Who are CloudNC?
At CloudNC we are ambitiously and successfully developing deep technology that automates CNC Manufacturing. We have a factory running commercially to produce intricate and high-specification work for our clients which allows us to also tie in our software to a tangible, physical output.
We are driving a manufacturing revolution (Industry 4.0) and we have achieved notable success and world firsts where others have failed. We are ambitiously scaling up having closed on our Series B, achieving partnerships and investments by the best possible organisations in our respective industries – including Autodesk (multi-industry software world leader), Lockheed Martin (the largest aerospace/defence company in the world), and British Patient Capital (arm of the UK Gov’s British Business Bank focused on pushing British R&D in large potential large scale tech companies).
We have been featured in Forbes and technology linked organisations (e.g. TechCrunch, The Engineer etc.), we were awarded and named as Technology Pioneers by the World Economic Forum and our founders are listed in the Forbes 30 under 30.
What it’s like to work together.
We are embarking on a strong scaling strategy and pivotal to this success are the people.
We are guided by the mission and by being humans of empathy, intellectual curiosity, collaboration, and continuous improvement/development (of self and the team).
We are over 100 people strong, with the ambition to double this headcount in the near future. We operate a “flexible first” environment, our HQ office is based in London and our modern factory is based in Chelmsford, Essex.
Location: You will need to be in our Chelmsford office/factory once a week and in our London office once a fortnight. We are flexible with working from home days and flex hours.
The People & Talent Team: The People & Talent team are a key function that has driven CloudNC's growth to date and continue to attract, hire and support the best talent in the market to be successful at CloudNC. The talent team are highly collaborative with hiring managers and colleagues. We immerse ourselves in understanding our factory operations, technologies, product roadmaps and culture. We're a team of naturally curious individuals who want to understand the full context around hiring for a particular role and lead on prioritisation meetings with stakeholders. For this role you would have joint leadership from the Head of Talent (London) and the Manufacturing HR Manager on site in Chelmsford.
What you'll be doing: This is a unique opportunity for a talented recruiter to represent a scaling technology company that is building highly automated CNC factories, running 24/7 powered by our unique technology.
