About the company
We automate the negotiation of legal contracts.
At Synergist, we've begun an ambitious project to to automate human negotiation.
We're building a foundation for algorithms to predict the best way for two people to reach agreement on legal contracts.. nothing like this hasn't been attempted before.
We make human negotiations machine-readable, create big data sets of behavioural data and use open APIs to integrate with third-party platforms. If we do our job right, our users feel empowered to negotiate contracts and get sh*t done really quickly.
We're now looking for a a backend focused Senior Go Engineer who is comfortable building complex, server-side business logic and contributing to our extensible architecture built on RESTful APIs. Our solution runs on a modern stack which is deployed via CI/CD on Redis and stored in Docker containers running on AWS.
We have flexible working hours, no hierarchy and give you the autonomy you need to get sh*t done. We're a small team that iterate quickly, but also value who you are over how good you are... Our culture is our greatest asset and we try not to take ourselves too seriously ;)
If you'd like to be part of building an enterprise software company from scratch and responsible for shaping the world's first automated negotiation bot with a bunch of cool people, then get in touch.
