Our mission: to eliminate every barrier to mental health.

Spring Health is a comprehensive mental health solution for employers and health plans. Unlike any other solution, we use clinically validated technology called Precision Mental Healthcare to pinpoint and deliver exactly what will work for each person — whether that’s meditation, coaching, therapy, medication, and beyond.

Today, Spring Health equips over 800 companies, from start-ups to multinational Fortune 500 corporations, as a leading and preferred mental health service. Companies like J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Microsoft, J.B. Hunt, Bumble, and Instacart use the Spring Health platform to provide mental health services to thousands of their team members globally. We have raised over $370 million from prominent investors including Kinnevik, Tiger Global, Northzone, RRE Ventures, and many more. Thanks to their partnership, our current valuation has reached $2.5 billion.

The Product Counsel will play a crucial role in navigating the complex legal landscape of health technology. Your expertise in intellectual property (IP), data privacy, artificial intelligence (AI), marketing, and compliance, will be instrumental in guiding our product development and market strategies. You will work closely with large, multi-stakeholder teams including our product, engineering, and business teams to ensure our products comply with applicable laws and regulations while also supporting business objectives and innovation.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Advise multi-stakeholders on legal considerations during the product development lifecycle process to ensure compliance with existing laws and regulations, including data privacy laws, intellectual property rights, laws related to AI development and deployment, consumer protection laws, and international legal requirements.
  • Identify and manage the IP aspects of products, including patents, trade secrets, copyrights, and trademarks.
  • Work with the data privacy and security teams to flag and advise on issues related to data privacy and security, ensuring the product complies with applicable data privacy laws including HIPAA, GDPR, and CCPA.
  • Ensure the product and its marketing comply with consumer protection laws, avoiding deceptive trade practices, and ensuring fair competition.
  • Collaborate with the compliance, regulatory, and risk management teams to identify any additional potential compliance and regulatory risks associated with the product and work with the necessary teams to mitigate these risks.
  • Maintain understanding of new and evolving laws impacting the business.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.

What success looks like in this role:

  • Manage Product by Design within the product life cycle
  • Conduct legal training sessions for product teams and measure feedback
  • Manage the IP portfolio and track timelines
  • Draft Product Counsel Templates and document product meetings, legal advice given, and ultimate decisions made

What we expect from you:

  • Juris Doctorate (JD) degree from an accredited law school and an active member of at least one state bar
  • 5+ years experience in a product counsel role with a tech company or technology driven environment
  • Familiarity and experience with data privacy laws and frameworks related to health data or other sensitive data (e.g., HIPAA, CCPA, GDPR, etc.)
  • Experience advising on AI and Machine Learning
  • Proven experience working cross-functionally with various teams and stakeholders
  • Excellent problem-solving skills, legal drafting, and negotiation skills
  • Ability to work comfortably in a fast-paced, high-volume work environment
  • Ability to manage numerous projects simultaneously under deadline pressure
  • Strong team player who can collaborate effectively with both legal and non-legal colleagues

The target base salary range for this position is $184,000 - $230,000, and is part of a competitive total rewards package including stock options and benefits. Individual pay may vary from the target range and is determined by a number of factors including experience, location, internal pay equity, and other relevant business considerations. We review all employee pay and compensation programs annually at minimum to ensure competitive and fair pay.

Don’t meet every requirement?

At Spring Health we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we strongly encourage you to apply. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles!
