An Insider's view of A Cloud Guru

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe here is a reflection of the people – laid back, casual, and most of all, jovial. No workplace is ever going to be the same as home, but here there is a similar level of comfort. Folks are exceptionally welcoming and willing to help out where they can. Humor is necessary to get through the work day, and we've got that in spades here.

Manager, FP&A

What projects are you most excited about?

Our content team is hard at work to continue providing a differential and expansive training offering to our customers. There is a ton of awesome new stuff in the works for our enterprise offering, Teams, and I can’t wait to continue to help businesses and enterprises in their cloud adoption journey.
