Hey Portland Rubyists!
We at Innovation Law Lab, are hiring a new engineer for our team. We are a fierce group of lawyers, program coordinators, and software engineers devoted to migrant justice. We fight to get people out of detention, wage battles in court against horrendous immigration policy, and we create programs and technology to support our core mission. Most recently we developed an application and community-based program to distribute over $75 million in state funding for emergency pandemic relief.
We have been deeply involved in some of the most critical immigration litigation of the past decade. East Bay Sanctuary Covenant v. Trump; Innovation Law Lab v. McAleenan; etc. From fighting remain in Mexico to various asylum bans, Innovation Law Lab has been at the front lines of these court battles to defend the right to asylum. No human is illegal and colonialist borders are not legitimate.
We manage a plethora of critical systems to provide safe access to asylum documents, help legal observers document and analyze immigration court proceedings, automate tasks for lawyers and community groups, and we collaborate with a huge network of partners across the country.
Here is our current job posting:
In short we're looking for an candidate with deep knowledge of Ruby, relational databases, frameworks like Rails and Sinatra, etc. We are seeking someone with extensive engineering exerience capable of leading projects and helping us strengthen our core technology.
Our engineering team is small but central to our work; also we are unionized! (https://twitter.com/LawLabUnited?s=20)

So looking forward to hearing from y'all and finding a new member for our incredible team!
