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.
It started with incentives
Since the beginning, we’ve been interested in what drives behaviors and makes sales people sell better. That curiosity has grown into the confidence and knowledge to not only automate compensation payouts but also inform strategy for your whole organization.
Through years of experience and success, our vision has manifested into the Lead to Money suite. It allows sales, marketing, finance, HR, and legal professionals to work together to make every stage of the sales cycle better.
Seven of the top 10 high tech and insurance companies and six of the top 10 telcos rely on CallidusCloud to close more deals, for more money, faster.
With strong year-over-year revenue growth and customer-driven roadmaps, we are on a mission to become a top-five SaaS company.

I have been working at CallidusCloud full-time (More than 5 years)
Callidus is a fast paced company with an amazing culture and visionary leadership.
CallidusCloud employees work hard and play hard. This is a place where performance is key and your performance drives your compensation not your tenure - MVP can be anyone in the company and presidents club is not about sales only! Opportunities and room for growth and the company really does offer you the flexibility to pursue your interests.
One of the few places where i have not seen red tape and focus on getting things done. All employees are encouraged to follow their passion and changing groups or role is very easy and even encouraged. I have seen management work hard ensuring not only that we do not lose good talent by providing enough opportunities but also rewarding top performers.
Also, very considerate to work with employees individual circumstances. In my time here, i have seen HR going to extra length to try finding solution for an employee's personal situation.
The leadership team has been visionary to build portfolio of a suite of products which together, are one of a kind in the market, has is very focused on the company vision and have really delivered results.
From my point of view, not any cons that i can think of. You are responsible for your own destiny here, there is help and guidance available, but you need to seek it.
Advice to Management
Keep doing more of what you are doing. Its working !
Encourage more direct and transparent conversations at all levels.
I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CallidusCloud.
Three phone interviews then three onsite interviews where there were a few of us and we waited together until our next interview. We weren't all applying for the same job though. I then waited for long enough to hear from them that I was sure I didn't get the job, but then was offered a position 2 weeks before they wanted me to start.
