  • Maintain a thorough understanding of what information M&A lawyers need to find in legal agreements and other documents.
  • Work with and support other teams at Kira Systems, such as product, design, sales and customer success.

  • 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 a relentless and 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.


  • Kira Systems offers a competitive benefits package. Details vary by location but typically include health insurance and more.
  • Macbook Pro for work use.
  • Flexible working hours and ability to work remotely.
