Senior Software Engineer - Frontend at Atrium
San Francisco, CA, US
Atrium is a data-driven law firm designed to make access to corporate legal services transparent and price-predictable for everyone. We're doing this by building the first structured data platform for organizational data. We use modern techniques for extracting data that is locked away in legal documents, modeling how best to store this information, and inventing new ways for lawyers and paralegals to interact with the resulting structured data to help advise clients.
 
Atrium LTS ("Legal Technology Services") technology provides a better experience for legal clients than they previously thought possible, increasing communication and speed of service.
 
As a Senior Software Engineer - Frontend, you will have a unique opportunity to understand the problems that our lawyers and their clients face and create tools that they will use on a daily basis. To do this, you will be the technical lead on a cross-functional team working alongside other engineers, as well as our lawyers, product managers, and designers.
 
Your work will be highly impactful by helping to automate thousands of hours of legal work and making legal processes 10x more efficient. We think big, work fast, and iterate rapidly. We are using modern techniques such as machine learning to classify, extract text from, and intelligently summarize documents and emails, which creates exciting user experience challenges presented through an intuitive UI. We are a fast-growing company with leadership opportunities available to you as the team continues to expand.
