Back-end Engineer (Rails + Node)

Reservamos.mx - Back-end Engineer (remote)

About Reservamos.mx:
We believe that technology is revolutionizing travel for the better. Back in 2014 at MIT, we decided to start our Company journey by focusing on bus travel. Why bus? easy, the bus sector is the largest mode of transportation in the Americas. Passenger volume is estimated at over 10Bn passengers per year, 13x that of air sector volume. Yet only 10% of this is sold online today. We believe it is just a matter of time for online bookings to represent 50%+ of all ticket sales.

We are a full-stack company focused on creating the best online experience to book bus and flight tickets in Mexico and the US. Our allies include renowned brands such as Greyhound, Primera Plus, ETN, among others.

Our motto is simple "Be creative, take ownership and be a team player"
