kCura – Why Work For Us?




undefinedWe have a Midwestern, grassroots, friendly vibe, and we’re all business and technology geeks who really love what we do. We look for new team members who always put our users first, have a passion for building great solutions, love to work hard and play hard, and appreciate a challenge. We in turn provide them with a breadth of internal education programs, the latest technology, and a clear path to success.


Purchased by our founders in kCura’s early days, the green couch in our reception area says it all. Over the years, it has served as a break room, a think tank, and even an intern’s desk. Yet, its most important function remains—a reminder to be humble and stay hungry.

We provide a complete benefits package that reflects a company-wide commitment to supporting our employees’ professional growth and career development. Our benefits package helps our team stay healthy, achieve their goals, and do their jobs well.

Our community outreach program works to ensure that youth in our community—especially those with limited resources—have access to the technology, equipment, and training they need to be successful in today’s work environment.

We achieve this through four main avenues: Wired to Learn Grant, Geek Grant, our volunteer program, and community partnerships.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at kCura full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Excellent product (Relativity) with a good market share
    - Smooth and well-organized onboarding process
    - RCA Exam is good preparation for new employees
    - Quirky office with many nooks and crannies to explore
    - Talented and friendly co-workers
    - Great benefits
    - Free fruit
    - Energetic and inspiring CEO (Andrew Sieja)
    - Standing desks with powerful PCs.

    A previous review mentioned legacy software tools (like VB). While older parts of the codebase were written in VB, newer parts use C#, C++, Java, Python, and more. Also, the development org leverages open-source software heavily. It's not just a Microsoft shop.

    Cons

    - The open floor plan can be distracting. I wish it had more quiet and privacy.
    - The software development environment takes time to get up and running

    Advice to Management

    You're doing the right thing. Keep it up.
