Here at Kybotech, we’re always on the lookout for new talent – for people and personalities that gel with our company ideals and are hungry for success. So to understand what life at Kybotech is like, we think there’s no better way than to talk to some of the real people who work there.

Check out their answers below to see if Kybotech is the right fit for you!

Hi Alice, so which brand do you (primarily) work on?

Mainly on BillyOh.

And what’s your role at Kybotech?

So I’m technically considered a graduate copywriter as part of the marketing department. Although, in the last couple of months I’ve transitioned into more of a marketing executive role (basically, less wordy and more product-based!).

And what does your role involve?

So one day I will be naming incoming products, the next I’ll be trying to solve on-site hiccups – and some days will involve both.

Nice, and how long have you worked at Kybotech?

I’ve only been at Kybotech for coming up to 4 months, but when I look back at the variety of projects I’ve worked on it feels much longer!

Life at Kybotech

So can you explain what “a day in your life” looks like?

Recently, I’ve spent a lot of time making sure our newest products look great when they arrive on the BillyOh website. This is the kind of task where you don’t see the progress until they’re online and so it’s so satisfying when all your hard work is revealed!

What gets you out of bed and to work in the morning?

It’s a struggle, I can’t lie 😂. But, usually, a cup of tea, a good podcast, and knowing that “past Alice” from yesterday has made the first task of the day something simple. I like to start the day with a tick off the checklist.

How have you found working remotely during the past 1-2 years?

So, because I graduated during the pandemic, I’d never worked a full-time office job prior to home working. So, it’s all been very smooth for me. I think the most important thing in any work environment is communication and I’ve never found that a problem here! I know that if I have a question or want some direction, help is only a phone call or an email away.

How have you seen the company change/grow since you’ve been working here?

As I said, I’ve only worked here for 4 months. But, even in that time I’ve seen a change. In my final interview our COO, Chris, showed me Kybotech’s new acquisition, Bobbin. Since then, the Bobbin team have become part of our team, and the site is now one of the key focuses of our marketing plans.

Skills and Growth

And what useful skills have you learned whilst working here?

I’ve learnt so much! How to use different tools, lots about SEO, and even more about how a good business functions. And, I still learn new things every day. Literally, something new every single day – however small. It’s great!

Why did you decide to apply to Kybotech then Alice?

I think it was the focus on real responsibility. The application process for Kybotech was very explicit that the work would be challenging but rewarding, and I really valued that. I was sure that it was a company that would keep me learning and growing, and it has been!

Any advice for potential candidates?

Don’t worry about what you know and don’t know right now. When I first came to Kybotech, most of the programmes and terms that were being thrown around sounded like another language. So long as you show that you’re ready to work hard and learn, you’ll be a perfect fit for our team!
