Headquarters: New York URL:
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 25 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.
As we push forward in the last stretches of finalizing our new technology infrastructure, we are looking to expand the engineering team to evolve and enhance the ever-growing needs of travelers as vaccines are rolled out and people become excited to get out and travel again.
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 these are fully remote positions (US only) that operate on the Eastern Time zone.
Our entire infrastructure is based around WordPress with custom PHP/JS code in theme & plugins that communicate with various 3rd party APIs using XML & JSON to manage all business information. Candidates who are well versed in creating custom PHP code, while focusing on doing things the "WordPress Way", will be highly preferred.
We are hiring for multiple engineer positions and are flexible to bring in people with varying experience levels. These roles will report directly to the Director of Engineering & Technology (DET). One hire will hopefully be at the more Senior/Lead position and assume some leadership & architect roles within the engineering team. Responsibilities can include:
Additional Preferred Qualifications
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.
smarTours is an equal opportunity employer and offers:
