Senior Software Engineer - Backend

Published on July 31, 2023

Logikcull is a global software company disrupting an $80+ billion industry you’ve probably never heard of. As a company, we’re solving a too-serious problem. As people, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We work hard, rib each other and start with the “why.” We put our customers first. We do impactful work. We solve problems creatively. And yes, we spell Logikcull impossibly.

About Logikcull

eDiscovery has been a costly (billions spent/year), complex mess filled with BS for far too long. Logikcull's mission? Disrupt and democratize discovery by wielding AI and automation to empower even the smallest teams to punch above their weight. Our user-friendly, affordable solution levels the legal playing field, ensuring fairer access to justice for all. It's time to bid farewell to the BS.

Join the rebellion as we redefine eDiscovery and create a more equitable justice system.

What we need:

As the saying goes, "more customers, more data; more data, more problems". Or at least, that's how we remember it.

We are on the prowl for talented engineers to join our Processing team as we rethink and improve how we process millions of customer documents each week.

If any of the following makes you giggle, roll your eyes, or slam your laptop shut, we should talk:

  • Distributed systems are easy, especially in the cloud
  • Certainties in life: death, taxes, and customers uploading crazy things
  • "It should be easy to add support for that file format" (overheard in a Sales meeting)
  • The accuracy of OCR tools, especially the accuracy of OCR tools after re-OCRing.
  • Parsing and generating PDFs
  • A unified data model for chat application data
  • Microsoft Outlook

What you'll do:

  • Participate in software development processes and activities with the team
  • Work cross functionally to refine requirements, plan, estimate, and deliver impactful software
  • Invest in our developer experience through faster tests, better builds, and richer test data
  • Expand the number and quality of file type support within our processing system
  • Actively identify and advocate for opportunities to improve the performance, capacity, and reliability of our systems
  • Become a subject matter expert in processing areas of expertise (data ingestion, filtering, content/metadata extraction, output creation, etc)
  • Contribute to the architectural and technical vision/strategy required to achieve our mission of industry disruption
  • Join forces with other engineering teams to process the vast data pulled from a growing list of external integrations
  • Be an active participant in the team's production support duties

What we're looking for:

  • Know how to play nice with others, always happy to support team members on a shared mission
  • Not scared of moving fast, shipping frequently, and switching contexts (while assertively protecting your ability to focus) to get the job done
  • Comfort working in a multi-lingual world, having expertise in Ruby, Java, Kotlin, and/or Typescript
  • Provable experience and skills solving relevant or translatable problems 
  • Solid understanding of computer science fundamentals and concepts
  • Desire to work with many file formats, lots of data, and complex distributed systems
  • Respect of and exposure to the value and challenges of system observability
  • Relentless optimism that building the processing platform of the future is very much achievable with a good group of motivated smart people and a direct line of communication to our customers
