Revolutionising the way travellers discover, plan and book a trip
This is a London-based role, and cannot be done remotely
At Tab we've built a payments platform for independent tourism businesses off the beaten track, capable of handling thousands of payments an hour across 100 currencies, in real-time, with near-zero downtime — backed by Python + Flask + Postgres.
We're also building a direct-booking platform and traveller-focused discovery platform in Svelte + Django, with over 100,000 tourism businesses listed so far.
We are now operating profitably and sustainably, after successfully weathering the travel slump during COVID. That means we’re ready to build up the team as we continue to grow revenue.

At Tab, we’re revolutionising the way travellers discover, plan and book a trip.
The Guide lets travellers find and book anywhere — with helpful recommendations from friends & local experts, rather than bland listings with endless reviews. Planning your trip should be a joy, not a chore! We help people to travel responsibly, by booking direct instead of using traditional booking sites. Travellers get the best price and they help local businesses avoid unnecessary fees.
Travel experts, content creators and the friends you always ask for recommendations can use The Guide to showcase their favourite places to stay and things to do. When you book one of their recommendations, you’ll get a discount from the business and they receive bonus credit to say thanks.
The Tab platform gives independent tourism businesses the tools to improve their online presence, be discovered, take direct bookings — and also to take payments. Our payment platform is uniquely designed for tourism businesses, handling over 100 currencies natively, and every payment type securely and easily.
As travel returns after a difficult period, it’s time for a fresh approach. That’s why we’re building a social commerce platform for tourism — helping to spread the benefits of tourism far and wide, and helping travellers make the most of their precious time abroad.
We're headquartered in London, and backed by Y Combinator (the investors behind Airbnb, Dropbox and Stripe).
