Senior Software Engineer

| Greater Denver Area

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.

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.

An Insider's view of Pana

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.
