We’re looking for a front-end engineer with solid experience in web application development and design systems.

As a senior front-end developer, you’ll work closely with Josef’s CTO, our UX designers and other developers, building user-centric solutions and online services.

You’ll be working collaboratively with our team to help build and deliver the best front-end stack for each part of our service, building templates and views that integrate with APIs and delivering tested, production-ready code with an impeccable degree of finish.

You will:

  • Write clean, reusable, maintainable code.
  • Build web applications and design systems.
  • Test your work across devices with a focus on accessibility and inclusive design.
  • Work with UX researchers iterating prototypes.
  • Ship amazing products.

About you

Your life thus far has included:

  • 5+ years building responsive web applications using Javascript, SCSS and HTML5.
  • Exposure to a variety of front-end frameworks and methodologies
  • Engineering front-end builds for security, performance and accessibility.
  • Great understanding of design systems.
  • Knowledge and experience setting up of test-driven development processes.

You will also:

  • Have a passion for delivering high-quality products and applications.
  • Thrive in a collaborative, creative team environment.
  • Treat others with kindness, empathy and respect.
  • Approach every moment thinking ‘how can I help?’.
  • Know your strengths and can support others to grow their skills in these areas.

Who we are

The Josef team is exceptional, fiercely creative and driven to make a difference in the world. Because of this, our culture is open and we expect everyone to be a leader.

We are a group of friends from a range of different backgrounds. We value and celebrate diversity, and we’re committed to creating an inclusive, flexible and happy environment for all employees.

What we do

The majority of people who face a legal problem do not get help from a lawyer. And for those who do, many find the experience expensive, uncertain and confusing.

Josef’s mission is simple and ambitious: to make legal services more accessible for everyone, no matter who you are. Josef’s platform allows lawyers to easily build, launch and scale automated legal services and in a short time, over 75,000 people have sought legal assistance from Josef bots. We’ve also expanded around the world – with customers from New York to Melbourne and London – and across the legal industry, from top global law firms to legal aid organisations helping society’s most vulnerable.

What to expect

  • Competitive salary
  • Flexible work environment
  • Generous paid leave
  • Top-end equipment (laptop and whatever else you need)
  • A supportive and inclusive environment
  • Professional development (both internal and external, with a stipend)
  • The ability to help us determine the future direction of the company
  • As a start-up, a workplace that is challenging, dynamic, creative and independent
  • Quarterly reviews to ensure that both you and us are meeting mutually set goals
