🛖 About Thatch
Our goal is to connect a global community of travelers and travel creators with tools that make it remarkably easy to curate, share and sell travel guides and planning services.
Our team consists of talented engineers and product thinkers from Google, Salesforce, Airbnb, Expedia and Looker.
The company has raised $5.2M from some of Silicon Valley's best early stage investors including Tim Connors at Pivot North (first investor in 6 $1B+ companies), Wave Capital (early operators at Airbnb that led data science and corp dev), Freestyle.vc (early investors in Patreon, Airtable), and Marc Randolph (co-founder of Netflix).
🎳 What we look for in all teammates
We don't care if you have a fancy degree. We care that you're naturally curious, have the ability to get up to speed quickly in different areas of your job, intuitively make connections across new concepts, and efficiently communicate your ideas and solutions for the problems at hand.
We care about working with good humans, which for us means people who are honest, reliable, generous, emotionally intelligent and have a healthy balance of humility and confidence.
Building things from scratch is difficult and full of uncertainty. You should enjoy working hard, solving problems, have a bias toward action and have the passion, perseverance and resourcefulness to stick with it when things get ambiguous or uncertain.
