Why you should join Cloudthread

As strong believers in cloud computing, we have founded Cloudthread to fix key issues the technology is facing on its way to mass adoption: cost-efficiency and environmental impact.

You may have heard recent discussions about the high cost of cloud, or on the growing concerns around cloud carbon footprint. At Cloudthread we focus on tackling these problems while keeping the technology attractive. We believe that bottoms-up, engineering-first approach is the way to unlock the most value there, so we aim to serve all the engineering teams, including Data and ML, with the missing toolset to establish better cost controls, lower carbon footprint through enabling better resource utilization, and increase overall transparency of their cloud solutions.

A team of three co-founders - Daniele, Ilia and Thomas - passionate about cloud and FinOps, we have made huge progress as part of Y Combinator's S21 cohort. Our first MVP - technical cloud unit cost monitoring solution - achieved Product of the Day on Product Hunt and is being actively piloted at several companies. We are proudly backed by some of the world's top investors and believe in strong culture with customer-value driven product growth, where we focus on building something awesome that all engineering teams need while having lot's of fun doing so.
