DisputeSoft provides expert consulting services to law firms engaged in cutting-edge, high-profile software disputes. The types of problems we solve are unlike anything you would find at a typical technology company. Working at DisputeSoft will require you to support senior consultants, expert witnesses, and attorneys from the nation’s top law firms, who work on behalf of startups to Fortune 100 companies and government clients in a variety of high-stakes contract, fraud, and intellectual property disputes.
The software development intern is a problem solver whose work requires them to design creative software applications to support the work DisputeSoft performs for its clients, and internal business processes. Past intern projects have included planning and developing a tool for comparing the similarity of disputed programs, an online system that helps DisputeSoft manage its inventory of confidential items, a marketing analytics reporting system, and an application for measuring and analyzing software project delays.
Software development interns who demonstrate interest and aptitude may also be asked to assist with client work. In this role, the intern becomes a technological investigator whose work requires them to uncover factual information and provide analysis about the significance of that information. Such investigatory work varies based on the unique circumstances of each legal dispute on which DisputeSoft consults: one day you might write scripts in Python or Perl to determine whether a disputed software system takes advantage of modern programming paradigms; another day you might use an internal application to compare the similarity of two applications at issue in a copyright case; and yet another day you might analyze a forensic image of a hard drive.
Qualified candidates for the position will possess the following skills and qualifications:
- Currently enrolled in a college or university or recently graduated
- Understanding of object-oriented computing concepts
- Academic or professional experience with C, C++, C# or Java
- Academic or professional experience with SQL
- Demonstrated programming ability
- Strong technical problem-solving skills
- Ability to adapt quickly to new challenges
DisputeSoft employees enjoy a relaxed and inclusive office culture that allows for flexible hours, and provides ample opportunities for on the job learning. Few workplaces can offer the chance to be exposed to so many areas of the technology industry – whether you are interested in programming, computer architecture, project management, or intellectual property law, you’ll have the chance to learn more about it at DisputeSoft. DisputeSoft interns have been later hired full-time, or have gone on to work at other top-tier technology companies.
