Cloudinary Recognized as a Best Place to Work

Since its founding Cloudinary has been a people-driven business. We wanted to create a culture fueled by transparency, trust and collaboration to encourage our employees to always be developing, learning and contributing.

Today I am so lucky and very excited to announce that for the second time Cloudinary has won the Best Place to Work in the Bay Area, an awards program presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. This year we claimed the #1 spot in the Mid-Size Business Category following a win in 2018 for the Small-Size Business Category.

Winning this award for the second time is a true testament to our people and acknowledgement of the strong culture we have instilled within Cloudinary. What’s more is that it proves that despite our rapid growth over the last few years, we have maintained a strong culture where we put our people first.

Cloudinary began its journey eight years ago in a small office outside Tel Aviv, now we have over 300 employees across five global offices, serving more than 7,500 customers from all over the world. Cloudinary would not be what it is without its people and winning this award for a second time makes me proud and humbled to stand side by side with such impressive, smart and good-hearted people.

In the past year everyone at Cloudinary came together, worked as a team and despite so many challenges in our midst we successfully weathered the storm and came out the other side. But to know that our people were happy during it all is what matters most to me.

We were also honored with a Wellness in the Workplace award at the same event taking the #1 spot out of five other businesses honored.

When the pandemic hit and the world switched to remote working we knew there would be some challenging adjustments. Cloudinary employees took the challenges of 2020 in stride, by working together to stay motivated and support our customers. Their collaborative effort is central to the success of our business and our people is what makes Cloudinary what it is today.
