Beyond the studio
Why work for Kyan?
We have a culture of sharing and we work in teams within a flat structure where every opinion is valued. We collaborate and build on our pooled experience, so knowledge is shared, not siloed.
The work is challenging (but fun), we work hard and we enjoy what we do. At Kyan, we always hire for fit and aptitude over qualifications and experience, so if you've got a reason for us to hire you, why not get in touch?
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby!
We ❤ technology
We are early adopters of Ruby and Rails, but that doesn't mean it's all we do. We also enjoy Elixir and React projects, and we're always keen to work with the latest tech.
Agile is in our DNA
We're not fans of weighty, technical specifications that no-one wants to read. We operate an agile Scrum methodology with teams working on 1-2 week sprints, focussing on one core element of a project at a time. The work is fast-paced and iterative and that’s the way we like it.
Your training, your way
We assign a personal development budget to every staff member for their use as they see fit. As a Kyan employee, keeping up-to-date is part of the job, so we encourage learning as part of daily work.
Don't make me think!
We are big on usability and UX, and believe that a website or application should not only be a thing of beauty, but work beautifully. Every project starts with a sketch of an idea, before being worked into reality and tested to be the best possible solution prior to development.
We like to play.
Kyan has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with plenty of break-out space for day-to-day socialising, or just to get away from your desk.
