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.
As a QA Automation Engineer you'll report to our Project Manager and provide automation expertise in our QA team of two. You'll touch every product initiative across desktop and mobile. This is a highly visible role offering freedom and autonomy as you work directly with developers, designers, and project management throughout the development and testing process.
The backend team is tackling a third party integration which will more than quadruple our inventory using python, the frontend team is overhauling the frontend using react.js, and the mobile team is building an entirely new app experience using swift. You'll identify and document bugs, maintain and expand our Selenium and xcode UI testing suites, and improve our continuous integration scheme at the speed of feature development. Though focused on automation, manual testing is expected as needed.
Nice to have:
