TRAINEESHIP TASKS

Lawbox is what is commonly called a "legaltech start-up": a young innovative company developing technological solutions for the legal market. We started out by developing a webshop on which entrepreneurs can buy and personalise legal documents (www.lawbox.be), after that we started commercialising a contract automation software to larger companies (www.lawboxpro.com), and now we are working on a (still confidential) blockchain project. All three activities co-exist.

We are looking for a trainee with an entrepreneurial mindset, interested in technology and innovation. It's sufficient to be able to speak English and your own native language. Experience working in a major law firm (or with legaltech software) is a plus. The area of law you specialise in is of little importance, but we have a small preference for business law (since our software is usually used by major business law firms).

You will have two main functions:

(i) business development ( = selling) of our contract automation software (www.lawboxpro.com) in your own country. While in Belgium (2-3 months), you will get to know our business, prospect your local market, send out prospection emails and conduct conference calls to sell or set up meetings. Upon your return, you will have the meetings you set up while in Belgium (and/or others - maybe together with one of us). The remuneration of €800/month is only for the traineeship in Belgium, after you return you will be paid on commission (i.e. a percentage on the sales, because we can’t check the amount of time you actually put in).

We are therefore looking for a trainee from a country in which there's no (or few) local provider(s) of a contract automation software and that is willing to continue his or her business development tasks a few months after his or her return (not full-time).

(ii) community management: posting and interacting on social media, creating content (blogs, pots, etc.) - 30% of the time

You will be working closely with our current team of 2 and integrated in a broader team of 10 lawyers with whom we share an office. We have a sunny terrace, flexible working hours and cookies.
