PLEASE READ: This is an in-office role. No hybrid or remote options. Compensation listed below. Must have relevant HR experience.

Why Case Status:

We’re one of the fastest-growing, venture-backed tech startups based out of beautiful Charleston, SC. With a total market opportunity of almost $9B, we’ve been making big waves in the legal industry by enabling our customers to provide their clients real-time case status communications, proprietary progress tracking, smart scheduling, custom legal NPS system and more. We are completely transforming how law firms interact with their clients through a combination of cutting-edge software, AI technology, innovative solutions and a bunch of really “rad” people.

What do we mean by “rad”? You must not be from the 80s! Here’s what it means to be RAD at Case Status:

Radically Disruptive - We make a point to go above and beyond in everything we do. Through creativity, diligence and clear expectations, we proactively challenge the status quo, embrace failure, and adapt when necessary for the greater good of the mission.

Actively Curious - Making an impact on our customers and their clients’ matters deeply to us. We value humility and solve for others first. When we are faced with challenges, we desire to delight our customers at every chance. We are curious in our approach, humble in our execution, and confident in our vision.

Dedicated to our Team - Being fully committed means being dependable, taking responsibility for challenges, sharing accolades widely, and checking our egos at the door. We value a strong culture and contribute to its success by taking care of each other; growing professionally, and celebrating our accomplishments.

We’re not just on a mission to transform the legal industry (or bring the word “rad” back to the mainstream, that’s just a bonus). We’re on a mission to help every legal firm profoundly improve their client experience. We want to help every client have a 5 star experience with their attorney. Because every customer is important to us, and so every client matters.
