22 Aug DISCO’s Technology, Culture, and Vision Attracts Top Ediscovery Talent
Houston, TX — Legal technology company CS Disco Inc. has built a reputation of unmatched technology, culture, and vision and is making a widespread impact on the legal market. Announced today, DISCO has increased its workforce in 2017 by 78%, attracting top talent from Thomson Reuters, Veritas Technologies, Xerox Consulting, Recommind by OpenText, and other big businesses in ediscovery. “DISCO combines world-class engineering with a deep love and respect for the law to deliver the best legal technology possible. It is no mystery to us why the best and brightest talent in the industry are seeking us out,” said Kiwi Camara, founder and CEO of DISCO.
At DISCO, creative thinking is not just a buzzword – it’s a principle foundation of the company’s culture to not follow the status quo, but to push the limits of technological boundaries. For example, cross-functional teams of talented engineers, project managers, professional services, and legal practitioners meet weekly to review and vet new features to make sure they work intuitively, as a legal professional would expect. Professional Services Director Charles Campbell stated, “I was drawn to DISCO’s deep litigation roots which compels us to focus on enhancing the practice of law instead of just solving the problems that modern discovery creates. This unique insight, coupled with completely distributed cloud-based architecture, positions us as the obvious leader in the rapidly changing landscape of legal software.”
On the heels of an impressive Q2 2017, the company’s momentum has attracted gold-star talent from both the technology and legal domains. “I am very excited to be here and to be a part of a fast-growing organization with market-leading technology,” stated Phil Guthrie, DISCO’s Southern Regional Sales Director. Recent sales and marketing management acquisitions include Christopher Jensen, former President and Founding Partner of TrustPoint International, Phil Guthrie, former Sales Director at Recommind, Brandon D’Agostino, former National Manager at Veritas Technologies, and Keith Schrodt, former Marketing Director at Thomson Reuters. “DISCO offers the most advanced native-cloud ediscovery technology in the industry hands-down. With its explosive business growth, financial stability, cutting-edge technology, and unique culture that blends the brightest legal and engineering minds, it’s no wonder DISCO is attracting the industry’s most sought-after talent,” said Keith Schrodt.
Along with the addition of new marketing and sales leadership, several industry veterans joined DISCO’s Professional Services department in 2017. With legal talent from Perkins Coie, Norton Rose Fulbright US, White & Case, DTI, Hudson Legal, Morae Global, and UnitedLex, DISCO’s Professional Services team has provided in-house consultation to dozens of the world’s largest corporations on some of the most visible litigations and investigations of our time. “What initially attracted me to DISCO was the platform itself,” said Barbara Burke, Director of Client Enablement at DISCO. “After 16 years in the industry watching ediscovery tools come and go, I finally saw the solution that could deliver on “technology’s” promise of improving my workflow to allow me to assist my clients better. Once I became a part of DISCO, I saw first-hand the culture that drives the product. At DISCO everyone is invited to bring their knowledge and experience to the table and use it to improve the direction of our platform. The goal is always the same, not only to solve the problem at hand, but to improve the process in such a way as to solve the problems our clients didn’t even know they had.”
DISCO’s data services team also rounded out its leadership team with the addition of Youssef Bittaf, former Associate Director of Operations at FRONTEO USA, and Christina Nava, former Director of Technical Support for CSI Software. “I decided to join DISCO because I believe it’s a true innovator in the discovery market,” said Youssef Bittaf, Director of Data Operations for DISCO. “As someone who has been in the ediscovery business for over 12 years running data operations, hosting, and support, I have used many tools throughout my career to process data and I always felt limited by the physical computing resources. DISCO is a pure cloud platform built on Amazon Web Services which provides a robust, fast, and highly scalable solution. We can scale our processing resources on demand in a matter of minutes using AWS, allowing my team to process terabytes of data on a daily basis.”
