Tome decodes contracts. Today, we live in a world where everyone – big businesses, small businesses, everyday people, even lawyers – signs contracts without understanding them! We solve that $100B problem by instantly translating contracts back into their "source code:" summarizing the major terms, analyzing and adding rich, data-driven context. Tome tells you what your contract says, what it means, and what the other options could be.
Our mission is to empower everyone to Know Before You Sign. We provide instant, precise legal analysis to businesses, and we provide the same high-quality analysis to individuals for free. We start in a narrow, high-value domain, early-stage VC financings, because the industry has properties that are a perfect match for the AI challenges.
We’re a seed-stage company backed by top VCs and angels including SignalFire, Quiet Capital, Moxxie Ventures, Uncommon Capital, Shrug Capital, Better Tomorrow Ventures and a former Solicitor General.
Today, contracts are stuck in the stone age. We imagine a world where contracts are as easy to use as Google Maps. Come build that world with us. We’re looking for ambitious, driven engineers who like to simplify complexity. Build a product today, and a team tomorrow.
You'll get to:
Reedesign a 6,000 year-old invention, the contract, for 2021. Think about designing Google Maps in an age of paper maps. You need to simplify huge blocks of text into a few short words. We build a platform that "feels like electronic paper" — think lots of caching, instant transitions, and Wikipedia-style content overlays. You can pick your design stack.
You’re a great fit if:
You have designed end-to-end systems in the past, usually 2-5+ years of experience. In your application, please highlight your experience designing production systems.
- Early-stage startup growth opportunities (both as a company, and for you).
- The opportunity to change a $400B/year industry that has seen ~0 disruption.
- Competitive pay and comprehensive benefits, including ample time off.
- Fun cross-functional learning — blending the best of law and technology.
We are remote-first and work PST hours. We collaborate in-person in SF and NYC.
Tome values our differences and build an inclusive company culture. We encourage all — especially those whose identities are typically underrepresented in tech companies — to apply. Tome is an equal-opportunity employer.
