How to Get Hired

We asked Cloudbakers for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Everything we do comes back to our core values, which is why people that naturally have those values make a good fit for Cloudbakers. If they can build trustworthy relationships, if they have a desire to advance in both work and in their personal lives, if they possess a positive, unrelenting and creative approach to problem-solving, and can give and receive constructive criticism, we're pretty certain they can and will succeed in our culture. Our final core value is the ability to be authentic & be yourself. We tell every prospective employee to interview us simultaneously. They need to feel comfortable in our fast-paced environment and work becomes a lot easier when you are open to bringing your unique personality and skills to the table.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Some of the easiest ways are to subscribe to our blog and get to know us, follow us on social media, attend events that we're posting, and research our products and competitors. Ask us questions. Well researched and inquisitive candidates are always impressive to us because all of our team members use that same drive every day to stay ahead of the industry and be the very best we can be for our clients.

Show us what makes you different and don't be afraid to go outside the box! Building custom solutions is what we do, and if we stayed within the same box all the time, we wouldn't be providing the best quality for our clients.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We are always looking to grow our team with exceptional and unique talent. We continually have conversations with talented professionals interested in being a part of our collaborative and innovative team. As our team continues to grow rapidly, we will be looking for employees both on the technical and business sides of the organization.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

You can always visit our website, check out the team page and follow the buttons to apply. But above and beyond that, connect with us on social media and actually reach out! We are always open to having conversations with like-minded professionals who are passionate about the cloud and business innovation. It doesn't take long to pick up on our messaging about 'bringing the human element to technology'. With that said, we want to converse the way that humans do. We don't want to meet you just through your resume. Talk, chat, message, tweet, whatever is most comfortable for you!
