We are rethinking how people and companies interact with contracts. We are serial entrepreneurs backed by Berkeley SkyDeck, Plug & Play VC, Rockstart and LexLab at UC Hastings.

We are a Machine Learning startup based in California and we are looking for a motivated Account Executive for a legal AI product.

About us

Have you ever signed a contract but not really understood what it said? Us too.

Contracts are the foundation of all commerce, but they're basically impossible to understand. They're dense and filled with jargon. Oftentimes, they're literally written in Latin.

SpeedLegal SaaS platform helps busy professionals e.g. salespeople and buyers close deals 3X faster (200% revenue accelerator) and save ~$60k-140k in legal fees when reviewing contracts.

About you

SpeedLegal is seeking a highly-motivated, over-achieving hunter who flourishes in a fast-paced, dynamic and international environment. At this time, there are basically no inbounds, the main focus is prospecting and resilience in contributing to finding PM fit with the CEO.

At SpeedLegal, we believe in diving deep to understand the truth, taking risks, and questioning common assumptions. We have a strong bias for action and believe that action beats inaction. We value all team members as contributors from the first day of the internship (aka Day One). We work together to maintain and evolve a responsive company culture that values innovation, creativity, and integrity.

The Account Executive needs to drive sales opportunities from identification to close and have the experience and the confidence to manage relations and negotiations autonomously and in line with the strategic and business priorities as well as the commercial approach of the company. We will need her/him to be hands-on as well by building a book of opportunities and business while simultaneously meeting prospects and closing business.

In this role you will partner with enterprise organizations to solve one of their biggest challenges: close deals faster. You will work closely with them to show them how our platform can save thousands when reviewing contracts and uncovering hidden obligations. Your ability to understand and focus on their problems and speak to that will be critical to build a consultative relationship with your customers and work on solutions that show clear ROIs from day one.

  • Create and deliver accurate sales forecasts.


  • A minimum 2-3 years of on-quota, B2B SaaS applications sales experience with a minimum deal size of $5k-30k ARR for now possibly expanding to hundreds of thousands in 1-2 years.
  • Proven track record of strategic outreach and sourcing new business accounting for 80+% of your quota attainment.
  • Previous experience of selling business solutions to the e-learning industry is preferred but not mandatory. 
  • Skilled at negotiating business terms with the IT organization of enterprise organizations and with senior management executives
  • History of consistent quota over-achievement in highly competitive markets
  • Ability to work in a rapidly expanding and changing environment
  • International experience is a great plus, we highly value if you have lived and worked in more than one country for a substantial period of time (at least 2 years)
  • Teamwork and good verbal and written communication skills a must
  • Excellent presentation skills and the ability to effectively articulate our solution’s value proposition as part of an overall business solution.

  • Good skills with the most important CRM tools.
  • Advanced user of Linkedin and professional social networks such as Twitter.
  • Hands-on attitude, ambitious and passionate.
