A bit about us:

Streem was acquired by Frontdoor (FTDR) in December 2019. Co-Founders Ryan Fink (CEO) and Sean Adkinson (CTO) began building the business in 2017 and continue to create game-changing technologies, lead the industry narrative and foster a workplace where people are happy to go to work every day.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion:

Streem prioritizes building a work environment and culture that works well for employees of every race, gender, sexual orientation, size, disability, and background.

No silos, no egos:

Streem values ideas, interdisciplinary collaboration, and an 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 entire team sets aside the strategic roadmap and spends a week on whatever we 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:

Since the emergence of Covid-19, Streem has transitioned to a fully remote work environment. We provide monitors and other basics to make your WFH life easier. During these times, we keep our Streem culture healthy with regular virtual get-togethers and Friday demo days. Streemers spend time together in a lunch-hour book club and other fun (remote) team activities. We also value our personal time and understand the complexities of working from home. Our co-founders both have young children and lead by example by avoiding crunch time and exercising our unlimited PTO policy.
