🤝 HELP US HELP THE WORLD AGREE MORE

Working alongside a small team of passionate developers, you will be integral to the secure design, implementation and operational management of the systems and services based on AWS automating the way people agree. You will help to improve our best practices around application, infrastructure and data security throughout our lifecycle.


🌠 YOUR MISSION

You will focus on helping our product teams move faster — adjusting infrastructure, refactoring codebase and performing optimisations of every aspect of the Juro platform.
Some of the upcoming tasks and projects that you’ll be involved in:- Developing of the core codebase of solution.- Seeking potential bottlenecksin Juro infrastructure and getting rid of those by platforms, technologies or changes in the codebase.- Streamlining, configuration and automation of deployment of infrastructure for other teams to function smoothly.- Getting rid of big monolith by microservice architectural approach and decomposing service codebase into smaller chunks-microservices- Organizing communications infrastructure so that microservices can exchange data in a safe and reliable manner. - Would potentially involve Kafka.- OptimisingMongoDB performance by whatever means possible even if it means going away from using Mongo in favor of something more Redis-like.
🏔 WHY JOIN US?
🛠️ You decide what is best.You will have the autonomy to make decisions, define tooling and contribute to processes that lead to the best outcomes. You can propose new tools and systems for solving problems.
🦖 No legacy technologies.We use a modern stack including TypeScript, Node.js, MongoDB, Redis. As a bonus, you will have debugging tools such as Sentry, Loki, Grafana and a geek tool for task tracking — Linear.
💥 Make an impact.We a still small team — ca. 5 engineers per workstream. As a result, your impact on what we build will be significant: you will see the results of your work not in months, but weeks.
🔧 Time to fix.Every other week we have tech retro - if you see a problem, something doesn’t work for you, or you wanna improve anything - we have a space for this.Also we have Maintenance week - once in every 6 weeks we have a week to work on technical debt or bugs which you never find time to fix.
👀 Code review to help you grow.Our PR’s are rigorous, but that’s because we believe in them as an opportunity to keep improving and for wider knowledge transfer. Of course, where appropriate we will also pair or mob to get the best results.

⛰️ OUR MISSION
Help the world agree more by making contracts frictionless and accessible to everyone.
Businesses run on contracts. But it can take five separate tools just to agree one simple agreement. Switching between Word, eSignature and your inbox while you chase files creates admin for legal and friction for the business. And at a scaling business, there’s no time for contracts to block growth.
But what if your business could self-serve on contracts, while legal stays in control of contract process? That’s why we founded Juro: the all-in-one contract automation platform that helps legal counsel and the teams they enable to agree and manage contracts in one place.
Old-fashioned contract systems are built for handling static files. Juro’s flexible template editor makes it simple to create and collaborate on contracts in the browser, as well as integrate contracts into your other tools. Simple contracts are agreed faster, with better collaboration between teams.
Put contracts on autopilot — so your business can focus on growth.
