Software Engineer

Berkeley, CA
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 a lot of 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, and 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.

About Everlaw: 
We're a growing startup with a real business model, rapid growth, and venture funding from Andreessen Horowitz. We provide document analysis, review, and discovery tools to law firms who need to wade through millions of pages of evidence to find that one needle in the haystack (or sometimes the smoking gun!). 

We host terabytes of data. Our office is located in downtown Berkeley, just blocks away from the BART line and dozens of restaurants. We're also big nerds. Our CEO has a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley. We compete with better technology combined with a deeper understanding of our users' needs.
