An Audacious Mission

Today, coordinating business travel is complex because of competing interests, opaque industry practices, convoluted systems, and bad software.

But we believe that travel is a force-multiplier for growth.

Travel connects teams to new and existing co-workers, partners, and customers. It enables new opportunities, produces unexpected collaboration, and shifts perspectives. That’s why we focus daily on making travel more about why you’re going and less about how you’ll get there. 

Our mission is to make in-person collaboration effortless.

 
Who is Pana?
Our core values…
    • Make Safe Spaces
      • People are happiest and most effective when they can take risks without fear of being judged as stupid, negative, or disruptive. We encourage admitting mistakes, asking questions, and offering new ideas.
    • Say What You Mean
      • We openly share our thoughts and feelings because we believe that debate leads to better decisions. We care about seeing each other succeed, so we frequently give direct and specific positive and constructive feedback to each other.
    • Check Your Ego
      • We’re solving unknown and complex challenges, so we constantly challenge our own assumptions and beliefs. We engage others’ feedback early and often, because we believe that teams accomplish more than individuals.
The Role
We have an opportunity for a talented web engineer to develop the future of our suite of web products. As we're an early-stage company, our engineers have the unique opportunity to touch all parts of our product lifecycle.
 
As a full-stack javascript engineer, you will play an essential role in evolving our product, making a large impact on the entire company, from product to marketing to sales.
You will contribute to our web interface that thousands of customers use to book travel daily, and contribute to our online concierge dashboard—the tool that enables our travel team to message and take care of customers. You will also have the opportunity to help implement our marketing website, making it possible to message our product to potential customers.
 
While your primary role will be to architect, code, test, and ship web technology, you will also be involved in brainstorming, designing, and prototyping evolutions of the product. You will get a chance to understand the core problems that we're solving at Pana, allowing you to better serve the user in your execution of our product strategy.
 
Finally, as a senior member of our engineering team, you’ll also be expected to demonstrate leadership in a key area of expertise and skill. In collaboration with others, you’ll set strategy and vision in your ownership area, and you’ll manage execution to deliver effective results.
 
In return, we offer full benefits, unlimited vacation time, a competitive salary, stock options, and a chance to change the face of travel.
 Responsibilities
  • Ship well-tested, secure, reliable, and maintainable code within committed timelines that delights product users
  • Support fellow engineers through peer code reviews and constructive discussions that concern architecture, data model, and feature implementation decisions.
  • Understand the reasoning behind key product and design decisions and contribute good solutions to implementation  and architecture discussions.
  • Be a great agile team member
  • Lead key initiatives to improve our product and team

The Typical Day
  • Writing code!
  • White-boarding the benefits and disadvantages of various approaches to an architecture decision.
  • Testing initial prototypes with the product team to solicit feedback and iterate on the next version.
  • Reviewing your code, architecture, and style decisions with other engineers.
 Requirements
  • Approximately 5 years of experience in an engineering role at a software company.
  • A solid background in one or more of the following: front-end web development, back-end development, API development, software engineering, product design, and product management.
  • Proficiency in one or more of the following: JavaScript, Backbone, Marionette or comparable JavaScript MVC framework.
  • A solid grasp on SQL or similar data query language.
  • Comfortability with developing against and contributing to a Node/Express.js backend.
  • A passion for learning and problem-solving
  • BA/BS or equivalent experience.
  • Ability to work in-person at our office in Denver (we're in RiNo!).
 Note: An offer of employment at Pana is contingent upon passing a background check. This does not include a credit check. All background investigations will be conducted in accordance with the Fair Credit in Reporting Act and other applicable state/local regulations.

An Insider's view of Pana

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Pana really encourages a strong work-life balance. I coach volleyball after work and I don’t feel any kind of pressure to give it up or to work while I’m out of office coaching or traveling with the team. We’re encouraged to spend our personal time on personal endeavors, and that helps me feel really present when I am at work.

Ryan

Sales Development Representative

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Right now we’re figuring out how to make trips go smoothly for guest travelers (candidates, medical professionals, etc.) who don’t know what policies they are meant to follow, or have an easy way to pay for/ expense travel costs. Figuring out how to mask the complexity of travel in order to make it super simple is incredibly interesting to tackle.

Kim

Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Pana’s rapid growth has challenged me to learn more and faster than I ever imagined. The projects I’ve helped lead have made me feel like I’m having a real impact on Pana’s future. Everyone at the company shares a common goal and we’re working together to reach it, this has given my work meaning and made me invested in my future with Pana.

Kendall

Implementation Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We build idea meritocracies, where solutions come from anyone, no matter their title. We have processes, such as our daily Product Forum, where anyone can bring feedback/ideas (with well-justified arguments). We also hire for intellectual honesty—the ability to debate ideas on the merits of their reasoning, not because you want to be right.

Devon

CEO

How does the company support your career growth?

Pana has a really supportive and transparent culture. I’m not only allowed to make mistakes, but when I do, there’s support in place for me to recover and learn from them. We know what the company goals are and this makes it easier to know what to focus on to help achieve them. Plus, there’s always direct feedback about how I can grow with Pana.
