An Insider's view of Cloud5 Communications

What does your typical day look like?

My typical day starts out with a daily stand call in the morning. Within this call we delve details on issues and projects that we are working on and note any progress or road blocks. A majority of my projects have been breaking down our existing monolithic systems and turning them into manageable microservices.


Senior Software Developer

How does the company support your career growth?

Cloud5 helps support my career by taking a personal interest in their employees which helps us plot a career path within the company, so we can better visualize our future within the company.


Manager, HSIA Operations

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have regular “all hands” meetings where anyone can ask a question or make a suggestion, which works great, but I want our folks to know that they can just as easily shoot me an email or stick their head in my door. People are what makes organizations great … and we need to cultivate dialog and openness as part of our culture to be successful.
