An Insider's view of DISCO

What are some social events your company does?

I'm part of an employee group called the DISCO Ambassadors. We represent employees’ voices, interests, and opinions and help them connect, especially as we are growing quickly. We have happy hours, executive Q&As, yoga classes, sports teams, and are working on more to encourage cross-functional collaboration and drive our company culture.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success happens through our shared core values in our team: Winning Together, Continuous Improvement, and Always Positive. We display these values every day and during team meetings, we give examples of how we are living them out. “Always positive” resonates the most as it’s a constant reminder to find even the smallest positive in your day.

Binnie

Manager, Sales Development

DISCO enables me to split my energy between work and other aspects of my life that are important. Our flexible PTO truly relieves the stress of taking time off to take care of our personal lives.
