Job Description

Genie AI is a deep learning based software company with a mission to open source the law.

We are disrupting the legal industry by changing the business model ground up.

What Github did with open source code, Instagram and TikTok with entertainment, Airbnb with hospitality, and Uber with travel, Genie is doing with Legal contracts.

We are building a community-based AI law platform.

We have fully flexible working, meaning you can work remotely or in pre-paid co-working spaces of your choice. Apply now as applications close shortly.

About Genie AI

  • Welcome! We’re a machine learning startup with a mission to enable everyone to draft quality legal documents – focused initially on midmarket businesses
  • 70,000 companies use Genie AI today – we’ve been growing exponentially for 12 months straight!
  • We’re funded by the world’s top investors, with significant runway – and we’re growing the team
  • We’ve collaborated with Oxford University and Imperial College London to co-author research papers on explainable AI
  • According to Forbes, we’re also rated one of the top 29 AI startups in the UK
  • We’re a Sunday Times Best Places to Work Award Winner 2024 
  • We’re backed by top legal pedigree, from Lord Neuberger to representing the UK on multiple Ministry of Justice trade missions
  • Our customers save on average £15,000 on legal fees per year with Genie
  • Instead of paying a law firm, they can use our open sourced legal templates or create their own from scratch using our AI assistant
  • Users can also ask our AI assistant any question, or get a red flag review in minutes, where it would have taken hours and cost thousands with a law firm
  • These contain guidance from top lawyers, and intelligent insights as you draft
  • This isn’t just a SaaS product – we’re redefining the business model of law
  • If you’re excited to disrupt a £750bn industry and make history with us – apply below!

About the role

We’re looking for an analytical Senior ML Research Scientist with a passion for making positive change and an interest in applying machine learning to law to form part of our Applied AI team:

  • You will work on industry-changing problems such as legal contract generation and review, essentially replicating the work of an experienced lawyer using machine learning
  • You will be working towards prototyping, testing and researching new algorithms, applying research to enhance our products
  • You will primarily work in NLP, especially with cutting-edge Large Language Models – though potentially even in multi-modal learning
  • You will advance transformer models and generative ML by utilising libraries like Hugging Face, and by implementing efficiency techniques such as quantization
  • You will work with Legal Engineers to incorporate domain knowledge in your models, and develop methods to accurately evaluate the output of generative legal models
  • You will have access to massive scale proprietary legal datasets, as well as plenty of compute power, and the ability to publish academic papers if interested (we have previously published with Oxford University in EMNLP)
  • You will have access to a team of software engineers to help productionize your models, enabling you to focus on machine learning. You will work closely with ML Engineers

About you

  • You aim to be the best in your field & don’t compromise on quality
  • You are keen to work independently, as well as collaborate with a small, diverse team within an agile environment
  • You are creatively curious, possess an innate inquisitiveness and a mathematical background
  • You have experience with NLP (natural language processing) and Machine Learning (fundamentals and Deep Learning) from a commercial background
  • You have a deep interest in Large Language Models (LLMs)
  • You possess know-how in Machine Learning frameworks such as TensorFlow or PyTorch, and have strong knowledge of standard NLP libraries such as SpaCy and NLTK, and transformer libraries such as Hugging Face
  • You possess architectural knowledge of deep neural nets, for example the self-attention mechanism of transformers, and ability to read and understand machine learning papers
  • You are fluent in Python

Interview process

  • You will initially meet our Talent Acquisition Manager, Charlette followed by a Technical chat with our Lead ML Research Scientist, Alex. Thereafter you will complete a take-home task and a Live Technical challenge with our Snr Machine Learning Research Scientist Alex and our CTO & Co-Founder Nitish. We will finish off with a Culture Interview with our Growth Marketing Lead Alex D & our Lead Product Manager, Snezh
  • We look forward to meeting you & having fun throughout the interview process; please turn up as your authentic self & ask us about our Culture, Company events & Big Mission! We can’t wait to meet you!
