Robin AI is an exciting, venture-backed technology startup whose mission is to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of legal advice. Backed by top London based VCs, Forward Partners and Episode 1, Robin uses a combination of human and artificial intelligence to review and edit contracts and is building software to fundamentally change the legal industry forever.

Robin was established in March 2019 by CEO Richard Robinson (a former City lawyer) and CTO James Clough (a theoretical physicist who works in Machine Learning). They have since assembled a talented and diverse team of legal, software and machine learning engineers to build the next generation of contracting tools.

At Robin AI, we are creating groundbreaking products that are transforming legal teams. Our work is multi-disciplinary and brings together the best talent in engineering, product, AI, the law and commercial delivery. Our current product uses neural networks to read and comprehend written contracts, assesses whether they adhere to our customers’ preferred positions, and then automatically amends them. But our goals go way beyond reviewing contracts – we want to build technology that changes the way companies all over the world do deals.

To do that, we need to build a world class commercial operation. As the first finance hire, you will be instrumental in enabling the business to scale. You will also contribute significantly to the design and positioning of our service offering, including pricing, market assessment and target customer definition.
