How it all began

Staffcloud was founded by two friends in a Zurich flatshare. They wanted to restore some order to the complex planning of flexible employees. This process also improved the relationship between employers and employees, but they didn't notice this until much later.

We look back on a very successful 2019. For the second year in a row we grew by more than 20% and can record customer growth in new countries and industries. Staffcloud is now beeing used in 7 countries and Staffcloud customers manage around 100'000 flexible employees.

November 2019

The first customer in the USA starts working with Staffcloud. The staff provider from Philadelphia and Washington supplies all kinds of social events, including bars and hotels, with its catering staff. The USA is now the sixth country to use Staffcloud.

June 2019

We produce our first video about Staffcloud with two professional actors and numerous extras. The story: Our software packed in light entertainment hopefully brings a smile to the faces of the audience at the end. The location for the shooting was the Maag Event Hall in Zurich. Check out the video on our live demo page.

March 2019

For temporary employees, the most important thing to know is last month's wages. All submitted and approved work data is now available to be displayed within employee accounts. Of course, the employer ultimately decides which data (hours worked, breaks, hourly wages, etc.) can actually be accessed.   

January 2019

The wage system can now accurately reflect collective labour agreements (CLA) and collective bargaining agreements. Thus, age and time periods can now be added to wage profiles. This ensures, for example, that employees receive the correct wages defined for their age group.  

October 2018

The automatic integration with Formstack is fully operational and clients have started incorporating it into their business. Staff can now fill in and submit personalised reporting forms electronically.

June 2018

Staffcloud and Bankettprofi are now connected! An automatic interface allows both leading systems to exchange all important data.

May 2018

It is even easier to process work data through bulk editing. Work data for the whole project can be changed or approved – no matter how many employees are currently working on this project.

March 2018

A new module is added to the app. Employees can now very easily submit work data such as time proposals, expenses, documents or photos through the app.

Zwei Screens

So you can recharge your batteries, we provide you with tea, coffee, drinks as well as seasonal fruit. Your parents can breathe easy.


Relaxation is important to ensure a top performance in the work day. Our employees receive more than the customary holiday days.


A table tennis match, perhaps? In Bucharest, you can play a game of ping-pong and then recline in couch corner to think about coming projects.


Offices do not need to be eerily quiet. We listen to music chosen by a team member all day. Everyone can be the DJ sometime.


Our offices are located centrally and easily reachable by bicycle. Bikes can also be deposited safely.

Centrally-located offices

When choosing locations for our offices, we made sure they are easily reachable by public transport.
