Founded in 2018 by seasoned legal, finance and procurement professionals, Alacrity is on a mission to create technologies which enhance the relationship between corporates and law firms to improve service delivery, reduce costs and manage relationships more efficiently. The legal industry is changing rapidly and we’re excited to help.

If you get excited about disrupting an industry which hasn't seen innovation since the advent of email, we want to talk to you. Be warned, 65% of our users are still on Internet Explorer 11!

This is a remote-first opportunity for people residing within Europe.


Alacrity is looking for a mid-level or senior, self-motivated engineer to join our team of 4 engineers. Although you will be surrounded by great engineers, you must be able to work independently and take initiative. We're looking for strong architectural and service-design skills as well as full appreciation of code quality standards.

About You

You love getting things done and deployed to the users. You are hungry to learn new skills and constantly strive to improve. You know and appreciate automated testing, clean code and documentation. You care deeply about your work, your team and the users. You want to work at a startup with a reasonable and sane working environment.

Things you will get to do

  • Further develop our React app.
  • Collaborate with product & design to deliver great user experience.
  • Focus on simple and clear user experience, most of our users are not tech-savvy.
  • Constantly learn from other engineers (we take pride in thorough code reviews).
  • Brush up on your IE11 skills. It's not that hard, we promise!

Your Ideal Skill Set

  • Deep knowledge of Javascript and React.
  • GraphQL experience (we use Apollo).
  • Knowledge of Material UI or similar design systems.
  • End-to-end testing experience (we use Cypress).

The Recruitment Process

  1. Send us your application.
  2. Have a 20-minute initial call. This interview is non-technical in nature.
  3. Solve a small offline exercise at your convenience.
  4. Have a technical interview with Alacrity’s engineers discussing your exercise and other technical aspects related to your job. Followed by chat with our CTO about your ambitions and motivations.
  5. Have a final chat with our CEO.


Work Environment

  • Open and transparent workplace.
  • Very light on meetings other than daily standup and weekly planning.
  • Work from where you are the most productive, the whole team is remote.
  • Regular company meetups.

Other Benefits

  • Your own high-spec Macbook.
  • Annual budget for conferences, subscriptions, etc.
  • Genuine product involvement.
  • Contributory pension (for UK based employees).
  • Option to work from the WeWork Moorgate office (for London based employees).
