Product Lead I

Everlaw

Everlaw has rapidly expanded over the past 2 years and we’re continuing to grow. The Product team helps grow and expand the Everlaw platform by managing the development of new features and functionality. We’re looking ahead to another exciting year of growth in 2023 and we’re expanding our own team in preparation. That’s where you come in!

As a Product Lead 1, you will have a direct impact on the product by owning features from the beginning to the end of their lifecycle. In this entry level position, you will become an expert on our product, define problems, and propose solutions that meet our users’ core needs. You will work collaboratively with our design and development team, developing critical thinking and product leadership skills in the process. You will become adept at rigorous feature testing to ensure feature quality and generating user-facing documentation to educate our users. Finally, you will fill a supporting role on our largest initiatives on our roadmap and be given opportunities to learn from, collaborate with, and challenge other Product Leads as you work together to bring these big ideas to life.

Product Lead 1s will report to the Product Lead Manager and will receive consistent support and mentorship from an assigned product reviewer on most features.

The Product organization guides the strategy and development of our products. We deliver value to our users, present and future, by setting our product roadmap and executing on high-quality product development with efficiency. Our products serve as the fundamental driver of value to our users, and support the success of our business. We take pride in not only creating a powerful and intuitive user experience, but in supporting users with our product documentation and certification program. 

At Everlaw, our mission is to promote justice by illuminating truth. Our company culture is open and vibrant 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. If you’re looking for a place that values passion, integrity, thinking big, and a desire to learn, we’d love to hear from you! Think you’re missing some of the skills and are hesitant to apply? We do not believe in the ‘perfect’ candidate and encourage you to apply if you feel you can bring value to our team.
