Cyrus was one of Betterment's first customers before becoming one of its first employees. Excited about Betterment's product and its many professional possibilities, he got his foot in the door as a summer intern before coming in full-time. Cyrus started on a small, ambitious team of innovative entrepreneurs and continuously thrived in Betterment's explorative teach and learn culture as it skyrocketed to success year after year.
To help team members achieve personal goals, Cyrus discusses, designs, and reviews code collaboratively and prepares project work plans that balance teamwork and advance individual growth. He builds strong partnerships with architectural leaders and communicates with customers to conquer technical challenges and shape Betterment's future technology on the front line.
