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 and video 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’ rich media. We never managed to free enough time to perfect our image and video management solutions.

We’ve decided to take the time and build a service that would offer an end-to-end solution to an application’s entire media-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.

    Lots of people talk about culture and great fits. Cloudinary does not talk culture, they practice culture! Throughout the interview process and onboarding they continue to impress me with the way they treat people and care for their team members. Above and beyond the typical Silicone Valley talk but no action.


    Between breakfast, lunch, and snacks, I'll need to watch my weight!

    You have laid the foundation for a great company! Looking forward to helping it grow.

    Easy Interview


    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cloudinary.


    First round phone screen was great, I was invited to come onsite to interview with three people. The first person interviewing me was late, asked a lot of non-work questions, and ended the interview early- he walked me out without giving me the opportunity to speak to the other two interviewers. This was a huge waste of my time and easily the worst interview experience I've ever had.
