Founded in 1996, smarTours has a mission to enable amazing trips around the world for our customers. We operate group tours to international destinations at competitive prices making them accessible to a wide audience. While smarTours has been operating as a very successful business for over 26 years, we were affected by the global pandemic as all travel was shut down worldwide. During this time, smarTours has taken the opportunity to rebuild the company with a technology focus from the ground up, operating much more like a new startup and with a brand new team.
Previously a NYC-based company, smarTours is now fully remote due to the pandemic and has no plan to return to an office environment. Therefore this is a fully remote position (US only) that operates on the Eastern Time zone.
We have two separate technology stacks that this position will likely interface with. The primary one is our centralized database system. This is a PostgreSQL database that uses custom code (in PHP) to pull data from various XML/JSON APIs as well as direct database access into a centralized location. We use Metabase on that system to perform data analysis tasks. Our website/application infrastructure itself is built on WordPress with custom PHP/JS code in theme & plugins communicating with multiple XML/JSON APIs to manage all business information.
Note: At this point in time, all candidates for this role must be authorized to work in the U.S. without need of visa sponsorship.
This full-time role will report directly to the Director of Engineering & Technology (CTO) and work alongside a team of 3-5 other developers, however this position will functionally support all areas of the business and therefore work directly with Operations, Customer Experience, Tour Supply, and Finance in order to support various business needs.
The duties of this position will be split into four main areas of focus:
