An Insider's view of Relativity

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.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We have a semi-annual Hackathon where our engineers get to work on their own feature ideas for 3 days. The ideas that emerge have blown our minds and eventually become part of the product. In addition to design sessions that each team has, we also regularly have Relativity talks. These talks are a great way for engineers to share their experience.

Cindy

Manager, Software Engineering

What are some social events your company does?

Our annual user conference, Relativity Fest, is such a tremendous opportunity to get one on one face time with our partners. Fest draws 2,000 platform users and practitioners from all different facets of the industry and being able to connect with them and hear their stories is extremely powerful.
