Who We Are

DISCO is a recognized leader in legal technology — and we’re just getting started. 

Founded in 2012, DISCO’s mission is to create great technology to modernize the practice of law. Our solutions apply artificial intelligence and cloud computing to help lawyers and legal teams improve legal outcomes for their clients. Corporate legal departments, law firms, and government agencies around the world use DISCO as their ediscovery solution for compliance, disputes, and investigations. 

Annual company revenues have more than doubled every year since our founding. We have raised more than $135 million in venture capital, more than any other enterprise legal tech company. We are using this investment to accelerate growth in the $12.5 billion ediscovery market — and to expand our platform beyond ediscovery, applying our unique combination of world-class engineering and deep legal expertise to build products that will transform other areas of legal practice. We opened our London office in 2018 and have plans to further expand our presence outside the United States.

Are you ready to revolutionize the practice of law? Join us!

More about us:

  • Our objective is to own the legal tech market and become the leader in legal tech as Salesforce has done in the sales technology space. 
  • Our fundamental mission includes building a unified technology platform for the practice of law, composed of multiple products released over the next 10 years. 
  • DISCO is automating the parts of the practice that can be automated so that great lawyers can focus on tasks that really do require human legal judgment.
  • To date, we have substantially disrupted the legal tech market with a lawyer-inspired consumer-grade interface and a cloud-enabled technology platform that offers unprecedented performance and cost savings. 
  • DISCO has raised $135 million, more than any other enterprise legal tech company. This investment reflects the market’s consolidation behind DISCO as the leading cloud eDiscovery platform and the growing customer consensus that cloud eDiscovery will replace legacy eDiscovery services vendors and software providers. 
EEO Commitment

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

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.


Manager, Sales Development

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I put real effort into staying close to my team. When I joined DISCO, I scheduled meetings with each team member and I meet with each new hire class. They know I have an open door policy and will support their growth at DISCO. I do weekly standups to share recognition and updates, as well as hold quarterly focus groups to gauge how we are doing.


VP, Lead Generation and Inside Sales

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our Product Delivery team is made up of people who are very smart and passionate about their craft, whether it's software engineering, product management, or design.
