We are a small software engineering company located in downtown Oakland, working in a fast-paced startup work environment. By joining our team, you will be working in an intelligent, flexible, and friendly environment with opportunities for growth. We are part professional services firm, part technology incubator, and all ambition.
Our premiere product, MerusCase, is the only online Practice Management System that curates the attorney experience around specific workflows based on jurisdiction and legal field. Everyday, Merus helps tens of thousands of attorneys, paralegals, and legal staff provide better results to their clientele.
The dynamic nature of our team means wearing a lot of hats and getting your hands dirty on product design, user experience design, software architecture, development, project management, quality assurance, and support. This doesn’t mean you’re expected to know all of these nor prevented from specializing, but it does mean you should be excited (instead of intimidated) by new challenges every day.
We’re working in the black and expect to more than double sales for the ninth year in a row in 2017. Interested in learning more about our culture? Check out our Company Culture Tumblr!
The following roles are open — we also accept speculative applications, but cannot guarantee that we’ll respond or have anything appropriate for you.
The Account Executive position will fill an extremely important business development and client support role within our fun, yet extremely diligent sales team. This is a junior level position, but it is saturated with growth opportunities based on performance.
The ideal candidate we are looking for must have the following attributes:
Additional characteristics that would be a huge plus (so please mention them in your cover letter if appropriate):
We like to hire and promote internally, so this contract-to-hire position can lead to much more for smart and motivated individuals. If you see yourself moving into a more technical role, product development, or sales, please say so in your cover letter! Self-starters at Merus can promote out of this position in 4-6 months and receive a commensurate adjustment in salary.
Merus, Inc. is seeking brilliant engineers that are just-out-of-college to just-off-the-speaking-circuit. If working with brilliant people is a requirement, and being actively engaged in and passionate about technology is a way of life, then you’ll thrive here. You are quick to learn, and excited to solve interesting problems. You have a GitHub repo that you won’t shut up about. You’re inspired by a team that challenges you to think broadly but act specifically. You’re humble enough to recognize (i.e. plagiarize) the brilliance of your colleagues’ work, yet confident enough to make improvements to it. You take pride in your work and you thrive when given the freedom to contribute anywhere you want. Finally, you want to spend your days, and occasionally evenings, with a cadre of thoughtful but politically-incorrect coffee and beer-fueled genius.
Help us turn our highly functional, yet sometimes boring, business application into a work of art!
The ideal candidate will have a background in creative arts, know a little about marketing, and yet still know how to talk the engineering talk well enough to interact constructively with engineering people.
If you're unproven, we're still interested in talking with you, but we'll probably create a contract/internship role for you for the first couple of months.

To apply: Please email us a resume and a thoughtful cover letter that outlines three reasons why you are someone we should interview, focusing on how your past work experience has prepared you for this kind of position, and, if you’ve got some, a couple of URLs to recent online work. We weigh cover letters heavily and tend not to consider resumes without one.
This role entails creating Microsoft Word templates for our clients, who are legal professionals. No authoring or other copywriting is required, but it is necessary to understand what you are reading and translate loose descriptive terms (e.g., "insurance carrier") into specific data-driven "codes" generated by our software (e.g., "CASEFILE:carrier.name").
Other responsibilities include locating legal forms online (usually PDFs provided by government agencies) and mapping fields to those same data-driven codes.
Data entry, usually of raw contact information, also occasionally comes up, so familiarity with the typical spellings of common American names and surnames is helpful.
We largely consider this an internship position, so if you're still in school or a recent graduate, flaunt it. See Other Info, below.
If you're new to the software or legal industries, this is perfect for you!
We like to hire and promote internally, so this should be looked at as an internship position, hopefully leading towards one of the other opportunities listed here (including the "Speculative Applications" section below). As such, we will give special consideration to candidates who specify what role they see themselves growing into and why. You should also let us know if you are a currently enrolled student or have graduated recently.
The pay is modest, but smart people at our company move out of this role in a few short months.
