At Axis, our people are crucial to our success - without them, we wouldn't be the global leader in network video surveillance.

Our common goal is to support Axis' sustainable and successful growth through tailor-made, smart legal advice.

Besides having an important purpose as a Legal Counsel specialized in data protection and IT law, you will also work with the greatest inhouse Legal Team there is.

* Be an active part of the Legal Team's digitalization process
* Create and communicate internal awareness education
* Independently negotiate and revise IT-contracts

Who are we looking for?
We believe you are a highly skilled, driven, analytical, structured, efficient and business oriented Legal Counsel that love working with people as well as data protection questions, commercial contracts, processes and systems.

As a person you are a self-starter who is motivated by working in a high-pace international organization where you can deliver results together with your colleagues and when you can give high-class service to our stakeholders. We value that you have integrity and respect for others and that you enjoy being a team-player.

* A law degree (LL.M) from a Swedish University or equivalent
* 3-5 years' experience of a similar position as an associate at a law firm or inhouse
* Excellent knowledge of data protection legislation (GDPR) and experience of IT law and commercial contracts
* Good knowledge of the IT-/tech business sector
