It’s an exciting time at Crossbeam. Just two years post-launch, we have over three thousand companies using our platform, raised more than $40M 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 (their ecosystem) 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 partner with our developers to ensure performance across our features. You will bring a mix of deep technical knowledge and operational business sense to deploy and scale systems in our fast-paced startup environment as the second SRE on the Engineering Team.


  • Scaling & Growth. Take ownership of scaling our AWS EKS cluster, ELK stack, Postgres databases, Jenkins deployment, and more.
  • Improvement of Process Work closely with other engineers on identifying and addressing shortcomings in our infrastructure and in our deployment processes.
  • Monitoring and Alerting Build out more intelligent alerting systems, seek out potential threats to security and reliability, advocate solutions to these problems.
  • Development. Grow and expand infrastructure products and software automation using Infrastructure as Code (IaC).


  • You have worked in development before, acquiring a keen interest in Site Reliability, and love bringing infrastructure and your drive for development together.
  • You have a deep understanding of AWS. You understand the cloud better than you know yourself, strengths and weaknesses alike.
  • You’re comfortable with Docker and, preferably, proficient with Kubernetes.
  • You’ll bring a wealth of knowledge for scaling databases like ElasticSearch, Postgres, MongoDB, or others.
  • You have strong analytical and troubleshooting skills, thinking through big problems quickly is something you love.
  • You have scaled a large software system and want to do it again.

Our team has always emphasized remote work, with teammates in the Philadelphia area and distributed across the country. We’re committed to a remote-first culture, with the majority of our collaborative work happening on Slack and Zoom.  

When we’re able and when travel feels comfortable again, we’ll celebrate with team offsites and events about once a quarter, and welcome our remote team to join for some facetime whenever they can. In the meantime, we’re focused on creating the best experience possible for new team members from a distance.


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.

We will build a workplace that ensures everyone has 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.
