An Insider's view of JumpCloud

What’s the vibe like in the office?

A key trait for us is having an open, positive mind. We believe that taking the road less travelled - or at least exercising that path - will create new, different, and interesting ideas. We ask our teams to always consider the outside-of-the-box solution to a problem and encourage them to try those creative ideas.

Aaron

VP of People

What projects are you most excited about?

Growth! JumpCloud is actively growing in Denver/Boulder and across the U.S. Attracting and engaging a diverse group of talent as we continue to expand is my main focus. JumpCloud has a strong culture of learning, so we're always looking at what we're doing and adjusting to make it even better.

Katy

Manager, People Attraction

What makes someone successful on your team?

My team members feel empowered to create, design and execute with a lot of freedom at JumpCloud. This enables them to take an active role in their career development and the development of other team members at JumpCloud.

Courtney

Manager, Learning and Development

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I'm available pretty much anytime via email, Slack, phone, in person. More than the communication vehicles and time, I really like to dig in on projects with our teams. By working on important issues together as just another voice or hand to help, I think that helps the team feel that I'm accessible to them and there to help.

Rajat

CEO
