All of the food and drinks at Cloudhouse are FREE. The building we are located in has a canteen that provides fresh coffee, smoothies, breakfast and a wide variety of hot & cold lunches. We operate an unlimited free tab for all our employees.
How about a bit of R&R?
We sometimes feel the need for downtime, so we have a separate breakout area with the latest games and consoles to unwind. Not really a gamer? We can change that – our full VR setup (HTC VIVE) is always ready to take you on an adventure that’s hard to forget.
Every month we finish early and do an activity, drinks and a meal, all paid for on the company card. We have an office full of fresh fruit, nuts, chocolates, ice creams and even beer & spirits for when you’re done working.
