We are Relativity. A market-leading, global tech company that equips legal professionals with a powerful platform to organize data, discover the truth, and act on it. The U.S. Department of Justice, 198 of top 200 U.S. law firms, and more than 70 Fortune 100 companies are among our customers who trust Relativity during litigation, internal investigations, and compliance projects.
 
Our SaaS product, RelativityOne, has become the fastest-growing product in the company's history and we have consistently been named a great workplace. As we grow, we continue to seek individuals that will bring their whole self to our team atmosphere.
 
Join us in the transformation of the legal industry and play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the practice of law and beyond.
Relativity is a flexible and extensible platform built for solving unstructured data problems. This could involve collecting a massive dataset of potentially hundreds of millions of documents and finding what specifically is relevant to the matter at hand.
 
This role is part of a team building a new application outside of e-discovery on top of the Relativity platform: Relativity Trace. Relativity Trace is used to prevent risk and litigation by proactively identifying potential malicious and illicit behavior.
 
The team is made up of a small group of experienced Relativity engineers who operate like a small startup within Relativity and are tasked with building something greenfield that could become a key driver in the growth of our product.
 
This will not be a standard role at Relativity.

You will make sure Relativity Trace continues to work on all latest versions of Relativity. Once we release, you will own all our internal environments ensuring it’s available to our customers.

You will understand all new functionality as it’s developed and how a customer should use it effectively.
You can build a great demo that highlights the power of new functionality that you’ve built
You can tell a story in Relativity with a clean workspace that is optimized to highlight the specific functionality we want to demo. You will work with marketing, sales and operations to create content effectively displaying the value from customer perspective.
 
You are a self-starter who is comfortable juggling many balls.
You will be responsible for many activities simultaneously. You proactively seek out opportunities to deliver differentiating value for the team and the product, because you care about what we are building. You won’t need to be closely managed and will own delivering your commitments.
 
You are the first line of support for our early adopters.
You will join the development team that loves working with customers. You will be frequently calling and emailing our early customers providing white glove service. You will own the resolution of tickets because you won’t let our customers fail. You will continue to expand automated test coverage with new findings to make sure we are covered going forward.
 
You are comfortable with uncertainty
We have a roadmap that is rapidly developing with feedback from our early adopters. You should be comfortable working in an environment of constant change and should also be able to work confidently with a certain level of ambiguity. If you need an answer to something, you’ll take the initiative to find an answer.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

On the Certification team, I develop exams and study content for our end users. To ensure that our exams are valid, I work with almost every team embracing their expertise and industry knowledge into the development process. It takes continuous interdepartmental collaboration to keep exam content accurate as the Relativity platform evolves.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As an Application Support Specialist, I have increased my technical knowledge in SQL database management, Network Administration, and Server Infrastructure. Prior to coming to Relativity, I had zero knowledge of e-Discovery, and now provide On-site training to our clients teaching them about the various e-Discovery tools Relativity has to offer.
