About Klarity

Klarity (Y Combinator S18) uses Natural Language Processing to automate contract review for Revenue Recognition. Our customers include multiple Public companies use Klarity to (1) save time and cost, (2) increase compliance through robust controls, and (3) ease the pain of contract review.

We have spent years working on our core NLP platform and recently decided to focus on the Revenue Recognition use case. Since then we’ve experienced extremely strong growth with Enterprise Software companies and have doubled our revenue in just the last 3 months.

About the role

Klarity (YC S18) is building the NLP platform of the future for document review. Scores of employees in every enterprise (Accounting, Deal Desk, Procurement, etc.) constantly review documents. Current solutions to this problem involve complex workflow software yielding only marginal benefits. Our vision is to eliminate human document review by developing a deep understanding of the content of documents.  

Finance and accounting teams at companies like Okta, Coupa, MongoDB and many others are relying on Klarity to review their revenue docs instead of humans. We’ve more than 3xd our ARR in the last 6 months and are on track to 5x in the next 12 months. We are a tightly-knit, fun-loving team of engineers, accountants and lawyers collectively speaking over 10 languages!
