EvenUp is on a mission to ensure that injury victims receive the justice they deserve. As a venture-backed generative AI startup, we're expanding the $100B+ in awards granted to injury victims every year. We recognize the challenges faced by millions of ordinary people in seeking justice, especially those from underrepresented backgrounds. Our vision is to level the playing field, regardless of income or demographics. Operating across various injury cases, from police brutality to motor vehicle accidents, our ML-driven software empowers attorneys to accurately assess case values, securing larger settlements efficiently. With rapid growth and substantial investment from top Silicon Valley players, we're proud to have assembled an elite team from diverse backgrounds to drive our vision forward.

Our Text Transformer team is looking for a backend-focused Software Engineer who will join us in our mission to make LLMs more accessible and mainstream to the rest of our engineering teams. The team has already built and released some of the best legal industry large language models that extract and summarize data from documents our clients provide. This person will join a multi-disciplinary team of Data Scientists, Researchers and Software Engineers whose day-to-day work lies at the intersection of programming, LLM integration, and iterative experimentation. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to take on complex engineering challenges in the field of generative AI and leverage the power of technology to bring fairness and accessibility to the legal system.

What you'll do:

  • Spearhead the design, development and optimization of robust, scalable systems and infrastructure for deploying pioneering algorithms and systems based on large language models.

  • Engage actively throughout the project lifecycle, taking full ownership from inception to deployment and subsequent iterations.

  • Grow as an engineer by working with world-class peers on varied and high impact projects.

  • Work with internal engineering customers to understand new requirements and address them in a scalable and efficient manner.

  • Implement robust, maintainable, reusable code in a modern tech-stack including Python, Postgres, Kubernetes, Elasticsearch, and other technologies.

What we look for:

  • Extensive experience building frameworks, libraries, and distributed systems with a focus on reliability, observability, and performance.

  • Demonstrated proficiency in developing high-quality software, delivering production-ready code, managing infrastructure, and crafting RESTful APIs to industry standards.

  • Clear, structured thinking and a track record of delivering complex projects.

  • Startup experience with the ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced, collaborative, and growth-oriented environment.

  • Experience in Python or other programming languages such as Go, Java, or C++

  • Bonus: experience in AI, legal tech, and social impact projects.

Benefits & Perks:

Our goal is to empower every team member to contribute to our mission of fostering a more just world, regardless of their role, location, or level of experience. To that end, we offer:

  • Choice of medical, dental, and vision insurance plans for you and your family

Our ML-driven software empowers attorneys to accurately assess the value of these cases by doing a core part of their workflow (legal drafting), enabling them to secure larger settlements in record time. As EvenUp evaluates more cases, our proprietary data grows, enhancing the precision of our predictions and delivering more value to both attorneys and victims alike.
