Casetext is a public legal research tool and online community that’s quickly becoming the best place to discover and share legal knowledge.
We are looking for a front-end engineer with design talent to help us rethink the way that people read, understand, and annotate texts. Your mission will be to iterate quickly on Casetext's client side.
Our front-end is a single-page AngularJS application written with Jade and Less.js that uses Firebase, a cutting-edge real-time datastore, to make the site incredibly fast and responsive. Our back-end stack includes ElasticSearch, NodeJS, Go, and Python. We value people who are excited to learn new things. You should be able (and excited) to learn new languages relatively quickly and improve the quality of your code as you go. Giving and receiving feedback is part of the team culture. You will have opportunities to blog about your work, attend conferences, publish papers, and open source large parts of the code you work on at the company.
