Who we are

At Cirrus, we are passionate about education and its ability to empower people across the globe. We believe that technology is a powerful tool for the effective assessment of skills and knowledge, and we are committed to making this technology accessible to all.


Our time and expertise in the e-assessment industry has taught us that traditional online exam platforms were either feature-rich but clunky to use, or simple to use but didn’t offer all the features needed for modern-day assessments. 


Cirrus exists because we wanted to combine both – so organisations didn’t have to compromise. We developed assessment software with advanced features on a user-friendly platform – and unrivalled customer support. It is our goal to help clients deliver the best possible exams in the easiest way possible.

Our mission

We are dedicated to making the benefits of e-assessment accessible to everyone in order to help organisations and students succeed, thrive, and prosper. Would you like to join us in our mission?

The future of assessment

We see a future in which education and assessments are accessible to all, fair and in perfect sync to prepare students for the life endeavours they choose to pursue. 


E-assessment technology will not only replace traditional paper-based exams, but increase the effectiveness of educational practices and eventually even transform learning and assessment.

Our values


Only through sincerity can we build meaningful partnerships with other businesses and trusting relationships with our customers.


We pursue every challenge with a positive attitude. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best: “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”


A culture and ethos of excellence drives true quality and innovation. We strive not only to satisfy our customers, but to exceed their expectations.


A happy team is motivated, productive and efficient. We spend a lot of time together so we feel it is important to have fun. Laughter costs nothing and enriches everything.


An atmosphere where everyone is happy and harmonious has to be the way forward if we are to be a truly successful business. We want to work in harmony with each other, with other businesses and most importantly, with our customers.


There is no time to take a nap in the technology industry! Our passion for what we do means that the creative wheel is always turning. We strive to be at the forefront of innovations in our field, solving not only today’s challenges, but also those of tomorrow.
