Vacancy – New Team Member

[Update 5 February 2015: VACANCY FULFILLED]

Disruptive and inspiring innovator
Weagree is changing an industry. With a focus on user-friendliness, our ‘Weagree Wizard’ relieves legal professionals of routine contract drafting work, helps companies control risk and improves their efficiency. Weagree’s contract assembly wizard creates contracts of the highest standard.
We enjoy being recognised as an expert on best practices of contract drafting, and like to inspire our customers by improving their quality of contracting. Weagree’s natural target customers are multinationals, large SMEs with cross-border activities, and law firms. We allow them to accelerate contract drafting.

The promise
Our Weagree Wizard has great potential. We started in 2008, launched in 2009 and have arrived on the threshold of expansion. We have a number of truly impressive customers. We established a global LinkedIn community Drafting contracts (16,000+ members). As a leading legal innovator, we are creating several innovations. We are about to take the next step. In 2015, our contract assembly wizard will both enter the mainstream market in the Netherlands, and venture into the global legal community.

Our co-workers…

…are ambitious, communicative team players with an independent, creative mind.

  • You’re computer-wise (preferring keyboard shortcuts over mousing).
  • Your English is excellent.
  • You’re graduated (or close to a master graduation), preferably in law. Your grades are high.
  • You’re authentically interested and eager to learn.

Looking for
You’re available to start ‘tomorrow’. During the first months, you will have a 4-5 days working week. We might consider taking two persons on board (on a 3-4 days basis). You have a customer oriented mind-set. Initially, the work consists of inserting model contract templates into the Weagree Wizard for two of the Netherlands’ most respected multinationals, and (co)creating the related contract questionnaires. You will conduct preparatory research and analysis on model contracts. You are prepared to work in a very dynamic, daily changing working environment.

Proposing
Initially, you will receive a few weeks of training during which you will become familiar with contracts and how to insert and modify contract templates in the Weagree Wizard. In your work, you can familiarise yourself with international commercial legal practice. You will learn how top quality contracts are drafted. The vacancy is an excellent first career step. Your location will be at our offices in Amsterdam.

We kindly invite you to send your motivation letter, CV and study results to: imke@weagree.com. For more information contact Imke Burghouts ( +31 6 45 18 5777 ).

Internship for excellent law student

THE FOLLOWING VACANCY IS CLOSED (June 2014):

UPDATE: The vacancy is filled successfully. Persons interested to work for Weagree can still apply to join our enthusiastic, passionate team.

The student will work on the finalisation of our book, training and examination materials on cross-border contracting, which materials will be used in training workshops and courses for the 50 LDC’s (the least developed countries worldwide).

The work includes a review of various specific legal topics (a quick scan of paragraphs related to cross-border payments, documentary credit, Vienna Convention CISG, and intellectual property law, as well as an actualisation of the paragraph on antitrust/competition law). You must have a good understanding of competition law (i.e. focus is on ordinary course contracting where dominant market position in manufacturing, resale, R&D research etc. might be questioned) demonstrated by either having passed your exam successfully or by being in the midst of such courses.

You will undertake this review in collaboration with and under supervision of Willem Wiggers.

The internship may include other work for Weagree, related to contract drafting and document automation. The review work will presumably take an overseeably limited period of time. The work must be done at our offices in Amsterdam.

For more information, contact Willem Wiggers (+31 6 461 555 08, ww@weagree.com).

Vacancy at Weagree

“Hiring !” Weagree has a vacancy

Do you want to work with leading innovators and large organisations receptive to new ideas?

Personal Assistant

In view of an increasing workload and new customers, Weagree is looking for a personal assistant to Willem Wiggers. The job is for a period of three to four months, and may be extended, depending on Weagree’s further development.

Weagree accelerates contract drafting by providing contract assembly software (‘Weagree Wizard’) combined with model contract upgrading services. Weagree was founded in 2007. This year, we were nominated for the global Innovating Justice Award. The Weagree Wizard is a highly innovative and user-friendly software application. The application is groundbreaking for the legal services industry, significantly impacting the traditional ways of working, which is both challenging and very inspiring.

We – the Weagree team of three enthusiasts – consider ‘excellence‘, ‘learning‘ and ‘authenticity‘ to reflect our values. Our targeted customers are large multinationals, leading law firms and large organisations, in particular those that are receptive to innovations and new ideas. Currently, we are working on business development, marketing, sales, product development, upgrading our customers’ model contracts and implementing those contracts in the Weagree Wizard.

We’re looking for an independent and creative mind with the following qualities:

  • An academic level of thinking
  • Excellence in text writing
  • Fluency in English
  • An affinity with working for large multinationals
    (i.e. striving for the highest quality, being accurate, respectable)
  • Clever with computers (i.e. logic thinking), enjoys solving puzzles
  • Legal background not necessary; being practical with contracts is a plus
  • Marketing and communication skills are a plus

 

Your job will be to assist Willem Wiggers in the various aspects of launching Weagree and implementing the Weagree contract assembly software for our customers. Frankness and openness towards colleagues are much appreciated. You will collaborate with customers’ legal counsel, as well as with Weagree’s partners. Initially, your main task will be to assist in building contract templates and related questionnaires into the Weagree Wizard. This requires creativity and tailored work, and tells you a lot about how multinationals ‘think’ and operate.

The terms of your employment or consultancy will be established in mutual agreement. You will be working from our office in central Amsterdam.
