Software Engineer

We’re looking for generalist software engineers who are excited about travel, technology, and the prospect of improving the world by enabling global entrepreneurship. You’ll work closely with the founders on every part of the site, deploy daily, iterate quickly, and measure absolutely everything.

We don’t believe in breaking down engineering roles into “front-end” or “back-end” distinctions — if you’re working on the website, you’ll be expected to know (or learn) whatever it takes to get the job done. It's probably best if you’re familiar with Ruby, Python or another dynamic language (we use Ruby/Rails), as well as HTML, CSS, Javascript, and other core technologies of the web. But...we’re a startup, so being self-motivated and independent is probably more important than any particular technology on your resume.

Requirements:

  • A strong programming background.
  • Demonstrated expertise in at least one programming language (and preferably many).
  • Mastery of basic computer science concepts, such as data structures and algorithmic complexity.
  • You know how the web works, at least from HTTP to HTML.
  • Experience shipping real products.
  • You can get things done.

To apply, send a resume to jobs+engineering@vayable.com.
(things like GitHub profiles, open-source projects and links to sites you’ve created are great, too.)
