Senior Software Engineer - Insight

  • Location: Chicago
  • Department: Engineering
  • Work Status: Full-time

Overview

At Relativity, we make software to help users organize data, discover the truth, and act on it. Our e-discovery platform is used by more than 13,000 organizations around the world to manage large volumes of data and quickly identify key issues during litigation, internal investigations, and compliance projects.

Here you can own your career in a community of values-driven people who help our customers around the world solve complex data challenges. If this sounds like the place for you, check out the details of this position below.

Relativity is a flexible and extensible platform built for solving unstructured data problems. This could involve collecting a massive dataset of potentially hundreds of millions of documents and finding what specifically is relevant to the matter at hand.
 
This role is part of a team building a new application outside of e-discovery on top of the Relativity platform: Insight. Insight is used to prevent risk and litigation by proactively identifying potential malicious and illicit behavior.
 
The team is made up of a small group of experienced Relativity engineers who operate like a small startup within Relativity and are tasked with building something greenfield that could become a key driver in the growth of our product.
 
This will not be a standard role at Relativity.

Role Responsibilities

Be an insane Engineer
You have been a top performer in all your prior roles. You have a can-do attitude and approach problems thinking “how can I be creative to accomplish this”.  You are a lifelong learner who is maniacally focused on developing best practices and understanding new technologies. You have displayed an ability to operate with incomplete and changing requirements, delivering targeted solutions to customer problems in record time. 

You want to be responsible for the full product development lifecycle
You will work with our team to set product goals and a vision aligned to business requirements (architecture, performance, customer needs, etc.) You will design your own features and leverage internal resources and customers to make sure you are on the right track. You will estimate software development timelines and build towards a working prototype quickly so we can get feedback as fast as possible. You will be accountable to committed timelines by actively managing risks and changing requirements.  You will test your own code, build your own demos, and support what you’ve built. You’ll identify and reduce technical debt post-initial release.

You will do what it takes to make the client successful
The most important thing is making sure our clients are successful with a rapidly evolving product. You care deeply about this. We are a small team and there isn’t anyone else around to make sure our clients are successful.  You act like an owner and feel personally responsible for what you build. You also want to learn and stretch yourself.

You are comfortable juggling many balls
You will be responsible for developing multiple pieces of the application and bouncing between them. You also proactively seek out opportunities to deliver differentiating value to our application.

You are comfortable with uncertainty
We have a roadmap that is rapidly developing with feedback from our early adopters. You should be comfortable working in an environment of constant change and should also be able to work confidently with a certain level of ambiguity.  If you need an answer to something, you’ll take the initiative to find an answer.

You are a team player that brings positive energy
We are a small team that is trying to build something big. Everyone on the team is expected to stretch to do what is needed. You bring energy to the room.

You will operate under minimal supervision.
You’ll be responsible for developing your roadmap, deliverables, and goals in concert with the team. You’ll also be responsible for measuring success and tracking progress to it.
