TechFreedom, the premier market-oriented technology policy think tank, seeks an experienced Internet lawyer to study, document and combat a populist frenzy sweeping across the political spectrum, channeling broad outrage about the tech sector, and demanding fundamental changes to the legal framework governing consumer protection, privacy, intermediary liability, content moderation, and political speech online. This person will work closely with a second lawyer we are hiring to focus on competition policy. Together, these two scholars will study, document and combat the so-called “Techlash.” They will join our existing team of Internet lawyers.

We prefer candidates based in Washington, D.C., but will consider exceptional candidates based elsewhere — especially the San Francisco Bay area and Brussels. Remote candidates must be open to regular travel to D.C., and generally greater flexibility in travel and salary. Regular trips to D.C. would be required and at least two days per month in the D.C. area expected.
