In addition to our native apps, we also have a mobile web app and responsive desktop website that serve as initial touch points for new customers and partners. In this role you will have primary responsibility over the desktop website, and also work in concert with the existing mobile web team to further develop and integrate the two sites.

WITHIN 1 MONTH, YOU WILL:

  • Familiarize yourself with our CDN infrastructure and various web components
  • Build and deploy a major redesign of our core content pages

WITHIN 3 MONTHS, YOU WILL:

  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the company to launch new content pages

  • Have primary ownership over both the front-end and back-end of our content website
  • Propose and implement architectural changes to the way the various components of our website fit together to meet evolving content strategy and scaling needs
  • Work with a broad array of front-end and back-end technologies powering various areas of our website

WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THIS ROLE:

  • Must have at least 1 year of experience using WordPress as a CMS
  • Extensive experience as a full-stack web developer in at least two languages/frameworks
  • Experience with multiple web development paradigms, both back-end rendered and single-page apps, and understand the tradeoffs between them for optimal architecture
  • Familiarity and interest in working with React / Redux on the front-end
  • Good understanding of HTTP fundamentals and CDNs
  • Have a generalist mentality and desire to work with a variety of technologies
  • Pragmatic and creative thinking about how to put technical solutions together in a diverse environment
  • An interest in the broader operational picture of the company besides just the engineering piece
  • Bonus points for specific experience with: Webpack, Node, Ruby/Rails, Varnish, MySQL / PostgreSQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, Ansible, Packer, or Terraform

WHAT YOU’LL GET FROM US:

  • An official Best Places to Work as listed in the SF Business Times (2 years running!)
  • The opportunity to define mobile commerce and change the way people book travel
  • A people-focused organization dedicated to making sure you're challenged, learning, growing, and recognized for all your great work
  • The camaraderie of a driven, agile team that is building something disruptive
  • A beautiful workspace at Market & 5th St
  • Excellent health, dental, vision and 401k plans, and stock options too
  • Support in creating clear professional goals that drive you to do your best work
  • An environment in which you can learn skills and new processes to further your career
  • Fun stuff — quarterly travel stipend, flexible time off, catered meals, subsidized cell phone plans and fitness memberships, access to our very own hotel-inspired full bar, and the opportunity to spin the HT Roulette wheel to win a spontaneous weekend getaway!

We are on a mission to radically transform hotel bookings. Doing this requires us to think differently and to question conventional approaches, therefore it’s essential to have a diverse team of the very best people with all types of backgrounds and experiences to bring the best ideas to life. We are committed to maintaining an environment where all of our team members have the opportunity to be heard, to make an impact and to do the best work of their lives.
