Software Engineer

Oakland, California
Engineering
Full-time
Join a growing, venture-funded startup! You'll be developing core components of our litigation infrastructure, an online platform for lawyers to review, analyze, and collaborate on millions of documents. 

Tackling litigation with technology is a surprisingly deep challenge, and it requires in-depth computer science, including machine learning, data visualization, search, distributed systems, databases, real-time collaboration, nifty user interfaces, and more. 

We're looking for full-stack generalists. We value great CS fundamentals, native ability, and humility, over experience with any particular platform, technology, or specialization. If you happen to have a specialty, we'll put that to use -- but we won't restrict you to that area. 

We care a lot about finding the best engineers, writing correct software, using the right tools for the job, and avoiding dogma. As a result we've been able to build quite a bit of sophisticated technology with a small, talented team. It's the kind of culture where you'll own serious features, write great code, learn a huge amount, and have a lot of fun.

We code primarily in Java, TypeScript and Python. This position covers a range of experiences and salary levels.

If this sounds like a good fit, we’d love to hear from you! This is a full-time on-site position located in Oakland, California.

About Everlaw

We help law firms, government agencies, and corporations sift through millions of documents of evidence in big lawsuits and investigations to find the proverbial smoking gun (or needle in the haystack -- pick your metaphor). It's a multi-billion dollar space typically dominated by service-oriented vendors, and we're coming at it with cutting-edge technology and elegant design. It's working, and we've been growing very rapidly: we host scores of terabytes of data and work with all 50 state Attorneys General and hundreds of law firms on some of the most high-profile cases litigated today. 

If you’re looking for an open, democratic company culture that values passion, integrity, and a desire to learn, we want to hear from you.
