What drew you to a career at Cyara originally and how has the company changed since?
I was drawn to Cyara originally because it has the best reviews on sites such as LinkedIn and Glassdoor. It looked like a place that had the greatest culture and truly cared about their employees. I’m glad to say that has not changed since I joined!
What does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?
I am currently working a number of projects. Upgrades, load tests, migrations… the whole gambit. My typical day starts with coffee while I review emails from the previous evening, and then follow up on project statuses and action items that are due or coming due. Various status meetings with clients are throughout the day, and in between meetings I usually follow up on recent emails or slack messages.
Tell us about your work life harmony at Cyara.
My work life harmony is great. I love that my commute is just walking up the stairs to the office, as opposed to spending hours each day in traffic. I am also able to set aside time during the day for a quick workout to help me remain focused.
