CloudApp enables instant business communication through shareable videos, gifs, and screenshots
3 Million + sign ups. Over 1,000 Business Customers. 50%+ of the Fortune 1000 use the product.
We're still a small team, so the opportunity for impact is still really high. Most of our team has spent time at large slower moving organizations and love that we can ship new features, talk to customers, and really grow and drive the business so quickly.
Our engineering team operates on two week cycles, or sprints. Each cycle/sprint begins with a meeting to discuss time estimates for features, and each team member contributes to what they feel are the highest value and most impactful things we should be doing, as well as helping other team members estimate the difficulty and time required to build new features. We use pull requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews, use Jira to track progress during our sprints, and we are using tools like Slack, Zoom, and CloudApp for both syncronous and asynchronous communication.
CloudApp has a product that is beloved by users, and used everyday by those users many many times. As a result, it's incredibly important for us to have high availability, fast performance, and a low amount of bugs. Some of the more interesting technical challenges we get to work with are 1) multiple apps across different OS platforms (windows, mac, chrome, ios), 2) video production — our users create and share a lot of video content, which means we have to ensure our servers are strong and performant.
1) Building real-time video sharing functionality 2) Building cross platform feature parity for our different desktop clients (mac, windows, chrome) 3) Building integrated workflows for our users to share their content into the products that they use everyday
1) Customer First (we are building a product for them to help drive their business) 2) No Egos (no drama, no attitudes) 3) Collaboration 4) Continuous Improvement 5) Check before you ship (essentially like 'check 2x, cut once')
Big thing for us — work hard, be nice to people.
Unlimited vacation policy
We have aimed to have a company retreat 1x a year. Our last retreat was in Mexico, and prior to that it was in San Francisco.
For the first 6 months of an employees time at CloudApp, you can take up to 2 weeks of parental leave. After 12 months, we offer up to 4 weeks total.
We generally aim to work PST hours, and have regular standups and meetings to coordinate work, but the team is flexible on where they can work (many folks work around the US, and a few in Europe/Mexico)
We provide full medical, dental, vision for US based employees.
Our team allows either full work from home, or if you are near an office more flexibility but typically something like 1 day a week work from home.
