Cindy, Product Development Manager

What’s a typical day like for you at Lyka HQ?
A typical day for me would be split between researching customer insights and market trends, working with different teams on future product releases, and running product tests in our production facility.

My role also sees me working closely with vet nutritionists from the US, machinery providers from the EU, as well as internal Lyka teams including operations, marketing and technology, to help manage new product launches and continuously improve our current range.

What is the best part of your role?
The best part of my role is knowing that I am working on the forefront of the pet food industry and disrupting an antiquated industry with the ability to drive real change to puppers lives.  

What’s your favourite thing about working at Lyka?
The fact that I am able to bring my pup, Chiko with me to work! I am also really lucky that I get to work with passionate and like-minded people from diverse backgrounds.

What dog breed would you be?
I would be a Shiba Inu, as they are known to be loyal but also somewhat sassy with a bit of attitude.

Any tips for people wanting to join Team Lyka?
Joining a start-up can be very fun and exciting, and in order to be successful at Lyka, you should be a self-motivated individual that is passionate about our mission and have a real knack for problem-solving.
