About us:

mCloud is unlocking the untapped potential of energy-intensive assets using IoT, AI, and the cloud. We operate three lines of business, connecting and optimizing assets like HVAC units in commercial buildings, wind turbines in renewable energy, and the control systems at process industry facilities. We're a global company, headquartered in Calgary with a presence across North America, the UK and continental Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and China.

Today, we connect and manage over 59,000 energy assets through our AssetCare™ platform. We help our customers double asset productivity, reduce their asset energy consumption by up to 25%, and triple the speed at which they are able to respond to the unexpected. mCloud helps eliminate about 80,000 tons in greenhouse gas emissions every year – or the same amount of GHG emitted by 18,000 passenger cars on the road.

Solving the world's most challenging energy problems is hard work – it takes dedicated, talented, and innovative people working together as one team to make it all happen. We are a team, which means "we" comes before "me." And we are driven to deliver measurable, bottom-line results for our customers everywhere through our technology. We get stuff done and we have fun doing it!

Why you want to join our team:

If you want to be part of an elite team with the ambition to become Canada's next big unicorn tech company, mCloud is the place for you. We are a team that helps one another succeed and thrive – you will get the autonomy, support, and flexibility you need to be successful from every part of our business.

Why you shouldn't join our team:

We are busy and fast-paced! We work hard. We are a global company, so our hours are not standard. Sometimes you have to be up early or work late to meet with people in different time zones, but with that comes flexibility.

Our expectations are high. This is not an organization where you can hide or not constantly be driving for results.

No day is ever the same, and most days, you come in with a list of things to do, and then something happens, and you need to pivot.

We do not tolerate people who are only in it for themselves. We are a team, and we are all in the business of helping those around us succeed. We expect and demand nothing less.
