FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I get in touch?

Please apply & we’ll be in touch! If your resume and background appear like a good match, we will reach out for an initial phone screen.

Where is Cypris located?

Cypris has offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Boulder. However, we offer the ability to work 100% remotely.

We believe that releasing ourselves from sourcing talent from one physical boundary opens the talent pool for us to find the very best & most ambitious team members no matter where they are.

What are Cypris’ future hiring plans?

We’re always looking for the best talent across departments. We will regularly post new job opportunities on the Cypris Careers page, Wellfound, or LinkedIn. 

How does Cypris make money?

We sell annual access to our dashboard to R&D, innovation & IP teams looking to better understand the innovation landscape. We also build custom reports for objective-oriented projects. Both can be included in one package.

What does the interview process look like?

The process depends on the role. For all positions, we’ll start with an introduction call with our Talent team. 

From there, the interview process will vary by role. We typically do a longer call with one of our team members who can appropriately vet your skills & “speak your language” – on the engineering side, this might mean some technical questions, while on the sales side, we’ll ask you to build a quick presentation about yourself.

Finally, we’ll check over a few references. If you’re near one of our offices, we may give you the opportunity to meet in person.
