An Insider's view of 3Cloud

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

3Cloud has an excellent work-life balance. With the unlimited work from home policy, I have the ability to save myself time from a rather long, tedious commute and utilize that time to get more work done with higher quality. In addition to that, being closer to home allows me to spend more time with family, focus on things such as fitness, etc.

What does your typical day look like?

My days are never the same - I juggle time, cost and quality to ensure all clients’ goals are met. Having exposure to open collaboration between teams that work with diverse technologies enables new growth opportunities. One thing stays consistent every day, though - I get to work on challenging projects with brilliant people.
