Who We Are

PlacePass is a team of entrepreneurs, travelers, and tech geeks. Our mission is helping people find and book great things to do in any destination. We’re building technology to transform the way people travel.

We got our start in February 2016 (there’s nothing like a cold Boston winter to inspire serious wanderlust) and we’ve been growing ever since. In addition to building PlacePass.com, we’re working with Marriott to power a tour and activity booking solution for their guests .

We’re a small but mighty group of travel and tech enthusiasts who can’t believe we get paid to help people discover great experiences. We play foosball. We travel. We’ve been known to throw paint balloons at each other. We code like crazy. Sound like something you could get behind? Let’s chat.
