Oakland, California /
Product /
Full-time
Everlaw is looking for a spirited Product Designer with superb attention to detail and a self-starter attitude. You will leverage your respect for users to drive design solutions end-to-end — from brainstorming the best experiences with the team to crafting pixel perfection right before shipping. You will also leverage data and feedback from users to iterate upon your designs and, ultimately, ensure an amazing user experience on our platform. Your work will matter — the experiences you design will help legal teams at law firms, corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations, work more efficiently to discover truth and promote justice! 

At Everlaw, our mission is to promote justice by illuminating truth. Our company culture is open and democratic and we’re committed to the professional growth of our team members, offering an annual learning and development stipend and regular check-ins with managers regarding career goals. If you’re looking for a place that values passion, integrity, thinking big, and a desire to learn, we’d love to hear from you! Think you’re missing some of the skills and are hesitant to apply? We do not believe in the ‘perfect’ candidate and encourage you to apply if you feel you can bring value to our team.  

This is a full-time on-site position located in Oakland, California.

In your first few months, you will

    • Become product certified! You will learn the ins and outs of the Everlaw platform through a series of training modules
    • Collaborate with your team to conduct user research and synthesize results into insights that inform your designs
    • Create new functionality and enhance existing experiences for the platform by collaborating with designers, engineers, and product team members
    • Craft and deliver solutions that are intuitive and effective in the form of user flows, wireframes, prototypes, and pixel-perfect specs
    • Work closely with engineers to ensure an efficient implementation of your designs
    • Provide respectful, insightful, and actionable feedback to other designers to ensure an elegant and cohesive user experience
    • Contribute to the development of our design system and advocate consistent use of design standards across our product
    • Feel like part of the team! Our onboarding process will integrate you into the company with informative sessions on our policies, processes, and team structure and goals
    • Learn, grow, and contribute right away. We trust that you will bring experience and knowledge that will uplift the team, but we don’t expect you to know everything on Day 1. You will have time to develop your product knowledge and get up to speed on all aspects of Everlaw

In your first year, you will

    • Design the experiences of increasingly complex features with the big picture in mind while caring for the small details

    • You are a self-starter who is comfortable navigating ambiguity and driven to ensure your solutions are implemented efficiently
    • You are authorized to work in the United States. Please note that at this time, Everlaw is not sponsoring U.S. employment visas for any applicants

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 hundreds 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.
