Kyero’s purpose is to help people find their sunshine!
We live this through our values, which empower us to build our knowledge, challenge ourselves and grow with authenticity. We’re one team and together we go further.
The Business :
Market - 15 years’ successful online presence in the Spanish property market and many lessons learned in the process, enabling us to now build upon our offering in new territories, serving our multinational buyer audience.
Team - An international team of 28 (all fully remote) people, combining Marketing, Sales, Customer Services, Design, Development, Data, Finance & Admin. All of whom are truly passionate about the vision and purpose of the business.
Foundations - Visionary Founders with exceptional knowledge of their market, who have built a firm (and profitable) foundation for growth, and who promote a culture of trust and inclusion so that the team are empowered to "fail forward".
Potential – This has been a defining year for Kyero. Our response to the Covid crisis was to protect our team and control costs whilst rapidly evolving our proposition to test new commercial models, evolve the buyer experience and explore new ways of working. With a clear vision, strong leadership and expertise across the team, we’re more ambitious than ever and have the perfect recipe for continued growth!
