The Opportunity

At Lawmatics, our mission is to enable lawyers to focus on being the best lawyer they can be — to focus on the practice of law, not to worry about running the business of a law firm.

  • Develop new user-facing features using React.js / Ruby on Rails / GraphQL / PostgreSQL
  • Build reusable components and front-end libraries for future use
  • Translate requirements, designs, and wireframes into high-quality code
  • Optimize components for maximum performance across a vast array of web-capable devices and browsers

  • Ability to comprehend business requirements and translate them into technical requirements (and then implement them)
  • Proficient with Unix, CLI, Git
