Legal Counsel (International Expansion)

We're Getir, the pioneers of super-fast delivery. We deliver groceries such as sandwiches to shampoo, dog food to beer, in an average of ten minutes. Founded in 2015, we now deliver hundreds of thousands of orders a day from more than 300 locations in the United Kingdom and Turkey. In 2021, we plan to rock the streets and doorsteps of several cities across the world,

spreading the experience and wonder of seamless, super-fast delivery that simply works for everyone. To make super-fast delivery possible, we don't refrain from getting involved in all the aspects that go into it. However, we like to do everything in a startup-savvy way that is driven by technology.

As we expand our operations globally, it's vital that we onboard excellent startup-seeking lawyers to both keep us at check and to help us with expanding operations into new markets.


Key Duties and Responsibilities

The day to day duties and responsibilities include:

  • Work closely with the expansion and legal teams in the new jurisdictions, as well as HQ in Turkey to support broader expansion plans globally.
  • Work closely with external counsel on all regulatory and operational matters.
  • Assist in the on-going development and delivery of legal and compliance policies, procedures, processes, and training materials to support product launch and operations.
  • Work closely with commercial, strategy and operational teams and provide commercial minded legal support.
  • Research intensively on local legislation and regulatory frameworks.
  • Being a great overall teammate to everyone in a small startup environment.


The candidate must meet the following essential requirements:

  • 5 years of work experience as a lawyer.
  • Significant experience and a proven ability in roles requiring excellent analytical skills, legal writing and outstanding research ability.
  • Proven track record of delivering consistently on complex projects under challenging circumstances with a sense of urgency, but with the ability to also keep broader strategic objectives in focus.
  • Master's and/or post graduate degree with outstanding academic record in a related discipline.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with significant experience and proven success in roles requiring ability to interface at all levels, building strong relationships internally and externally.
  • Be a good person. Beyond just doing what's the legal minimum, ask yourself if something is ethical or not. Voice your opinion wherever necessary.
