About Disco

Disco is the all-in-one platform that enables modern learning academies and organizations to build, market and scale social learning empires. Unlike learning with pre-recorded videos, Disco enables live learning experiences that leverage synchronous video and community to bring learners together virtually in a social environment.

We’re 100% creator aligned, providing creators with a platform for entrepreneurship while maintaining ownership of their brand, audience, data, and revenue. Learning communities like OnDeck, Dribbble, Makerpad cultural icon Margaret Atwood, and top management thinker, Roger Martin, use Disco to bring global, collaborative, live learning experiences to life.

Disco is founded by mission-driven entrepreneurs and life-long learners, Candice Faktor (Wattpad) and Chris Sukornyk (Chango) who are committed to supporting creators in finding sustainable ways to monetize their passion and purpose. We're backed by visionary investors including GSV and Quiet Capital, and top angels from Shopify, Lambda School, Indiegogo, and CAA.

Disco is a fully remote and globally distributed team, and right now we have team members in Toronto, San Francisco, and Costa Rica. We hire for character, passion, curiosity, and drive. We value inclusivity and diversity and are looking for the brightest and most passionate people that are aligned with our values to join us on our mission.
