Join the CloudTrade team and help us continue to create, innovate and grow.

Founded in 2010, CloudTrade is an innovative company specialising in cloud-based eDocument solutions.

CloudTrade connects organisations.  Our patented technology provides a non-disruptive way for organisations to send and receive electronic business documents, removing the need for receiving organisations to manually enter the document data (e.g. invoice, order, etc) into their processing application.  This in turn provides a platform for further automation opportunities.   

We are growing fast and we require more staff to ensure we maintain our growth targets and deliver projects and services to support our clients requirements.
