Job Description

Who We Are:

Cloud Academy is a hyper-growth upskilling and reskilling SaaS company, focused on enabling enterprise customers to have full transparency and control over their tech workforce skills readiness. In a rapidly changing cloud technical landscape where there is an increasing tech skills gap in the market, combined with the difficulty organizations are facing to retain tech talent and the demands for numerous technical certifications, companies need the ability to manage these skills at scale more than ever. We help over 1,000 customers visualize, assess, transform and measure their teams’ tech skills readiness through a unique Skills Intelligence Platform, powered by world class cloud training content. Companies like Warner Media, Deloitte, JP Morgan Chase and Walmart trust Cloud Academy with their technical cloud skills readiness at scale, so they can achieve their cloud business goals.

We are a global team, with colleagues in more than 15 countries worldwide. We are a diverse team that is innovative, collaborative, pragmatic and passionate about making an impact.
