About Legl

Legl is a fast-growing, vertical B2B SaaS platform with a mission to bring the legal industry into the 21st century.

We're making legal services simpler for everyone: changing the way that firms take on new clients, making it easy to pay for legal services, driving data and insights for law firms, and ensuring that everyone can seamlessly access the law.

We have an agile, ambitious and collaborative team, with deep experience across design, tech and legal-tech. We put our employees first and we’re looking for people who can join us on our growth journey.

The Role

As a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll make significant contributions to every part of our technical process; working closely with your team to design and build elegant, innovative solutions to complex user problems while maintaining our best-in-class user experience.

You’ll collaborate with your colleagues to give and receive feedback quickly, help to set technical direction and mentor them. If it’s something you’re interested in, you can potentially manage other engineers too.

You’ll also be helping us to continuously improve how we work - whether that’s with new ways of working, new best practice or new tools & technologies.

This can be as a full-stack generalist, or as a front-end or back-end specialist - Engineers at Legl focus on helping their team achieve their goals, whatever the task.

Our Stack and Environment

We work in collaborative, cross-functional, agile development teams that are empowered to achieve their goals, with a focus on working smartly to deliver value early and quickly. We have an agile system that aims to provide structure where we need it and get out of the way the rest of the time. We don’t stand still and we’re always looking for ways to improve our processes and our development tools and practices. We aim to automate what we can, collaborate where we can and are constantly on the lookout for new ideas that will enable us to work better.

We primarily use Python and Django on the back end and modern Javascript using Google’s Lit web component framework on the front end. For more details on our stack, please ask!
