Everlaw is looking for a highly-motivated User Researcher with a self-starter attitude and a process-driven mindset. As the first User Researcher at Everlaw, you will elevate the entire product development team’s understanding of our users to build a product that helps legal teams, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations to discover truth and promote justice. You will leverage your respect for users to help us better address user needs and play a key role in ensuring an amazing user experience on our platform.

At Everlaw, our mission is to promote justice by illuminating truth. Our company culture is open and democratic and we’re committed to the professional growth of our team members, offering an annual learning and development stipend and regular check-ins with managers regarding career goals.
