Who we are
Crowdcast is the online events platform for businesses, creators, and people at large to bring their community together. We've had massive growth over the past few months as people all over the world move their events online. Every month, millions of people attend events ranging from Q&As to workshops, live shows, meet-ups, webinars, online concerts, & online summits. Our customers range from big companies like Adobe, IBM, Twilio, & HP to creators like Mos Def, Amanda Palmer, MIA, System of a Down & Jacob Collier.

We believe technology can be used to bring people together & bridge divides. We're empowering people to share their ideas at scale, bring their communities together, and make a living in the process.

We're a profitable, remote-first, and long-term thinking company. You could say we're a zebra company.

Who you are
You get a kick out of imagining what's possible and then realizing it through code. You have a not-so-secret obsession with solving complex problems. You're aware that your job isn't over when that code gets deployed.

You have high integrity, are self-motivated, and a lifelong learner. You're not afraid to dive into uncharted territory and are open to updating your opinions based on new information. You have strong written communication that is thoughtful and clear. You're constantly pushing yourself to grow and become the most authentic & full expression of yourself.

You've spent years refining your engineering skills and now you want to do work that truly makes a positive impact on the world. You're looking to help build a company that's directly empowering people while being profitable and sustainable. You balance creating impact today with long-term goals, and you want to play a key role in an early team. You're motivated to help build a team you love working with and a culture that you're proud to be part of.
