Job Description

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 month as people all over the world move their events online. Every month, hundreds of thousands 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 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.

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 life-long learner. You're not afraid to dive into uncharted territory and are open to updating your opinions based on new information. You communicate thoughtfully and grasp ideas easily. 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.
