Looking for a fun, challenging career on the Gold Coast? We're always on the lookout for more people to join our team. Check out our available roles below, or get in contact if you think you have what it takes to work here.

Why work with us?

CartonCloud is rapidly expanding due to achieving year-on-year growth in excess of 100%.

What you can expect from us

A quiet, but intense and challenging environment. Our CEO and staff work incredibly hard, and incredibly quickly. The team leads here are 10xr's and we're not willing to compromise on anything less from the staff they manage.

We have sizeable equity options with key staff members to further engagement and ensure they have some skin in the game. However, these are only discussed after we've been able to determine someones aptitude and ability to accept responsibility (responsibility ownership is a key metric here).

We offer competitive salaries and are based in the Gold Coast and have nice offices based in Burleigh Heads.

We're growing really quickly. The company you join today will be very different from the company in 6 months time (just ask any staff member who was here 6 months ago).

We encourage people to talk about, and laugh about their mistakes. We have cookie jar that names go in if you make a mistake that's deemed worthy - then on Friday we draw out one lucky winner. Most of the time it's the CEO who gets drawn as he makes more mistakes than anyone else.

Overall, it's a tough gig, but we all have fun putting in the work. We laugh about the mistakes, post a constant stream of memes on our slack channels, eat lunch together and do things on Fridays like head down to the beach and play Volleyball, put on an afternoon BBQ, bring in a Masseuse or sit down in the downstairs den and watch the Silicon Valley TV show together over a beer. Obviously we don't play volleyball every week, but we try to get out to celebrate the milestones.
