About the role

LOCATION: Bellevue, WA or Remote JOB TYPE: Full-time

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 the accounting team to deliver accurate financial information, provide live business insights, and help us build and scale our finance capabilities as we rapidly expand. You will manage individual contributors covering AP/AR and other critical processes as well as external accounting, audit and tax firms, and lead our first audit. In addition, you will help develop our modern finance tech stack. You will have freedom to design and implement policies and processes spanning corporate accounting, financial reporting, audit and tax, and cash flow management. The primary impact of this role is accelerating business growth by delivering smooth and dependable finance operations that support a high volume of new customer and product launches.

HYBRID REMOTE ENVIRONMENT We have a system for hybrid work called 7+1. Read about it here. Our remote teammates travel to Bellevue, WA for a full week once every two months. We think it combines the best of remote and in person environments and it requires everyone not working from Bellevue to travel 6x per year.

Technology

Our core services are built in Python, Flask, Postgres, with Redis on the backend and React on the front end. We have some services in Node, Express, Vue, and MongoDB. We deploy on Heroku, Netlify, and AWS. Some interesting problems we're solving:

  • Tracking millions of dollars of complex financial flows between travel companies and airlines
  • Scalability - our monthly growth rates require us to continually think and make technology decisions against an ever increasing number of users, partners, and API requests
  • Expanding the number of products we offer, building in-house ancillary products from end to end
  • Anomaly detection across airline/travel website pairs. Many times we tell airlines they are down before they know
  • Data modeling to provide a simple, clean API format across 140 airlines' different product sets.
