We're building an all-star team at Tablet, based around an employee-first approach — simply put, we want Tablet to be a great place to work. We've grown exponentially, our business has grown more complex, and it's agile, fast-moving talent that will ensure we remain on the path to growth. You'll be a good fit if you're self-directed, self-motivated, and you do better work when you're trusted with a healthy amount of freedom and flexibility. We're located in Union Square, NYC.
Our brand is built on authenticity and a healthy dose of irreverence, but balanced, at all times, by consistency and discipline. The first two keep us from being boring, while the last two keep us from losing our focus. We know there's more to life than travel — but at the same time, we recognize that an extraordinary travel experience has the potential to touch just about every aspect of our lives.
We are currently looking for:
No recruiters, please. We do not work with 3rd parties for placement. Don't see anything that matches your expertise? Feel free to email us and tell us what your expertise is.
Our developers constantly challenge one another to improve their craft. We mean this seriously. To thrive in our environment you'll need to be smart, capable and independent, with a hunger for autonomy and for the responsibility that comes with it. We hire developers with great long-term potential and then enable them to achieve it. You'll spend your days using the flexibility of UNIX to produce simple solutions to complex business problems. The dress code is casual, the floor plan is open, and the upside is unlimited.
We're developing predictive modeling — a technology yet to be applied to travel — tackling a third party integration which will more than quadruple our inventory, building an entirely new and unique mobile experience, and integrating technology tied to marketing expansion. Tablet's Head of Technology is tasked with bringing predictability to development, improving product-to-market speed, and developing long-term maintainable and scalable systems. Additionally, the Head of Technology will research technologies and practices that push Tablet's competitive edge.
As Tablet's Head of Technology, you'll represent a growing cross functional technology practice of fifteen including lead engineers. The role reports to the CEO and sits on Tablet's executive team. You'll contribute the technical perspective at the executive level, translate company vision into an executable technical roadmap, and prioritize milestones with your team leads. You'll make sure that priorities of the technology team and priorities of the company are aligned.
As a leader you'll mentor down to the individual contributor level. As a manager you'll maintain an informed and collaborative environment. As a technologist you'll architect our systems to minimize technical debt.
Our Frontend team is focused on building an entirely new app while navigating a seasoned codebase. We're a flat team offering ownership, autonomy, and personal collaboration (design, development, project management, head of technology) throughout the organization.
We're cleaning up technical debt and depreciated code (overhauling pages with react.js), developing a comprehensive frontend testing suite and replacing our internal publishing system.
The ideal candidate would be comfortable working in a multi-tiered environment which we're planning to evolve into a micro-service / web component based architecture.
Nice to Have:
