Clio is more than just a tech company–we are a global leader that is transforming the legal experience for all by bettering the lives of legal professionals while increasing access to justice

We are currently seeking a Software Development Manager to join our Engineering team in Dublin. This role can be performed from our Dublin office, remotely across Ireland, or a combination of both. Some exceptions may apply.

What your team does: 

As a Software Development Manager at Clio you can expect a fast-paced role that offers many interesting challenges to solve. You will be a valued member of a collaborative team and the work you do will play a major role in transforming the practice of law for good. 

Clio’s Dublin team drives our EMEA expansion and is home to product development, sales, marketing, and customer success. The team operates as a startup within a larger company, which means we experiment and blaze the trail for Clio in new markets around the world.

We are looking for someone who is interested in playing a critical role in a close-knit, supportive development team as we strive to become a market leader. This team is focused on shaping the future product roadmap for international markets. Working as part of this team affords you the opportunity to own projects from inception to deployment allowing you to become a subject matter expert.

A day in the life might look like:

  • Collaborating with your triad to: understand the challenges our business faces, identify the most impactful opportunities, and craft a roadmap for the team; 
  • Working with your team on preparing architecture plans for upcoming projects;
  • Working with the developers on your team to break down a project into deliverable chunks of work;
  • Giving great feedback on code reviews, architecture documents, and more to help support team members making great technical decisions for their projects;
  • Reviewing code contributed by members from your team or other Clio developers reaching out to you for your experience with a given technology or pattern.
  • Having a 1:1 meeting with your direct reports to make sure they are supported in their career growth and development goals;
  • Contributing to and driving larger changes to processes and workflows within your team or the broader development organization;

You may be a fit for this role if:

  • Demonstrated success in people leadership in software development, particularly with large scale SaaS products;
  • A background in hands-on software development;
  • Diverse base of knowledge that allows you to help your team solve complex technical problems;
  • The ability to describe successful projects you worked on, as well as a collection of lessons learned from failed projects; and
  • Demonstrated ability to hire the best and brightest engineers in a fast-paced job market—and to coach, develop, and retain engineering talent; 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 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.

Serious bonus points if you have:

  • A philosophy on what makes for great software development teams;
  • Experience with CRM products at scale; and
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails.

Where your team works:

Clio is currently transitioning to a Distributed by Design workplace, which means a workplace that is built around you. This means that Clio offers employees the opportunity to work from one of our offices or in a distributed manner across Ireland. At Clio, distributed working has been built into our culture from day one, with teams (and, at times, founders) distributed across provinces and time zones. We have invested in best-in-class tools, technology and culture to ensure our team members are set up to succeed no matter where they live in Ireland. We want all team members to feel like they're able to do their best work here, and we're committed to supporting that whether they prefer to work from an office or remotely.

We pride ourselves in building and fostering an environment where our teams feel included, valued, and enabled to do the best work of their careers, wherever they choose to log in from.

We are committed to equal employment and we encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply.

Clio provides accessibility accommodations during the recruitment process. Should you require any accommodation, please let us know and we will work with you to meet your needs.
