Inside Crossover: a Q&A with Val Cavaliere
Meet Valeria. She’s a recruiting manager at Crossover.
Val leads our recruiting and database search teams and has been with the company since its founding. She has also been instrumental in developing our hiring tournament initiative.
After starting a family, she began looking for a remote job and found one at Google. While searching for a more challenging role, Val met Andy Tryba (Crossover’s founder and CEO) at the time he was launching the company and “immediately felt completely aligned to his vision.” Originally from Argentina, she is now based in southern Italy.
What are some of your day-to-day work activities?
I never get bored in this job. I like building teams and helping them be more productive. And Crossover’s tools help me in my everyday activities as a manager, collecting data that I can analyze and use to find the areas my teams can improve to increase productivity week after week.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Crossover?
That I can work and adapt my schedule around my family’s needs.
What are some of the challenges of working remotely?
Loneliness. Office habits, such as getting a coffee with your mates, is something that I miss a bit. But I stay connected with my teammates with Skype, Slack, Zoom, and also WhatsApp and Facebook.
What advice would you give someone interested in applying for a position with Crossover?
Apply now, demonstrate you deserve the job, and once hired, you won’t regret being part of this awesome family.
