Product Designer

Oakland, California
Product
Full-time
At Everlaw, we’re changing legal technology by combining serious computer science with an intuitive user experience. Our cloud-based software for litigation and investigations is a modern approach to ediscovery that enables legal teams to review, analyze, and collaborate on millions of documents. 

Tackling litigation with technology is a surprisingly deep challenge. As a Product Designer, you will take on this challenge by driving design solutions end-to-end; from brainstorming the best experiences with the team to pushing pixel perfection right before shipping. You’ll leverage data and feedback from users and the team to iterate upon your designs.

As our ideal team member, you are highly motivated, a creative problem solver, and relentless in their desire to help our users perform their tasks efficiently in our platform. You possess a natural tendency to take initiative, own projects, and seek collaboration with the team. You are professional, process-oriented, an eloquent communicator, and have a knack for mastering new technology and tools.

If this sounds like a good fit, we’d love to hear from you — even if you don’t meet 100% of the requirements. 
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 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.
