Fluence is seeking candidates for the role of Senior Legal Counsel, based out of Taipei, Taiwan. 

Fluence, a Siemens and AES company, is the global market leader in energy storage technology solutions and services.  Providing design, delivery and integration, Fluence offers proven energy storage technology solutions that address the diverse needs and challenges of customers in a rapidly transforming energy landscape.  Our mission: transform the way we power our world, to create a more sustainable future. 

The Senior Legal Counsel will have an in-depth role in overseeing the legal matters of Fluence APAC, with a focus on Southeast and East Asia. This includes legal aspects of the delivery of energy storage systems to our customers, managing the contractual relationships with our supply chain, all sorts of corporate issues within the APAC Region, and also may include labor law and regulatory compliance.  

The role will be part of Fluence’s APAC Legal Department. This position offers an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the effective, accurate and profitable operations of a global organization with the mission to change the way we power our world. 

We’ll tell you more about Fluence below, but first let’s talk about you. 

YOU 

·       You are responsible, agile, leading and fun. (Hint: these are Fluence’s core values, and we mean it. Seriously.) 

·       You have a solid legal background with a minimum of 7 years of experience in drafting, interpreting, and negotiating contracts, especially supply and services contracts, as an associate in a reputable firm or an in-house counsel for an established corporation.  

·       You have experience in industrial equipment, construction or utility project, renewable energy or energy storage sector.     

·       You know quite a bit about Taiwanese renewable energy sector and Taiwanese energy regulations. 

·       You have a great grasp of  labor and employment law, compliance and corporate housekeeping.     

·       You are interested in IT, Legal Tech, and improving the processes of a legal department.  

·       You read legalese fluently, but you never, ever speak legalese.  You enjoy boring your family and friends with your vast knowledge of legal matters that come up in the life of an international group of companies. 

·       You are fluent in Mandarin (both verbal and written) and you have strong English oral and written skills. Contracting in Mandarin or in English hold no secrets for you. 

·       You probably began your career by laboring happily in a swanky law firm or have been exposed to the joy of an in-house legal department.   

·       You have excellent judgment, both in business and interpersonal matters, except you like lawyers.   

·       You have good working knowledge of applicable local standards, codes and regulations 

·       You have great initiative, impeccable ethics and a commitment to compliance and safety. (We don’t make jokes about compliance or safety.) 

·       You exude strong interpersonal skills, flexibility and a highly self-motivated work style.  

FLUENCE AND YOUR NEW JOB 

 

Fluence’s core values are: Responsible, Agile, Leading and Fun.  What on earth does that mean for you? 

 

Responsible: 

Fluence is defined by our unwavering commitment to safety, quality, and integrity.  We take personal ownership in what we do, developing trust in our relationships with internal and external stakeholders.  We firmly believe in having honest, forthcoming, and fair communications. 

·       This role will support mainly APAC Legal’s Sub-Region for Taiwan and Southeast Asia, but supporting the entire APAC Region in specific functional areas.  The APAC Legal team does not sit in a legal ivory tower – you are expected to be a part of the team and add value in close interactions with your peers. 

·       In other words, you will be a lawyer in a broad and customer-facing role, and all of us are responsible for great customer service. 

Agile:   

Here at Fluence, we strive to continuously improve, to be intellectually curious and be adaptive to our customers’ and employees’ needs.  Collaboration is key, both in our partnerships with our customers, and with each other.  Fluence prioritizes the most critical efforts that allow for the greatest impact.   

·       Since this role supports the whole APAC region, the subject matter, technical details and personalities will be numerous and varied. 

·       Job location is flexible.  (What? Really? Yes!) While we have an office in Taipei, our projects and offices are located around the APAC region so occasional business travel should be expected.   

·       Most Fluence people wear multiple hats.  On any given day you might provideoverflow legal support on any topic, from contracting to employment law, real estate, or simply corporate housekeeping.  Nobody at Fluence says “that’s not my job!”  

Leading:   

Fluence works closely with customers as their trusted advisor throughout their journey and provides advisory, financing, and project lifecycle services. 

·       You aren’t expected to arrive at Fluence being an expert in energy storage.  You’ll climb the learning curve quickly.  

·       Our customers value us for our expertise, and this role will be on the front lines, interacting with customers frequently.  Soon you’ll know more about energy storage than most other lawyers in the world. 

Fun:   

We are always looking for employees who are excited by challenges and the opportunity to be problem-solvers.  Our entrepreneurial mindset allows for creativity, sense of urgency and fulfillment.  Our employees love what we do and are passionate about the way we power our world.   

·       Granted, this is an intangible – how do you measure fun?  Suffice it to say, we work very hardto maintain a vibrant company culture.  We value diversity, inclusiveness and respect.  Even toward our lawyers!  People at Fluence don’t take themselves too seriously – we take our products and our customers seriously.  (And ethics,safety and compliance.) 

·       As some of us like to say, “Winning is fun!”.  At Fluence, you’llbe doing a lot of winning and we don’t settle for anything less.
