Senior Software Engineer, Backend

Published date Posted on Indeed on May 11, 2022 (13 d ago)

Skiplagged is a profitable travel-growth company that has unique technology to make it easier and more affordable for travelers to experience the world. We are a group of improvers and frequent travelers who recognized that there were no travel companies that truly worked for the consumers' benefit. We started going after that idea by developing a lightning-fast search portal that shows unique flight, hotel, and car deals that you can’t find anywhere else. While we are a small team, we’ve accomplished a lot. We’ve created a strong and highly profitable business, received some fantastic recognition and have a lot of great product momentum - but we’ve only just scratched the surface of our vision of becoming one of the world's largest travel sites. So if you believe in our mission and want to change how people can experience the world, come join us.

The role:

We are looking for a reliable and experienced Senior Backend Engineer to join our growing team in NYC. This is not the type of role where you will spend your days implementing a PMs Jira tickets, but rather you will work in close collaboration with our technical leaders (including our CEO/Founder) to identify, communicate and implement solutions on our backend to complex problems. This person will play a leading role in building and enhancing our backend systems, while also bringing in engineering best practices to the Skiplagged organization.

You will be a great fit for this role if:

  • You have 4 years of experience as a backend engineer with a minimum of 2 years of work with Python
  • You have Expert knowledge of Networking with experience in low latency networking
  • You have experience and a strong understanding of Load Balancing
  • You have solid Computer Science fundamentals
  • You want to utilize both your technical and relational skills to lead meaningful projects to completion
  • You are a self-starter and work well in an environment where engineers are expected to find solutions to complex problems


  • Competitive pay based on experience
  • Stock options in a fast growing, profitable company
  • Fully remote company
  • Paid time off
  • Company funded health/vision/dental insurance
  • International retreats (past trips have included Tokyo, Bali, Auckland!)
  • Employee travel discounts
  • Work / Life balance
