    • Help fix the legal industry!

      The way legal paperwork gets done is filled with inefficiencies, which leads to ridiculously high legal fees. We fix this by building software that automates and streamlines the process.

      We're profitable and growing sustainably. We're the most popular way for high-growth technology startups to form, and are also used by tons of top-tier startups for hiring and fundraising. Our software is more advanced than any other online legal service. We've invested a lot in architecture, maintainability, and testing, giving us a significant advantage as we build out functionality that founders and attorneys can currently only dream of.

      We're a quiet leader in the legal technology space — if you are interested in changing the legal industry, this is arguably the best place to be.

      Notes on our stack and process:
      • Our backend is mostly in Ruby on Rails, with very small amounts of Scala and Go as well.
      • Our front-end is mostly in Ember.
      • We use CI extensively for linting, tests, visual diffs, and deployment.
      • We're not religious about any particular technology — we believe in using the right tool for a given problem.

      This is a great fit if you want to work:
      • ... on a complex product, with a ton of engineering challenges
      • ... in a company that strongly values good software development practices
      • ... at a product-driven company bringing an archaic industry into the future
      • ... on a beloved product with a lot of usage and visibility in the startup community
      • ... with bright people who are extremely passionate about their work
      • ... where you'll be a key early software engineer
      • ... at a financially sound company that is not dependent on venture capital financing

      You must have:
      • An inability to write anything but clean, maintainable code.
      • A strong aversion to code without test coverage.
      • Deep experience with building, maintaining, and optimizing large-scale, production Ruby on Rails applications
      • Significant experience building software as part of a team with strong development practices
      • Very strong written communication skills
      Experience with Ember is a huge bonus, but not mandatory.

      This position can be either co-located or remote (completely up to you). If you're co-located, you can have your own office (if you want). We're located in Emeryville, California — one shuttle stop away from BART and very close to the freeway.

      We are happy to support an H-1B visa application after 2 years of employment, if desired. We are only looking directly for full-time employees - we are absolutely not interested in agencies, contractors, or recruiters.

      BEE (https://beefree.io) - MailUp Group’s Business Unit that develops and markets a popular drag-&-drop email builder - is looking for a Customer Support Engineer to join the team in North America.

      Your impact

      As a Customer Support Engineer, reporting directly to the Support & Community Manager of the business unit, your role will be to help in the adoption and use of BEE Plugin, the embeddable version of our email editor. Over 500 software companies around the world have already decided to license and embed BEE instead of developing their own drag-n-drop editor because by doing so they save time, money, and all the complexity of creating & managing a new product.

      Your core responsibilities will be:

      • Assist prospects in the discovery of BEE Plugin features, at a technical level.

      • Help new customers in the implementation of the editor within their SaaS application.

      • Support existing customers when their support requests are escalated to you.

      • Help the development team by performing technical troubleshooting on those escalated tickets.

      You will carry them out by:

      • Becoming an expert user of BEE Plugin, the embeddable version of the BEE editor.

      • Becoming very familiar with the sample code that prospects use to build Proof Of Concepts with BEE Plugin, and contribute to the code base, whenever able to do so.

      • Becoming intimately familiar with - and a contributor to - BEE Plugin technical documentation, which helps prospects understand the potential of the product & build prototypes with it, and helps customers implement the software in their SaaS applications.

      • Identifying and troubleshooting issues that prospects and new customers are reporting while integrating BEE Plugin, resolving as many as you can on your own, and escalating them when needed to the engineering team as bugs, or to the product team as product feedback.

      • Interact with prospects and customers remotely through a variety of channels used by the company, which include: phone calls, video calls, Slack chats, support tickets (Zendesk), threads in the Community portion of our Web site, questions posted to the technical documentation site, and more.

      • Collaborating with the Sales, Support, Development & Product teams to deliver a user experience to our prospects and customers that’s as seamless as possible.

      • Providing the product and engineering team with continuous feedback, which includes opening detailed bug reports in the bug tracking system (JIRA).

      What we offer

      BEE stands for "Best Email Editor" and that's the original, ambitious goal chosen for this project. Made with lots of passion between the United States and Italy, BEE is becoming a standard for digital content creation, starting with emails (“beautiful emails, fast”, is one of our tag lines). The editor is used by hundreds of thousands of people every month at beefree.io and embedded in over 600 SaaS applications.

      When you join our company, you can expect:

      • Full time work in a fast growing, exciting project with worldwide recognition as a market-leader in our industry.

      • A dynamic team, geographically dispersed (Italy, USA), working with a startup mindset.

      • Flexibility: trust is one of our values and we strongly believe in results and in the continuous feedback culture.

      • Yearly team retreat, often in Italy (in 2019 the BEE team retreat was here).

      • Many opportunities for professional development through your daily exposure to marketing-leading products, and also through access to online training resources (free, unlimited course subscription to Udemy) and offline events (attendance to conferences, etc.).

      • Competitive salary plus incentive-based compensation.

      • Health insurance benefits;

      • 401K plan with employer matching;

      • Commuter benefits, and many other benefits.

      The legal name of the BEE business unit is MailUp, Inc., a Delaware corporation that is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MailUp SPA (MailUp Group’s head legal entity). MailUp, Inc. is headquartered in Oakland, California.

      What we are looking for

      • Computer science degree or equivalent experience.

      • 3+ years of experience as a full-stack Web developer.

      • 2+ years of experience in a customer-facing technical role: technical support, product support, training, etc.

      • Technical skills:  strong front-end Web application development skills: JavaScript, SCSS, CSS, and HTML; deep understanding of how RESTful APIs work, including the JSON data format;  understanding of front-end security concerns: CORs, TLS, and XSS; Understanding of Docker, basic networking, and VMs (e.g. AWS EC2) to the extent you can study our documentation, install our Docker-based on-premises solution, and answer technical questions.

      • Outstanding communication skills: you love interacting with both customers & team members, in writing or in person/video call.

      • Outstanding writing skills: you enjoy explaining things to people in writing, providing examples, how-to’s, and ensuring that the message gets across.

      • Troubleshooting skills: you enjoy finding the cause behind a specific problem, explaining it to others, and working with others to help find a solution.

      • Organizational skills: you like working independently and are able to organize your activities without supervision.

      • Experience with customer support software like Zendesk is a plus.

      • Experience with B2B SaaS is a major plus.

      Location & Travel

      • North America (US or Canada). We have an office in Oakland, CA, but you can work remotely as well.

      • If you work remotely, we may ask you to join us in Oakland (or another location) for in-person sessions from time to time. 

      • Some travel may be required to help at our booth when we sponsor a conference.

      • Some travel will be required for our yearly team retreat. Between travel and meeting time, the retreat typically requires about a week of your time. We will provide ample notice so that you can plan for it.

      San Francisco or remote

      AZ, CA, DC, FL, MO, NJ, NY, OH, OR, TX, WA

      Scribd
      /skribbed/ (n).
      1. a tech company changing the way the world reads
      2. a membership that gives users access to the world’s largest online library of books, audiobooks, sheet music, news, and magazines

      We value trying new things, craftsmanship, being an open book, and the people that make our team great.
      Join us and build something meaningful.

      Our team
      The Content Engineering team is broadly responsible for catalog management and content metadata at Scribd. Supplying supplementary data to ebook and audiobook pages? That's us. Ensuring that all user-uploaded documents are useful, accessible, and legally available? That's us. Creating pipelines that build clean and well-structured data for Search, Recommendations, and Data Science to build amazing features from? That's us. Analyzing user reading activity and translating them into publisher payouts? That's us. We're a spoke within Scribd, connecting many engineering, product, and publisher-focused teams through data.

      The majority of the team is based in San Francisco but there's a strong and growing remote contingent as well (much like Scribd overall). We use tools that emphasize asynchronous communication (Slack, Gitlab, Jira, Google Docs) and are ready and able to jump on a video call when text doesn't cut it. Regardless of the medium, solid communication skills are a must. We operate with autonomy (developers closest to the code will make the most well-informed decisions) while holding ourselves and each other accountable for using good judgement when faced with each day's unique challenges.

      Our technical work is divided between our user-facing Rails application and our offline data warehouse (where much of our processing is done on top of Spark). Many of the systems we're responsible for - document spam detection, document copyright detection, topic extraction and classification, sitemap generation, and translating user activity into publisher payouts, just to name a few - span both environments, so engineers regularly work within both. Though the tech stacks differ between environments, the engineering work in both is the same - create data pipelines to ingest, process, clean, and layout the metadata coming from publishers and other external sources, as well as create new metadata from our vast content base.

      The role
      As a Senior Backend Engineer, you've probably seen quite a bit in your career, and we want to leverage all of it. Software development will be your primary function, but we'll expect you to contribute in a number of ways, including advising on technical design, reviewing code, participating in interviews, and mentoring less experienced engineers

      When you are doing software development, you'll be doing more than just coding a ticket handed to you. You'll own the implementation, delivery, and operation of systems, end-to-end. You'll consider testability, upgradeability, scale, and observability throughout the development process. You'll regularly have one or two engineers following your lead, whose output you will be responsible for. On Content Engineering, a Senior Backend Engineer is a leader.

      If you've been a senior engineer for a while and have been more focused on architectural concerns, cross-team initiatives, and other strategic endeavors, we have a place for you as well. Just know that this is a code-heavy role

      Office or remote?
      We have a wonderful new office in San Francisco, as well as smaller offices in Toronto and New York. If you live close to one of those you'll find great people and a nice work environment.

      If you don't live near one of those offices, we'd still love to have you! Scribd is expanding its remote workforce with the goal of finding the best employees regardless of location. Being a remote employee means providing your own productive work environment. Being a remote employee means providing your own productive work environment, and everything else is pretty similar to being an office employee. We expect remote employees to have solid communication skills, good judgement, and demonstrable personal responsibility. We also expect the same from our in-office employees, so you'll be in good company.

      Nitpicky requirements
      Backend Engineers on Content Engineering typically have:
      8+ years of experience as a professional software engineer
      Experience or a strong interest in backend systems and data pipelines
      Experience working with systems at Scribd's current scale
      Bachelor’s in CS or equivalent professional experience

      We present these in order to detail the picture of what we're looking for. Of course, every engineer brings something unique to the table, and we like nothing more than finding a diamond in the rough.

      Required Questions
      What’s your favorite book that you’ve read recently?
      In one sentence, why does this role appeal to you?
      Why we work here
      • We are located in downtown San Francisco, within walking distance of Caltrain and BART
      • Health benefits: 100% employer covered Medical/Dental/Vision for regular, full-time employees
      • Generous PTO policy plus we close for the last week in December
      • 401k matching
      • Paid Parental leave
      • Monthly wellness budget and fully paid membership to our onsite fitness facility
      • Professional development: generous annual budget for our employees to attend conferences, classes, and other events
      • Three meals a day, catered from local restaurants
      • Apple laptops and any equipment you want to customize your work station
      • Free Scribd membership and a yearly reading stipend!
      • Company events that include monthly happy hours and offsites (past events include Santa Cruz, bowling, arcades, geocaching, ropes courses, etc.)

      In the meantime, check out our office and meet some of the team at https://www.scribd.com/about

      Scribd values diversity, and we make all hiring and employment decisions based on merit, qualifications, competence, talent, and contribution, not who you are by choice or circumstance. We value the people who make Scribd a great place to work and strive to create an environment where your work is supported and personhood respected.
    • Who We Are

      Process Street is a SaaS platform that helps companies manage their processes and workflows to make recurring work fun, fast and faultless. We are a lean, flexible, 100% distributed team that relies on systems to improve output 10X. Process Street is a venture-backed startup and an AngelPad alum (the #1 Accelerator in the US).

      A distributed team means freedom and flexibility: All 30-plus of us work wherever we’d like—reliable internet access is our only requirement. Spread across 9 time zones in 10 countries, we sign into Slack and open up our work tools on the schedule that fits our lives best. We communicate asynchronously, work autonomously, and take ownership of our work. Distributed work isn’t for everyone, but if it fits your management style, it’s a life-changing benefit.

      Camaraderie from afar: Being 100% distributed doesn’t stop us from getting to know each other— we have daily conversations in chat, weekly “coffee” pairings with coworkers, and once a year we all come together for an all-team retreat.

      Our values: As a small, nimble company, we want our employees to feel empowered to make decisions and define the future of our company, so our values include:

      • Act like an owner (Agency!)
      • Default to action (Processes are great; bureaucracy isn't!)
      • Focus on the process (See? Great.)
      • Practice prioritization (There are an infinite number of useful things to do. We trust you to pick the best ones.)
      • Pay attention to details (Our customers count on us!)
      • Over-communicate everything. Twice (See what we did there?)

      The Opportunity

      We are looking for a Director of Engineering with experience building SaaS products to expand and lead our team of software engineers. Process Street is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get to contribute to many different projects across the organization. Here are some of the things you'll do:

      • Develop effective ways to communicate, monitor, and lead your team through one-on-ones and team meetings.
      • Keep the executive leadership team informed on your team’s progress through one-on-ones, written updates, and regular team hangouts.
      • Build rapport with each member of the engineering team and support them through coaching and mentorship to help level up their skills.
      • Participate in code reviews, learning, and spreading technical knowledge throughout Process Street -- moving knowledge to documentation where appropriate.
      • Occasionally dive into the code - fixing bugs, improving the developer experience, smoothing edges -- sometimes even spiking out small proofs of concept.
      • Collaborate across various disciplines (Product Managers, Designers, Researchers) to help set technical roadmaps that will achieve business goals.
      • Actively recruit, onboard, and train new engineers at Process Street. This might involve tweaking the skills portions of interviews or writing better documentation.
      • Ensure customers have an amazing experience using Process Street.

      About You

      You are an experienced engineer with a strong background working in our stack: React, ES6/TypeScript, Scala, Play 2 and PostgreSQL. Even if you aren't a daily coder, you regularly exercise your coding muscles to provide any technical context the team may need.

      This isn't your first rodeo. You have hired, trained, and managed at least a few engineers before.

      We value collaboration and investing in our people, so you are an effective team builder. You know how to hire, train, and develop engineers from all backgrounds. You understand the benefits of building a diverse and inclusive engineering team. You're adaptable and you know how to build, change, and adjust to the needs of a company as it grows.

      You have strong communication skills and can partner with stakeholders across departments to balance engineering, product, and marketing/sales concerns. When possible, you find solutions that address both team and user needs, and when it’s not possible, you help build understanding and buy-in for difficult decisions.

      You can keep track of, prioritize, and lead multiple projects at once. We're a small team, and there's no shortage of things you could be doing in a day. You'll carve out time for functional projects and make sure they solve real problems the team faces - ideally making future development even easier.

      What You'll Bring

      • 5+ years of software development experience
      • 2+ years people management experience related to engineering teams

      Diverse Teams Build Better Products

      Legally, we need you to know this: 

      Process Street does not discriminate in employment matters on the basis of race, color, religion, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, military service eligibility, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, or any other protected class. We support workplace diversity.

      But we want to add this:

      We strongly believe that diversity contributes to a broader collective perspective that will consistently lead to a better company and better products. We are working hard to increase the diversity of our team wherever we can and we actively encourage everyone to consider becoming a part of it.

      Salary: $110,000 - $160,000

      At Stack Overflow, our mission is to serve developers. Whether we’re helping developers get public answers to their questions, work more efficiently with their team, or find a new job, we build products that make millions of developers’ lives better every day. We’re looking for a Product Manager to join our team, working on our flagship public Q&A product. http://stackoverflow.com/

      Stack Overflow Q&A today has over 17 million question and answer pairs, sees 50 million unique visitors a month, and has been visited over 12 billion times in the past decade.  You’ll be leading one of the largest, most engaging products on the internet. While we’re proud of how far we’ve come, we need your help to make Stack Overflow an attractive community for the next 10 million developers.  You’ll have a broad mandate from new user onboarding, acquisition, and core Q&A functionality to user privileges, reputation, moderator tools and much more.  

      You’ll have the opportunity to do a lot. You can expect during your first year:

      • First Month: Get onboarded and brought up to speed on our current plans. You’ll spend a lot of time learning about our products, building rapport with the product, engineering, marketing, and community teams, and contributing to small features.
      • Next 3 Months: Acquire a deep understanding through past and new user research of the biggest opportunities to serve different segments of our users.  This will include specific focus on improving the experience for highly active users and moderators, providing high quality tools and features they need to contribute to Stack Overflow in a meaningful way.  You’ll build prototypes, talk with users, write specs and pitch projects to your team and the company.  
      • Next 8 months: You can expect to start taking a leadership role developing the long term roadmap for the public Q&A sites. You’ll be involved not just in product development, but in defining long term strategy, improving our processes, and advocating for all developers that use Stack Overflow. 

      We like to work in public. Not only does that mean being open within the company about what the product team is building, we also try and bring the developer community in as soon as we’re able.  Here are some examples of how we have done this historically:

      We’re looking to hire the best person wherever you are in the world. We work remotely so you can work from home and interact with the team over Google Hangouts and chat, usually during US or European working hours. We have offices in New York, London and Munich, so if you’re in (or want to relocate to) one of those cities you can, and our offices are awesome.

      Skills & Requirements:

      What you’ll do:

      • Help set the product strategy for the public Q&A sites, and lead the team that is executing on that strategy
      • Contribute to detailed user research and customer segmentation to understand the core issues developers care about and core issues that cause them not to contribute
      • Propose new products and features and pitch them to the company and community
      • Start with high-level goals and turn them into detailed functional specs, and work with developers and designers to create rapid prototypes
      • Define and monitor metrics to determine the effectiveness of features, and administer split tests to learn whether a change is an improvement
      • Interact with our community of developers to gather ideas and feedback
      • Support go-to-market strategies with the marketing and community teams

      What we want to see:

      • A track record of coming up with ideas for, building, and shipping web software
      • Minimum of 4 years as a product manager/product owner
      • A deep understanding of Stack Overflow and other Stack Exchange network sites
      • Has worked on a community based product or participates in online communities
      • Excellent spec-writing and UX skills
      • An understanding of the technical implications of what you ask the team to do
      • Excellent telecommuting skills. Even if you work from one of our offices, many of our team members are remote
      • Experience with usability testing and A/B tests
      • Demonstrated ability to communicate clearly through written word (whether that's meta or forum posts, specs, blogging, or anything else)
      What we value:
      • Servant Leadership: The best managers lead by empowering and inspiring their team to do their best work.
      • Collaboration: The best products are created when people from different backgrounds and disciplines work closely together in an environment of respect and trust.
      • Transparency: Trust is built on openness and transparency. If there is not a good reason to keep it a secret, we share it. For example, we share our complete engineering salary formula.
      • Inclusion: We do our best work when we can be our whole selves at work. We’re committed to policies and benefits that support people, and managers who foster an open and inclusive culture.

      When you apply...  Please include an up-to-date resume, and a cover letter explaining why you’re interested in working at Stack Overflow.

      What you’ll get in return:
      • Ability to work remotely, with flexible hours
      • 20 days paid vacation + holidays
      • Completely free health insurance - no copay, no premiums (US residents)
      • Generous parental leave (10-16 weeks at 100% pay), family care leave, and unlimited sick days
      • Employees will never be poked with a sharp stick

      If you want to work remotely…. We’ll help you set up a great home office, with an ergonomic chair, standing desk, and any other equipment you need to do your job.

      If you want to work in our office… You’ll get your own private office in our headquarters in New York City, and enjoy additional benefits like free lunch every day prepared by our own in-house chefs, transportation reimbursement, and all the espresso you can drink.

    • Legal Operations Wrangler

      We are the people behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, and WooCommerce, and more. Automattic is a place like no other: our fast-growing band of 1100+ works as a distributed team across more than 70 countries, to democratize publishing and make the web a better place so that anyone with a story can tell it, regardless of income, gender, politics, language, or where they live in the world. 

      We are seeking a talented wrangler of contracts, shares of stock, and the myriad details that we need to mind, in order to keep the Automattic legal machine humming along. This is a generalist role, ideal for someone with a keen eye for sensible, practical solutions and operational excellence. You’ll be an integral part of our team, managing projects across the full range of subject matter supported by the legal team. 

      As a legal operations wrangler, you will be part of a small legal team responsible for supporting all of Automattic’s growth. This a great role for a candidate looking to expand beyond what is on offer in a traditional legal ops or paralegal position at a more moribund company.

      Some of your responsibilities will include: impeccably managing our cap table in Shareworks, helping to wrangle our flow of contracts, contributing to quarterly investor reporting and annual audits, maintaining our corporate compliance, and keeping our insurance coverages current. Everything at Automattic is done on a global scale and in an international context, and you will frequently be managing projects in non-US jurisdictions.

      We’d love to hear from you if you:

      • Have experience working in a lean, fast-growing, fast-paced software, internet, or creative startup, large private company or at an investment fund.
      • Have exceptional interpersonal skills, including outstanding verbal and written skills in English.
      • Possess an agile and curious mind. You’re not afraid to ask questions or admit when you are wrong.
      • Have a healthy sense of humor, and an abiding spirit of idealism about your chosen profession.
      • Are extremely detail-oriented, and are adept at spotting inconsistencies and ferreting out anomalies. 
      • Have a passion for elegant, simple, automated solutions that keep operations running smoothly, and an ability to see opportunities for process improvement and the initiative to move forward with action.
      • Thrive in a tech-centered, developer-focused environment, and enjoy collaborating with engineers and understanding technical and product details.
      • Love a dynamic, fast-growing environment.
      • Prefer operating very independently, and are highly motivated to learn new things and improve your skills, and enjoy juggling an array of tasks.
      • Are collaborative, and enjoy working with teams such as Engineering, Marketing, and Finance.
      • Excel at understanding complex topics and explaining them to others in clear, concise terms.

      Bonus points if you have experience working on a distributed team, WordPress, stock administration, software development, coding, or open source. We are not looking for an attorney for this position.

      We’re improving diversity in the tech industry. At Automattic, we want people to love their work and show respect and empathy to all. We welcome differences and strive to increase participation from traditionally underrepresented groups. Our D&I committee involves Automatticians across the company and drives grassroots change. For example, this group has helped facilitate private online spaces for affiliated Automatticians to gather and helps run a monthly D&I People Lab series for further learning. Diversity and Inclusion is a priority at Automattic, though our dedication influences far more than just Automatticians: We make our products freely available and translate our products into and offer customer support in numerous languages. We require unconscious bias training for our hiring teams and ensure our products are accessible across different bandwidths and devices. Read more about our dedication to diversity and inclusion.

    • Here at Clerky, we build software to help startups and their attorneys get legal paperwork done both safely and easily. We're the most popular way for high-growth technology startups to form, and are also used by tons of top-tier startups for hiring and fundraising paperwork.

      Despite our popularity, we have been extremely quiet and focused on product development. As a result, many of our customers don't fully understand the full value of what they're getting, and there is still a lot of room for growth in terms of market awareness. We're looking for a content strategist / writer to help us tackle these challenges!


      Things You Could Work On
      • Blog posts
      • Newsletters
      • White papers
      • Social media
      • Support documentation
      • Internal documentation



      Minimum Requirements
      • Highly considered writing — you naturally seek to make sure every assertion you make is one you intend to make, like you might with a scientific paper.
      • Concise writing — you naturally seek to find the most elegant way to communicate and eliminate any unnecessary words. You get pleasure from makings sure your writing doesn't have any throwaway phrases or filler words.
      • Work as craft — you get much of your satisfaction from refining and iterating your work until it's as close to perfect as possible. We're not looking for someone who primarily gets satisfaction from pumping out content at a high speed.
      • Lack of ego — due to the complexity of our subject matter, and the nuanced nature of our market, writing at Clerky often requires a lot of iteration. If you take feedback personally, this probably isn't a good fit.
      • Critical thinker — we seek to learn from what others have done, but use that to inform our thinking from first principles rather than blindly following an established playbook.
      This position is for a contractor, at roughly 10-15 hours per week to start. If we turn out to be a good fit for each other, an increased workload and full-time employment are definite possibilities, if those are appealing to you.
