ABOUT GORDIAN

Gordian is building the operating system for the airline industry and taking the friction out of travel. We started on an unsolved problem: empower travel sites to upsell seat selection, baggage and other upgrades. We’ve signed huge customers like Priceline, Hopper and Trip.com to our unique API.

Our traction speaks for itself.  With twenty-five people, we have annualized revenue of over $13m, backing from investors including Y Combinator, the ex-CEO of Skyscanner and the founders of Plaid, and our rapid growth is accelerating. 

We move fast, have a high impact culture, and work in a great hybrid-remote environment.  Get to know our culture and values <u>here</u>. Join our team to create the future of air travel.  

MISSION

We’re looking for a Backend Engineer to architect, build and scale APIs and our data layer, and solve customer problems with code on a daily basis to deliver our services to more than one million passengers per day. You’ll be an integral part of a fast-moving, extremely focused product team where you will be able to lead large and impactful projects. We hold each other to high expectations and empower everyone to create a massive impact from day one.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • 2+ years of software engineering experience, with any modern tech stack (we use Python/Postgres/React)

  • Ability to understand and articulate the customer needs your work addresses

  • Interest in working with customers directly to define solutions

  • Proven ability to manage high complexity projects

  • Motivated by a fast-paced, high impact environment

  • Proactive and comfortable operating amidst ambiguity

HYBRID REMOTE ENVIRONMENT

We have a system for hybrid work called 7+1.  Read about it <u>here</u>.  Our remote teammates travel to Bellevue, WA for a full week once every two months.  We think it combines the best of remote and in person environments and it requires everyone not working from Bellevue to travel 6x per year.
