IT'S BEEN A BIG MONTH FOR CIRRUS IDENTITY AND WE'VE GOT SOME EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE WITH YOU!
OUR TEAM IS GROWING
The Cirrus Identity team is growing to support our expanding customer base. Two new full-time engineers have joined the Cirrus team: Rob Urquhart, who served as the lead identity architect at Simon Fraser University for over 20 years, will be working on technical design and development as a Principal Identity Engineer. Patrick Radtke, who worked on the Stanford University identity management team for four years and spent the last year working on SAML integrations for SaaS at Jive Software, will also serve as a Principal Identity Engineer, enhancing existing and developing new services.
We've also brought on Cynthia Kellogg and Jen Ly. Cynthia will be leading Cirrus' marketing, sales, and business development efforts while Jen is focused on product development and launching our new support center. Jen comes to us with over 17 years experience working in higher education and Cynthia has spent the last 5 years launching and growing tech startups and small businesses. We are THRILLED to be surrounded by such talent.
