Breaking The Law
LawAdvisor was founded in 2015 in Melbourne, Australia with a fearless and ambitious belief: that everybody should have access to justice.
We hypothesised that the high costs, inefficiencies, and difficulties of obtaining legal help could be overcome simply by providing greater access to legal information, and by providing everybody with real-time access to high-quality, affordable lawyers online.
Our mission has since been supported by thousands of lawyers and has allowed us to expand and set up offices across the globe. We've also attracted high profile investors and partners who have shared our mission to transform legal service delivery.
We're still not satisfied. The potential exists to completely revolutionise the practice of law. The start of this decade has delivered LawAdvisor with a new mandate: to overhaul and transform how lawyers work, and how people interact with and consume legal services, with state of the art legal practise management technology to (i) increase efficiencies; (ii) automate routine processes; (iii) increase transparency; (iv) bring the legal practice to the 21st century.

We Need...

Dissectologist (noun) : someone who enjoys jigsaw puzzles.
Our senior software engineers don’t shy away from tackling the greatest of obstacles. Indeed, they revel in them and bask - sometimes by themselves - in the satisfaction that nothing is ever beyond their ability to solve.
Armed with an extensive toolbelt of knowledge and experience at your disposal, you forge elegant and efficient code that will spark life into our products throughout their development lifecycle. You take a position within our front-line as you lead and mentor the next generation of engineers to build beautiful and revolutionary products.

You will...

  • Work alongside a team of talented engineers, designers, product managers and quality assurance specialists to build and deploy exciting features and beautiful products.
  • Know your fundamentals: you’re able to not just understand all the phases of the software development lifecycle but contribute to it to keep moving it forward.
  • Uphold and refine standards relating to the quality, design, performance and security of code across the engineering team.
  • Design and create: you write well-thought, efficient, production ready code.
  • Become a leader in our product development team by partaking in solution design meetings, hiring interviews, and code reviews.
  • Propose and contribute to new approaches and solutions to ensure we future-proof LawAdvisor’s infrastructure as we continue to scale globally.

You should have...

  • Extensive professional development, documentation, and maintenance experience across the full software development lifecycle.
  • Mastery in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Strong written, verbal and interpersonal skills: you’re a central hub of communication used to synthesise the work conducted between our cross-functional team.
  • Experience working with relational databases and efficient data design and access (ORM, JDBC, DAO, and SQL).
  • Experience with Github.
  • The ability to steer the development of our team members and continuously bring forward news ideas to help us collaborate, learn and share.
  • The ability to learn and become proficient in other programming languages in a short span of time.

Bonus points...

  • Experience with Elixir, Phoenix, and PostgreSQL.
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails.
  • Experience with React.
  • Experience building software for regulated environments.
  • Experience in building, monitoring, and deploying modern distributed microservices hosted on AWS.
  • Demonstrated containerisation experience (Docker, Kubernetes, etc.).
  • Specialisation in Disaster Recovery within AWS and/or databases.
  • Knowledge in UNIX systems.
  • Previous experience in a startup environment.
  • Experience working with a remote team.
  • Experience working in the legal services industry.

We'll offer...

  • A highly-skilled, driven and dedicated team.
  • Competitive salary: we strive to always provide industry market rates.
  • Remote work opportunities: our team is distributed across the globe and we enjoy the flexibility of working remotely when possible.
  • Continuous learning and development: whether by way of conferences, online courses, or further study, we’re here to support your personal and professional growth.
  • Company retreats: While Zoom and Slack is our operating system, our company retreats allow us to create long-lasting bonds with each other and to feel human.
  • A direct line with our key users, and influential high-level stakeholders (investors, advisors, and other relevant members) to use as and when needed.
