Casetext is redesigning the law

Casetext has been praised by lawyers at top firms for its “dead simple interface” and “amazing technology” and described as “one of the coolest products I've used in the last 20 years.” Casetext has been named one of the most innovative companies by the Wold Economic Forum, The Financial Times, Forbes, The National Law Journal and many others.

Lawyers love Casetext because we're build tools that solve the most significant pain points in legal research. We focus on design that solves the underlying problems lawyers encounter in their day-to-day work. This often means developing technologies and design patterns that don't yet exist.

Why design at Casetext?

Casetext is small, tight-knit team inventing a new way for lawyers to work. We're also a diverse group that deeply values a thoughtful, productive, respectful, and collaborative work environment.

As designers, we get to do things at Casetext we wouldn’t get to do elsewhere:

- Design new UI/UX patterns for an entire industry
- Ship our work early and often
- Hold responsibility for every step of the design process, from sketch to research to the final pixels. Designers at Casetext often lead the projects they work on.
- Think long-term about how we will change our users’ lives in 1, 5, and 10 years
- Frequently collaborate with talented team members from across the company

Responsibilities

- Work to deeply understand the needs of attorneys and communicate those needs to the company
- Take broad, conceptual ideas and turn them into effective, well-designed tools for our customers
- Develop creative, design-led solutions the core problems lawyers face every day
- Partner with other designers, engineers and attorneys to oversee the user experience of new features and products from conception top launch
- Help to define the strategic vision for our products and services
- Help to build a collaborative environment

    • A portfolio that showcases thoughtful, creative work that has shipped
    • Examples of your ability to collaborate with a team to produce high-quality products and experiences
    • Two or more years of professional product/UX design experience
    • Some combination of UX-, visual-, and interaction-design skills; we’re looking for generalists

Bonus Points if You Have...

    • Ability to write/work/design in environments that incorporate HTML/CSS/JS
    • Interest or experience in the law, policy, social justice, and/or how people research and learn

Our benefits and perks:

    • Competitive salary
    • Health, dental, and vision insurance
    • Strong mentorship opportunities
    • Unlimited PTO, maternity/paternity leave, and flexible work arrangements
    • Casetext covers public transportation costs (our SF offices is across the street from the 4th & King Caltrain stop, and steps away from MUNI and BART, and NYC office in Brooklyn), and offer Lyft credits for your commute
    • A generous budget to pick out whatever technology and software setup suits you best
    • Casetext employees have catered lunch together every day, and our office features all the snacks and coffee you can consume
