About the role

About Casetext

The legal system in the US is cumbersome and expensive. This results in millions of people having limited access to justice. Our mission at Casetext is to fix this. We identified inefficient and expensive legal research as one of the main culprits of the problem. We are using innovative search technology to deliver well-designed researcher-centered solutions to address the issue. Our product has resonated with the legal community. So far our research platform is used by 8,000 firms, from solo practitioners to Am Law 100 firms. Our goal going forward is to go beyond this group of early adopters and cross into the mainstream of legal professionals. To help us on this journey of growth we are looking for an exceptional senior product designer to join our team.

Why join Casetext

  1. You will be solving a problem, lack of access to justice, that is absolutely worth solving.

  3. You will have real ownership and real responsibilities. We are still a relatively small team. You will not be another cog in a big machine.
  4. You will be joining a remote first company. No need to relocate or to commute.
