Company STATISTICS



Who we look for

We care deeply about finding people who question assumptions, have strong judgment, execute fast, take ownership, act responsibly and help the team advance.

The INTERVIEW PROCESS

The desire to change company can come from different places: Regardless of where it comes from, making a switch is an overwhelming process. Even when you find something you like, going through the hiring process is stressful. We think that making this process transparent will help you focus on yourself and deliver your best performance.

The interview process is about getting to know each other: You’ll learn about Cross River and we’ll learn about your background, what motivates your choices and how you solve problems. We consider our team our primary strength and as we scale, we want to hire fairly and bring in different perspectives and experiences.

We do our best to keep candidates informed, we try to keep our interview process to three weeks or less. If we decide that you’re the best candidate for the role, your recruiter will reach out to you with an offer.

What we are LOOKING FOR

Role relevant experience:

We want to see if you have demonstrated relevant experience for the job or relevant skill set that can be transferred to this job (job descriptions articulate what’s needed).

Critical thinking:

You can frame a problem by articulating the problem clearly and putting it in context; you then develop a thoughtful solution to solving the critical issues.

Execution:

You can execute projects that require aligning multiple stakeholders in a third of the time.

Culture:

You work well with stakeholders, you help the team move forward by propelling your colleagues, and your addition to the team contributes to increasing its standards.

FAQs

Does a candidate need native experience in crypto?

The short answer is no. But we appreciate you are passionate for crypto given how novel it is. While not being a requirement, we appreciate when a candidate has past involvement in crypto. In other words, you should be able to answer the
question "why should crypto and blockchain even exist?"

What products is Cross River going to launch?

As you can imagine, the roadmap is confidential. The best way to see what we are going to do is to think about Cross River’s core offerings (Banking, Lending, Payments) and start by imagining what this offering would look like in crypto, as we
continue to build new technologies and financial products to propel the crypto space.

What kind of questions should a candidate expect during the interview process?

We will ask you questions about your experience, hypothetical situations, or problems we are currently working on. We won’t ask you brainteasers.

Who should I contact in case I have questions?

You should feel free to direct questions to your Cross River recruiter who will be your point of contact during and after the process.
