We're based in San Francisco and funded by top Silicon Valley investors including General Catalyst, SV Angel, Greylock, Y Combinator, and more. Atrium aims to disrupt Big Law and the $160 billion corporate legal services market.

Values of the Engineering A-Team:

- Product-minded - We work closely with our users (lawyers & clients) to understand their needs, so we can develop tools to make their jobs and lives easier.

- Ownership & Delivery - We work in small cross-functional teams, making a large impact on the products we create from idea to launch.

- Iterate quickly - We have a bias to build MVPs and collect direct feedback from the users of our software for faster iteration.

As a Senior Software Engineer at Atrium, you will have the rare opportunity to understand the problems that our lawyers and their clients face and create tools that they will use daily. To do this, you will be the technical lead on a cross-functional team working alongside strong engineers, as well as our lawyers, product managers, and designers.

Your work will be highly impactful by helping to automate thousands of hours of legal work and making legal processes significantly more efficient. We believe big, work fast, and iterate rapidly. We are using modern techniques such as machine learning to classify, extract text from, and intelligently summarize documents and emails, which creates exciting user experience challenges presented through an intuitive UI. We are a fast-growing company with leadership opportunities available to you as the team continues to expand.
