Cloudinary was founded in 2011 by a group of high-tech veterans who have worked on a huge variety of web projects during the past two decades and got tired of implementing the same image management solutions over and over again.
Throughout the years, we’ve experienced the evolution in web development frameworks first hand, from crude tools to cutting edge platforms. Nowadays, you can quickly build impressive, fast, scalable and affordable web applications you could have only dreamed of in the past.
However, we still found ourselves spending considerable R&D time managing our services’ images. We never managed to free enough time to perfect our image management solutions.
We’ve decided to make the time and build a service that would offer an end-to-end solution to an application’s entire image-related needs, by developers for developers. Exactly as we’ve always envisioned it.
This is how Cloudinary was born.
At Cloudinary we are building the world’s best platform for end-to-end image and video management. We enable our customers to easily upload images to the cloud, perform smart image manipulations and have their media files delivered lightning fast to their website and mobile app users. Cloudinary offers comprehensive APIs, SDK for all development frameworks and extensive administration capabilities.
We believe that interacting and working with great, creative, passionate, fun and smart PEOPLE leads to creating amazing products! We are offering you to join this unique working environment in addition to competitive salary and full benefits.
I have been working at Cloudinary full-time (Less than a year)
This is such an amazing company. It feels like there are unlimited pros but these are the ones I can think of right now:
1. Leadership actually listens, aka: your voice MATTERS
2. Free lunch every. single. day
3. Stocked kitchen - healthy && indulgent treats (helllo freezer full of ice cream)
4. Everyone is treated like family - you matter.
5. An honest to goodness transparent company. The highs and lows are shared so everyone is always in the know.
6. A HUGE effort is made to make sure everyone feels connected. This includes quarterly visits to Israel so that you can meet everyone on team.
7. Cloudinary is very methodical about their hires. They make sure it's a great fit for both parties. And the CEO takes an interest in every single hire because he cares so much.
8. The culture is so healthy. Employees actually like hanging out with each other!
No company is "perfect" - naturally there are some growing pains when a company is scaling. The big BUT is Cloudinary actively works to fix anything that isn't working so if there are cons now... they won't be for long!
The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cloudinary.
The interview process was long but well communicated beforehand. Cloudinary interviews are very personable. The interviewers I met did not come in with the Qs list but had a wonderful conversation about the role.
