Role Description

WanderJaunt is building the future of hospitality by bringing the consistency and reliability of traditional hotels to the home sharing vacation rental industry. We provide end-to-end property management services to homeowners, and seamless travel experiences for our guests to create a world where everyone feels at home.

As an early engineer, you’ll have a say in everything from the product roadmap to engineering process to architecture decisions. Every day is different, and you’ll tackle problems ranging from managing IoT devices to optimizing our pricing infrastructure.

We're looking for someone who is entrepreneurial, a self-starter, and growth-oriented. You should be comfortable working across the entire stack, communicating with stakeholders, sharing your knowledge with the team and more.

Our Values

  • You pull together - You have excellent communication skills and you love working cross-functionally to solve problems that cut across software, people, process and real-world physics. You believe there’s no such thing as “someone else’s problem” and are willing to collaborate and problem solve anywhere you can.
  • You cut the fluff - You love getting honest feedback and you’re unafraid to voice your opinions even if they might be unpopular. You know that the only way we get better is by studying the fundamentals and you work tirelessly to get to ground truth.
  • You go full throttle - You’re all about impact and ownership. You act with urgency because you’re confident in your convictions and you’re comfortable being uncomfortable.
  • You dive deep - You love navigating your way through ambiguity and breaking through each barrier that stands in your way. You’re eager to expand your skill set and excited to craft your career path in a hyper-growth setting.

Job Responsibilities

  • Build the brains behind our entire internal operations - think of this as rebuilding all the functions of a hotel but w/ software and spread out over 100 square miles as opposed to 1 high-rise
  • Design and build scalable APIs to serve our platform
  • Compile and analyze data, processes, and codes to troubleshoot problems and identify areas for improvement.


  • B.S., M.S. or PhD. in Computer Science or equivalent
  • 2+ years of professional engineering experience
  • Strong knowledge of CS fundamental concepts,
  • Understanding of modern web technologies (REST APIs, Javascript Frameworks)

Preferred Qualifications

  • Familiarity with AWS or related technologies
  • Expertise w/ modern web frameworks (Django/Rails and Vue/React/Angular)
  • Experience working in an ops-tech company and distilling complex business problems into code

Our Tech Stack

Django + DRF + Postgres Celery w/ RabbitMQ VueJS
