Job Description

DevOps Engineer at Everlaw

Join a growing, venture-funded startup! We manage petabytes of data and dozens of AWS environments across multiple countries. Our clients use Everlaw to operate on mission-critical and highly confidential data and trust us to maintain a secure, performant, and resilient platform. We take this trust very seriously and are looking to hire engineers with expertise in these areas to take our software development practices to the next level.

Our team has laid out the groundwork on many initiatives to improve engineering operations but there is more we can do. Our company is growing quickly and we are looking to not just keep pace as an operations team but to excel. You’ll help us keep these priorities in focus and help us get even better as we expand our offerings and host orders-of-magnitude more data.

Engineering is the backbone of the Everlaw Platform. We build features and functionality into the product and ensure its smooth functioning. We also provide data and insights to the rest of Everlaw. At our core, we like to build and enjoy the creative process of building software that is smart, that works well, that scales well, and that is reliable and secure. We do this by supporting and empowering our team members to do their best work, by tackling challenging and complex engineering problems and by nurturing and supporting each team member through mentoring, coaching, and comprehensive feedback. 

At Everlaw, our mission is to promote justice by illuminating truth. Our company culture is open and democratic and we’re committed to the professional growth of our team members, offering an annual learning and development stipend and regular check-ins with managers regarding career goals. If you’re looking for a place that values passion, integrity, thinking big, and a desire to learn, we’d love to hear from you! Think you’re missing some of the skills and are hesitant to apply?
