As part of our central engineering, you'll get to work on several different products every quarter. Our product portfolio continuously grows through acquisitions, that means that different products are very likely to make use of different technologies, architecture & frameworks - a fun place for smart tech lovers!

You'll be part of a global remote development team, working shoulder to shoulder (virtually) with the world's top 1% of like-minded ambitious developers.

 
REMOTE CAMP PROGRAM

To apply for a role at Crossover, you will go through a series of online tests, usually during the online hiring event. If you pass these tests, you will be offered the opportunity to participate in our four-full-time week “Remote Camp” training program. This is elite training taught by our top instructors.

Here’s what our graduates have to say about Remote Camp:

"I am very pleased to say that because of Crossover's unorthodox and unique way of transferring the knowledge through (Paired sessions, coaching sessions with CSMs), I have never been more confident in my technical skills and abilities for my role."
-Mikael F

"The CTO Remote Camp was another thing that motivated me. I wanted to see how CTOs across the globe work and learn from them."
-Javed Z

"I've been with the company since Aug (been part of the second Remote Camp) and since then I've learned SQL, databases, servers, tapes, other content management systems etc- and that's only been in 3 months. Usually when I'm in a new company, I learned a lot about their platform, their tools etc during the length of my time with them but never at this speed!."
-Monnaliza T

It is offered as soon as you want to get started. You will be compensated for 40 hrs/ week at the hourly rate for the role you are applying to. Remote Camp is an excellent opportunity to learn about our culture, expectations, tools, processes, and procedures. It's an intensive and demanding program, but every graduate is guaranteed a job at the end of it.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
 

Our environment puts you in a continuous learning mode from day-I. To be successful at Crossover, you need to have a passion (& ability) for learning. You’ll be continuously exposed to new technologies, products, and frameworks. Within a quarter, you’ll get to experience more technologies then you probably have had throughout your entire career.

Putting the technology aside, quality is probably the second most critical learning you’ll be gaining. Every line of code in your pull-requests will undergo automated and manual code-reviews, ensuring adherence to our global quality standards. Very fast, you’ll learn how to comply with these global standards turning yourself to a true global remote worker playing at the major league and not just another engineer working for an off-shore dev-center.

Questions
and Answers

  • How can a Software Architect get promoted to new roles?

    If you are a top performer in your role then it is possible for you to apply to new roles and move up the career ladder. From a Software Architect role you may apply for a Chief Software Architect and eventually a Software Engineering Manager role. The possibilities exist and your career path is only dependent on your performance.

  • As a Software Architect, what are the opportunities to learn and work with new technologies?

    The learning responsibilities belong to you and are endless. Software Architects are expected to be versatile in various technologies and open to learning new tools and new technology stacks. Software Architects are also expected to be innovative and identify new technologies which can be leveraged to automate manual tasks and therefore freeing up time for more intelligent and interesting work.

  • What does a Software Architect day look like?

    A standard day in this position is typically comprised of the following tasks: a short daily check in with your manager to review blockers which you may have and request assistance when needed, a commitment to your manager on what you are going to achieve that day, potentially a short team meeting to review overall team progress, working on your actual tasks as set for the team.

    Once a week you can also expect to have a coaching session on your performance as well as demo your work to our internal or external clients.

  • I heard you have a tracking tool to monitor your teams, why do you use it?

    One of the key objectives of our productivity tracker is for it to be used by our Crossover partners to log time and eventually get paid. We also log information about our Crossover partners to understand what tools and applications they are using. This helps us to build work patterns of our people and identify best practices which we can share with all our teams. As an engineer, we expect that you would be spending at least 80% of your time in your relevant IDE with the remaining 20% spent on email, meetings and reviewing documents.

  • Do you use Agile?

    Like most organizations, we make use of subsets of Agile. The one key difference though is that our teams are highly specialized in the task they do. For example, we have a maintenance team whose only task is to fix bugs on our products. Rather than being product specialists they are process specialists.
