ABOUT GORDIAN

Gordian is building the operating system for the airline industry and taking the friction out of travel. We started on an unsolved problem: empower travel sites to upsell seat selection, baggage and other upgrades. We’ve signed huge customers like Priceline, Hopper and Trip.com to our unique API.

Our traction speaks for itself.  With twenty-five people, we have annualized revenue of over $13m, backing from investors including Y Combinator, the ex-CEO of Skyscanner and the founders of Plaid, and our rapid growth is accelerating. 

We move fast, have a high impact culture, and work in a great hybrid-remote environment.  Get to know our culture and values here. Join our team to create the future of air travel.  

MISSION

You will lead our business with an emerging customer segment.  Gordian is structured into independent business teams with engineering, product, commercial and implementation functions and you will set the strategy, goals and objectives for your team.  You will be energized by the responsibility and demonstrate ownership over all aspects of your team, engaging directly alongside your team members.  You will be part of Gordian’s leadership team and be totally aligned with our values of Freedom, Impact and Ownership.
