Juro has big ambitions: to become the go-to platform for agreeing and managing contracts globally. And we'll need help doing it.
Legal tech is on the rise, with Goldman Sachs estimating that 44% of legal tasks can be automated with generative AI. With the brand we have built and the agility of early stage we are well placed to capture this opportunity.

We're looking for a Senior Fullstack Engineer to join our Contract Repository team.
The team’s mission is to enable customers to organise all of their contracts in one secure place, be augmented with insights and query their contract data instantly. As part of this team, you will focus on creating a seamless experience for new Juro customers and counterparties.
Day to day, you will face non-trivial tasks and problems that require creativity and critical thinking to solve. Some of the upcoming tasks and projects that you will be involved in:
- Building from scratch and improving existing features in the dashboard’s API and services.- Designing and developing new, innovative features for document organisation.- Solving problems in collaboration with other engineering teams and designers to create the best user experience.- Improving the existing code base of the whole product using TypeScript.- Enhancing our backend services and APIs using Node.js to support frontend features.

Research shows that men apply to jobs if they meet ~60% of criteria, but women and those in traditionally underrepresented groups tend to apply only if they check all boxes. If you think you have what it takes but don't meet every single point above, please still get in touch. We'd love to chat and see if you could be a great fit.
We look for people whose approach to work aligns with our values & behaviours. For this role, we particularly value:
- Mentoring: You use your technical expertise to teach others patiently, who come to you for your knowledge.- Caring: You take responsibility for what you build because you care, and you proactively seek/give feedback to suggest improvements- Autonomy: You learn fast and don't require a lot of supervision to work well. When you ask questions, it's to re-confirm what you work on and then continue on independently.- Focus on results: You deliver the tasks and projects that you promise, and you don't invent new solutions if an appropriate one already exists.
On top of that, you have been part of a journey where:
- You developed applications using TypeScript and Node.js.- You were involved in project architecture: creating architecture from scratch, making structural changes or migrating from old to new structures.- You have a good understanding of and experience with NoSQL database such as MongoDB.- You wrote unit and end-to-end tests using tools such as Mocha, Jest or similar.

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options Juro provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Juro is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
