Careers

Court Innovations is a software-as-a-service startup spun out of the University of Michigan Law School. Based in Ann Arbor, Mich., we are transforming how people interact with the justice system. With our software-as-a-service platform, Matterhorn, people can go to court without actually physically going to court. In other words, that traffic ticket you got at that out-of-state football game? Now you can contest it without leaving your couch.

Our mission is to expand access to justice, and we’re expanding our offerings apace. Not everyone can afford to take a day off of work to fight a traffic ticket. Or maybe they are afraid to, or maybe they can’t get there. Everyone has the right to be heard, no matter who they are. Being heard by the justice ecosystem is everyone’s right. We’ve added to our platform’s offerings to include many other case types, court services, and disputes, and we’re looking for new team members to join us on the journey!

About us
We’re optimistic, fun, tough group of problem-solvers and creative thinkers who love our work because it’s challenging, groundbreaking, and above all else – because what we’re doing really matters. We’re highly collaborative small, hard-working team group, and we’re all passionate about what we do. We know how to buckle down and how to let loose, and we believe it’s all of our jobs not only to make the business successful, but to make each other successful.
