We're hiring engineers! Join a world-class team making a difference.

Are you a great engineer looking to join a world-class start-up with a social justice mission at its core? Or do you know any? If so, get in touch - the Josef team is looking to grow! The roles sit across front and back end, junior to senior, dealing with modern frameworks & open source technology.

What we do

The majority of people who face a legal problem do not get help from a lawyer. And, for those who do, many find the experience expensive, uncertain and confusing.

Josef’s mission is at once simple and ambitious: to improve the way legal services are provided. To do that, we’ve created a “next generation” platform (or so one of the leading legal tech publications in the world says), which allows lawyers to build, launch and scale automated legal services that have been designed for end-users.

We launched in May last year and, in a short time, have expanded around the world - from New York to Melbourne to London - and across the legal industry, from top-tier commercial firms to legal aid.

Already, bots built on Josef can handle employment law, environmental law, consumer law, commercial law and much more.

You can read more about us in Bucket Orange, The Legal Forecast and Artificial Lawyer.

Henry, one of our newest recruits, says that he came to work for us because “it’s exciting to be a part of a team that is influencing how legal services are being provided. And it's great to see so many organisations from community legal centres to law firms adopting this new technology. ... I’m looking forward to helping Josef realise this mission.”

Who we are

The Josef team is exceptional, fiercely creative and driven to make a difference in the world. Because of this, our culture is open and we expect everyone to be a leader.

We are a group of friends, engineers and lawyers. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive, flexible and happy environment for all employees.
