Our work environment and culture

Purposeful Clouds lives and works in the Cloud. We do not provide an office, a cafeteria, or a time clock. Our organization is very flat; everyone reports to a member of the senior executive team. We are an agile and creative organization that makes decisions quickly. We work really hard to not fill our days with meetings.

Our team members are independent contractors. We expect you to make commitments to complete tasks, and complete them professionally and on time. We expect you to let us know when problems arise that may impact schedules. We do not demand, nor do we expect, that you are devoted 100% to Purposeful Clouds. You are free to pursue other personal and professional interests that do not violate Purposeful Clouds proprietary information.

We reward our team members primarily based on the revenue they bring into the company, either individually or as part of a team.

  • We want a person who can work independently without much supervision, but who also can work with small geographically disjointed teams to successfully accomplish sales engagements.
  • We want a confident person with excellent verbal and written communications skills.
  • On the other hand, we want someone with a demonstrable ability to quickly learn new skills. The Cloud is constantly evolving and we must all rapidly evolve with it.
  • We want a person who can think on their feet, who is not afraid to take risks, yet knows when to say "I don't know" and seek help from their team mates.
  • We want people with thick skins that can take active part in hard-hitting discussions on process and direction, and do not mind when their thoughts and writings are edited.

Remuneration and incentive plan

We will negotiate with the candidate to develop sales quotas and a commission-based remuneration plan.

Onboarding

We provide time-effective coaching and training specifically focused to your knowledge needs. Our goal is to get you selling immediately.
