About The Company
Streem started like many startups - out of pure passion and necessity. Co-Founders, Ryan (CEO) and Sean (CTO), began building the business nights and weekends in 2017. Both had several experiences needing a product like Streem, and were sick and tired of all the inefficiencies in the home services market. Since then, we've been growing the product and the team to meet our high goals and expectations, both from ourselves and our customers.
We are backed by a 1.5 billion dollar home services company but are a true Portland startup.
Streem has been nominated for (and won) a handful of awards in its short life time:
Rated #2 Hottest Tech Startup Globally in 2019 by Crunchbase
2019 OEN Development Stage Company of the Year (winner)
2018 OEN Game Changer Award (winner)
Best App award at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain (winner)
TAO Startup of the Year, Pre-Revenue (finalist)
Best Consumer App, Augmented World Expo (finalist)
Our office is located on the 11th floor on 3rd and Alder in downtown Portland, and we love to walk to the food carts for lunch. Learn more at http://streem.pro at http://streem.pro/
Diversity, equality, and inclusion work. Streem prioritizes building a work environment and culture that works well for employees of every race, gender, sexual orientation, size, disability, and background. Ask us how!
No silos, no egos. Streem values ideas, interdisciplinary collaboration, and open exchange of constructive feedback. To make this safe for everyone, we foster a culture of trust and respect rather than competition between employees. If you’ve got skills or interests outside what we mentioned in our listing, we want to know about them!
Week-long 10% time. Once a quarter, our whole team sets aside the strategic roadmap and spends a week on whatever we each think is important. Doing this together encourages big ideas and cross-department team-ups, and it’s a lot of fun.
Enjoy your work life; keep your home life. We’ve got a fun office with free snacks, cold brew, and beer on tap for our Demo Day Fridays. Streemers spend time together in a lunch-hour book club and while supporting our neighborhood’s wealth of great restaurants and cart pods. At the end of the day, we go home. Our co-founders both have young children and lead by example through avoiding crunch and exercising our unlimited PTO policy.
You probably spend the majority of your time coding at your desk, so we think it is important for you to know how that will feel.
Each person has a super widescreen external monitor
Everyone uses new MacBook Pros
Our desks are glass, so you can use whiteboard markers to jot ideas
All desks are electronic sit-stand desks
At your 1-year anniversary, you'll receive a personalized bobblehead of you wearing some Streem swag, so we hope that is on your desk as well :-)
