About Hipmunk

Founded in 2010 and based in San Francisco, CA, Hipmunk offers customers the fastest, easiest way to plan travel. The site and mobile apps save you time by comparing top travel sites so you don't have to. The unique display makes it easy to visually compare results and choose what's best for you. Hipmunk offers the most comprehensive travel search, bringing in travel options ranging from commercial flights to trains to charter flights and accommodations ranging from large hotels to home and apartments rentals through Airbnb and Homeaway.

We are looking for well-rounded engineers to join us. We have a close-knit, high-standards team with unusually challenging work to do! We make beautiful experiences at scale, and have lots of data to dig through. We value being a top-notch engineering organization with the best people and environment, and take pride in our code. We focus on getting stuff done and enabling you to do your best work ever.

We were acquired by Concur in 2016, but we're still an independent company (about 50 people) with our own engineering organization and product development process.

Perks
  • Belief and trust in you. We build our company with the mindset that the best way to succeed is to hire great people like you and enable them to do their best work. As such we're high on merit and low on risk-avoiding processes. We provide things like flexible work schedules + an open vacation policy + your own company card so you can take care of the things you need to to get the job done.
  • Big and audacious challenges (Disrupting the travel industry and dramatically changing the customer experience is fun! Consumer scale & big data ... more fun!).
  • Friends and family 1st. Aside from having the energy almost inherent in SF-based startups we value an open + trusting + collaborative + fun culture. We're a team of friends ... assuming you like to hang out with your friends.
  • Growth. Bored people are unproductive or quitting people. We support training + career development + time to be better engineers (foo Fridays and Nerd Training).
  • Happy tummy - lunches Mon-Weds plus a fully stocked pantry with breakfast + snacks (healthy and unhealthy).
  • Tools - your choice of computer + peripherals. Usually a loaded Macbook Pro w/ Retina along with a Cinema display but if you really wanted a Lenovo you could get that instead.
