What our Software Engineers do:

Parsing laws from heterogeneous sources
Collaborating with our Knowledge Engineering team to research and design new product lines
What we're looking for:
A high degree of curiosity with the ability to ask thoughtful questions and solve challenging problems
The capacity to envision a variety of solutions and to clearly articulate them and explain the trade-offs
The ability to use functional programming to design simple and elegant solutions
A collaborative mind-set that enjoys working with others and knowledge sharing to achieve the best results
An eagerness to give and receive feedback in an open team atmosphere to better the overall result
Experience and/or interest in building web UI applications
React or Angular web stack experience and/or practical experience with (or interest in transitioning to) a functional language such as Clojure/ClojureScript
Any of the following would be an added benefit:
Experience with ClojureScript using re-frame for UI development
Experience Building React applications and RESTful APIs
Experience with CSS frameworks, such as Bootstrap
Experience using a RDBMS such as Postgres
