Barely three years old, Coastal Cloud has shown that technology companies can flourish in northeast Florida and Flagler County. The company’s culture is encapsulated by its slogan, “Live at the Beach – Work in the Cloud.” Coastal Cloud employs a “hub and spoke” model to serve its customers. Half of its consulting and development employees are concentrated in the company’s SaaS (Software as a Service) Solution Center, or “hub,” in Northeast Florida. Other employees or contractors (“spokes”) can be found near Coastal Cloud’s clients, providing a local presence from Boston to D.C., Denver and as far away as Hawaii.
