There's going to come a day when you need to get something notarized. When that day comes, wouldn't you rather do it from your kitchen? In the same time it takes to make a sandwich? 

Notarize is the first on-demand notary platform, allowing anyone to notarize a document online and empowering businesses to send, track and collect notarizations. We're helping people execute the most important transactions of their lives and streamlining operations for countless industries.

We're looking for talented Back-End Developers to join our growing team in Back Bay, Boston. You'll be part of a multi-functional team, working with designers, front-end developers, product managers and our senior leadership team as you design, build and extend systems to support our platform and API.

Our tech:

  • We currently use Rails 5, React.js, and GraphQL with Relay, but we consider ourselves platform agnostic. A willingness to learn and experiment with new tech is much more important than hands-on experience with our current stack.

What you'll do:

  • Design, build, extend, and support a highly available and scalable infrastructure
  • Be involved in all phases of development, from ideation to celebration of successful launches
  • Ship code 2x/week 
  • Provide leadership and critical input on the design of our back-end technologies
  • Participate in daily stand-ups, software design sessions, and code reviews

What you'll bring:

  • Hands-on experience building and shipping software and web applications
  • Curiosity about new technologies and a desire to always use the best tools for the job
  • Belief in thorough unit test coverage
  • Desire to build quality products and tools that people can actually use
  • A successful track record of building and deploying high-quality consumer-facing products
It's a phenomenal time to join us --  we're still small but growing fast, with offices in Boston and Washington D.C. (This position is based in Boston.) 

Notarize is committed to building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and everyone is encouraged to apply. We'd love to hear from you.

About Notarize

At Notarize, our mission is to help people execute the most important transactions of their lives and to make legal notarization more convenient, secure, and verifiable. Notarize is the first notary public platform allowing any person or business to get their documents legally notarized online. In 2011, the Commonwealth of Virginia became the first state to allow appropriately certified Virginia notaries to serve customers online. And, these notaries were given the explicit authority to serve Americans no matter where they're located. These online notarizations are accepted across the country due to the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the United States Constitution and state laws that specifically address and accept out of state notarizations. Notarize leverages these and other laws to offer people and businesses the ability to legally notarize documents online, from anywhere. 1,000,000,000+ Documents are notarized in the U.S. each year. While notarization is a painful process for individuals, it’s excruciating for businesses that must collect notarized documents to operate. Imagine the pain you experience when getting something notarized - now imagine managing that pain and inconvenience across thousands of your customers. With Notarize for Business, organizations that rely upon notarized documents can leverage the Notarize platform to collect documents from their customers. With Notarize for Developers, they can integrate Notarize directly into their systems to automate and digitize what have always been frustrating, offline processes. And for the first time ever, with Notarize for Mortgage, lenders and title companies can leverage the Notarize Platform to close loans entirely online. The result: saved time and money; reduced fraud; a better customer experience; improved efficiency and convenience. In today’s tech-enabled economy, we are working to bring legal notarization into the modern era to solve some of industry's most frustrating business processes.
