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 and the law. 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 ambitions 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. Specifically, we want to build a new, structured way for businesses to make and agree contracts by replacing the outdated Microsoft Word default with a browser-based, visual contract building application that will empower anyone – with or without legal training - to create a world class contract.

The Role

We're looking for someone to join the team to support the founders of the business - in particular our CTO James Clough - to help run the technical side of the business. This person should be excited to get stuck-in in a fast growing technology startup and bring a combination of enthusiasm, technical awareness and operational effectiveness.

Tech Stack


  • The role involves working directly with the CTO and rest of the leadership team to help them run the business.
  • This means taking responsibility for a changing and varied set of work including managing our technical hiring pipeline and onboarding for new starters, product management responsibilities, gathering and analysing data from customers and helping interview them, as well as other ad hoc projects.

Your Skills

The right candidate will be a fast learner, willing to take on responsibility and drive projects forward with limited direction, and motivated by making a visible impact on the company.

Although no specific technical experience is required the role is best suited to candidates with some background in software engineering, machine learning or similar, who are capable of engaging in technical discussions with Robin's engineering and product teams.

The nature of the role means that the right candidate will be comfortable switching between different tasks and responsibilities, and will need to be a fast learner with real enthusiasm to work in a fast-growing startup.

Our offices are at WeWork in Bank, where you will have a dedicated desk in our private office space, which you are free to personalize as you wish. We also have access to all of the amenities within WeWork including a pool table, table football, table tennis, co-working space, free barista-made coffee and free beer in the evenings.
