tendium's services. The team’s work encompasses diverse areas including public access to information, artificial intelligence, technology, public procurement, intellectual property, labour law, corporate law, and more. As Tendium grows, more and more focus is placed on data protection, which will be one of the focus areas of this position, including developing and maintaining internal and external processes to meet the requirements of the GDPR, drafting GDPR policies, and staying current with relevant data legislation.
Given Tendium's evolving business model, the Legal Team often tackles unprecedented legal inquiries, and you will be entrusted with diverse tasks and responsibilities that revolve around the needs of the Tendium organisation. Your expertise and guidance in these areas will be instrumental in upholding the legal integrity of our company as we navigate the complex and ever-evolving legal landscape. This role offers an exhilarating opportunity to engage with a wide spectrum of legal challenges within a corporate environment – you can expect significant room for professional growth and development.

Strong ability to take responsibility for tasks and deliverables, including the motivation and determination to lead projects, while maintaining an eye for detail;
