Croud is home to the world’s largest network of digital specialists who provide a first-rate service in real-time, whilst enjoying the flexibility of remote working.
Affectionately known in Croud terms as Croudies, these on-demand digital experts come armed with a diverse set of skills, backgrounds, and specialities. This group of specialists plays a vital role at Croud and allows us to meet the needs of our clients across 100+ markets and in 77 different languages, meaning that our clients always receive a relevant and localised service.
But who are the Croudies?
These digital nomads come from all walks of life, from intrepid world explorers to professionals looking to escape the grind, to full-time parents in need of flexibility. Despite their differences, they are all part of the global network, and each and every one of them has a unique and compelling story to tell.
To help you gain a better understanding of our Croudies and the Croud model, they have put together a collection of blogs, telling their stories of how they came to be a part of the Croud family.
