CS Disco Inc. is looking for an executive assistant and chief of staff to support our founder and CEO.

The role will be structured as an 18-month rotation with the option to either continue in the role after the rotation ends or transfer into a position of operational responsibility elsewhere in the company, depending on the candidate’s capabilities and interests.

About the Company

DISCO is the world’s leading legal technology company.

Our offerings help great lawyers improve legal outcomes for their clients. Our goal is to automate away all the parts of the practice of law that don’t require human legal judgment, so that great lawyers can focus on doing what it is they went to law school to do. Our technology is used by corporate legal departments in every major vertical, from financial services, to pharmaceuticals, to aerospace, to technology, and by most leading law firms in the United States.

DISCO was founded in 2013 and is one of the fastest-growing enterprise startups in the United States. We have offices in Austin and London and a sales and services presence in most major U.S. cities. We have more than doubled in size each year since founding and have raised money from leading venture capitalists, including LiveOak Venture Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, and the Stephens Group. We expect to continue on our trajectory of hyper-growth in 2019 and 2020, including opening offices in Asia, Europe, and Latin America to better serve our multinational clients.
