Who is Crossover?
Crossover connects talent from around the globe with companies who are looking to hire only the best. We have more than 1850+ people from 98 different countries working full time (40 hrs/wk) for our clients and we are growing quickly as we have more customer demand than we can find good people.
We are also a mission-driven company. In other words, we believe in providing people with high-paying, long-term jobs/careers. We are not a marketplace in which companies are trying to hire someone at bottom basement rates for temporary work.
Finding reliable, fairly compensated freelance or contract work can be a challenge. And sifting through sites filled with short-term gigs listed at rock-bottom rates is discouraging.
You’re worth more than that. At Crossover, we understand that you’re looking for long-term contracts and competitive compensation. And that’s just what we offer to candidates who have the skills and experience to stand out and the willingness to complete our rigorous evaluation process.
All of our jobs are location-independent, intended to be multi-year in duration, and offer high rates by U.S. standards. We match talented people with great companies for long-term, remote working relationships that are a win-win for everyone.
Only the Best of the Best
Talent isn’t determined by geography, and your career path shouldn’t be either. That’s why we look worldwide for candidates who have the skills, determination, and drive to work with some of the best businesses out there. We match our Fortune 1000 clients with only the most highly qualified talent.
Is that you? Our application process is rigorous, but if you take the time to go through the qualification steps and prove your skills, your chances of being hired increase dramatically. Why? Instead of being one of hundreds or even thousands of candidates as you would in a traditional application process, you’ll be one of five qualified applicants after passing the evaluation — and the company looking to hire is likely to select all five of you as a team.
So if you’re the best of the best and are willing to demonstrate your skills, we want you to join our global talent network. You’ll be in good company.

How Can You Apply For a Job at Crossover?
The businesses we represent are willing to offer top rates for top talent, but often receive thousands of resumes for any given role. We’ve created a qualification process that helps us find the very best candidates for each position. Are you up for the challenge?
It won’t be easy — the process narrows down the pool of applicants to the top 1% of candidates — but if you make the cut, you’re very likely to receive an offer.
These are the steps you’ll go through as part of the qualification process:
The whole process generally lasts from one to three weeks. We understand that it’s a lot to ask for you to take time out of your schedule to go through this process, and we respect your time. By asking you to invest time in us, we will return the favor and invest in you with opportunities for skills development and career advancement.
The biggest benefit of the Crossover testing and hiring process is that you can do it on your own schedule. No more missing work to run to an interview; you can complete each step of the process from home, when you have availability.
