At Alexsei, we are building cutting-edge legal AI by combining the skills of exceptional research attorneys with those of brilliant AI engineers. We leverage our tools to produce on-demand, short-turnaround legal memos that have garnered the acclaim of top law firms across North America. And, we’re growing!

As a research attorney with Alexsei, you’ll help top lawyers figure out the answers to their most challenging legal questions. Each day will be different, and you’ll get to work in a variety of different practice areas.

We are looking for intellectuals with exceptional legal research, writing, and issue-spotting skills. This is a great opportunity for attorneys more interested in the academic side of law than traditional practice.

Part-time research attorneys are expected to complete an average of five memos per week while full-time research attorneys are expected to complete an average of eight memos per week in addition to making regular contributions to our newsletter and blog. We maintain an excellent work-life balance compared to that of private practice.

We’ve been remote-friendly since day one, so you can complete the work from anywhere.

  • Researching complex legal topics, often in unfamiliar practice areas
  • Crafting 1-2 concise, accurate, and objective legal research memos per day
  • Understanding and adhering to the Alexsei style of writing
  • Working with the research team to ensure that deadlines are consistently being met
  • Helping out with other special projects as needed

Job requirements

  • Attorney licensed to practice law in California
  • Professional experience in any practice area
  • Exceptional legal research, writing, and issue-spotting skills
  • Interest in conducting legal research on a wide range of topics
  • Solid understanding of the legal process
  • Comfortable with ambiguity
  • Love of learning new things
  • Interest in a non-traditional legal career and legal technology
  • Reliable and secure internet access
  • Comfortable using and learning new technologies like Google Hangouts, Zoom, Slack, legal research databases, search engines, etc.
  • Bonus: Open to working a Tuesday through Saturday schedule

Remuneration

  • Part-Time: Annual salary of $50,000 USD
  • Full-Time: Annual salary of $75,000 USD
  • Stock options
  • Four weeks of vacation

Qualified applicants will be asked to complete two memo assignments, for which they will be paid $250 per memo, in order to assess their legal research, writing, and issue-spotting skills.
