Job Description

Sr. Software Engineer
NYC or Tri-State Area

Who We Are
We created Getaway to give people time, space, and permission to be off. Our tiny cabins in nature provide a break from the city, technology, and work, so that guests can recharge and reconnect to who and what matters most.

Our Outposts are located just 2 hours outside of major cities and are reserved by the night. We currently have 13 Outposts across the country, outside of Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Portland, and Washington, DC.

The Getaway Technology team is looking for someone with 3+ years of software development experience, who believes in our mission to enable people to be off in nature. This person is a product-minded engineer with a strong sense of ownership who thrives in a small team. While currently fully remote, we would prefer candidates in the NY Metro area for possible future work from the office and meetups.

You Will

  • Support the team in front end or back end technical design and development requirements
  • Build new features for and maintain the current functionality of our website and internal tools, written with a React/SASS front end, Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL back end
  • Collaborate with cross-functional team members from Design, Marketing and Operations to deliver against quarterly and annual objectives 
  • Ensure the website is serving our customers well and performing to our expectations (we’re hosted on Heroku and Netlify)
  • Continue to find efficiencies and ways to leverage software to improve our team’s workflows and the way we do business

Key Qualifications

  • 3+ years of software development experience 
  • Demonstrable experience in having deployed applications commercially into production

    • Have experience using monitoring and metrics to support KPIs and performance of APIs

    • Have experience with Looker


  • This position is full-time. We are currently remote, most of the team are based in NY 
  • Comprehensive medical, dental and vision plans, largely funded by the Company
  • 10 Paid Holidays
  • 12 Getadays (think 3 day weekends once a month—time for you to connect with what is important in your life)
  • 20 Vacation Days (these are mandatory—you have to use them annually)
  • Overnight visits to our Outposts
  • Working with amazing teams that are passionate about our mission and product
