We’re making careers possible, and that means equipping every Discovian with the one-to-one guidance, support, skills and career options to contribute to a variety of projects, teams, and departments. We’re bringing this vision to life, and launching a new program designed to grow the top early career professionals into our future leaders and executives.
If you’re driven to make an impact, motivated to continually learn and grow, and are known for your entrepreneurial spirit, then DISCO is the right place for you! Join the inaugural class of the Emerging Leader Rotation Program as a DISCO Associate and launch your career at a high-growth company whose mission is to use technology to strengthen the rule of law.
As a DISCO Associate, you’ll quickly build and apply business, legal, leadership and technical expertise to real world problems and projects. Working alongside top legal minds, entrepreneurs, and technologists, you’ll make a meaningful impact while deepening your skills with one-to-one attention from our leaders and coaches. DISCO’s ELRP is a launchpad for emerging leaders in technology.
In ELRP, you will:

- Define and pursue your goals with 1×1 career coaching
- Learn from and work directly with executives and leaders
Make a meaningful impact.
Law affects everyone, from the largest multinational corporations to local mom-and-pop businesses, from the most powerful national governments to the smallest towns and from major civic organizations to individual citizens. However, the legal industry has lagged behind other industries in digitization and cloud technology adoption. The opportunity to innovate through legal technology can be quantified not only in billions of dollars, but in life-changing experiences for attorneys, freed from mundane tasks and able to fully do what they went to law school for.
As the impact of law on the business world grows, joining DISCO is an opportunity to do meaningful work with an enormous positive impact on society. We believe that great achievements come from aiming great people at big problems; and as “Discovians,” you will be the principal driver of our success. Our commitment to creating an environment where all people feel welcome and connected regardless of their backgrounds, along with our MAGIC culture and values (Meaningful Impact, All-in, Grit and Grace, Innovation and Craft) shape the way we treat each other, serve our customers, and give back to our community.
What You’ll Do
- Acceptance into the program is a rigorous two-way process designed to attract and retain top talent with the best likelihood of long-term success at DISCO.
- Overview: The ELRP is a career journey with structured learning, rotational work experiences, a capstone project, and ongoing learning and career development. At the end of the program, Associates have completed an accelerated path to graduate into a ‘lead’ role in either a thought leader or people management career path.
- Structured learning: Associates begin their journey in DISCO University, where business leaders and professors equip them with the DISCO and industry-specific business, legal, leadership and technical expertise they need to thrive in their rotations. As an associate during downtime, you will get to know Austin and your colleagues through teambuilding and social events.
- Rotational work experiences: Associates complete rotations to learn the basics of our business, and work with a career coach to match their strengths and interests to a permanent role. Associates may choose to complete up to three rotations. Throughout their rotations, associates participate in continuous leadership and professional development to prepare them to step into a ‘lead’ role upon program graduation.
- Ongoing learning and career development: Associates receive support for their learning and careers through a variety of assessments, one-to-one coaching, project sponsors, and capable, trained people managers.
- Project work: All associates participate in a real-world capstone project focused on addressing a critical issue or opportunity. Teams present their solutions to the CEO and executive team, and receive feedback with the possibility of budget and time to implement their ideas.
