What drew you to a career at Cyara originally and how has the company changed since?
I didn’t know anything about Cyara, a recruiter messaged me via LinkedIn. I didn’t even know CX was a thing back then! The company has accelerated so quickly and the software is amazing!
What does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?
Starts with a daily stand-up with the team and check in to make sure everyone is set up for the day. Log into the PM portal and check what tasks are priority for the day and start working on these. Currently working on a variety of projects including transactional, Fast Start Packages and a long-term 12+ month project with a customer who has purchased the entire Cyara portfolio.
How do you find a balance between work and family life at Cyara?
Really easy, the company promotes this work/life balance. I get to walk the dog or do a quick workout during my working day which was unheard of in my previous role.
