DevOps Engineer

Employment type: Full time

Location: Australia (we’re a remote-first distributed team, so flexible on exact location)


About the job

Josef is a game-changing no-code automation platform. A wave of digital transformation is sweeping the legal industry, and we’re looking for a talented DevOps Engineer to join us for the ride.

We are a good bunch of people making great software. Our team is remote-first, globally diverse, smart, respectful and highly collaborative. Internal politics, resistance to change, long-winded approvals process, and endless meetings are all things that don’t describe how we don’t work.

We are looking for an experienced DevOps Engineer to help us build functional systems that improve the customer experience. Someone who will be responsible for deploying product updates, helping identify production issues, building out CI/CD, delivery pipeline and implementing integrations that meet our customers’ needs. We are not looking for any Ninjas or Rockstars. You don’t need 3,000 years’ experience in Web 3.0 or a PHD in Rocket Surgery.

Who is Josef?

The law doesn’t work. (Well, it doesn’t work for everyone.) Globally, more than 5 billion people don’t have access to legal services.

Why does this matter?

If people don’t get access to the legal help they need, they face worse outcomes in life, whether they’re negotiating with their landlord, disputing a public transport fine, or doing their tax.

At Josef, this is the problem we spend every day trying to fix. We do this through our beautifully designed no-code automation platform, empowering lawyers to transform the way they work.

Our customers include some of the biggest law firms in the world, small suburban firms, in-house lawyers at multinational corporations, and legal aid and community organisations.
