Where You’ll Go From Here

  • Kyruuvians in the Program Manager role can move in a more linear career path on the program management team. The next step is Senior Program Manager and this individual could explore this role within program management on the Product Development team or Delivery team.
  • Kyruus also loves to see an internal transfer. If a linear career path is not what you’re looking for, you can work with your manager and HR to explore lateral moves to other parts of the organization as you continue to grow with us.

An Insider's view of Kyruus

What's something quirky about your company?

We Kyruuvians add k’s and “:u”s to commonly used words, tools, APIs, pretty much anything that contributes to our own growing lingo. For example, we have an employee recognition program that’s called Ku:udos, Kamunda is Kyruus API wrapper for Camunda (a workflow engine), Downloadu:ur is a tool to deliver reports to clients, and you get the idea!


Vice President, Engineering

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Scaling our match capabilities with new sources of data, algorithms and presenting it simply are current areas of focus.
