Job description

About the role

Join a brand new, motivated team of four to develop algorithms that generate Tours users can take as templates for their outdoor adventures. With our extensive utilization of user-generated content, we extract and distill the knowledge of the outdoor community to create these templates algorithmically. We’re leading the field with our novel approach and with your help we’ll take it to the next level.

Do you like to submerge yourself in difficult problems (and this is really difficult, we promise) and find simple and elegant solutions? Can’t wait to prototype and benchmark them with alternative solutions? Are you not content until you’ve implemented an idea and shipped it to users? If this sounds like you then you’ll thrive in our team.

In this role, your work will be central to helping millions of people find an unforgettable adventure in the great outdoors.
