We are an ambitious, well-funded startup with plans to change a $1 trillion-dollar global industry. This is no ordinary startup. We have a proven management team that has done it before, done it before together, and done it before in the travel industry. The company is overflowing with fiercely intelligent people who have tons of energy and an upbeat view of the future. We all act like owners and we get a huge kick out doing great work and doing it fast. We like it even more when we come up with a fresh way to solve a problem. Above all, we are devoted to solving customer problems, because that’s at the center of everything we do.
ABOUT OUR TECH STACK
We’re beyond passionate about using cutting-edge technologies. We’ve implemented a microservices cloud (AWS) based tech stack that allows for rapid iteration and scaling. We use React and Material UI on the frontend, mostly Node.js
with Typescript on the backend, Go for anything performance heavy, MySQL as our main datastore and NoSQL products for certain domain-specific datastores.
While we have preferences as an organization for certain technologies, our microservices-based architecture allows us to experiment with new tech and always pick the right tools for the job if it is called for. Our devops setup allows us to quickly stand up / burn down services, frontends and datastores as business needs change. In short the theme of our tech stack is flexibility. We can quickly stand up things, change them, and scale them up or down as our requirements change.
We are positive, passionate, playful, and always pushing to be better. Our team is a hodgepodge of challenge seekers, travel gurus, startup junkies, and data-miners who see the big picture.
