About

SpeedLegal is a San Francisco based LegalTech startup. We use Artificial Intelligence to devise innovative solutions for individuals and Enterprise Organizations.

SpeedLegal is seeking a highly-motivated Business Dev Intern that lives our company values. 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. This is a part-time remote position.

At SpeedLegal, we believe in a future where users will be able to understand contracts in minutes. Our platform uses a set of machine learning tools to extract useful data from bulk-uploaded contracts. Our users spend less time on line-by-line review, and more time focusing on high-value tasks such as building trust and deep relationships with their customers.

Grow potential within the company e.g. Stock options.
