About lex.be

Our passionate team of startup serial entrepreneurs (Erik, Toon, Eric and Chris) created lex.be, a new innovative legal search platform based in Brussels. Lex.be aims to disrupt the traditional legal industry with new tools to enhance transparency, provide better insights and increase efficiency of the legal profession, while making a positive impact on society. Lex.be enables companies, citizens and legal pros to easily find relevant info to gain legal insights.

Grow with us

To support our growth (outside Belgium too), we are actively hiring full-stack developers to extend our platform and PHP web developers to focus on our UX.

You will have a central role in ensuring that our on-line platform and services offer a high quality front-end technical implementation with an optimal user experience.

“Company culture” is not a yogurt flavour in our canteen

Our company culture is based on values like respect and working together (no “window dressed” collaboration) and care about team member’s flexibility and freedom.

As open data enthusiasts we foster an open and transparent company culture aiming to help us achieve excellence while maximising your job satisfaction.

Tools

We put great tools at your disposal and love to use PHPStorm as IDE (or IntelliJ). We typically share our thoughts, questions and code on Jira, Bitbucket and Slack. You shouldn't be afraid to touch a bit of elastic.co (Elasticsearch), Newrelic, Sensio labs Insight, APIs...
