Contracts have remained unchanged for 30 years.

Their content has simply been moved from a sheet of paper to a computer screen and companies have had to adapt, using everyday tools due to a lack of suitable equipment.

Because they are at the heart of business and business relationships, Leeway reinvents contract negotiation with a collaborative and intuitive experience.

Leeway enables companies to manage the complete contract lifecycle, from generation through negotiation, signing and up to monitoring, in a simple and automated way.

Preferred Experience

👟 About you

🤔 Our process

The starting date is as soon as possible. However, we are willing to wait for the right candidate. And will do everything to accommodate your needs. We are mindful of your time and going through all stages can be done within one week. Once you've passed them all we will extend a formal offer.

You'll walk through five stages:

  1. Get to know each other: A 30mn call to pitch Leeway and get you excited to join. We'll also use this chance to see whether both our expectations align.
  2. Interview on your achievements, skills and how you could contribute to Leeway's culture: Antoine and you are going to chat more about the position, your experiences, what you value and expect, and whatever is on your mind.
  3. Technical assessment: We know that your time is valuable we don't want it to be painful for you. We've actually designed an assessment that requires a minimum of time to be completed. Once done, we'll have a quick call to understand how and why you did things this way and give you feedback.
  4. References call: We'll ask you to make an intro to one or two people you worked with in a previous experience. We see this as a truly two-sided decision and we'll make you an intro to one of our investors to give you as many insights into us as possible if you want.
  5. 🍕 Pizza lunch with the team: Because it's also great to have a relaxing chat and talk about everything like good old friends.

We are lucky to hear from you! 🥳
