Virtual Pricing Director is hiring a senior full-stack engineer to help implement our new legal tech web application and to design secure application architectures that work for a diversity of enterprise use cases.


We’re a well-funded scaleup (no VC money) building the future of legal pricing, for small and large law firms alike. Our workflow and data management software means an end to overcharging clients, arbitrary pricing, and other bad practices that have existed for years.


Our two directors are recognised world authorities in this domain, and bring a number of signed firms ready to use our software as we transition from our recent soft launch into full launch. We're busy preparing to deploy to one of the world's largest legal teams, entailing lots of interesting architecture and integration work.


The work is varied, challenging, and we place equal emphasis on front and back-end. Because of the need to deliver scheduled features, fix bugs, and respond to the needs of newly onboarded firms, we’re looking for someone who is comfortable working with customers, data and architectures, and who still relishes lots of hands-on work, contributing across the whole stack. 


We've implemented key parts of the first product module and you'll join us in time to help define, design and build the next two roadmapped modules, and to grow from there.


There are big plans and lots to accomplish!


Upcoming projects across the team

  • Helping define and build common reusable, well-integrated, enterprise application architectures and cloud infrastructure solutions
  • Supporting dialogue with customers - discovery, requirements, technical solution design, implementation 
  • Exploring, innovating and creating IP
  • Designing and implementing business logic, web applications, and front-ends
  • New data visualisation and BI reporting
  • Designing and implementing new APIs and data integration pipelines
  • Automating quality, CI/CD, and shaping a DevOps approach
  • Helping establish our development culture, methods and tooling


We're looking for

  • Someone with strong full-stack engineering abilities
  • Excellent technical understanding of software engineering and security principles 
  • A good understanding of designing and implementing application architectures e.g. domain-driven design, onion architectures
  • Experience with the design and implementation of secure and reliable cloud infrastructure, preferably based around AWS and Heroku
  • A high proficiency with data modeling - bottom up and top down, the whole lifecycle of data
  • A good understanding of integration patterns
  • Technology agnostic and adept with TypeScript, React, Node.js, Java, PostgreSQL and GraphQL
  • A microservice-based approach, with strong SQL and web services design
  • Ability to unpack complex requirements, to uphold security of sensitive data and to conform to best practices
  • A collaborative, adaptable, user-centered approach


You may also bring - or like to gain - skills around

Domain-driven design (DDD) | Ant Design | TypeORM | TypeGraphQL | Apollo Client | Apollo Server | CircleCI | Heroku | Auth0 | AWS | TDD | Agile


Salary and benefits

  • £90,000 - £100,000 - reviewed at six months - we're keeping an open mind
  • Share scheme for formative team members (once proven value to the business)
  • 25 days holiday, plus public holidays and a day for your birthday
  • Flexible working practices - tell us what you need
  • Personal development plan that you can shape, with budget for related training/certifications
