About the role

LOCATION: Bellevue, WA or Remote

JOB TYPE: Full-time


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.  


You’ll be responsible for owning high impact candidate searches for the engineers, product and technical project management roles that power our business.  You will also focus on identifying, attracting, and engaging with high caliber technical talent to build an evergreen pipeline.  While your core focus will be managing the recruiting process, you will be continuously improving the candidate experience, internal systems and processes, and employer branding, and working closely with key leaders throughout Gordian.



  • 4+ years of high-paced high bar recruiting experience
  • Technical recruiting domain expertise
  • Motivated by a fast-paced, high impact environment
  • Proactive and comfortable operating amidst ambiguity
  • Clear communicator with a bias to collaborate
  • High alignment with our values of Freedom, Impact, and Ownership

About the interview

Our vetting process is short. We do all of this over video calls:

  • Initial Call (30 min)
  • Technical Interview/Case Study (60 min)
  • CEO Interview (60 min)

Then we ask for a reference, visit with them and make a decision.

For candidates we want to make offers to, we set up a number of meetings so you can get a better sense of the team and company. We recognize that our lean interview process lets us move fast, it's helpful to meet more team members and hear more about the company when deciding if it is a right fit for you.
