Disco helps creators build live virtual learning experiences that are social and engaging. We offer creators an all-in-one, revenue generating platform to scale a learning empire - from workshops to cohort based courses to micro-schools. 100% creator aligned, like Shopify, creators own their brand, revenue and community working with us.

Founded by mission driven, life-long learners and tech entrepreneurs, Candice Faktor (Wattpad) and Chris Sukornyk (Chango) want to support creators in finding sustainable ways to monetize their passion and purpose. Backed by SV and global investors including GSV (Masterclass, Coursera), and angels from Shopify, Lambda School, indiegogo, CAA and Wattpad, our vision for learning leaves the industrial age behind and looks to a world of lifelong learning, that's live, led by creators we trust and accessible from anywhere.

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 in the world to join us on our mission.

We believe that doing so, will unlock a lifetime of learning opportunities for people regardless of their location and give them the communities and experiences they need to grow and build skills for the 21st century.
