Senior Software Engineer (Ruby and React)

Job Description

Posted about 2 months ago

What we need:

We are seeking a thoughtful, skilled, and motivated software engineer who likes working on interesting problems. You will be working very closely with our Product and Design teams to create powerful and user-friendly features for our newest product, Legal Hold. You should be experienced with Javascript (React is a bonus but not required) and Ruby and enjoy using them to build user interfaces that solve real problems for customers. You should care about maintainability, documentation, and leaving code better than how you found it.  We are also looking for someone who is looking to make a big impact and is just as happy working in a team as they are independently. You should also enjoy mentoring and collaborating as we encourage lots of pairing and learning from others.

The problem

We live in a world where data is no longer information. It’s noise. It’s multiplying by the second. It’s ALL discoverable. And it’s making legal discovery -- the process of searching and reviewing evidence for disputes and investigations -- a total nightmare: complex, insecure and extremely costly. Logikcull’s powerfully simple cloud-based software automatically organizes and culls the data noise to help quickly find the signal. That’s why it’s the go-to solution for more than 1500 in-house legal teams, law firms and government organizations who rely on it to make discovery insanely fast, affordable and secure.  

About us

Our mission is to accelerate the democratization of powerfully simple discovery software. Today, the discovery process is compromised by the explosion of data in disputes and investigations -- 97% of which is noise, completely irrelevant to the matter at hand, and making discovery ridiculously expensive. By empowering organizations of all kinds with user-friendly, self-serve software that automatically organizes and culls the noise, we’re disrupting an $80 billion dollar industry, helping ensure that people and businesses get a fair shake in our legal system, and making access to information fast and affordable for all.
