    Why are we called kimkim?

    Soon after we launched in December 2015 with a different name (we were called Hive Travel back then) a traveler named Kim landed on our site. As luck would have it, she was paired up with one of our first specialists, named Kim.

    Kim and Kim hit it off instantly on our messaging system. Kim, our specialist who lives in Kathmandu Nepal, quickly put together a dream travel plan for Kim from San Diego, who was planning her 25th anniversary travel with her husband. Kim decided to book her entire travel on our platform and became our first customer! When we saw the two Kims being engaged in this passionate conversation, we couldn't help but think that we should do something more with this!

    We are looking for driven, curious, self-motivated engineers to join us and grow with us. You’ll join as the second engineer on the team with many opportunities to design new product features, improve code structure and best practices, strengthen development processes, and take on additional ownership and responsibilities.

    You should expect to work on all layers of the system, from designing the DB structure, business logic, views, UI, interactions, analytics, AB Tests, internal dashboards & tools, and more. This is a great opportunity to learn more about each of these areas.

    We are a small distributed team looking for people who are comfortable balancing several responsibilities.

    We are open to fully-remote colleagues in the US, or partially-remote based in the CA Bay Area (eventually meeting up 1-2 times a week based on location)
