Technical.ly Coverage

It’s an exciting time at Crossbeam. Just two years post-launch, we have over three thousand companies using our platform, raised more than $40M 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 (their ecosystem) 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 join a small-but-mighty team of experienced engineers to take our software from early success to enterprise scale. This is an opportunity to truly influence and contribute meaningfully to our product and engineering practices and help create a beautiful and functional product.

Responsibilities include

  • User Interface Development: Lead development of new features and improvements to Crossbeam’s products in a secure, well-tested, and performant way.
  • Team Collaboration: Be a partner to our Product Designers, turning design into pixel perfect UIs. Collaborate & learn with  various other teams like Product Management, Engineering, and Customer Success to iterate on features and enhancements.
  • Develop & Deploy: Consistently be shipping features and enhancements with guidance from other team members. Work in tandem with other team members to create, test, and deploy code.
  • Learning & Growth:  Get involved with learning and collaborating with your team members. Help cultivate an environment where you can ask and be asked questions that will better the team as a whole.
  • Mentorship: Work closely with more junior developers to strengthen the UI practice throughout the Crossbeam Engineering team.

These are some of your traits

  • You have 4+ years professional experience on an engineering team.
  • You have deep knowledge of modern frontend frameworks, such as Vue* or React, and of REST APIs. (*we use Vue here!)
  • You have strong testing practices with tools like Jest, Mocha, or Chai
  • You have an understanding of interacting with databases, preferably relational (ideally Postgres or MySQL, but Mongo and other NoSQL databases work too).
  • You can easily adapt prototypes with design tools (Figma, Storybook, Invision, etc)
  • You are excited about the opportunity to help lead projects on a smaller team
  • You have a wealth of experience to share with the team and help guide UI best practices
  • You enjoy collaborating with product and design teams to create the best possible UI.
  • You believe in creating space for people with different backgrounds and viewpoints to share their opinions in a respectful environment.
  • You embrace complex technical challenges and thrive on discovering simple solutions.
  • 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.

HOW WE WORK

Our team has always emphasized remote work, with teammates in the Philadelphia area and distributed across the country. We’re committed to a remote-first culture, with the majority of our collaborative work happening on Slack and Zoom.

When we’re able and when travel feels comfortable again, we’ll celebrate with team offsites and events about once a quarter, and welcome our remote team to join for some facetime whenever they can. In the meantime, we’re focused on creating the best experience possible for new team members from a distance.

OUR VALUES

Trust is our business. We create value by building trust in our company, our team, our technology, and our network. Never let anything compromise that trust.

Feed the Network. Our customer network is our most valuable asset. Prioritize its growth.

Equity. We will build a workplace that ensures everyone has access to the same opportunities to share in our success.

This is Fun.  Few people are lucky enough to do what we do. Follow the fun in every step of the journey.

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.
