David | San Francisco, CA | https://www.senddavid.com | Full­time | Onsite

David is a San Francisco-­based software startup that combines technology and legal research to help customers resolve disputes with their cable, internet, or wireless service provider.

The $200+ billion legal industry is still stuck in the 20th century: paper-based, error-prone and slow. With rates averaging $300 / hour, only 15% of Americans with serious legal problems even seek the help of a lawyer. For everyday issues like bogus cable bills, fewer than 1 in 1,000,000 of us seek justice, even though monopolists like Comcast rank in the 0th percentile for customer satisfaction. Class actions used to provide the necessary scale to combat certain widespread frauds, but over the past 5 years, the Supreme Court has allowed businesses to eliminate them.

The technical challenges are hard, ranging from automating the monitoring of corporate misconduct to crafting delightful user flows to building the leading database of outcomes in consumer disputes. In parallel with the software development, a team of Yale Law School alums conducts the deep research so that our users finally feel empowered, rather than intimidated, by the law.

We currently have a MVP (https://www.senddavid.com) and are looking for a Senior Engineer as a very early member of the team.

Position: Senior Engineer | Salary: $80­-$125k | Equity: 1.0%-­4.0% | https://angel.co/david-174/jobs/72943-engineer

How do you hire anyone wit that salary range? You're 40-60k off.


Pretty decent equity range but yeah. Maybe 100-150 + equity?
