The CallidusCloud Mission
CallidusCloud’s mission is to revolutionize business processes and align key parts of the business to revenue through software that delivers increased productivity, greater customer engagement and top-line results.
Sales and marketing have similar objectives – but for too long, technology has contributed to blind spots in the journey of a lead from generation to the close (or loss) of a deal. Those blind spots, in turn fuel the antagonism between sales and marketing. In an era where the two need to work closer together than ever, technology is driving them further apart.
This is a problem that CallidusCloud addresses. First, we provide tools to automate key parts of the marketing and selling process – marketing automation, configure price quote (CPQ), territory and quota (T&Q), sales enablement, sales coaching, learning management, commissions, customer experience and incentives. Each product can be used as a stand-along application or as part of a suite. Then, we ensure tight integration between each product in the Lead to Money Suite – when used in conjunction, their impact is magnified, and can have a revolutionary impact on a business’s sales productivity.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at CallidusCloud (San Mateo, CA).
Two calls with recruiter, then one call with manager, then met team of four people individually, then did a remote Webex presentation. The recruiter was very helpful. Presentation was pretty intense since there were all four people attending remotely.
