About the Company

ClearScale (headquartered in San Francisco, California, USA) - AWS Premier Consulting Partner has been offering a full range of professional cloud computing services for over 10 years, including architecture design, DevOps automation, refactoring and cloud-native applications development, integration, migration, solving all sorts of security issues (from just a security check to preventing cyber-attacks) and 24/7 technical support using the best advanced technology.

The list of our customers is diverse: from governments (ClearScale is an official cloud partner of the State of California) and educational institutions (University of California, San Francisco) to well-known global brands (IBM, Samsung, GoPro, HP, Conde Nast, Carl Zeiss, etc.) The number of satisfied customers has been well over 850, some of which can be found on the company's website in the Case Studies section.

  • We were the third company to gain a new AWS competence: Applied AI and Machine Learning Operations (MLOps). Less than 15 partners have this competency!
  • We have obtained the status in the Database Freedom program (total less than 20 companies in)
  • Proven expertise as a Managed Services Provider (total less than 16 companies in). This means that ClearScale can perform a full cycle consultancy and service: from audits, system or software development to the 24/7. You can read more about us on the company page - Managed Services.

Since the very foundation of the company, we work 100% remotely from various cities and countries. We work on a high trust basis, therefore we do not monitor our employees via taking screen captures, webcams or logging keyboard typing as some other companies do. The professional reputation of our employees is of the highest value.

  9. English upper - intermediate (spoken and written)
