    We’re Kira Systems. Kira is a machine learning software that enlightens the world’s enterprises by enabling them to truly know what’s in their contracts and documents.

    We’re part of the Litera family. Litera is a fast-growing software company leading the way to provide legal workflow and workspace technology to hundreds of organizations around the globe. Together, we’re bold in our decision making, clear on our mission and – most importantly – passionate about pairing the power of human know-how with a powerful product.

    We’re a global workforce. While we have offices in regions spanning from Chicago to Australia, our remote-first ideology has allowed us to remove hiring barriers so that we can get the best people for the job – wherever they may live.

    From building trusted partnerships with our clients to delivering an employee experience that is second to none, our people are at the center of all that we do.

    All the benefits and perks. We’ve got your back. Literally. Got a knot in your back? We have a comprehensive health and benefits plan for your and your family.

    Generous vacation policy? Check. We know how important it is to take time to recharge. Our generous vacation policy allows you to take the time you need.

    Planning for your future. We help our team members save for their futures by providing 401(k) (USA) and RRSP (Canada) matching programs.
