It’s an exciting time at Crossbeam. Less than three years post-launch, we have over six thousand companies using our platform, raised more than $100M of venture capital from leading VC firms, and are working with awesome strategic investors like Salesforce, HubSpot, Okta, and Slack. Best of all, we’re just getting started. In a market full of uncertainty, we are fortunate to have an unwavering long-term vision and the funding to see it through at full speed.

Crossbeam helps companies partner with each other in a more data-driven way by acting as an escrow service for data. Our platform allows companies to find overlapping customers and prospects with their partners while keeping the rest of their data private and secure.

With this big idea comes some fun and unique technical challenges: We’re like a social network for data warehouses, so the data gets big and our results need to show up fast; we need to reliably find “matches” between data sets originating from different systems; we need our users to love the experience and capture real value every step of the way; security and trust are paramount. And there’s more where that came from.

You’ll be part of a rapidly growing team of experienced engineers as we take our software from early success to enterprise scale. This is an opportunity to get involved as we establish the best ways to grow as a software development team.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:

  • Cultivating a Diverse Team: We are in the midst of rapid growth! You will collaborate heavily with People Operations and Engineering Leadership to hire, onboard, and grow a driven and highly motivated team with a focus on building a well-rounded product.
  • Owning Your Team’s Systems: Develop a deep understanding of your team’s systems in collaboration with your engineers and be able to guide conversations around prioritization and effort.
  • Lead a High Performing Team: Collaborate with our product and design teams to prioritize, lead, and own complex technical projects from initial planning, execution, to early access and final delivery.
  • Culture Development: Be a part of creating technology team culture (and overall team culture as well) in a remote-first (Zoom/Slack) environment. You should show empathy to all team members, we are all working towards the same goal, we all need to know our path is paved with sensitivity and helping hands.
  • Communication & Mentoring: Be a resource for other developers on the team. The ability to show compassion when giving direction & performing reviews is paramount. You will lead the team through projects giving constructive feedback and participating in reviews of code & architecture.

 

THESE ARE SOME OF YOUR TRAITS:

  • You are a leader, and you are excited to help your team succeed.
  • You have 5+ years of experience as an individual contributor on a larger development team.
  • You have experience leading a team of engineers through new feature builds.
  • You have the ability to comprehend and track multiple technical initiatives simultaneously.
  • You have a thoughtful approach to communication, a flexible nature, and a genuine interest in the success and growth of the people you work with.
  • You are able to communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
  • You have experience working with modern Front End technologies. (We use Vue, but we’ll take any Javascript expertise!)
  • You have experience writing backend code that is simple and performant.
  • You have an understanding of interacting with databases, preferably relational (ideally Postgres or MySQL, but Mongo and other NoSQL databases work too).
  • You are knowledgeable of various cloud technologies (AWS ideally, but Azure, etc, acceptable).
  • You have the ability to understand big data as well as an excitement for data and the problems that need to be solved within it.
  • You’re not afraid to speak up when you have a point of view, but can “disagree and commit” once a final decision is reached.
  • You have an unrivaled work ethic and are excited to learn from the team around you.
  • You work remotely as part of a larger team.
  • You just read this whole list and got more excited than concerned.

What does onboarding look like at Crossbeam?

As a remote-first company, we’ve worked hard to make sure that the onboarding, enablement, and ongoing support of our team members are world-class. From day one, you’re connected with members of the Crossbeam team who are dedicated to making sure you have everything you need, like our Team Experience Manager, Head of People Operations and Business Operations Associate. From there, you’ll connect with your manager and smaller team to get the flow of your day-to-day down. During the first week, we’ll also introduce you to Beamers from every level of the company, like our Partnerships or Product squads, so you get the full scope of what we are creating here at Crossbeam.

We’re very active on Zoom and Slack. We use a Slack App called Donut which allows the team to opt in for random connections with other Crossbeamers to help everyone feel a little more connected remotely.

Everyone’s job at Crossbeam is essential to our success, and we do the work to make sure you know that and have support from the start.

 

What will new hires learn at Crossbeam?

Coming in on your first day at Crossbeam, we will get you comfortable with the product, industry, and terminology as you begin to learn your new role.  For incoming engineers, we built “Crossbeam University,” which helps new hires get acclimated with our tech stack and process. For Sales, we have a demo and CRM certification process that eases you into a client-facing role.

As you become more acquainted with the team and your role, we will continue to help you grow in your career through facilitating internal training, 1:1s with leaders in the company and supporting your participation in external classes and conferences.

We want every new hire to feel comfortable bringing in new ideas and making suggestions to how we can be better. As much as you learn from us, we hope you are able to teach our team as well.

 

Tips for anyone ready to send their resume over? 

Get familiar with the Crossbeam team and what we’re building. We hire folks who believe in our work and what it offers our partners!

No one shows up to their first day of work knowing all the right answers to the questions they’ll face. And that’s OK. At Crossbeam, we’re looking for people open to learning and growing with our team as we work towards creating a great product. Active learners and doers, please do apply.

We really mean it when we say we’re building an equitable workplace. No matter your background, if you think you can apply your special expertise to Crossbeam’s mission, we want to hear from you.
