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.

So, your boss comes to you in a panic: he's just heard about Google's Core Web Vitals initiative and needs you to optimize the company website right now! "No problem," you say, hiding your fear that it's not something that can be done overnight. Just taking the first metric, Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), how can you possibly identify all the large elements - most likely images or video posters - of the many hundreds of pages that make up your site? There are already thousands of high-resolution (read massive) media files stored away, which marketing could use any time. How are you going to make sure they're all compressed to a size small enough to be delivered within the threshold? Not to mention all the new images and videos that will be created over time...

How to Tap Into the Value of User-Generated Content (UGC)

User-generated content (UGC) took off with, first of all, the advent of the internet and, subsequently, social networks. Everyday consumers were given keys to the kingdom, so to speak, so that they, too, could compose and post content, simultaneously engaging with others online. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok—the networks through which we can create and publish content have grown exponentially, and brands are becoming aware of the benefits of tapping into the gold mines offered by those networks.

Cloudinary reaps a myriad of open web traffic, from ad networks to e-commerce sites. Our Data Science team is dedicated to analyzing the data for use internally and externally.

A glance at any General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) article would reveal that—unlike Android device IDs (AID), through which users can reset their web address—keeping user identifiers, such as Internal Protocol (IP) and Media Access Control (MAC) addresses, as well as International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), violates privacy. As a solution, you can discard all privacy identifications or make them visible to users for reset.
