Full Stack Developer (AI & Chatbots)


We are looking for a Software Engineer to help us build our intelligent travel assistant, Hello Hipmunk. We have a small, close-knit team and unusually challenging work to do! Delightfully solving users’ travel planning needs is a big problem with almost every type of technical challenge. We care deeply about building a great product and are excited by being a leading player in the rapidly emerging area of chatbots. We value being a top-notch engineering organization, and have the same high standards with our code and people. We value learning and growth (and you not getting bored) so we invest regular time in pushing ourselves. For example, once a quarter we hold Foo Weeks - open time for you to spend time becoming a better engineer. Whether that be a new technology you want to learn, an online class you want to take, or a fun side project you want to work on, how you spend this week is up to you! We believe in championing our engineers' ideas - our chatbot started off as a Foo project. Our platform is built primarily with Python, PostgreSQL, and Redis. You would be responsible for helping build out our chatbot's technical platform and help us solve the challenges in AI-powered interfaces. You'll need to be able to ramp up quickly in order to roll out new features, and be comfortable with working to build solutions that address open-ended problems. Our chatbot team is regarded as leaders in innovation within our company and our industry - we are looking for creative, forward looking engineers who can turn their ideas into reality to join us. We hire diverse, well-rounded, communicative people whom we can envision being friends with and trusting. Our projects tend to be 1-2 engineers maximum, so trust and accountability is required for us to work. Trust also helps us keep processes & overhead to a minimum. So far, we've built a reasonably-sized, high-powered team and are always striving to be the best place to work we can be.
