About Tripnary

Tripnary is a seed-funded, an early stage travel startup based in Chicago. We are focused on building a disruptive mobile app that helps travelers save and organize the places they want to see and be ready for their next vacation. Tripnary can be best described as Pinterest travel boards meets Kayak. We want to eliminate the clutter of spreadsheets, bookmarks, emails, etc. that are currently used to document travel plans and provide an easy way to collect all the places you find in one app so you can instantly compare airfares to all your favorite destinations simultaneously with one tap! We have a slick mobile app with a jaw-dropping design that blows away everyone who sees it. We work out of 1871, the coolest co-working space for Chicago’s digital startups.

About the role

Tripnary is seeking a highly motivated visionary with experience in building mobile apps to join the team. As a partner, you will

  • Collaborate with the founders to refine and execute on the Tripnary vision.
  • Spearhead end-to-end development and participate in planning, architecture, design and implementation of a beautiful and intuitive travel app.
  • Guide the product roadmap and help deliver features that provide maximum value to Tripnary’s users.
  • Be a team player with an open mind possessing confidence to make important product-related decisions.

We promise exciting challenges, a broad range of experiences across a variety of projects and the chance to make a difference while working in a casual but fast-paced setting.
