Senior Product Designer (Remote)

About Casetext

The legal system in the US is cumbersome and expensive. This results in millions of people having limited access to justice. Casetext’s mission is to advance the cause of justice by empowering all attorneys to provide high-quality, efficient, and affordable representation to their clients.

We identified inefficient and expensive legal research as one of the main culprits of the problem — nationally, lawyers spend nearly 30% of their time conducting legal research. Our AI-powered search tools cut down the time lawyers spend researching and help them find the needle in the haystack to win in the courtroom.

Our product has resonated with the legal community. So far our research platform is used by 9,000 firms, from solo practitioners to Am Law 100 firms. Our goal going forward is to go beyond this group of early adopters and cross into the mainstream of legal professionals. To help us on this journey of growth we are looking for an exceptional senior product designer to help us build the next generation of professional legal research tools.
