    I have been working at Cloudinary full-time (Less than a year)


    Great work/life balance. Get to drop off and pick up my kid every day. Employees are very friendly and seem to enjoy working with each other. Lunch is when everyone comes together and sits together to play cards or just chat about their life outside of work. Haven't experienced this at any other company I have worked for.


    Haven't come across any as of yet. Work hard play hard seems to be the motto and that works perfectly for me!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!! Love being being in the work environment where you are at the same table as the founders and CEO and are actually listened too when talking. Very positive work experience that I hope can last for a very long time!

    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.
