Legal Engineer, US

About BRYTER

BRYTER is a remote-first Software-as-a-Service company, with people across the world. We believe that teams are more important than businesses and that the right team can have the greatest impact. Our team has successfully built, scaled and sold companies before and wants to create an environment where everyone can grow to their full potential and flourish. 

We want our team members to take responsibility, to understand our mission and, ultimately, to be happy. That is why BRYTER is designed to foster employee happiness, allowing everyone to have as much ownership, autonomy, and mastery as possible. If you want to learn more about what working at BRYTER is like, our CPO and Co-Founder Michael Hübl has recorded a webinar where he shares some insights into our remote-first working culture.

Being remote-first means we work extra hard to cultivate relationships, including daily coffees (only rule: no work talk!) and an in-person get-together every year where we spend the time strategizing, planning as well as just talking, having fun and getting to know each other better. 

Being a Legal Engineer with us

As a Legal Engineer, you have a solid grasp of both the legal sector and tech. This enables you to quickly understand digital tools can help solve problems and simplify workflows from these sectors. You are a thoughtful, bright, forward thinking, entrepreneurial and sales-driven candidate with a passion for developing legal tech products and new business cases with our customers. We are looking for someone with a hands-on mentality, a talent for customer acquisition, and strong analytical skills. As a Legal Engineer, you are able to combine law and tech and provide the missing link between them.

Besides your legal qualification, you have multiple years of programming experience in web development. While this does not necessarily mean that writing production-ready code will be the core of your job, you will need a solid understanding of how web applications work on both the frontend and the backend in order to be able to provide technical advice. Further, you already have some experience in working with various market standard tools for document analysis and automation (e.g. Kira, iManage RAVN, Eigen Technologies, Luminance etc.) as well as for workflow and document management (e.g. HighQ, iManage, SharePoint etc.). This enables you to quickly develop automation solutions which effectively combine a BRYTER workflow with these other tools to reach their full potential.

Since this position is also aimed at people with a non-traditional skill set, we do not expect you to have a formal qualification in a technical discipline for the tech aspect of the role, e.g. a B.Sc. in Computer Science. What matters to us is your proven practical experience in executing software projects. Whether you gained this experience over the years by running side projects coupled with your regular job, or have gone through a coding bootcamp is therefore secondary. We are more curious to hear about how you made the transition from your previous profession into the tech sector.

  • Develop cutting-edge automation solutions for our customers in the US
  • Manage and execute projects for the development of integrated BRYTER workflows
  • Development of prototype workflows on the BRYTER platform

Qualifications we would love to find

  • Degree in law (J.D., LL.B., LL.M., state/bar exam or equivalent)
  • Professional experience in a fast-paced and competitive environment, e.g. Big Law, Big4 or Finance
  • Tech-savvy and experience with software development; understanding of web applications and APIs mandatory
  • Ideally some experience/familiarity with market standard tools for document analysis and review as well as workflow and document management
  • A positive attitude and extreme dedication
  • Self-motivated, proactive, hands on, and able to work autonomously if needed
  • Perfect Proficiency in the English language – native speaker is a big plus
  • Excellent communication, interpersonal, and presentation skills
  • Outstanding analytical and problem-solving abilities
  • Experience in B2B software business is a plus
  • Strong interpersonal and analytical skills

What we offer

  • Dynamic and entrepreneurial environment that encourages and fosters career development and fast learning
  • Flat hierarchies and hands-on mentality
  • Opportunities to build and develop your personal network
  • A competitive salary reflecting intense and demanding engagement
  • We cover up to 5 days of training or conferences per year, including travel and entrance fee
  • Full remote working environment – location in the same time zone as the US east coast required (preference will be given to applicants from the New York, Boston, East Coast, DC, Chicago and Miami areas)
