Every time I finish an interview, the existing Kloudie team ask me – “So, are they our next Kloudie?”
It got me thinking – who is a Kloudie? I am sure many of you who read this blog regularly already know that we have a technically skilled team who are working on some pretty awesome bleeding edge projects, so I have been asking myself recently what makes these people ‘Kloudies’ rather than just another consultant.
Kloudie – a definition.
n. A technical guru who is a member of the most awesome cloud solutions consulting team operating in Australia.
Kloudies come in all different shapes and sizes, but there are constants that cross technical niches, state lines and business units. All Kloudies are technically brilliant, have a truly collaborative approach and the ability to consistently devise new and innovate solutions to ensure our customers make their move to the cloud successfully. Our innovation ensures that we are providing our customers with the best service possible.
Technology aside – Kloudies are collaborative athletes. One of the reasons our guys are so successful in the field, is their ability to ask questions to the greater team, and have real time responses from their peers and colleagues. Collaboration is not just an ‘ask’, it’s a given at Kloud and a natural part of being a Kloudie.
Culture is a huge part of being a Kloudie. Even as we grow and develop, Kloudies offer support like a family. Kloudies are not just a line on a spreadsheet. We know that most of our consultants are driven and motivated, and that they have just as many drivers externally. Our Kloudies excel outside of the technical arena as biathletes, triathletes, charity crusaders, trivia masters, exhibiting artists, salsa dance aficionados, cyclists and Xbox champions. We know how important it is to have a balance, and encourage our guys to get involved and support each other.
Passion for what we do and the desire to be the best born in the cloud organisation is our mission statement, but it isn’t possible without the passion and drive from our consultants.
For me – I can honestly say, that each of our consultants carries this passion, drive and motivation. They love working for the best cloud services provider in Australia and we love supporting them in their roles so they can achieve what they set out to do.
So, do you want to be a Kloudie?
