Who We Are: 

At Calm, we have a simple, albeit BIG mission: to make the world a happier and healthier place. Through our website, blog, and app—filled with meditations, sleep stories, music, movement, and more—we’re redefining what mental care looks like in 2021 and beyond. With over 100 million users worldwide, 100,000 new users daily, and our growing partnerships with major companies, we’re having a positive effect on more and more people each and every day. And while the heart of Calm is digital, we are growing and expanding offline with a variety of products and services to help deliver on our mission of health and happiness, the world over. 

What We Do:

Calm is growing its content library and gaining more exposure every day. Because of this new growth, the number of contracts is climbing, and the nature of our branded relationships is becoming more complex. Copyright, trademark, and rights of publicity are underlying parts of these contracts, as well as relationships that require Calm content to be distributed on other platforms. Experience with these legal issues is crucial for candidates looking to help grow the legal team into the future. 

What You’ll Do:

We are looking for a Production Counsel to handle business and legal affairs in connection with Calm's original content.  The role negotiates, drafts and reviews various agreements required to develop, produce and distribute our slate of original programming (e.g., talent and writer deals, IP licenses, master services agreements, etc.).  You will partner with key stakeholders in the content, marketing, music, and other cross-functional teams to provide timely and thoughtful counsel and practical problem solving.  You will also handle day-to-day matters that may arise, including clearing creative material, obtaining necessary rights and releases, and identifying risks associated with the business.  

Who You Are:

  • 3+ years of experience as an attorney at a top law firm or a media, content, or live entertainment company
  • Strong working knowledge of the content production process, whether in scripted, unscripted or live events
  • Solid understanding of IP and right of publicity issues
  • Excellent drafting, negotiating, and organizational skills
  • Ability to problem solve and communicate in a "non-legal" but concise and accurate manner
  • Ability to build interdepartmental relationships at all levels
  • Team player willing to tackle a variety of tasks at a rapidly growing company

Nice-to-Haves: 

  • Knowledge of and experience with unions such as SAG/AFTRA

We believe that mental health is health, and every person should be considered in the discussion. That’s why we’re proud to be an equal opportunity workplace, committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, marital status, ancestry, physical or mental disability, genetic information, veteran status, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state or local law.

Calm is deeply committed to diversity, equity and inclusion, both in our hiring practices and in our experiences as a Calm employee. We strive to create a mindful and respectful environment where everyone can bring their authentic self to work, and experience a culture that is free of harassment, racism, and discrimination. 

Calm is also committed to providing reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities and disabled veterans in our job application procedures. Please inform Calm’s Recruiting team if you need any assistance completing any forms or to otherwise participate in the application process.

An Insider's view of Calm

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We’re a hard-working, collaborative team with ambitious goals, but Calm understands the importance of individual well-being and how that impacts how we show up at work. Calm fosters a supportive, remote-first culture that enables us to meet both our professional goals and personal interests.

What does your typical day look like?

As a working mom of 2, I’m grateful to work for a remote first company that gives me the opportunity to balance being a mom and also a career. My day starts with the Daily Calm so I can be completely present and effective. My favorite part of my job is connecting with a diverse array of talent who all have unique experiences that add value to Calm.

Ali

Recruiting Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

The most important thing I’ve learned at Calm is how to evaluate and scope a project so that it regularly delivers value for our company and stakeholders. As an engineer, it helps us prioritize when there’s a lot to do, effectively weight tradeoffs and evaluate requirements so i can see my contributions and feel proud of them.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

By making our team a safe space for creative ideas!
Within engineering, I help drive and facilitate projects that make our team happier and more productive! For example: making our interview process more junior friendly, improving our remote onboarding, and addressing tech debt etc.
