Job description
Our Story: Litera, headquartered in Chicago, IL, is a fast-growing software company and one of the leading legal technology suppliers in the world. Serving more than 90% of the world's largest law firms, our software is used by hundreds of thousands of lawyers every day. As a company recognized as one of the best places to work, we believe professional development, rewards programs, open communication, and transparent leadership all contribute to a unique and open work environment. Our employees are driven, energetic, passionate, and have the ability to make a direct impact on the future of the company.

The Opportunity:
We are hiring a Senior Clojure Developer to join a cross-functional team of high performing developers, quality engineers and designers responsible for enhancing and maintaining our Kira product. You will work in all areas of our stack, which includes working on the Clojure web server, backend data processing services, ClojureScript web front-end and our platform API. We use PostgreSQL to store our data and don’t hide SQL behind big frameworks. The application (SaaS) is offered in AWS as well as on premises and we leverage several popular technologies such as RabbitMQ, Zookeeper, ElasticSearch and Docker.

A Day in the Life:

Work with your team to architect, implement, and test new user-facing features across our stack

Troubleshoot and resolve code issues, improve existing functionality, and address tech debt

Build reusable code and libraries for future use

Share your expertise to ensure the next incarnation of our system is designed to be highly performant, stable, and robust

About You:

Excellent written, verbal, and video-based communication skills (we’re a distributed team)

Demonstrated software development experience in Clojure is a must! ClojureScript experience is a bonus.

Keen to help architect solutions and scale a SaaS product

A high bar for building quality software

Solid knowledge of SQL

Proficient with RESTful API use, implementation, and design

Knowledge of testing methodologies

Knowledge of application security

Team player mentality who enjoys collaborating with cross-functional peers

A strong desire to keep learning new things

Why Litera?
We strive to stay current with all employment trends and prioritize flexibility, employee well-being, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Most of our employees are fully remote, and we do not have a return-to-office plan as we are more successful working remotely. Our generous PTO and ten flexible holidays promote work-life balance. And all our employees are encouraged to access personal development courses and tools in our internal learning management system.
