It’s an exciting time at Crossbeam. We have more than 10,000 companies using our platform, our product has produced repeatable and demonstrable value for our customers, and we have a first-rate team to support our continued growth. 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 partner ecosystem platform allows companies to find overlapping customers and prospects with their partners while keeping the rest of their data private and secure.

 

Crossbeam Sales Edge is our latest exciting product (and team!). After companies start sharing their data on the platform, the Sales Edge team jumps in to answer “How do I turn this into revenue?”. To solve this we need to store and show the right data, at the right time, to the right people. We help sales teams find the gold in their company’s partnerships that they have struggled to access and reduce (or eliminate) the need for cold outreach. Doing our job well will change how businesses drive billions in revenue.

 

You’ll join a small-but-growing team of experienced engineers to take our software from early stage to enterprise scale. This is an opportunity to truly influence and contribute meaningfully to our product and engineering practices.

 

Responsibilities include:

  • Consistently be shipping features and enhancements with guidance from other team members. 
  • Work in tandem with other team members to create, test, and deploy functional code.
  • Work with our other engineers to create strong backend code. Partner with Product Management, Design, and Customer Success teams to iterate on features and enhancements.
  • Prioritize support issues which are reported by users and/or our Customer Success team, help to identify areas of improvement in the code base and contribute to make it better.
  • 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.
  • Work closely with more junior developers to share experience throughout the Crossbeam Engineering team.

 

These are some of your traits:

  • You have at least four (4) years professional experience on an engineering team. 
  • You love writing code in Python and/or React (and  excited by the opportunity to work with Clojure (What Crossbeam Core is built in!)
  • You have a comprehensive understanding of a modern frontend framework, REST APIs, and how they interact with backend code.
  • You have a professional understanding of interacting with relational databases.
  • You’ve worked with cloud technologies (AWS ideally, but Azure, etc, acceptable).
  • You have experience working remotely as part of a larger team.
  • 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.
  • You just read this whole list and got more excited than concerned.

What are Crossbeam’s core values?  Crossbeam was founded on four core values that serve as a throughline for how we operate and make decisions. They are “Trust is our Business,” “Feed the Network,” “Equity,” and “This is Fun.”   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.
