Job Description

Mitratech provides market-leading corporate legal automation software for over 120 Fortune 500 customers.  The product enables the legal departments of the country’s largest companies, like Exxon, GE, Apple, Google, and Home Depot, to manage their relationships, document sharing, and billing with external law firms and drive value across the organization. Mitratech has a 25 year history and is recognized by clients and independent industry analysts as the leading company in this space.


In October, Mitratech was acquired by Vista Equity Partners, a private equity firm with almost $6B in committed capital.  When combined, the Vista portfolio of companies makes up the ninth largest software company in the world. This means that when you join a growing organization like Mitratech, you have the benefit of working for a smaller company that is part of a much larger family, with over 12,000 employees throughout the 15 portfolio companies worldwide. You get the best of both worlds, with the flexibility and fast-pace growth of a small company like Mitratech, with the resources and best practices of a much larger organization in Vista.
