Matterhorn is a startup out of the University of Michigan Law School and based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We are transforming how people interact with the justice system. With our software-as-a-service platform, 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.

Keep an eye on us! We will continue to grow our team of:

  • dedicated customer success professionals,
  • passionate sales problem-solvers,
  • clever marketers with heart,
  • empathetic product visionaries and UX designers, and
  • innovative software developers

Our current open position is for a sales representative.
