    What We Do

    Stayful transforms your hotel travel experience by streamlining everything from booking to check out. With just three taps on your smartphone, you'll get the best online rates on the best hotels for you. Then use our app for fingertip access to hotel services during your stay: check in, receive upgrades, order room service, request concierge assistance, schedule housekeeping, and even send your bill directly to your expense report service after your stay.

    How We Interview & Hire

    We start with an intro call to give you more information about the company and the role, learn more about your interests, and figure out if there is a mutual fit. The next step is a technical screen via video call and a shared code editor. An onsite is the last step in the process. You'll meet the rest of the engineering team during the onsite and also meet our CEO. The onsite interview is mostly spent writing code, feel free to bring your laptop setup with your preferred code writing environment. If we decide to move forward, we'll ask for 2-3 references that are most familiar with your past work. That's it!
