Tessian protects every business’s mission by securing the human layer

We're building intelligent security that works for human beings as they are, not how security policies would like them to be. Using machine learning technology, Tessian automatically predicts and eliminates advanced threats on email caused by human error - like data exfiltration, accidental data loss, business email compromise and phishing attacks - with minimal disruption to employees' workflow. As a result, employees are empowered to do their best work, without security getting in their way.

Tessian has raised a $65m Series C led by renowned security investors, March Capital (Crowdstrike, Knowbe4), with follow-on from Sequoia, Accel, Balderton, Latitude, & Schroder Adveq, to further our mission to secure the human layer.

Founded in 2013, Tessian is backed by world-class venture capital investors and has hubs in London, San Francisco, Boston, and Austin.

Legal at Tessian

We're looking for a 3 month contract paralegal to help us on a contract database project.

Over Tessian's lifetime we've negotiated hundreds of contracts and we need a dedicated intern to come and help us document the terms, provisions and changes across our entire contract set, so that we can migrate them to a new database.

This will be a paid internship working alongside our awesome General Counsel, Joanna Cassey, and you'll also get some exposure to commercial contract negotiations alongside the data mapping project.

You'll also have the option to spend time in our London office, although we're also happy for this to be fully remote.

Why we think you'll love it here 😍....

For summer 2021, we’re excited to announce what we call "Refreshian Summer" - where every single Tessian will be able to down tools at 1pm every Friday in July & August, and enjoy a long weekend during the sunniest months of the year!

It’s important to us that all Tessians are part of the journey we’re on, so we offer equity options with every role and benchmark to provide above market rate salaries - there’s plenty more too….
