Your day-to-day

As a Legal Knowledge Engineering Associate, you will be responsible for teaching Kira (our software) to find the information our clients seek in their documents. We teach Kira by highlighting information in diverse sets of documents. Kira studies the examples, uses machine learning algorithms to figure out patterns, and then finds similar information in new documents. By joining us, you will become an expert in using Kira Systems' artificial intelligence software and help us provide exceptional service on time sensitive projects for our clients.

What You'll Be Doing
Develop new "smart fields" (machine learning algorithms that can find information) for documents relating to banking and finance.
Maintain a thorough understanding of developments in your legal domain, and continuously identify new opportunities to build smart fields.
Work with Legal Knowledge Engineering managers to ensure clients get the most from Kira's out-of-the-box capabilities, while obtaining feedback to incorporate into the software.
Identify opportunities to improve processes, gain efficiencies, and share best practices.
Work collaboratively with other teams at Kira Systems, such as product, design, sales and customer success.
What You Bring
You have two or more years of law practice experience in the banking and finance domain, ideally gained at a law firm, in house, or at a legal service provider.
Experience with legal operations, legal program management, and/or contract management systems is an asset.
You have strong client service skills and excellent written and verbal communication skills.
You have the ability to learn new technologies quickly and are not intimidated by trying something new.
You have extraordinary attention to detail and are highly organized.
You are relentless and a creative problem solver, and your analytical skills are exceptional.
You have strong time management skills and can successfully juggle multiple priorities.
You are highly responsible, self-motivated and able to work with minimal supervision.
You empathize with people. Your first instinct when asked for something is to try to find a way to say yes.
