Founding Engineer (Precedent)

Precedent is using AI to make law firms more efficient.  We're looking for a founding engineer to help build out the product.  The ideal candidate understands that at such an early stage there are few things written in stone, and is excited by that.  Here is what we can see so far:



- Actively participate in product requirements evaluation and implementation.

- Play an integral role in architectural decisions and discussions.

- Write clean, efficient, and tested code independently



- Typescript/Javascript (web & node)

- React

- SQL (postgres)

- Git / Github including Github actions


Additionally, you'll get to work and grow with the following technologies:

- OpenAI API

- Vector Database (likely pgvector)

- Supabase


We follow an Agile development methodology, with a focus on continuous integration and deployment. Experience in this kind of environment would be beneficial.



The ideal candidate thrives in a culture of skilled people who just want to do great work.  Chris, CTO, has been a part of 8 startups and knows quite a lot of pitfalls to avoid. 

The goal is to make sure people can show up and derive a sense of pride from the work they do, where smart goal-setting outshines frantic heroics, and where ownership isn't just encouraged but is central to our ethos. You'll have the freedom and the responsibility to become the steward of the projects you're passionate about. 



Join us in shaping the future of legal tech and making a meaningful difference in the industry!
