|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.
Were 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.
