PlacePass is the world’s largest marketplace for tours, attractions, and activities. We’re on a mission to transform the way people spend their time in-destination. We believe that every traveler deserves a great experience, whether they’re headed to Boston or Bangkok. The tour & activity space is the most dynamic and fast-changing part of the travel industry, and as a Series A startup backed by an amazing group of investors, we’re well-positioned to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

As a Cloud Solutions Architect you’ll work closely with our CTO to design performant, reusable services that enable our internal development teams to increase velocity, while maintaining performance and security. All while keeping a lens on automation and tooling to continue to help improve overall team performance.

Our API platform is a micro-service architecture built in Java/Spring behind a suite of web apps in Rails leveraging modern javascript frameworks like React. Our infrastructure is hosted in AWS natively and through Heroku’s PaaS offering for our UI, while leveraging Jenkins for our CI/CD pipeline. This environment will need continuous improvement and flexibility to keep pace with our challenging business objectives, so we view the role of solutions architect as critical for our continued success.

Your​ ​objectives:

  • Help establish, document, socialize and implement an enterprise vision for our cloud shared services
  • Deliver services to product development teams to enable required levels of security and performance, while maintaining best practices
  • Drive innovation and architect new product features and functionality, while ensuring code quality
  • Understand the tradeoffs between performance, scale, and business value
  • Enable successful product/feature delivery through close collaboration of cross-functional teams
  • Support the product team and planning process to deliver great products and ensure all deadlines and needs of the business are being met
  • Participate in architectural discussions to build confidence and maintain integrity in our cloud architecture
  • Provide technical and architectural alignment guidance to, and mentor team members as needed
  • Communicate risk and execution status to stakeholders, as needed

We​ ​want​ ​engineers:

  • Who have a passion for building
  • Who love solving problems
  • Who aren't afraid to wear many hats
  • Who aren't afraid to ask questions
  • Who are prepared to drink from a firehose, and still be thirsty
  • Who want to be challenged
  • Who love to share their knowledge with others, not lord it over them
  • Who can respect the eternal battle between business objectives and technical perfection
  • Who look at us as an opportunity, and not a job

Requirements:

  • BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field
  • 5+ years design & implementation experience with distributed applications
  • 2+ years architecting and implementing cloud infrastructure and topologies
  • 2+ years of experience in infrastructure or database architecture
  • A quick thinker with the ability to evaluate and leverage new technologies
  • Ability to deliver high-quality results under aggressive timelines and budgets

PlacePass​ ​Perks

  • Opportunity to work with an incredible team in a fast-growth environment
  • Tours and activities credit
  • Competitive salaries and health insurance
  • Catered weekly lunches
