Meet one of our top and longest-serving RedCloud consultants, Sophia Stead. Having joined RedCloud in 2016, Sophia has been an integral part of growing the firm, building our culture, and helping our clients succeed since the early days of our “relaunch” in 2015. Read on to hear all about her thoughts on working with us.
Back to school? We can’t believe it either! Those three words mark the end of summer and the kickoff to a new season of learning (our favorite!). As we look forward to rounding out the year and starting 2022 with momentum, we continue our dedication to supporting important organizations in our community with ongoing support to Solid Ground’s Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing.
We’re sharing exciting news on the RedCloud blog today! With our announcement in June that the Puget Sound Business Journal once again listed us on their annual Washington's Best Workplaces, we’re thrilled to have recently learned that we were ranked the #12 best workplace for large companies in the state, and the highest among large consulting firms.
As you may have already heard, this year a few of our team members embarked on an exciting community project in partnership with The UW Consulting and Business Development Center (CBDC). CBDC is no stranger to RedCloud, with ongoing support in years past as part of our ongoing Community program. With an exciting opportunity to press on in 2021, we were so excited to serve as mentors for the Business Management Consulting Program - all via zoom in true remote-workfashion.
As his time with RedCloud is sure to fly by in the blink of an eye, we wanted to be sure to catch some time with Antoine, our newest intern. A rising junior at the University of Washington, Antoine is set to graduate in 2023 with his Bachelor of Art in Business Administration, focusing on Finance and Information Systems. We can already tell that he’s a self-driven and ambitious individual with a bright future ahead - always seeking new knowledge and bringing his hard work ethic to the table. In his free time, he loves rugby, soccer, football and snowboarding - so he also has plenty of fun stories to share with us, too. Read on to hear more about his experience so far on our team.
Believe it or not, July marks the time for our annual team gathering. Last week, our team made their way to a familiar spot - our office’s building plaza patio area for some summer sunshine and eats (a great way to still maintain distance in the fresh, open air!). We hold ourselves accountable to a yearly gathering centered around relaxed fun for more than just the fun of it. Joining together as a team aside from the typical work jargon unlocks a new level of connection with each other. Learning about what else goes on in our lives gives us the ability to understand and maybe even spark new ideas for our work day. A big thanks to all of those that were able to join us - and to those who weren’t able to, we missed you dearly!
Meet RJ, a valued Tech Recruiter on our team. With more than 15 years of experience in recruiting, RJ’s strengths lie in solution-based and strategic thinking. He brings an entrepreneurial spirit to RedCloud and considers himself a risk taker with a passion for getting it all done - and done well! In his free time, he enjoys traveling and loves board games, tech, fantasy and sci-fi movies, video games and puzzles. Fun fact: RJ was once a nationally ranked chess player!
Continuing on with our full year of support to Solid Ground’s Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing, another exciting day of giving back is in the books. Together with our team, we’re constantly brainstorming ways to help the residents at Broadview. The shelter houses families - mainly mothers and their children - providing a safe haven at a secure location in Seattle if they are experiencing homelessness or need to flee from domestic abuse.
You read that right - 15 talented new RedCloud team members have joined our force in the last three months...and we couldn’t be more excited to tell you about each one of them. This class of talent and expertise comes from varying backgrounds - from decades of industry experience, product development, telecom, software engineering and marketing...they’ve all been there, done that. We’re confident in their skills and look forward to the success they will help our clients achieve going forward into the second half of 2021.

We’re excited to hear from Puget Sound Business Journal that once again we’ve been listed as on their annual Washington's Best Workplaces roundup of the top 100 businesses for employee satisfaction. It’s a true honor to hear that even given the challenging times of the last year, our employees are proud to call RedCloud home. With a dedication to transparency - and a constant commitment to it during our busiest seasons - we’re thrilled to see that our employee survey results were overwhelmingly positive.
