Job Description

OpenLaw is a ConsenSys spoke that is building next generation smart legal agreements. We’re using blockchain technology to reimagine the future of commerce and the $160 billion transactional legal market.

About Us

At its core, OpenLaw is a multi-module blockchain-based protocol and markup language to prepare, manage, and execute smart legal agreements. Using the OpenLaw protocol, you can seamlessly execute a range of commercial transactions by generating binding natural-language agreements, storing the signed contracts on a blockchain, and having those agreements interact with smart contracts written in code.

We use Scala as our main programming language along with JavaScript React for our frontend. Our backend uses LevelDB and Ethereum to store, search, and verify data. We are product driven and committed to open source. That means our end goal is to deliver the best and fastest product possible for our users and to do so in a community driven manner.

OpenLaw is a remote-first organization with team members distributed across the globe, and we are committed to building both our team and our software in a thoughtful, inclusive, and sustainable fashion.

We are currently looking for experienced full-stack engineers to join our team. This is a role for engineers who can collaborate with a team to architect and deliver feature upgrades and improvements. Engineering partners in this role have built features such as custom integrations and have implemented significant changes to the application architecture. You should be comfortable working in diverse development ecosystems and collaboratively within a rapidly growing team.

Responsibilities

  • Implement OpenLaw feature upgrades, improvements, and architectural builds
  • Collaborate with the team to ship major product builds
  • Provide thoughtful implementation estimates and build functionality that is fast, scalable, and upholds sustainable development goals and principles
  • Keep our users happy by maintaining the software, troubleshooting, and fixing bugs

Desired Skills

  • 5+ years professional development experience
  • Experience working within a remote-first and globally distributed team
  • Experience in API Design (REST or other)
  • Strong familiarity with functional programming methodologies
  • Familiar with front-end languages like JavaScript with toolkits like React
  • Comfortable working on multiple codebases, with the ability to quickly understand new projects and tooling systems

Bonus

  • Previous development experience using Scala, Akka, CQRS or Domain Driven Design
  • High-level understanding of public-private key encryption protocols
  • Experience with cloud infrastructure (e.g. AWS, Azure)
  • An active interest or involvement with the broader open source community

At OpenLaw, you must balance passion for the technology while knowing when and how to focus the conversation on our users. We enjoy an open and inclusive culture, the freedom to explore and experiment. We are continuously iterating together on improving our work methodology and team culture.
