We have an opportunity for a talented web engineer to develop the future of our suite of web products. As we're an early-stage company, our engineers have the unique opportunity to touch all parts of our product lifecycle.
You will contribute to our web interface that thousands of customers use to book travel daily, and contribute to our online concierge dashboard—the tool that enables our travel team to message and take care of customers. You will also have the opportunity to help implement our marketing website, making it possible to message our product to potential customers.
While your primary role will be to architect, code, test, and ship web technology, you will also be involved in brainstorming, designing, and prototyping evolutions of the product. You will get a chance to understand the core problems that we're solving at Pana, allowing you to better serve the user in your execution of our product strategy.
Finally, as a senior member of our engineering team, you’ll also be expected to demonstrate leadership in a key area of expertise and skill. In collaboration with others, you’ll set strategy and vision in your ownership area, and you’ll manage execution to deliver effective results.
In return, we offer full benefits, unlimited vacation time, a competitive salary, stock options, and a chance to change the face of travel.
What We Value
Any chance you get you’ll jump at the opportunity to venture outside of your local bubble. When you hear LAX, LGA or MIA you picture the destinations that these airports unlock.
You enjoy speaking about travel, food and life. When writing you are both eloquent and informative. In person, you are articulate about your perspective, feelings, and opinions.
You are empathetic and helpful.
You voluntarily step up when others are struggling, even if the problem is not in your area of expertise. “Patience” is your middle name. You are happy when you have made others succeed.
You are a stickler for minor grammatical errors—seeing comma splice errors in print makes you cringe, and you are never satisfied with a first draft.
You can use Google to learn anything and everything except for rocket science and brain surgery. You don’t need to be an official “travel agent,” nor do you have to have past experience working in the travel industry, but you are curious and willing to learn.
