  • Exciting work: We do much more than automating the mundane part of legal.

We advise the entrepreneurs and decision makers directly – your advice has an immediate impact on your clients.

  • Team spirit and open structures: A team is much stronger than the sum of its individuals. We foster comradery with regular team events and trips to startup hubs (Lisbon last year, Tel Aviv this year). Also, expect your voice to be heard from day one and flat hierarchies.

  • Competitive pay: We have a highly meritocratic remuneration system and performance is highly rewarded, both in cash and equity.

What you will get from LEXR

  • Advisor to tech entrepreneurs: Our pricing and business model allow a much closer interaction and collaboration with our clients. You will act as a trusted advisor to entrepreneurs and decision makers, not only in legal matters but also in general business strategy.

  • Experience & growth mindset: Ideally, you have already worked for a number of years as a business lawyer or in-house counsel. However, the key trait we are looking for is a growth mindset - someone who has a sense of curiosity, the desire to challenge the status quo and try new things.

  • Team spirit: You will be working side by side with clients and team members alike. You are humble, positive, open, and enjoy getting to know what makes people tick.

  • IT affinity: We are 99% digital and constantly test out new tools to improve our work environment and client experience. Proficiency in MS Office is a must, any additional IT skills are a plus. •Self-determination: We often work remotely in virtual teams. The freedom to structure your workday requires intrinsic motivation, drive, and the ability to self-manage your time and tasks.

  • Business sense: We are advising businesses and, in order to provide actionable and valuable legal advice to businesses, you need to have at least a basic understanding of business.
