Job Description

If you are a seasoned business manager looking for a challenge, have we got an opportunity for you! CloudFactory is Nepal’s world-class technology startup that is working to connect 1 million people in developing countries to basic computer work. We have 103 employees in our Bhaisepati office, with a branch in Nairobi, Kenya and an expanding sales office in North Carolina, USA. We need a leader that can manage both the people and processes to help us grow, get better organized and be the glue that allows our Engineering, Solutions, Sales, Marketing and Workforce divisions to focus on what they do best. Like many Silicon Valley startups we are pretty laid back and run a flat organization structure. If you know how to inspire and create a high performance work culture that is driven by goals and the value that people are the biggest asset any company has, you just may be who we are looking for.


Here are some of your responsibilities:

  • Oversee operations, finance, HR, kitchen staff, maintenance and security staff. Coming up with ways to make the working atmosphere more pleasant and efficient while managing a budget of close to Rs. 2 crores yearly.

  • Locally and internationally source major purchases and key vendors to provide services needed for the business.

  • Own the maintenance of the office building and grounds, and guide your team in maintaining good relationships with key local craftsmen: electrical, plumbing, painters, handymen, etc.

  • Coordinate with our legal officer and lawyer on all issues including acquiring and renewing visas, etc., and manage interaction with various government agencies.


You can’t do everything above yourself but you will need to take ownership and manage/grow our operations team towards success. You will report to the CFO in the US office but carry the day to day management of the office in many respects and work closely with the global executive team. Most probably you have an MBA but we are less worried about education and more worried about your ability to execute.



  • 5+ years management experience, with proven track record of providing hands-on leadership

  • Demonstrated ability to manage a team on large office projects (moving office, experience setting up AC, generators, 3 phase line, large hiring initiatives, signing major service level contracts, etc.

  • Advanced skills in spreadsheet software

  • Experience working directly with government agencies

  • Experience working with software company, call center, transcription or other computer-related businesses is a definite asset

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in Nepali and English
