Founding Legal Counsel / Legal Engineer

  • Full-time
  • San Francisco, CA

Posted on May 27, 2024

Why Ivo?

Contract negotiation is the most time-consuming, costly, and difficult component of the contract lifecycle, and is barely any easier now than when lawyers were using fax machines.

Large Language Models (LLMs) have unlocked the ability to solve many contract negotiation problems at scale. Our product is best-in-market and is rapidly embedding itself into the lives of its users.

Our clients include companies like Quora, Kaplan, WordPress, SCAN, and more. Importantly, our users love us: Geotab reports 75% efficiency gains, and Formlabs says that “speed in which updates to the product are made is truly remarkable”.

Ivo has raised $6.2M in funding from Uncork Capital, Fika Ventures, Daniel Gross, and more.

What would you be doing?

You will have a unique opportunity to join us as our first Legal Counsel and will have ownership over defining and expanding the role. Your role will be varied with opportunities to specialize into certain areas as the company grows and matures.

  • Work closely with our engineers to improve the outputs of our models

  • Implement (and oversee the implementation of) “Playbooks” for our customers derived from their precedents, templates, and historical agreements. You will need to work closely and directly with our clients

  • Help guide our product roadmap

Ivo might be a good fit for you if:

  • Have BigLaw experience and are ready for a career change

  • Have a "do what it takes" attitude. You're willing to dive into problems and solve them yourself — you won't have anyone to delegate to

  • Would describe yourself as being relentlessly resourceful

  • You have a strong internal sense of urgency. You have a bias towards doing things *today*, rather than tomorrow

  • You are excited about the adventure of building a company!


  • Pay range: $150,000 - $190,000 depending on experience

  • Generous equity

  • Medical coverage is 100% for employees and dependents

This role is in-person in our San Francisco office.
