Kivu Consulting, a boutique computer forensics and investigations firm headquartered in San Francisco seeks an electronic discovery/computer forensics analyst. More details of the firm can be found at www . kivuconsulting . com.

Our team of experts encounters a wide range of matters including:

    • focused e-discovery consulting, collection and processing;
    • investigating and testifying on theft of trade secret cases (often with Federal/ State law enforcement involvement);
    • workplace and employment issues;
    • advising attorneys on responding to FTC/ DOJ investigations;
    • investigating network breaches/ unauthorized access of data.

We’re looking for someone with:

    • a love of all things tech
    • in-depth e-discovery and computer forensic experience (or the desire to acquire that experience)
    • an understanding of why law firms and corporations hire boutique firms rather than the Big 4 behemoths
    • the entrepreneurial instinct
    • a sense of humor and ability to handle difficult people
    • a desire to be judged by your work rather than a glossy brochure

The right candidate will be obsessed with accuracy but still able to get relevant results to clients ahead of schedule; be able to triage multiple cases; function in a highly confidential environment; survive without an administrative assistant; and able to work in a team or on their own. While highly technical, the position also requires an understanding of what makes people tick.

The position requires lab work at our downtown San Francisco office, on-site investigations at clients’ premises throughout the West Coast, and potential travel in the US/ overseas.


    1. Strong working knowledge of several of the following e-discovery tools: Nuix, LAW PreDiscovery, eCapture, Discovery Cracker, Concordance, Summation, RingTail, Relativity, iConect, Trident, Aid4Mail, and dtSearch.
    2. Strong working knowledge of data collection tools such as FTK Imager, Robocopy, Helix, and Evidence Mover.
    3. Working knowledge of forensics tools such as Encase, FTK, and Sleuthkit.
    4. Solid understanding of Windows operating systems, Windows applications, and common PC hardware.
    5. Understanding of Macintosh operating systems, Macintosh applications, general network architecture, and common server hardware.
    6. At least 2 years of experience in electronic discovery and/or, computer forensics.
    7. Working knowledge of current electronic discovery, data collection, storage, and chain of custody best practices.
    8. Excellent reporting skills (both written and verbal).

The following, while not required, would be strong bonuses:

    1. Prior experience working in a litigation support practice (e.g., internal corporate, law firm, e-discovery vendor) or preparing declarations or evidence for litigation.
    2. Knowledge of non-Windows/Macintosh operating systems (e.g., Linux) and email systems.
    3. Prior training/working knowledge of Paraben email examination tools.
    4. Prior training/working knowledge of cell phone/ PDA forensic tools (e.g. Paraben Device Seizure, Guidance Neutrino, BitPim, Cellebrite).
    5. Prior training/ working knowledge of Mac forensic tools.
    6. Industry qualifications such as CISSP, EnCE, ACE, CFE, MCSE, or CCE.
    7. Knowledge of open-source collection, file repair, and analysis tools.
    8. Experience with scripting (e.g. Perl, Enscript, Bash, and/or PowerShell) and/ or coding.
    9. Experience working in a data-regulated industry (e.g. HIPAA, breach notification laws, PCI, SOX).

The position is full-time. Salary is commensurate with experience. Training (both in-house and at nationally recognized institutions) is provided together with a full range of benefits and an employee profit sharing scheme.

Please email a resume and detailed cover letter (outlining how you fit the above requirements) to info (at) kivuconsulting . com.

NOTE: applications without a detailed cover letter will not be considered.
