Beekeeper – Why Work For Us?


How It All Started

Beekeeper was founded in 2012 by Cristian Grossmann (PhD in Engineering) and Flavio Pfaffhauser (MSc in Computer Science), two friends with one big idea. They were both passionate about connecting people through technology, so they created Spocal, a student social network. Users found the platform so intuitive and engaging, they started using it for everyday communication. Companies started contacting them with requests to use the platform for their business to adapt it to their needs and improve business processes. They quickly realized just how many businesses struggled due to a lack of high-quality, engaging tools for internal communication and knew they could fill that need with intuitive mobile technology. Now, Beekeeper has a strong presence in Silicon Valley and Europe, with customers in more than 130 different countries.

The experiences and growth from the early days of Beekeeper have taught us that taking smart risks and trying new things pays off. We are looking for bright, bold talent to build and sell the digital workplace of the future. Sounds like you

Ownership & Innovation

This is not your typical everyday job. You are the owner and creator of your limits. How your role at Beekeeper develops is up to you. As our company grows, you grow with it and have a direct impact on the product and internal processes.

Communication

We practice what we preach and use our own platform for internal communication. This is how we keep everyone strongly connected, aligned, and empowered to collaborate effectively across all offices.

Better Together

As an international company, there are over 20 different nationalities on our team. It doesn’t matter where you come from, it only matters where you want to go and that we are in this together. Open, honest, and consistent feedback is the key to our close-knit culture.

SO, WHAT ARE THE PERKS?

Health and Wellness

Fresh fruits, snacks, coffee… We promote healthy living via the internal programs we host such as Crossfit in Zurich and reimbursing gym memberships in the USA and Krakow.

Bee University & Bee-Hack Days

Bee-hacks are internal workshops in Zurich to share knowledge. Join this global initiative to help drive creativity and innovation!

Culture

We are a tight-knit hive and our interactive app brings us even closer, especially across international borders. We host boardgames nights in most office locations

Innovative and Curious Team

Join a global team of diverse thinker, innovative dreamers and curious people

Team Events & Outings

From Skiing in Switzerland to Wine tasting in Oakland, each of our Hives has its own unique team events. Join us and you can be doing all of these too

Bee Eqip

All Bee's are given a laptop (MacBook or Lenovo) upon joining, and Beekeeper provides compensation for employee phone bills in every location.

Bee Brave

Every time we fail we have a new opportunity to learn. Getting it wrong is a great way to find out if what you thought you knew was correct. As long as we keep learning and moving forward then we’re doing it right.

Bee Open

We are open to new ideas, constructive feedback, and different perspectives. These are the best drivers of innovation; they help us find the best solutions and propel us forward to continually improve.

Bring Out The Best In Each Other

We believe in the power, potential, and value of every. single. employee. Especially for our own team here at Beekeeper. It’s important to work together, bee positive, and inspire each other because we succeed when our team does.

Keep It Simple

This means not getting lost in processes, hypotheticals, and theories. It means making small changes and trying things out to see if they work before spending more time on a project that might not have the results we expect.

Bee Proactive

By definition, this means influence situations by making things happen rather than waiting and reacting after.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Beekeeper (San Francisco, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Zoom interview, then in-person interview with 3 different executive members. Everyone seemed nice and easy to talk to. Everyone there was young and had very start-up feel. The questions they asked were very basic questions.
