How would you describe what makes LawIQ unique:
We’re a bit of a hybrid company in that we bring the best of Silicon Valley and Washington D.C. together. We marry that software, data and tech mentality with a deep expertise usually found in close proximity to government. It is an interesting intersection - a unique for-profit energy technology business in the District contributing to better relations between regulators and infrastructure developers.
Replacing opinions and positions with data and evidence leads to a more transparent process between all stakeholders.
What is the mission behind the work you do at LawIQ?
Energy is the world’s largest industry and it generates a lot of conflict. Anything that can better balance access to energy around the world, can also is some ways promote peace. We want to help the energy industry build capacity, and bolster the United States’ ability to be independent in that regard, which leads to more options in how we engage geopolitically.
A few of us, including our founders, served in the military. The work we’re now doing crosses over into what a lot of people come to D.C. to do: to serve the greater good.
What is the culture like at LawIQ?
We have a very collaborative culture. We’re still small enough that everyone has a vote in big decisions, such as how we move forward and who we hire. That may change as we grow, but we’ll work hard to stay flat.
We’re incredibly customer-centric — there’s no solution proposed without customer input, which requires developing and maintaining great relationships with our diverse customer base. Our decisions cross through a lot of teams, so everyone is required to understand the entire matrix of what we do. We take pride in our depth of expertise and love seeing it benefit to our customers.
We are also a bit contrarian. We’re not afraid to have non-mainstream viewpoints. Even if it’s not what the customer wants to hear, we’ll put out and defend ideas that we believe will make a big impact for our them.
In terms of work style, employees are trusted with a tremendous amount of responsibility and ownership. We do the opposite of micromanage. Additionally, folks are offered a lot of flexibility between their work and home lives, and can work from home when needed.
What do you look for in job candidates?
We are looking for people who are curious self-starters, internally-driven, confident and who think like an owner. People who don’t want to just stay in their lane.
We want people with a deep functional expertise, but also a general curiosity about working across other functions of the company. For instance, a software engineer who doesn’t mind getting in front of a customer to present the tech they’ve built. All of our roles support customers in one way or another, so it’s important that candidates are enthusiastic about that.
Ultimately, an ideal candidate wants to understand all aspects of our business, the industry and our larger purpose. What our industry is doing is important. We want you to care about the global implications.
What kinds of tech skills do you expect candidates to have?
Being in this field, a lot of our tools and technology are made around data science, from text extraction to data modeling to running machine learning models. The tools, software techniques and user interfaces we utilize are all cutting edge.
Skills that we hope candidates will have are:
We are also committed to giving our employees opportunities to create their own custom learning paths, so we facilitate educational opportunities as much as possible via tools like Linkedin Learning, and with company offsites. Employees are also welcome to try out new tech and introduce it to the team.
