Senior Software Engineer
2 weeks ago
Job type: Full-time
Hiring from: USA Only
Category: Software Development
It’s an exciting time at Crossbeam. Just one year post-launch, we have hundreds of companies using our platform, raised more than $15M of venture capital from leading VC firms, and are working with awesome strategic investors like Salesforce, Hubspot, 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.
How did we do it? We picked a big problem and are solving it with amazing technology. 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 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.
We are looking for an engineer with experience building web-based software. You will be responsible for building new features (primarily in the backend, but also the frontend), writing tests, reviewing code, and handling support issues.
- 5+ years experience
- Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
- Deep understanding of relational databases and their performance characteristics
- Experience architecting, building, and scaling large backend services
- Knowledge of good devops and software development practices
Not required, but a plus:
- Clojure or other functional programming experience
- Experience with distributed systems processing large data sets
- Experience with a frontend framework like Vue or React
- Knowledge of a wide variety of databases, like Postgres, Redis, ElasticSearch, or others
These are some of your traits:
- 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.
HOW WE WORK
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. We celebrate with team offsites and events about once a quarter, and welcome our remote team to join for some facetime whenever they can.
This role can be based in Crossbeam’s Center City Philadelphia Headquarters, or remote anywhere in the US. Remote employees should be able to travel to Crossbeam HQ in Philadelphia a few times per year.
Crossbeam is a collaborative data platform that helps companies build more valuable partnerships. We have an office in Philadelphia as well as a number of remote teammates across the US.
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 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.
This is a salaried role. In addition, Crossbeam offers:
- Health Care Plan (Medical, Dental & Vision)
- Flexible PTO Policy
- Free Food & Snacks
- Stock Option Plan
- 401k Plan
Fully remote candidates are encouraged to apply. Local candidates are also welcome to work from our Center City Philadelphia headquarters some or all of the time.
Crossbeam's core value of Equity sits at the heart of our hiring process, and we're proud to be building a culture where difference is valued. Applicants from diverse and non-traditional backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. We recruit, employ, train, compensate and promote regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender, disability, age, or veteran status.
