Cloud IQ opened its doors down under back in February 2013. We’ve been a small but perfectly formed team for some time, but recently the team has expanded which has allowed us to move into larger premises. We’d like to take this opportunity to show you around.
There's 11 people in the Sydney office and we are still recruiting. We have a really great mix of people and skills. There are 3 functions in Sydney, we have the Sales team, the Account Management Team and the Engineering Team. This means we can work with customers on the other side of the world from the UK office, and means we can cover all time zones.
350 George is a historic building first constructed in 1895 just minutes away from iconic landmarks such as Circular Quay, Hyde Park and the QVB. The location is just one of many reasons why we love working here. Positioned right in the heart of Sydney, we’re surrounded by a range of shops, restaurants and have at least six different food-courts within walking-distance (the real reason we love it here!). With the Parisian-style laneways from Ash Street to Angel Place on our doorstep, it’s safe to say we’re lucky to be situated in such a beautiful part of Sydney.
When it comes to our office suites, they’re cosy spaces perfect for collaborating and sharing ideas. A few weeks back we held our first Codefest in here and we’re looking forward to making it a monthly event and seeing all the new ideas generated from it.
Our breakout room is also vital to our way of life here. We use it for everything from meetings to presentations to the not-so-serious netflix catch-up sessions during lunch hours. Not to mention, we’ve just ordered a Foosball table for this multi-purpose room - so there’s plenty more fun to come!
The dignified aesthetic and buzzing surrounds are not all that we look forward to as we head into the office each morning... the diverse and growing Sydney-team make the Cloud IQ office a really exciting place to be. Even in the fast-paced environment we make time to get out and about and enjoy some highly-important team-bonding activities. We’ve been to a number of restaurants, mainly to celebrate team’s birthdays with old faves including Mejico, Chin Chin and Lotus. Besides this, we love going to the lawn bowls at ‘The Greens’ especially when the sun is shining, and of course, we enjoy Friday night drinks here and there at Ryan’s Bar or Ivy’s Pool Club, especially in the summer when we can make the most of their outdoor area.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peek into our Sydney office. We’d love to show you around, so feel free to pop in and say hello!
