eBrevia is seeking a transactional attorney to play a major role in the continued enhancement and development of the company’s legal software. eBrevia’s artificial intelligence software learns by example in the form of reviewing highlighted language in a wide variety of contract types. Using machine learning technology, it then recognizes legal concepts and other data points in contracts it has never seen before. By managing the review and annotation of legal provisions from a database of contracts, the successful candidate will be teaching eBrevia’s AI technology to "think like a lawyer”. This is a leadership role within the organization which requires the coordination and management of internal and external annotation resources. The position is ideal for a transactional lawyer, who is an entrepreneur at heart, and excited about technology and innovation.
Manage internal and external resources including attorneys and other professionals to gather contracts, build eBrevia’s working database, and accurately annotate contracts within project deadlines.
Work closely with other team leaders to help strategically define additional legal domains in which to train the software.
Prepare substantive legal guidelines in conjunction with domain experts for annotators to follow in training the software.
Work with eBrevia’s machine learning engineers to review the software’s output when training new provisions and discuss and implement annotation processes to improve accuracy.
Determine skills sets and domain expertise required to meet strategic objectives in training the software and take the lead on hiring or leveraging outside resources as needed.
Map out projects in detail and supervise annotators to ensure progress is made and milestones are hit within required timeframes.
Candidate must have a JD or LLM and 3+ years of experience reviewing a variety of contracts, including general commercial contracts, leases, loan agreements, license agreements and M&A-related agreements.
Experience with investment management agreements, ISDA and/or IP-related agreements a plus.
Project management experience (can be in the context of managing deal work) including defining objectives, assigning tasks, supervising and quality control.
The successful candidate should have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as well as the ability to work independently and make progress.
The successful candidate should also be initiative-taking, organized, technically savvy, detail oriented, resourceful, resilient, "street” smart and "book” smart, and most importantly, have a desire to grow.
