Cloudreach, Edinburgh

Information Technology and Services

Big dreams often start small. From an idea in a London pub, we have grown into a global cloud enabler which operates across 7 countries and speak 30 languages.

Our mission at Cloudreach is to “enable innovation”.  We do this by helping enterprise customers adopt and harness the power of cloud computing. We believe that the growth of a great business can only be fuelled by great people, so join us in our partnership with AWS and Microsoft and help us  build  one of the most disruptive companies in the cloud industry. It’s not your average job, because Cloudreach is not your average company.

We’ve just moved! Our new Edinburgh office is located in the centre of Edinburgh’s old town, nestled at the foot of the ancient hill of Arthur’s Seat and the beautiful modern buildings that house the Scottish Parliament.
