It’s an exciting time at Crossbeam. Less than three years post-launch, we have over five 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 are 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-growing 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.

 

 

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 strengthen the UI practice 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 are excited about writing code in Clojure and/or Vue (our stack).
  • You have experience writing backend code that is simple and effective.
  • You have an understanding of a modern frontend framework, REST APIs, and how they interact with backend code.
  • You have an understanding of interacting with databases: preferably relational (ideally Postgres or MySQL, but Mongo and other NoSQL databases work too).
  • You have experience with cloud technologies (AWS ideally, but Azure, etc, acceptable).
  • You have experience in building distributed systems using tools such as Kafka, RabbitMQ, SQS, etc.
  • 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 have experience working remotely as part of a larger team.
  • You just read this whole list and got more excited than concerned.
