Company Description
Crossover was founded in 2014 with the belief that a global shift towards remote working is not only inevitable, but better for everyone. Companies benefit because it enables them to hire the best people in the world, not the best people who live nearby. And workers benefit because it makes silicon valley jobs (and pay) accessible from anywhere as well as reclaiming the time they waste every day commuting to the office.
We've recruited over 4,000 rockstars in more than 130 countries. Everyone has their own Crossover story What will yours be?
