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 Software Engineer, you’ll help build, ship, and iterate amazing travel products. You’ll play an active role in designing and developing new features and improvements, and you’ll directly shape the next generation of our user interface. You’ll be part of a passionate, dynamic team committed to collaboration and mentorship. You’ll have plenty of challenges, room to apply your ideas, and significant growth opportunities.

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.

●  Who can respect the eternal battle between business objectives and technical perfection
