Entry-level attorney job @ Silicon Valley startup

Entry Level – Recent Law School Graduate/Attorney at one of the fastest growing legal websites in Silicon Valley.

We are currently a search engine for federally registered trademarks, but are expanding to new and different services across the legal spectrum including immigration, corporate, real estate, and other specializations. We now draw nearly 1 million unique visitors each month, on more than 2 million page views each month.

Since our launch at TechCrunch50 in September 2009, we have become profitable with no venture funding. We are prototyping a new feature and would like to find one law student, recent law graduate, or recently licensed attorney to lead this new service under the leadership of more senior staff/attorneys.

Responsibilities will include:

1. Editing questions to remove confidential facts.
2. Post answers with legal knowledge, not legal advice.

Ideal candidate is interested in startups, the intersection between law and the Internet, and/or a non-traditional legal path working in-house at an exciting, fast growing Internet company. Excellent opportunity for the right candidate to get valuable experience in an interesting Internet company.

We prefer someone who is a quick thinker, analytical, who writes well in IRAC/Barbri format, and who loves/loved doing BarBri essays, and reading MBE answers for fun. Prefer candidates with experience using Yahoo Answers, Quora, or a similar service. Please indicate your experience with such services if any. Ideal candidate will provide their answer profile. Facebook/Twitter experience is a plus.

Salary will initially be low, as we are not venture funded. However, there will be ample opportunities to grow as this new service grows. Salary $9/hour to start, we wish we could pay more and we will once we can demonstrate a revenue model and this service launches.



  1. "we wish we could give more"... what a fucking joke! You won't have a paralegal work for 9 bucks an hour. Pathetic..

  2. A bunch of delusional TTT grads probably think this is their big chance to break into the exciting field of IP law in Silicon Valley.
