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 simple and ambitious: to make legal services more accessible for everyone, no matter who you are. Josef’s platform allows lawyers to easily build, launch and scale automated legal services and in a short time, over 75,000 people have sought legal assistance from Josef bots. We’ve also expanded around the world – with customers from New York to Melbourne and London – and across the legal industry, from top global law firms to legal aid organisations helping society’s most vulnerable.

What to expect

  • Competitive salary
  • Flexible work environment
  • Generous paid leave
  • Top-end equipment (laptop and whatever else you need)
  • A supportive and inclusive environment
  • Professional development (both internal and external, with a stipend)
  • The ability to help us determine the future direction of the company
  • As a start-up, a workplace that is challenging, dynamic, creative and independent
  • Quarterly reviews to ensure that both you and us are meeting mutually set goals
