About Atticus

At any given time, 16 million Americans are experiencing a crisis that requires urgent help from our legal system or government. The right assistance could transform their lives. But today, most never get it. 

Atticus makes it easy for any sick or injured person in crisis to get the life-changing aid they deserve. In just three years, we’ve become the leading platform connecting people with disabilities to government benefits. We also help victims of accidents, misconduct, and violence get compensation from insurance. So far, we’ve gotten thousands of people access to over $2B in life-changing aid, and we’re just getting started.

We've helped more than 20,000 people in need (see our 6,000+ five-star reviews) and raised more than $50 million from top VC firms like Forerunner, GV (Google Ventures), and True Ventures. (We just closed our Series B round in May 2023, so we're well-funded for the foreseeable future.) We're small but moving fast — our team grew from 52 to 91 last year and we expect to grow again in 2024.

The Job

Each day, hundreds of people seek our help getting disability benefits or insurance compensation. They’re intimidated by the process, unsure where to turn, and desperate for good advice.

Atticus’s role, often, is to connect these individuals with a local law firm. These firms have deep domain expertise, and understand the particularities of their locality— from San Francisco to Tuscaloosa. The team that finds and manages these firms is called the Lawyer Network. 

As an attorney on our Lawyer Network team, your job is to find these firms, vet them for quality, convince them to join our network, and then work with them to improve their businesses. It’s a varied job, and a typical day might include: 

Sourcing, Vetting, and Selling: 

  • Finding quality law firms isn’t easy (it’s a big reason for why we exist)! Your job is to scour trade groups, forums, reviews, and our own network to find the very best. 
  • Once you do find them, you’ll then need to explain what we are (we’re unique, and most firms aren’t familiar with our model), while vetting them for quality — we only work with firms we’d refer a family member to.
  • It’s a unique version of sales that mixes selling with vetting and business development. 

Account Management:

  • Atticus only succeeds when a network firm wins a client's case, so the Lawyer Network works hard to improve our firms’ ability to win cases. 
  • This includes deeply understanding how the best firms operate and then sharing that information across our network. It also includes bettering Atticus’ internal product for law firms. 
  • This, like our selling function, is a unique version of account management: this role is about building deep relationships with our firms and working together as partners.

Other startup things:

  • Cross-functional work: The Lawyer Network acts as the voice for our law firm partners across Atticus. This means we’re often brought into cross-functional projects, including working closely with our product and design team to develop tools for firms, advising marketing on how to best voice the value our firms provide, and working with finance to make sure we’re paid on time, among other projects. 
  • Special projects: We’re a small team, and there’s a ton we need to do, much of which is hard to categorize in a job description. Your future projects might include standing up a new legal vertical, interviewing law firms to better understand how we can assist them, bringing new legal products to market, and much more. 

This job is a unique opportunity to do meaningful social impact work as an attorney in a rapidly scaling startup with smart and caring coworkers where we put a premium on work-life balance. 

You’ll be one of the first one hundred employees at Atticus, one of the founding ten members of the Lawyer Network, and the first lawyer directly hired to this team. If you excel, you’ll be promoted quickly because there’s so much still to do. Your path from here could include growing as an executive at Atticus or transitioning further into tech/business as a founder or executive. 



  • You have 2 to 5 years of experience at a top law firm, U.S. government agency, or non-profit organization where you exhibited a track record of achievement.
  • You have a degree from a top U.S. law school with strong academic performance, and you are currently admitted to the bar association in a U.S. state.
  • You’d enjoy regularly chatting with the staff at a law firm (from receptionists to partners), and would do so with confidence and professionalism.
  • You are a resourceful team-player ready to dive into a scrappy startup environment where you will get your hands dirty; you’re eager to take on tasks ranging from strategic priorities to tactical necessities. 
  • You have a demonstrated commitment to doing good and helping people. 

Bonus / Nice-to-Have:

  • You have several years of meaningful work experience prior to attending law school, especially in client service, sales, or business environments. 

We are strongly committed to building a diverse team. If you’re from a background that’s underrepresented in tech, we’d love to meet you.

Salary and Benefits

This is a rare opportunity to join a startup that has strong traction (substantial funding, well-respected backers, tremendous growth, and many happy customers) but is still small enough that you can have a huge impact and play a role in shaping our culture.

We’re a certified B Corporation tackling a critical social problem. Our mission to help people in need drives everything we do, and your work here will touch many lives.

We offer competitive pay — including equity — and generous benefits:

  • Medical and dental insurance with 100% of employee premiums covered
  • 15 vacation days & 16 paid holidays each year
  • Free membership to OneMedical
  • $1,000/year reimbursable stipend for education and training outside of work 
  • $600/year reimbursable stipend for internet service
  • Up to $1,200/year student loan repayment assistance
  • 401(k) and optional HSA
  • Free snacks, drinks, weekly lunches, and regular team dinners/events/retreats
  • Humble, thoughtful, smart, fun colleagues

We anticipate the base salary for this role will be around $150,000 in addition to equity and benefits. The salary at offer will be determined by a number of factors such as candidate’s experience, knowledge, skills and abilities, as well as internal equity among our team.


Today, about half our team are in Los Angeles or Phoenix (where we have offices) and half are fully remote and spread across the U.S. There are two options for this job:

  1. Live in Los Angeles, work a few days a week (or more) out of our beautiful office in the Arts District.
  2. Live wherever, work remotely, and travel to LA (on the company dime) as needed to be with your colleagues —somewhere between monthly and quarterly.

In short: You can do this job well remotely, and we’re committed to empowering everyone with flexibility. But we care a lot about building a great culture and we think some interactions need to happen in person, so we put a lot of thought into retreats, offsites, and other ways to gather.
