Litigation Support Specialist 2 (California preferred, PST required)

Full-Time, Remote / Salary, Exempt / Includes Benefits, PTO, Flexible Schedule, Equity

Steno is growing! We’re looking for a Litigation Support Specialist 2 to join our winning team, which is revolutionizing the court reporting industry every single day. We’re a diverse team from all over the country (and beyond) and we’re crazy about redefining the boundaries of an outdated industry.

Our Litigation Support Specialists are the driving force behind our Litigation Support team, ensuring client orders are fulfilled per service agreements and supporting the rollout of new Steno product offerings across court filings, service of process, and document retrieval. As a Litigation Support Specialist 2, you’ll review incoming customer requests for accuracy, answer customer questions, input orders into our database, dispatch assignments to the appropriate vendors, and communicate status updates throughout the lifecycle of client orders.

Who are you?

We’re looking for a highly organized individual who thrives in a busy, fast-paced environment--we know you’ve heard this before, but we’re not kidding. We’re growing--fast--so we’re looking for folks who are excited to match pace and help us expand our litigation support services offerings. If you are ready to hit the ground running and want to have a direct impact on the services we provide to our clients, then this role is for you!

If a fast-paced environment that is equal parts challenging and rewarding doesn’t motivate you, then the operations team is probably not the right fit. But if you thrive in a forward-thinking environment where you can use your knowledge of the legal industry to help change the support services landscape (and don’t mind facing new challenges), then you may just find the home you are looking for here. Similarly, if you’re looking for a company that offers support, guidance, an abundance of killer giphys, and unlimited potential to grow into your best self, you can bet we’d love to have you too.
