    We are a small team of experienced engineers shipping lots of code. We collaborate early and often, putting an emphasis on designing technical solutions before coding them. We emphasize remote work, with teammates in the Philadelphia area working from home at least half of the week. The majority of our collaborative work happens on Slack and Zoom.

    • The idea of working in a fast-paced startup environment while shipping high-quality software excites you.
    • 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.


    This is a salaried role. In addition, Crossbeam offers:

    • Health Care Plan (Medical, Dental & Vision)
    • Flexible PTO Policy
    • Free Food & Snacks
