With the help of the cloud, we make lawyers’ lives simpler and help them better organize and manage their legal practices.

Clio is looking for a Development Manager to join the team that builds and manages the infrastructure that underlies the development and runtime of our applications.

We're building a cross-Canada, distributed team that forms the foundation of Clio's engineering organization:

  • We build, secure, and maintain the infrastructure and critical services that power Clio’s core applications.
  • We help Clions make data-driven decisions by providing observability and transparency for all of our environments.
  • We collaborate with the Clio product development teams to build tools that improve workflows and remove manual labour or friction points.

Who you are:

  • You are equally energized by both your own technical work as well as contributing to the career growth of your team;
  • You have strong opinions that are weakly held, and foster that same attitude in others;
  • You challenge and enable your team to take initiative, explore, and implement new improvements while balancing that work against satisfying the requirements as defined by the business;
  • You believe in providing honest, actionable feedback to your team, and encourage your team to reciprocate;
  • You devise roadmaps to guide your team, but aren't beholden to them -- you easily adapt to a constantly changing world.

 What you'll be doing:

  • You’ll split your time between being a high-impact contributor to our projects and being a high-impact leader, growing your team;
  • You will collaboratively define the roadmap to build a world-class developer experience, support business goals, and satisfy application requirements;
  • You will contribute to, and have a deep understanding of, the code base and your technical domains;
  • You will scope, define, and implement the infrastructure, automation, and processes that power the entire engineering organization;
  • You'll write clean, maintainable code, and continue to grow your development skills;
  • Foster and maintain a collaborative environment that highlights team prioritization, removing roadblocks, and sharing unique and creative solutions;
  • Elevate and educate our engineering processes within Clio, contributing to our cultural values of “No doors, only windows” (an emphasis on collaboration and clear communication) and “Live a learning mindset” (an emphasis on constant self-improvement and evolution in the face of change).

What you should have:

  • Hands-on technical expertise with building or supporting software. Examples of relevant experience are: software development, *nix systems administration, infrastructure as code, cloud resource administration, or database administration. Bonus points for experience working with infrastructure at scale;
  • A demonstrated success in guiding technical teams. Experience with or a desire to learn about Agile processes and large scale SaaS products;
  • A diverse base of knowledge that allows you to guide your team to solve complex technical problems;
  • The ability or desire to learn how to hire the best and brightest in Canada;
  • An aptitude for coaching, developing, and retaining talent;
  • A portfolio of successful projects (as well as a collection of lessons learned from failed projects).

Serious bonus points if you have:

  • Experience managing hosts with Puppet.
  • Experience working with Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Experience developing with Ruby or GoLang.
  • Experience managing AWS resources with CloudFormation or Terraform.
  • Experience scripting with BASH.
  • Experience administering any of: Elasticsearch, Kafka, MySQL, Redis.

Why Clio?

  • The chance to do work that matters on a product that truly changes lives. This is the place for driven people who want to make their mark.
  • The freedom to choose your own path (and change it) to build a meaningful career that works for you.
  • Excellent health and dental coverage, 4 weeks vacation time, parental leave options and education spending
