We are currently seeking a Staff Software Developer to join one of our BEI teams. This role can be performed from one of our Canadian offices, remotely across Canada, or a combination of both. Some exemptions may apply.

What your team does:

The Backend Infrastructure team at Clio is focused on the scalability, developer experience, and approachability of our Ruby codebases. Some of the things this team works on are large architectural changes, developer tooling, and all the ins and outs of developing our systems and reworking the codebase to support our 100+ developer organization.

Why does this matter? Clio developers deploy code 40+ times per day; we want every single one of those deploys to be as impactful as possible, and we serve that goal by making sure that our systems and tooling are up to the challenge and developers are able to focus on their work, not cognitive overhead.

A day in the life might look like:

  • Working with a team of developers to solve complex problems and provide elegant solutions to Clio customers;
  • Working in an agile development environment;
  • Using a wide variety of technologies, learning new things, and challenging yourself;
  • Participating in diverse projects and collaborating with multiple engineering teams across three countries;
  • Reviewing code and having your code reviewed; mentoring and being mentored by other Clio developers. Thrive as #TeamClio.
  • Doing the best work of your life, enjoying collaborating with your coworkers,
  • Playing a role in transforming the practice of law, for good.

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • 7+ years experience in software development, specifically with building web applications at scale and Ruby on Rails;
  • The ability to master new technologies quickly and work effectively in a dynamic and ever-evolving environment that includes distributed teams and customers;
  • Demonstrated success in mentorship in software development, particularly using an Agile process and with large scale SaaS products;
  • A diverse base of knowledge that allows you to help your team solve complex technical problems;
  • A portfolio of successful projects (as well as a collection of lessons learned from failed projects); and
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to build trusted relationships with fellow Clions and customers.

Don’t have all of those? The most important part of this job is that you approach new challenges with curiosity and a drive to apply what you learn to fixing root causes, not just symptoms. Deep curiosity and a desire to learn will help you succeed in this job, combined with a drive to help others by shipping code. We have cross-trained developers coming from Java, Python, C++, and JavaScript backgrounds, and are happy to help you learn Ruby when you get here.

Where your team works:

Clio is currently transitioning to a Distributed by Design workplace, which means a workplace that is built around you. This means that Clio offers employees the opportunity to work from one of our offices or in a distributed manner across Canada. At Clio, distributed working has been built into our culture from day one, with teams (and, at times, founders) distributed across provinces and time zones. We have invested in best-in-class tools, technology and culture to ensure our team members are set up to succeed no matter where they live in Canada. We want all team members to feel like they’re able to do their best work here, and we’re committed to supporting that whether they prefer to work from an office or remotely.
