In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day on March 8, we’re recognizing influential women at Zscaler who have made a significant impact within their careers, teams, and on the Zscaler family as a whole.
Karen Mayerik is a Sales Engineering Manager for customers that are in education and state and local governments.
“If you love problem-solving, tech is an amazing place to be,” she said. “I get a lot of satisfaction from meeting with customers, understanding where they're having challenges, and being able to solve those problems for them. There's something that is really creative as part of that process.”
Outside of work, Karen enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters, ages 10 and 12. “We love to go to the lake as a family,” she said. “And we actually have a rule that when we're on the boat or around the campfire, we put all of our devices away, so it's always a nice break!”
Sandi Lurie has been Vice President, Talent Acquisition at Zscaler since July 2020. “Our job is to attract and hire top talent into the company while maintaining an exceptionally high bar for candidate experience,” she said.
“Watching the careers of people that I've worked with and hired in my past companies is extremely rewarding. Everything from leaving the talent acquisition career to go into HR business partner or operational roles, or seeing people that I hired into their first job now running talent teams at scaling companies themselves, I love seeing people succeed.”
Outside of work, in non-quarantine times, Sandi loves to travel, attend live theater shows in New York, and spend time with friends and family. Within quarantine, however, she is mastering eyelashes and the art of banana bread baking.
