Are you as obsessed with cloud technologies as we are? Would you love to devote your career to learning even more about the cloud and helping others do the same? Wonder what it’s like to work at Cloud Academy?
We’ve built an awesome team of content creators, developers, designers, account managers, marketers, and support staff who share our passion for the cloud and embrace our unique and exciting company culture.
The team and culture behind Cloud Academy
Our team of just under 50 employee-owners works from six different countries around the world to deliver the high-quality and always current content that you see on our platform. In every decision we make, we weave our Core Values, which are: Ask Why, Execute, Focus, Take Risks, Trust, Empower, Be Frugal, Stay Customer and Data-Obsessed, Think Globally, Never Settle, Be Humble, Have Fun.
This is what we stand for. On paper, these may just be words, but what matters is bringing those words to life. Here are four reasons our employees shared for how we’ve embraced our values and why they love working for Cloud Academy:
- The People! Our Community Manager, Diego Tiziani, says that what he loves most about working for Cloud Academy is his fellow employees. He loves their energy and enthusiasm, their willingness to help one another out, their passion for what they do, and their involvement in local communities outside of work. He also loves the close-knit community across the entire Cloud Academy team.
Half of us work together in our office in Mendrisio, Switzerland, just across the border from beautiful Lake Como, Italy. The other half of us work remotely from five other countries around the world. We work hard to maintain our team cohesion and we get together twice a year as a company, once in Switzerland and once in the US.
- The Work! Roberto Turrin, our Senior Data Scientist, loves working with and staying in tune with state-of-the-art technologies. Roberto and his team have a blast simplifying, scaling, and boosting daily operations to personalize the user experience.
Whether you’re a developer looking to grow your skills, a designer striving to create an amazing user experience, a customer success manager ensuring only the best level of service to our customers, a marketing wizard engaging the community or a member of the support staff who helps hold it all together, the work of every individual at Cloud Academy makes a difference to the company, has an impact on our growth, and directly affects the success of our business.
- The Passion! Stuart Scott, our AWS Researcher, and Trainer has a passion for knowledge sharing. Working at Cloud Academy gives him a great platform to teach, exchange ideas and, most importantly, interact with the growing cloud community looking to enhance their skills.
Our passion for what we do is evidenced by the quality of our content. If you’re passionate about your career and want to thrive in your field, we’re looking for people just like you.
- The Culture! A lot of companies talk about having a great company culture. We don’t just talk about it, we live it. Julie Tessaro, our Social Media Coordinator and the newest member of our Marketing team, claims that although she is new, she already feels like she’s at home at Cloud Academy. Julie feels that the culture is welcoming, open-minded, and engaging. She feels empowered by the level of passion she is now a part of. Greg DeRenne, one of Cloud Academy Labs Developers, applauds the commitment of the CA leadership to hire smart and humble people. He believes this paves the way for true teamwork and helps preserve the company culture as we continue to grow.
Here at Cloud Academy, we embrace and support independence, transparency, positive communication, professional development, and a work-life balance. In the office, we drink only the best Italian espresso and we have been known to take occasional breaks to play some hard-core ping pong.
