Software Engineer



Software Engineering
Oakland, CA, USA
Posted on Saturday, September 30, 2023

Everlaw is looking for a Software Engineer for Summer 2024 with strong CS fundamentals, humility, and interest in expanding their skills in new directions. Tackling litigation with technology is a deep challenge that requires search, databases, data visualization, distributed systems, machine learning, real-time collaboration, nifty user interfaces, and more. We will encourage you to explore our entire system and work with significant autonomy across the stack. However, if you have specialized skills you would like to leverage, we welcome that as well. We care about finding self-driven engineers that love their craft, write clean software, use the right tools for the job, and avoid dogma. As a result, we’ve been able to build quite a bit of sophisticated technology with a small, talented team. Ours is the kind of culture where you’ll own serious features, write great code, learn a huge amount, and have a lot of fun. There are no sprints; code quality and maintainability is paramount.

Engineering is the backbone of the Everlaw Platform. We build features and functionality into the product and ensure its smooth functioning with automation and monitoring tools. We also provide data and insights to the rest of Everlaw. At our core, we like to build, and enjoy the creative process of building software that is smart, works well, scales well, and is reliable and secure. We do this by supporting and empowering our team members to do their best work, by tackling challenging and complex engineering problems, and by nurturing and supporting each team member through mentoring, coaching, and comprehensive feedback.

At Everlaw, our mission is to promote justice by illuminating truth. Our company culture is open and vibrant 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. Hiring for Summer 2024.
