  • Understanding the needs of enterprise customers and how SimpleLegal can optimize their workflow

Our engineers play a key role in product development, from concept to launch, so your ideas have impact. We deploy new versions of our applications and APIs multiple times per week, so your hard work will be in users' hands quickly. Half of our users are logged in every day, and your work will improve their daily work life.

The ideal candidate will be comfortable in a fluid start-up environment and will bring an energetic, fun, and creative approach to their work. You could be an experienced engineer or a recent graduate eager to learn and get involved at all stages of the development life-cycle.

Our Technology Stack

Our applications are built primarily using Django and Postgres, and are hosted on Heroku, though we also use AWS S3 and Lambda. Our users typically interact with our applications directly through their web UIs, but we do also have APIs for integrations with other legal-tech and fin-tech applications. The frontends are primarily Bootstrap with JavaScript (jQuery), though we use a few specialized libraries where it makes sense.
