Are you passionate about intellectual property rights? Do you love video games? Do you want to combine that passion and love with some hard work for an award-winning games publisher known for brands such as Cities: Skylines, Crusader Kings, Stellaris, and Prison Architect? Then my friend, look no further.

About the role:

As a member of the Legal Eagles of Paradox, you'd have special responsibility for an exciting catalogue of intellectual property rights. That includes deciding on what can be included in a video game and what can't, managing our trademarks, defending our rights and educating colleagues in the world of IPR. But we're a small team in a big world so you'd have to be versatile and prepared to take on all sorts of tasks within many legal disciplines. The position is a parental leave cover contract ideally starting in September.

So, please let us know if you:

  • have a law degree
  • are a problem solver
  • are generally awesome
  • are a great communicator
  • like to take on big responsibilities
  • have a few years of experience, mostly with intellectual property rights

You'll have a lot of different contact areas throughout Paradox as well as with external parties, so you need to be able to collaborate with anyone. Making and selling video games is truly a massive team effort, and team efforts are mostly done together, in this case at the HQ on Södermalm, although we're somewhat flexible in that regard. However, you'd also need to be able to work independently, taking a big problem all the way to a neat solution on your own.
