This position offers the opportunity to grow a portfolio of cutting-edge client projects, and the chance to fundamentally shape legal service delivery.
 
At Davis Wright Tremaine, you will find challenging assignments, opportunities for professional growth and community involvement, and a culture of inclusion. DWT fosters inclusiveness and authenticity. Regardless of position, everyone here has a voice and the support is unparalleled.

  • Assist in managing the team to deliver urgent deadline-driven work product
  • Create quality controls for the template drafting process
  • Rapidly deliver highly complex contract templates as an individual contributor
  • Troubleshoot and help triage issues reported by users
  • Provide template authoring training on document automation software to firm members and clients
  • Organically build the team as the program grows
  • Work with the Program Manager to develop, track, meet and report out revenue and cost objectives, MVE information to client and key performance indicators 

Join us if you have:

  • 3+ years of technology systems and project management experience
  • Client-focused orientation that balances customer deference with quality control
  • A passion for troubleshooting and reaching resolutions with technical issues
  • Ability to pivot easily between team projects and being an individual contributor
  • Ability to prioritize objectives and focus effort
  • Honest, energetic, and optimistic personality
  • Experience working with legal technology and/or within a large law firm preferred
  • Advanced knowledge of Microsoft Office applications - Word, Excel, PowerPoint
  • Experience with document automation software and eagerness to learn new tools
  • Experience with Thomson Reuters Contract Express, XpressDocs, or HotDocs a plus
  • Ability to occasionally work extended hours on deadline-driven projects
