DISCO is a legal tech software company. Our objective is to own the legal tech market and become the leader in legal as Salesforce has done in the sales technology space. Given the massive growth of data over the last 20 years, poorly built legal technology products have severely decreased lawyers' ability to practice the law.  

Our fundamental mission includes building a unified technology platform for the practice of law, composed of 7+ products released over the next 10 years. Great technology can solve problems of scale in data, in laws, and in business operations that have distracted lawyers from doing what they went to law school to do. DISCO is fixing the law by 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. Thoughtful product planning and product design are core tenets in our “product first” business strategy and culture. 

Your Impact

Documents are a central concept of the law and in legal tech. Storing, retrieving, organizing, indexing, and searching terabytes of documents for our customers is a major portion of the technical foundation for our business. The volume and complexity of those activities, as well as the amount of data is always increasing. We are developing the next level of capabilities and abstractions to automate the scale of this subsystem. Doing so will have a massive impact on our ability to serve customers, deliver features, and scale our platform

  • Define infrastructure automation strategy for highly scalable and crazy performant search systems
  • Identify capabilities and abstractions needed  to satisfy required performance and scalability targets through automated, zero-downtime data and infrastructure management.
  • Build and maintain roadmap and architecture for realizing those abstractions and capabilities.
  • Lead software and systems development for that roadmap.
  • Bring in, define, institute best practices for control plane automation.
  • Contribute leadership, understanding and lessons learned to the greater DISCO platform in these areas.
  • Recruit, hire and mentor other architects and engineers to accomplish the above.
