Senior Developer - Tab

Tab helps tourist businesses take bookings and get paid.

We make tools for places like hostels, boutique hotels, dive schools and surf lodges that simplify their lives, help them compete with bigger outfits and make their customers happy! Our goal is to boost local tourism, while helping backpackers and independent travellers make the most of their precious time abroad.

Our experienced team have backgrounds in startups and finance and founded Tab whilst in Y Combinator in 2015.

We are looking for a senior software developer who wants to join an early stage startup at an exciting point. This will be a versatile role, mixing hands-on software development and team leadership as the company continues to grow.

The ideal candidate will want to work directly with the founders to define their own job and take charge of where their position goes in the future.

You will be a key contributor to:

  • architectural planning (inc. security & data)
  • product design
  • improving development methodology
  • future technical recruitment

Currently, we write Python, Java, Swift and JavaScript (with React & React Native), on mobile and on the web, but this is open to change for the right reasons. We work with Unix, git, Postgres and Redis, and take a pragmatic view of choice of technologies.

Ideally, you have over five years of software development experience across a variety of platforms and have worked in a significant team leadership position before.

What is the company working on?

  • Tools for small business owners that really care about what they do, and the travellers they meet
  • Cross-platform development, on the web and across a big range of mobile devices
  • The next generation of fraud detection, focussing on the specific issues of the travel market
  • Reliable systems that have to work all over the world 24/7
  • Scaling for expansion!

What will you get?

A competitive salary, plus generous equity in a YC-backed startup, flexible hours and the freedom to make a big impact, quickly.
