Life at Cloudibility (XI): Plus 2!

It’s beginning of August – and today two new members of our Cloudibility Team start their journey with us. And, additionally, two others, who joined in July, need to be introduced as well.

Chris

Chris is a very skilled and talented Security Engineer, which is into DevOps approaches and -technologies, such as Ansible, ELK, Grafana, etc., as well. He will allow us to put even more focus on Cloud Security and Security processes. Welcome on board, Chris!

Sven

Sven is an experienced Project Manager, with a lot of knowledge around processes and ITIL. He will be working as DevOps Manager, utilizing his experiences in classical and traditional processes in order to learn from them when setting up agile DevOps processes. It will be a challenge for him, our customers and ourselves in each other projects, since he knows both worlds. We like that and are happy to have him with us!

Pratibha

Pratibha started working for us mid-July. She is DevOps engineer, has experiences around AWS and Azure, as well in automatizing processes and tools. She immediately impresses with her knowledge and open mind. We are glad to have her in our team!

Rahul

Rahul is an experienced Java engineer, who joined us mid-July at the same time as Pratibha. He is currently working in our test department and does very important work for something yet to be announced. We love, how he takes responsibility and learns about new approaches and processes!

Is that all? No!

We will have another four people joining our company in August and beginning of September. We’re so proud of each of them, since they are hand-picked and bright minds, without any exception.

I love that company!

Life at Cloudibility (VIII): Hello, India!

logo_cloudibility_rgb_transparent_square_smallCloudibility is a company focused around knowledge and heads. We are not limited to a specific location – our German employees are located in Berlin, Magdeburg, Brunswick, Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, etc.

Today, we expand that a little bit and welcome our first Indian team members. They are located in Faridabad, next to Delhi, in the offices of our long-lasting partner AppFlow Solutions Pvt

Different to other approaches, we don’t treat them as a remote team working for us, but as our team-members working a little bit down the road. They will be participating in our processes, meetings, etc. and will be a core part of our team.

Our Indian team members are „hand-selected“ the very same way as our German stuff – they have to have the same culture, the same approach to cloud-native infrastructure and processes and the same greed for excellence.

Within the next four weeks, our Indian team will be extended to at least three employees, but we are actively looking for even more of them.

So, if you want to be a part of our journey, contact me or Pradeep, the head of our Indian partner!

Welcome on board!

Life at Cloudibility (VII): Can’t we negotiate a special price?

I do often get this question when providing our specialist’s profiles to possible customers.

Well. No. We can’t. And we won’t.

Let me explain that bold statement a little bit. There are plenty of reasons for saying so. The most important one: We have some of the best specialists here at Cloudibility.

We love our experts.

We provide our bright minds with an environment which allows them to shine – a good work-life-balance, paid educational hours, etc. We do this, since we would have liked such an environment ourselves when being employed. But it was not possible due to calculation issues. Which forced us to quit our jobs.

Therefore, we want to pay our experts reasonable salaries and want them to gain even more knowledge. We want them to stay motivated and hunt for solutions instead of billed hours. We are investing a lot into our experts, and we are very happy and proud to do so. We know, that you deserve the best expert and the best approach for your project.

But it’s still expensive, though.

Do you know how much it costs, to do without good experts? Or to simply opt for the cheaper alternative since it is … cheaper? Can you really afford the second best or a somehow okayish solution? Just for the sake of saving some bucks forehand?

Our experts are worth their money.

They are experts and bright minds, they are able to solve problems, they are able to think outside the box. They save you time and money and nerves, they bring knowledge and experience into your projects.

So, no. We won’t do special prices.

We already have the best prices in the market since we have the best experts and the brightest minds here at Cloudibility.

Period.

Life at Cloudibility (III): 70% Women

Just a short fact: As of now, we have around 70% of women and only 30% of men here at Cloudibility.

Of course, this is just a snapshot since the figures might change, as around 70-80% of all employees in IT are men – but it also depicts a fact: We are open to everyone.

We want to have the bright minds, not the bold muscles (although we do not have a problem with muscles at all – I personally try to convert some fat into some muscles for years without success at all, but this is a different story…).

We have established (and we can not live without it) a culture without glass ceilings, we want all of our stuff to have the same chances and opportunities. We want all of our stuff to overtake us in terms of knowledge and experience, we want all of them to stand by their opinions, discuss them, change them, renew them and grow together. We have no issues in being challenged and we want all of our stuff to bring everything on the table – as long as it is done with respect and openness to the other side’s arguments.

There are some things, we do not tolerate, though: Domination patterns, for example. Or this elbow-thing. Or ignoring a „Stop!“, regardless of the issue. Or when someone simply decides instead of explaining. Or the good old „we always did it that way“ approach.

Friederike, our Head of Publishing. Julia, our Head of Sales. Claudia, our COO. 

So, will we be able to keep that 70% ratio? I doubt it but we want this spirit to grow and this culture to be everywhere in our company.

And we want to have even more women as employees. We want them to take responsibility and to prove all the prejudices wrong. We do actively look for women, we do hire them by intent.

Perhaps you know of some good fit for us? Perhaps you want to join us? Send me a mail.

And, BTW: We hire men as well. 😂
