Clio is more than just a tech company–we are a global leader that is transforming the legal experience for all by bettering the lives of legal professionals while increasing access to justice

We’re looking for a  Software Development Manager  to join our rapidly growing engineering team. This role is for someone who is passionate about building innovative solutions and being exposed to new challenges and technologies while making an impact. This role is available to candidates across Canada, excluding Quebec.

What your team does:  

This new team will help develop the future of payments in the legal industry. Our customers are going through a seismic shift in how they service their clients and the expectations around their relationship and behaviours. Expectations around their payments experience is not an exception. Legal has been slow to adopt electronic payments, but the last few years have seen a dramatic tipping point and rapid adoption. We want to ensure our customers and their clients can benefit from best-in-class user experiences with payments. We’re looking for someone who can help with the execution of Clio’s payment products and also navigate the complexity of building a robust system from scratch.

What you’ll work on:

  • Merging and deploying a pull request that you opened earlier and had the team review
  • Working with your team on preparing an architecture document for an upcoming project
  • Having a 1:1 meeting with your direct reports to make sure they are supported in their career growth and development goals
  • Working with the developers on your team to break down a project into deliverable chunks of work
  • Reviewing code contributed by members from your team or other Clio developers reaching out to you for your experience with a given technology or pattern
  • Giving great feedback on code reviews, architecture documents, and more to help support team members making great technical decisions for their projects
  • Contributing to or even driving larger changes to processes and workflows within the development organization
  • Communicating and coordinating with our systems engineering and product teams to share new changes rolling out as well as gather insights into what struggles they’re having that we can deliver code to help with

What you may have:

  • Demonstrated success in people leadership in software development, particularly with large scale SaaS products;
  • Possess a diverse base of knowledge that allows you to help your team solve complex technical problems;
  • Curious and have a drive to explore different approaches when solving problems;
  • Able to describe successful projects you worked on, as well as a collection of lessons learned from failed projects; and
  • Have a demonstrated ability or desire to learn how to hire the best and brightest engineers in a competitive job market—and to coach, develop, and retain engineering talent.

Serious bonus points if you have:

  • A philosophy on what makes for great software development teams;
  • Ideas on how to successfully scale and grow a development organization; and
  • Have a background in hands-on software development using Ruby and Ruby on Rails, specifically with building web applications at scale.

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.
