About us

At CrossEngage, our team of over 60 people works every day to help our clients grow their customer base into valuable relationships through our customer operating system. We are developing a seamlessly integrated customer data and prediction platform that intelligently plays to the strengths of first-party customer data and optimizes it through artificial intelligence and machine learning. In this way, we aim to help ensure that the diversity of brands in the marketplace continues to exist in the era of the platform economy.

About the role 

At CrossEngage we build high-performance, data-intensive solutions for our Customer Data and Prediction Platform and we are expanding our Data Management team. The team is responsible for developing and maintaining large batch / streaming data processing systems using event-driven algorithms that enable our clients to understand and segment their customer data.

Your responsibilities within the team are:

  • Design, develop and deploy web applications, microservices and APIs primarily using Java
  • Deliver testable, maintainable and high-quality code and take on operational responsibility for the components that you develop
  • Work with a supportive team to get things done with the right mix of quality and agility
  • Work with Cassandra, Elasticsearch, Kafka, MongoDB, Redis, Flink, Hadoop and other exciting technologies

About you

Do you feel that itch...

...if things are going just a bit too slow? We appreciate pioneers who find the right way to solve problems for the first time! push forward when it is uncomfortable to do so ? Yeah! Connect with relevant stakeholders and make things happen for our customers!

... to improve your craft everyday? We never settle with the status quo! takes too long to make real impact? We are a fast-paced and delivery-focused environment and love flexibility!

In a nutshell - we are looking for colleagues who want to continue shaping our respectful, inclusive and professional culture.

Is that you? Awesome! Keep on reading ;)

You are also a self-starting engineer with a deep desire to learn & previous experience developing data-intensive web applications from the ground up:

  • You have several years of experience in software development using Java technologies and frameworks
  • You know how to design and build web applications using microservice architecture
  • Distributed data stores and streaming applications (Cassandra, Kafka, Flink, Spark, or similar) aren’t new to you

If you already have experience with the following technologies that would be nice-to-have, but it’s not a must. We’d be more than happy to bring those closer to you while you work at CrossEngage:

  • Understanding of data modeling, algorithms and data transformation techniques
  • Experience with Elasticsearch (or Solr), Kubernetes and event-driven architectures
  • Experience in planning, designing, developing, managing, maintenance and support of applications on Cloud (GCP, or similar)
