Why Harvey

Harvey is a secure AI platform for professionals in law, tax, and finance that augments productivity and automates complex workflows. Harvey uses algorithms with reasoning-adept LLMs that have been customized by our expert team of lawyers, engineers and research scientists. We’ve found product market fit and are scaling our team very quickly. Some reasons to join Harvey are:

  • Exceptional product market fit: We have partnered with the largest law firms and professional service providers in the world like A&O, PwC, and many others.
  • Strategic investors: Raised over $100 million from strategic investors including Sequoia, Kleiner Perkins, and the OpenAI Startup Fund.
  • World-class team: Harvey is hiring the best technical and non-technical talent from places like DeepMind, Google Brain, Stripe, FAIR, Tesla Autopilot, Superhuman, and Glean.  Within the legal department, you will work with lawyers from Apple, Google, Snowflake, and Niantic.  
  • Partnerships: Our engineers and researchers work directly with OpenAI to build the future of generative AI and redefine professional services.
  • Performance: $0-20M ARR in the last 12 months.
  • Value: Top of market cash and equity compensation.


We are looking for a lawyer to join our legal team to expand our commercial function.  You will interface with our go-to-market and channel teams to help ensure the fast, efficient execution of our agreements with customers.     


Generative AI has the power to greatly change the world and directly impact how things get done.  Harvey is at the forefront of this change, and our mission is to make generative AI actionable and useful for our customers.  This is a fast moving environment (we are a start-up!) that is serving some of the world’s most renowned law firms and professional organizations.    And this role will put you in the center of all of this.

  • Provide training and develop resources in support of our sales team

We are a small, but growing company, and one of the best things about working in such an environment is that there is lots of opportunity to pick up other aspects of the legal work that supports our company.  While the principal job will be as described above, for lawyers interested in learning more about product counseling, IP, employment law, and corporate issues, there will be ample opportunities to broaden your wheelhouse here at Harvey!
