JumpCloud continues to invest heavily in our engineering team, particularly in the systems area of our product which is a key strategic differentiator for us.

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.


VP of People

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work with multiple teams across the organization to highlight and recruit for openings at JumpCloud. We like to have a diverse group of people in our interview process. Hiring at pace is a huge goal for JumpCloud so it's essential for us to build connections with all of our stakeholders.


Manager, Talent Acquisition

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.


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.



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

One of the core roles in our engineering group is called pathfinder. They are constantly looking at different areas of our product and future plans and coming up with innovative new ways to achieve these. These engineers lead sessions with cross-functional teams on how to leverage their innovations for competitive advantage in the marketplace.
