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 Legal Intern for a legal AI product.
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.
SpeedLegal is seeking a highly-motivated Legal 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.
