A bit about us:
Streem started like many startups - out of passion and necessity. Co-Founders, Ryan Fink (CEO) and Sean Adkinson (CTO) began building the business nights and weekends in 2017. Since then, we've been growing the product and the team to meet our high goals and expectations, both for ourselves and our customers. This has allowed us to bring on a very talented team in all positions across the company. Streem was most recently acquired by Frontdoor (FTDR) in December 2019.
Streem has won a handful of awards in its short lifetime:
Best App award at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain
OEN Game Changer Award
OEN Development Stage Award
PBJ Innovation Award
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award
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.

We are excited to be growing our team and look forward to hearing from you! Please be sure to include any additional materials you would like in your response.
