Genie AI is a deep learning based software company with a mission to open source the law.

We are disrupting the legal industry by changing the business model ground up.

What Github did with open source code, Instagram and TikTok with entertainment, Airbnb with hospitality, and Uber with travel, Genie is doing with Legal contracts.

We are building a community-based AI law platform.

We have fully flexible working, meaning you can work remotely or in pre-paid co-working spaces of your choice. Apply now as applications close shortly.

About the role

We’re looking for an analytical ML Research Scientist with a passion for making positive change and an interest in applying machine learning to law.

  • You will work on industry-changing problems such as legal contract generation and review, essentially replicating the work of an experienced lawyer using machine learning
  • You will work on advancing state of the art transformer models and generative ML, utilising libraries such as Hugging Face and considering parallelization and efficiency techniques such as quantization
  • You will have access to massive scale proprietary legal datasets, as well as plenty of compute power, and the ability to publish academic papers if interested (we have previously published with Oxford University in EM NLP).
  • You will primarily work in NLP, though potentially even in multi-modal learning in the broad area of “knowledge work”
  • You will develop, train, validate and test a range of models, picking the best one for the job, as well as curate and maintain high quality datasets
  • You will develop downstream tasks to fine-tune large scale transformer models, and build automated pipelines to evaluate and manage these models
  • You will have access to a team of software engineers to help productionize your models, enabling you to focus on machine learning


About you

  • You aim to be the best in your field & don’t compromise on quality
  • You are keen to work independently, as well as collaborate with a small, diverse team within an agile & scrum environment
  • You are creatively curious, possess an innate inquisitiveness and a mathematical background
  • You have experience with NLP (natural language processing) and Machine Learning (fundamentals and Deep Learning) either from a commercial background or from strong academic research (ideally with strong publication within these areas)
  • You possess know-how in Machine Learning frameworks such as Tensor Flow, PyTorch
  • You have strong knowledge of standard NLP libraries such as SpaCy and NLTK, transformer libraries such as Hugging Face
  • You have working experience of training and inference of large scale models, including techniques such as parallelization, quantization, and utilisation of different cloud providers and cloud editors such as Google Colab to AWS Sagemaker or running remote cloud environments
  • You have knowledge of how to maximise GPU / TPU usage for speed of training
  • You possess architectural knowledge of deep neural nets, for example the self-attention mechanism of transformers, and ability to read and understand machine learning papers
  • You are fluent in Python

Interview process

  • You will initially meet our Talent Acquisition Manager, Charlette followed by a Technical chat with one of our Co-Founders Nitish or Rafie. Thereafter you will complete a Technical challenge with a member of our ML team, finishing off with a Culture Interview with our Technical Lead, Daniele
  • We look forward to meeting you & having fun throughout the interview process; please turn up as your authentic self & ask us about our Culture, Company events & Big Mission! We can’t wait to meet you!

  • Regular meditation and wellbeing sessions
  • Regular team lunches, dinners & strategy days!
  • Substantial equipment budget for you to set up a home working environment, including a top of the range laptop, monitor wireless keyboard, mouse & office chair
  • Individual £500 L&D budget annually plus 5 days off to take part in any learning
  • Unlimited holiday
  • Fully flexible working
  • Enhanced parental leave for both parents
