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 Backend team is focused on supporting and expanding the functionality of a customer-facing website while navigating a seasoned codebase. You'll report to our Lead Backend Engineer and sit in a growing team of backend developers. We're a flat team offering ownership, autonomy, and personal collaboration (development, project management, head of technology, marketing) throughout the organization.
We're rolling out a new integration with third-party providers which will greatly expand our network, eliminating technical debt, migrating to cloud, and overhauling frontend (we're using React.js). Also, we're developing predictive modeling — a technology yet to be applied to travel — building an entirely new and unique mobile experience, and integrating technology tied to marketing expansion.
Good extras are experience with:
As our social media thought leader, you will create and execute content strategies that grow our subscriber base and support product and advertising initiatives that drive bookings. The role is tasked with building modern cross-channel social media strategies and managing data-driven social media campaigns. As an editorial contributor, strong writing skills, a clear voice, and a unique point of view are required. The role demands creativity and personality as you research and produce innovative, cutting-edge travel and cultural content for Tablet's website.
This role will be one half of Tablet's marketing team and reports to the Head of Marketing. You will also work closely with our Editorial Director and collaborate with technology, data, product, and design teams.
Tablet is an intimate roll-up-your-sleeves environment where you'll be able to assist in other areas of marketing such as PR, partnerships, and more. You are not defined by this job title as we discover and investigate areas of potential customer growth.
