Kyria Careers: Show Us That You Can Make It Simple

Kyria Careers: Show Us That You Can Make It Simple

This blog post was inspired by an internal conversation in the Kyria office this past week. A recently arrived staff member asked Howard Perkins, our Managing Director, if Kyria is openly looking to recruit software developers on an ongoing basis. Howard replied that if a candidate can reach the required level set by Kyria, he will make desk space available for them. But this came with a catch; the technical bar set by Kyria is extremely high. Kyria is an ambitious, ever growing company. And as a result of this ambition, we're always looking to take on new staff who will add to the already high standard of technical excellence within the company.

This ambition drives Kyria forward and is paired with our commitment to Integrity, Commitment and Quality. Along with these three core values, we also have the ongoing pursuit to bring simplicity to every area of our work. However, this perhaps doesn't tell the full story about who we are, and who we aim to be. Kyria aims to only hire the best people, both on a technical and human level. We believe that by setting the highest possible standards for ourselves, we will deliver the highest possible level of results for our customers. And so far this approach has worked well. So well in fact that we're having an office move in the near future to a bigger office with increased desk spaces. One of the great strengths of Kyria is the atmosphere and comradery in the office. Be it the mid-morning bacon runs, or the flying of the various quadcopters we have built over the past few months, there is a sense of togetherness that drives Kyria.

We believe in doing right by our employees, as well as by our customers. This becomes obvious early on to every new Kyria employee, and I can personally attest to this. The willingness and ability to share knowledge and work together on projects and tasks makes the Kyria office an extremely interesting and rewarding place to work. So, what exactly are we looking for when we hire new software developers? Well as you can tell, we want people who are of a high technical level, and who can show us not only their knowledge of a particular software system, but also that they can quickly understand and master new systems. Once they have proven they are technically excellent, they must also show us that they fit in with our core values of Integrity, Commitment and Quality. We believe in these things for a reason, and we only hire people who share these core values.

They must also have one other key quality; they must be able to Make It Simple. What does that mean? Well that's a fair question. We believe that simplicity doesn't come easy, that it takes hard work and excellence to achieve. As the old saying goes "Any fool can make something complicated. It takes a genius to make it simple."And that really is the centre of our ongoing employee search. Simplicity is a beautiful and powerful thing, it produces quality products and services and keeps customers coming back year after year. Show us that you can make it simple.

So if you think you're the right fit for us, if you can reach our high technical standards, if you share our core values, and can show us that you have what it takes to Make It Simple, then we'll always have room for you at Kyria.
