Job description

At UpCloud, you’ll be literally building the cloud.

Are you a motivated law student eager to learn how legal issues are solved in a fast-paced tech scale-up? Do you have a genuine interest in privacy and data protection, technology, and corporate governance? Are you ready to gain hands-on experience in an innovative and dynamic environment?

We are looking for a part-time Legal Trainee to work alongside our General Counsel. You will be assisting in a variety of legal tasks and get to collaborate with our cross-functional Go-to-Market and Technical teams!

Your focus areas will include:

  • Privacy and Data Protection
    • You'll assist with the day-to-day privacy and data protection work, including Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs), and help to maintain our Record of Processing Activities (ROPA) up-to-date.

    • You'll also have the opportunity to contribute to drafting and updating privacy notices and internal guidelines.

  • Contract Management
    • You'll utilise our contract management platform to manage and archive contracts, contract templates, and other official documents.

    • You will assist with reviewing and drafting commercial contracts.

  • Compliance & Advice
    • You’ll conduct legal research on relevant legislation and contribute to various compliance projects.

  • Corporate Governance
    • You’ll assist in general corporate housekeeping duties, such as drafting corporate resolutions, filings with authorities, and corporate record keeping.

What we’re looking for:

  • You’re a law student with at least 120 study credits.

  • You have completed studies in some or all of the following: privacy and data protection, contract law, employment law, and corporate law.

  • Demonstrated work experience is advantageous, but genuine interest and willingness to learn are equally valued.

  • You have a proactive approach and are not afraid to assume new responsibilities as you gain experience.

  • You are organised and have good time management skills to balance between your role and studies.

  • You are comfortable communicating and drafting documents in English (as an international company, English is our internal language). Fluency in Finnish is an advantage.

What do we offer:

  • We will tailor your exact duties to match your skills and experience. You will have a chance to grow into your role and assume responsibilities in accordance with your appetite.

  • Flexible work schedule to accommodate your studies - we understand that studies are your priority.

  • We offer a permanent, part-time position. We expect you to work on average 2–3 days a week.

If you are passionate about law, technology, and innovation, and eager to learn and grow in a dynamic legal environment, we encourage you to apply for this exciting opportunity.
