Job description

We are currently seeking a Senior Software Developer to join our Case Management team. This role can be performed from one of our Canadian offices, remotely across Canada, or a combination of both. Some exemptions may apply. 

What your team does:

The team’s mission is foundational to every aspect of the Clio product, impacting the daily work of thousands of legal practitioners. Our focus is bringing new workflow innovations that will streamline and simplify case management, freeing customer time and resources to practice law. 

We’re looking for a teammate with a history of execution, able to navigate the complexity of building a robust and scalable system. You’re a front-end leader, raising the team’s bar for front-end development as we shape the future of work for lawyers. You’re also versatile, able to work full-stack, building web front-ends, back-end services, and features on our mobile app. We want you to take a leadership role within the team and make an impact on the development community at Clio. 

A day in your life might look like:

  • Working with a team of developers to solve complex problems and provide elegant solutions to Clio customers;
  • Working in an agile development environment;
  • Working full-stack using a wide variety of technologies, learning new things, and challenging yourself;
  • Participating in diverse projects and collaborating with development teams across three countries; 
  • Reviewing code and having your code reviewed; mentoring and being mentored by other Clio developers. Thrive as #TeamClio. 
  • Actively finding ways to share your experience in the Clio development community.
  • Doing the best work of your life, enjoying collaborating with your coworkers,
  • Playing a role in transforming the practice of law, for good.

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • You have a strong idea of what quality looks like, and hold yourself accountable to that. You assist your peers, department, and organization in meeting that standard.
  • You are able to master new technologies quickly and work effectively in a dynamic and ever-evolving environment that includes distributed teams and customers.
  • You have a broad knowledge base that allows you to help your team solve complex technical problems
  • You are a leader, a teacher, and a role model for the people around you.
  • You can see around corners, solving problems before they have a chance to come up.

Don’t have all of those? The most important part of this job is that you approach new challenges with curiosity and a drive to apply what you learn to fixing root causes, not just symptoms. Deep curiosity and a desire to learn will help you succeed in this job, combined with a drive to help others by shipping code. We have cross-trained developers coming from Java, Python, C++, and JavaScript backgrounds, and are happy to help you learn Ruby when you get here.

 Serious bonus points if you have:

Where your team works:
Clio is currently transitioning to a Distributed by Design workplace, which means a workplace that is built around you. This means that Clio offers employees the opportunity to work from one of our offices or in a distributed manner across Canada. At Clio, distributed working has been built into our culture from day one, with teams (and, at times, founders) distributed across provinces and time zones. We have invested in best-in-class tools, technology and culture to ensure our team members are set up to succeed no matter where they live in Canada. We want all team members to feel like they're able to do their best work here, and we're committed to supporting that whether they prefer to work from an office or remotely.

We are high achievers who are setting new standards for what it means to be a tech company. In the past three years, we’ve launched a new interface and experience of our software, acquired our first company, launched a second product, secured the largest Series D in Canadian history at the time, and launched a $1 million dollar relief fund to help legal professionals navigate the challenges of COVID-19 (just to name a few). 

We are dedicated to creating diverse teams and inclusive workplaces. We know that different perspectives, skills, backgrounds, and experiences result in higher-performing teams and innovation. We believe you do your best work when you can show up as your authentic self—and that’s a key part of our culture.

At Clio, you have the chance to not only do the best work of your career but work that is putting Canada on the global stage. We know our technology changes lives and we’re committed to making an impact. If that’s something that speaks to you—you belong here, too. Join us.
