Join Our Team

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:

About Our Engineering Team

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.

Head of Marketing - NYC

Working with our co-founders (CEO & CCO) our Head of Marketing will sit on our management team and play a critical role in helping achieve our aggressive growth objectives through combined performance and brand marketing strategies across all channels including editorial.
