About CrewFire

CrewFire is software solution that is bringing a powerful and innovative new approach to influencer, social media, and referral marketing, built for today’s digitally native consumer brands.

We’re a small, entrepreneurial team that’s moving fast and growing quickly. Only 3 months in (and with just a team of 2!), we already have early traction with some exciting customers ranging from entertainment, technology, fashion, snack foods, and more.

CrewFire is lead by UMD graduate Alan VanToai (Class of 2010). Alan is a Vietnamese-American entrepreneur currently based in Bethesda, MD (though we’re normally fully remote - Alan just got back from living in Vietnam for the last 5 years!)

Alan and his teams have successfully launched and sold 3 other software startups over the past 8 years.

This is an exciting opportunity to get in at the ground floor of a fast-paced, high-growth startup launching an awesome product into one of the most exciting and dynamic industries around today.

You will learn a lot, do awesome work, have a lot of fun, and probably get a lot of free stuff - all alongside a team of A players.
