Are you a backend developer who wants to get in on the ground floor of a legal tech startup seeking to use technology and AI to radically expand access to justice?

We are looking for a mid-level backend developer to play a crucial role in bringing our vision to market. If you thrive on rapid innovation, working in a motivated, positive and tight knit team, and the freedom to use all of your skills and knowledge to succeed, then we would love to hear from you.

The Team 

Monaco Solicitors is not only a highly accomplished law firm, with legal work extensively featured in national media, but we are also leading the charge of tech disrupting the employment law sector.

You’ll be working with a dynamic team, enjoying innovation and problem solving. We use tech and the internet to help the average worker learn how to implement their rights, with or without a lawyer. 

As such, we have a tech team of 3 in-house developers and one data scientist, plus a designer. We also prioritise health and wellness.

The Work

Automating the work of the tech team and the legal team to increase our efficiency as a firm.

Integrating neural networks developed by our data science team with a greenfield front end to produce a market leading, claimant facing legal tech product.

Using your knowledge and experience to propose novel ways we can use technology to achieve our vision of opening up access to justice to all.

Day to day this will mean: understanding the roadmap of the data science team and creating the technical wrapper around their models, creating and updating lambdas that automate and link our systems together, writing automated tests, and (because we are a small team) picking up tasks that you might be unfamiliar with and getting stuck in.
