Legal intern

Oh hello there Legal Intern! 


Every day, millions of people rely on WeTransfer to share their creative ideas. So, the work we do matters. Come and be a part of it.

Hello, keep on reading... 

You may know us as the transfer guys, but did you know there’s about a hundred people working behind the scenes to make this so simple tool come to life? No? Did you know that we’re a Dutch company, with offices overlooking the Ij and Venice beach (if you don’t know it, Google is your friend) and that we have about 20 nationalities working here? Well, it’s about time! 

We need a legal intern, as of September. You’ll be joining the HR/Legal team (best team evah!) and assisting our Head of HR and Legal. During this internship you’ll get your own tasks and responsibilities and you will be given the chance to develop yourself. You will be asked to help with reviewing all kinds of commercial contracts, dive into knowhow from Dutch employment law to IP rights, and help developing legal templates. There's lots to do and we need you!

What’s in it for you?

Here’s the serious bit: you get to find out which aspects of law you are attracted to the most, and get some work experience. You’ll discover how varied the work of a legal counsel can be, as you’ll be supporting various teams within the company. But seriously, you get to work at a company that starts Friday drinks at 4PM, organises boxing classes to teach you about assertiveness and gives you ice creams when it’s hot.

Who are we looking for?

Are you in your third or last year of Dutch law at the University and do you have an eye for details (that means you know how to spell our company name right)? Are you forward thinking and like to take initiative but ask for help when needed? Great! You’re a smart cookie who loves to get your hands dirty. We love positivity, structure and flexibility. You can write a contract in English, make jokes in Dutch and express a variety of emotions in “gif”.

The practical details

  • 📅 As of September 2018

A little something about us

Since 2009 WeTransfer has been helping people share their creative ideas. We believe creative thinking changes the way we see the world, and so we develop tools to get people into their flow – that strange and beautiful state where everything comes together and the best work happens.

Today, 42 million people in 195 countries share ideas using WeTransfer. We are constantly developing new products, as well as rethinking what our current platforms can be, and can do.

Our founders originally worked in design, media and marketing; today we’re lucky to be working with the most creative minds in branding, sales, design, support and engineering.

We believe a diverse company is a better company. Whatever your story, we want to hear from you. Whatever your background, we’ll help you do your best work. 

Our Amsterdam office sits right by the river in the east of the city; our LA team are based in Venice. With lunch, snacks and great coffee, we know how to keep our teams properly fuelled. Our culture team designs a program of outings, speakers, workshops and fitness classes to get a good work-life balance.
