Hone Your Craft. Love Your Life.
Joining Cloudburst will change your life. If you keep up with the pace and level of responsibility and autonomy, it will change your life for the better. Our style is not for everyone.
Hone Your Craft. Love Your Life. This is our internal mantra. These words fuel every decision we make as an organization. It’s pretty simple.
HONE YOUR CRAFT.
Craft is important to us. Actually, it is everything.
Craft means treating your work as an artform. It is finding intrinsic value in the process, not only the outcome.
Craft means you hold yourself to your own standards, because it is your own craftsmanship on the line.
Craft means constantly improving your skills. It is a lifetime journey.
Craft is why you show up to the office. It just so happens that you also earn a living practicing your craft. You recognize you are one of the lucky ones that gets to experience this.
LOVE YOUR LIFE.
Even more important than craft is creating the conditions to love our lives. We are passionate about this topic. This is how we contribute to the greater community and world around us. When you genuinely enjoy your day and can leave feeling refreshed and energized, you have the capacity to contribute to the world as you see best: spending time with your family and friends, volunteering, anything. The impact of feeling autonomy and flexibility in our lives cannot be overstated. Every Cloudburst team member experiences this.
Here are some of the main ways we accomplish this...
Start your own startup within Cloudburst
You get 20% of your time to work on any project you choose. This is generally building a new startup product, contributing to open source projects, or doing pro bono work for local nonprofits. You retain intellectual property rights to whatever you do with this time. We are investing in you and your ideas.
Choose your commitment
You can practice your craft at whatever capacity fits your life. For some, that means 20 hours per week. For others, it is 40. Our team average is currently around 30. The decision is completely yours. Regardless of your capacity choice, you will receive the same salary and benefits as your colleagues at a prorated amount.
Get compensated for your (Extra) efforts
If you go above and beyond your commitment level, that will directly influence your monthly bonus. Yes, we have monthly bonuses. No more working double time for single time compensation.
Work within your schedule
You choose when you work based on your life constraints. We have core office hours during the middle of the day, but outside of that you decide when and where you will work best. We also have one work from home day per week built into everyone’s calendars. Flexibility is empowering.
Take the time off you want
We have an unlimited PTO policy. Team members generally take between four and six weeks per year. We are serious about supporting one another’s passions outside of the office. And who doesn’t like extra vacation time with friends and family?
Attend a team wellness class at the office. Currently we have several meditation group meetings per week. Share your own wellness modalities with other team members as part of your day job. Wellness matters. A lot.
