Building a team starts with valuing the team. We hire the best of the best to ensure you’re working with people you can constantly learn from. You’re trusted to get your work done your way while testing the limits of what’s possible and what’s next. We work hard to provide a culture where everyone feels supported, and our employees feel it—their votes helped us become one of Newsweek's Top 100 Global Most Loved Workplaces in 2023.

We also value sports. Not just because of the big wins and highlight-worthy plays, but because of the lasting impact sports can have: the lifelong lessons in teamwork and dedication; the influence of inspiring mentors; the priceless opportunities to play at the next level. Sports can change lives—that’s what we value.

Our team helps the world see sports differently through products that make it easier to capture video, analyze data, share highlights and do a lot more.

Your Role

As Senior Director of Legal, you'll report to the Chief Legal Officer and serve as an integral part of our Legal department. Your primary focus will be overseeing the legal operations of our business units, including corporate, commercial, and labor and employement practice areas.

For this role, we have a strong preference for candidates within commuting distance to our Nebraska offices (Lincoln or Omaha). We may consider candidates for relocation. With our flexible work policy, there aren't any requirements for the number of days you come to the office (though we value regular face-to-face connection between our executives and the teams they lead).

As Senior Director, you’ll:

  • Be accountable. You’ll head a team of attorneys and legal professionals within the U.S., and ensure they have the proper frameworks, processes and operating procedures to facilitate the delivery of balanced, efficient and practical legal advice. In short, you’ll support informed and ethical business decisions.
  • Provide legal guidance. Internal clients across multiple departments—including C-suite executives, BU leadership, Sales, Marketing, Product and Support—will rely on your expertise. You will also negotiate and oversee high value and business critical matters, including M&A, financing and litigation.
  • Collaborate. You’ll work with the Sr. Director, Legal for our other business unit to co-lead the Legal team, and work in partnership with the Chief Legal Officer to determine legal priorities for the company.

Must-Haves

  • Law degree. You graduated from an accredited law school and have 10 years of post-qualified experience.
  • A strategic mind. You have a proven ability to provide legal guidance to internal clients, including executive stakeholders on projects like managing commercial transactions, M&A and litigation.
  • People management. You know how to support and develop a team of attorneys and paraprofessionals. You’re well versed in hiring, workforce planning, and fostering a collaborative team culture.
  • Operational excellence. Optimizing workflow and resource allocation is already in your wheelhouse. You’ve also spent time developing and overseeing strategic goals, operating procedures, and budget planning processes.
  • Legal and business acumen. You have a deep understanding of laws and regulations that could impact Hudl, especially in commercial transactions, M&A, IP, data protection, and employment.
  • Global mindset. We work with colleagues and customers from all over the world—an appreciation for cultural diversity is a must.

Nice-to-Haves

  • Relevant industry experience. You’ve lead teams within software/SaaS companies.
  • Blended experience. You’ve worked in both law firm and in-house roles.
  • Public company experience. While Hudl is not public, we might be in the future, and this role would play a part in getting us there. Capital markets, securities law, and/or corporate governance experience is a plus.

Our Role

  • Champion work-life harmony. We’ll give you the flexibility you need in your work life (e.g., flexible vacation time, company-wide holidays and timeout (meeting-free) days, remote work options and more) so you can enjoy your personal life too.
  • Guarantee autonomy. We have an open, honest culture and we trust our people from day one. Your team will support you, but you’ll own your work and have the agency to try new ideas.
  • Encourage career growth. We’re lifelong learners who encourage professional development. We’ll give you tons of resources and opportunities to keep growing.
  • Provide an environment to help you succeed. We've invested in our offices, designing incredible spaces with our employees in mind. But whether you’re at the office or working remotely, we’ll provide you the tech stack and hardware to do your best work.
  • Support your mental and physical health. We care about our employees’ wellbeing. Our Employee Assistance Program, employee resource groups and fitness partner Peerfit have you covered.
  • Cover your medical insurance. We have multiple plans to pick from to ensure you’ll have the coverage you (and your dependents) want, including vision, dental, fertility healthcare and family forming benefits.
  • Contribute to your 401(K). Yep, that’s free money. We’ll match up to 4% of your own contribution.

Inclusion at Hudl

Hudl is an equal opportunity employer. Through our actions, behaviors and attitude, we’ll create an environment where everyone, no matter their differences, feels like they belong.

We offer resources to ensure our employees feel safe bringing their authentic selves to work, including employee resource groups and communities. But we recognize there’s ongoing work to be done, which is why we track our efforts and commitments in annual inclusion reports.

We also know imposter syndrome is real and the confidence gap can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates. Please don’t hesitate to apply—we’d love to hear from you.
