What You Need to Know About Working at KaiNexus

Posted by Matt Paliulis

Mar 6, 2017 9:48:04 AM

Editor’s Note: For those of you who have anxiously been awaiting the news that KaiNexus is hiring (anyone? anyone?), I’m happy to announce that we’re looking for a front end web developer for our Dallas office! I’ve never actually been to the Dallas office (most of our team is in Austin, so we meet there), so I asked Matt Paliulis, our COO and Co-Founder, to tell us what it’s like to work there in the land of KaiNexus Developers. If you’re ready to apply, go here to learn more about this particular job - and if you need more convincing, read on!

 

Here at KaiNexus, we believe that each person in our company plays a critical role in the success of our company - and our customers. We’ve grown rapidly over the past couple of years, but we’re still a small team, making each person’s contributions critical.

When most people think of a tech startup, they envision a bunch of dudes in the break room wearing virtual reality headsets chugging Red Bull at 3 am. This stereotypical version of a tech startup exists somewhere, but that’s not us.

We have no Foosball table, we don’t drink energy drinks all day (well, unless you count good coffee and tea), and we don’t sit around playing video games and high-fiving. 

That’s not to say that working at KaiNexus isn’t awesome, though. KaiNexus people are passionate people who love coming to work each day; they love the challenge of solving difficult problems. They love being able to see their ideas come to life and help mold the future of our company and product. They love learning new things. A common answer to a ‘can you do….?' or 'have you done….?’ question, is 'Not yet.’

Continuous Quality Improvement with Technology

Posted by Matt Paliulis

Matt PaliulisRecently, I was asked to write up a quick piece on my passion for continuous quality improvement and why I co-founded KaiNexus.  While many entrepreneurs often say something like, “I saw an underserved area of the market” or “I had a vision”, my path was a little different.  

I don’t come from a quality improvement background.  I’m not a Lean or Six Sigma black belt.  The bulk of my career has been within the IT consulting arena, mainly within the financial services industry.  During a typical consulting engagement, we would deliver large-scale solutions that solved complex problems.  Instead of an incremental or continuous approach to improvement, we took large steps forward by implementing a system that took months (or even years) to design, build, and install -- not a Lean approach at all.  This was the “revolution” approach, as opposed to the “evolution” approach.

What Our CTO's Been Reading

Matt Paliulis is the KaiNexus Chief Technology Officer. Over the years, he has worked for Price Waterhouse, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and IBM as a data warehousing and business intelligence consultant, where he bridged the gap between business process and IT.  Matt has been a part of numerous successful projects at Fortune 500 companies in the financial services sector, creating and integrating software to solve business problems. We asked him to share what he’s been reading this week. Enjoy!

As the CTO of KaiNexus, most of my days are spent immersed in technology.  From backup and recovery strategies, performance tuning and debugging, to planning the next version of KaiNexus, my days are a computer nerd’s fantasy and English major’s nightmare.  The most recent focus of my work related learning has been researching everything about the various tools, platforms, languages, and frameworks in preparation for the start of development on KaiNexus 2.0.  Rather than sharing the technical blogs and publications that I’ve been pouring through, here are some of the other books I’ve been spending time with.
