What is Cloud Academy?
At Cloud Academy, we’re builders. Learning new technology is just as exciting for us as building it. We do this through utilizing and developing cutting-edge technology and empowering students, developers, engineers and companies to build and grow products with robust and constantly updated cloud skills. Cloud Academy is a startup, based in San Francisco and in Switzerland, that offers a platform to learn cloud computing and test your skills. In just three years, we went from an idea to a solid platform, used monthly by tens of thousands of customers, to learn cloud technologies and practice with our hands on labs. Now is your chance to join our talented team that delivers unparalleled educational content to developers worldwide.
