About Logikcull is instant discovery for modern legal teams. Its secure, cloud-based solution helps law firms and organizations of all sizes solve the expensive, complex, and risky challenges associated with eDiscovery, internal investigations, and open records response. With Logikcull, you can start a discovery project in five seconds, from anywhere at any time on any device. Reviewing data is as easy as performing a Google search. And in Logikcull, your data is always secure. That’s why it’s trusted by the Fortune 500, Am Law 200, and governments of the biggest cities in the world. Founded in 2004 by CEO Andy Wilson and CTO Sheng Yang, Logikcull builds powerfully simple software that democratizes discovery.

Job Description

Logikcull’s mission is to democratize the complex, expensive and risky process of legal discovery. By empowering organizations of all kinds with our powerfully simple, self-serve model and pay-as-you-go pricing, we’re disrupting an $80 billion dollar industry, helping ensure that people and businesses get a fair shake in our legal system, and making access to information fast and affordable for all.
The Problem:
Less than 2% of all legal disputes in the United States go to trial. Instead, the vast majority of litigation and investigations are resolved through the slow, insecure and ludicrously expensive process of discovery -- an institution so antiquated and clumsy, it’s still referred to as “eDiscovery.” Logikcull is the Spotify to eDiscovery’s clunky phonograph records; the Uber to its disjointed fleet of high-priced cabs. We empower people and organizations of all stripes to navigate the typically onerous, vendor-driven eDiscovery process with powerfully simple cloud-based software that anyone, anywhere can use at any time to find, review and share discovery information fast, easily and at a fraction of the cost. That’s why Logikcull is the preferred solution of more than 1500 organizations in 40+ countries, including more than 600 law firms, dozens of Fortune 500 companies, some of the most well-respected non-profits, and leading government entities like the cities of New York, Chicago and Boston.
What we need:
We are seeking a thoughtful, skilled, and motivated software engineer who likes working on interesting problems. You will be working very closely with our Product and Design teams to create powerful and user-friendly features for our newest product, Legal Hold. You should be experienced with Javascript (React is a bonus but not required) and Ruby and enjoy using them to build user interfaces that solve real problems for customers. You should care about maintainability, documentation, and leaving code better than how you found it.  We are also looking for someone who is looking to make a big impact and is just as happy working in a team as they are independently. You should also enjoy mentoring and collaborating as we encourage lots of pairing and learning from others.

What you’ll do

    • Develop new features for the Legal Hold team using JavaScript and Ruby. Legal Holds automate notifications and acknowledgements for data preservation obligations. Automating this management while providing reporting and insight into the process saves our customers tons of time and effort and will be a large driver of the company’s growth.
    • Code review other developers’ code so that we ship features faster
    • Contribute to the development of the next version of our front-end architecture 
    • Participate in the agile rhythm meetings and support rotation of a cross functional team 
    • Listen to customers and observe them using our software
    • Prototype new features and iterate on them to ensure we push the best features that we can
    • Write tests and documentation to ensure high code quality


    • 3+ years of experience working with JavaScript and Ruby
    • Experience leading the development of medium to large projects
    • Experience collaborating with designers and product
    • A love of teamwork and collaboration. You enjoy working with, learning from and helping others in your job 
    • A strong internal motivation. You are passionate about the work your do and able to keep yourself motivated, even when times get tough
    • A desire to learn. You’re always on a quest to learn a new approach to something and implement it into your workflow if possible
    • [bonus] Experience working with legacy codebases
    • [bonus] Experience working with distributed teams

Characteristics we seek:

    • Smart, and not arrogant
    • Humble, and hard working
    • Entrepreneurial, not risk-averse
    • Nice, and not disingenuous
    • Grit, and lots of it!

Our core values:

    • Start with the why
    • Put the customer first
    • Pursue powerful simplicity
    • Do the right thing
    • Be S.H.E.N.G. (see characteristics above)
