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 from a range of different backgrounds. We value and celebrate diversity, and we’re committed to creating an inclusive, flexible and happy environment for all employees.

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 transform the way legal services are delivered, making them more accessible.

To do that, we’ve created a no-code automation platform that empowers lawyers to easily launch legal bots to automate parts of their day-to-day work.

Our customers include some of the biggest law firms in the world, small suburban firms, in-house lawyers at multinational corporations, and legal aid and community organisations.

What to expect

  • Competitive market wages
  • The opportunity to participate in an employee share scheme
  • A supportive and inclusive working environment
  • The chance to work with a clever, engaged and lovely team of people!
  • Learning and development policy and budget
  • Wellbeing policy and budget
  • A flexible workplace and the ability to work from anywhere
  • A work environment that is challenging, dynamic, creative and independent
  • The autonomy to help us determine the future direction of the company
  • Clear OKRs and goals
  • Regular check-ins with the executive team to discuss your progress
