Working at Peek

Are you looking for an exciting position at a fast-paced company that is revolutionizing the activities space? Complementing Peek.com, Peek recently launched Peek Professional, a business tool for activity operators that helps them manage their tours and gain new customers.

The company was founded by Ruzwana Bashir and Oskar Bruening in January 2012 and is backed by the Valley's top investors including Eric Schmidt, Jack Dorsey, David Bonderman and SV Angel.

Peek has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, CNBC, Bloomberg, Mashable, and Forbes. And in November 2013, we won the "People's Choice" Award for Best Travel Innovation at the PhoCusWright conference.

Peek is hiring for a number of positions, so come join our awesome, San Francisco based team!

Open Positions

Love Building Stuff?

We are looking for creative, diverse engineers to join us. At Peek we believe in the art of crafting quality code and we have some unusually challenging work in store — building the OpenTable of travel activities isn’t easy!

We value being a product and business focused engineering organization, and we are looking for engineers ready to dig into every aspect of the business and deliver products that bring the absolute best user experience in our industry. Sound hard? It is, and our ideal candidate finds that to be a huge positive!

Sr. Engineer, Fullstack / Backend

Are you a technical guru ready to architect a system that scales to power an entire industry? As a senior member of our team you will decide how we design, build, and deliver our software to travelers worldwide. And then you'll make it happen. You should be a generalist and love working the full software stack, digging into performance trade-offs, designing server communication infrastructures, architecting complex data models, and envisioning the future infrastructure backbone for Peek's system.

We have for you...
  • Driving and owning major parts of the product.
  • Working 1:1 with designers.
  • Participating in the collective ownership of the engineering process.
  • Getting great things done in a small team.
You have for us...
  • Enthusiasm for working collaboratively with awesome people across all teams.
  • 5+ years of professional engineering experience.
  • Mad engineering skills with a rock solid OO foundation.
  • Interest in the business and bigger company vision.

iOS Engineer

Are you able to create amazing user experiences on tiny devices? As the second iOS developer to join the Peek team, you will have the opportunity to greatly shape and influence our mobile development. Our current mobile suite includes two apps in the App Store (the B2C Peek Tours & Activities app & the B2B Peek Professional app), and one more on its way (a B2B iPad app).

We have for you...
  • Driving and owning major parts of the product.
  • Working 1:1 with designers.
  • Participating in the collective ownership of the engineering process.
  • Getting great things done in a small team.
You have for us...
  • 2+ apps in the Apple App Store (you should have played a major engineering role in these)
  • 3+ years of professional engineering experience, with a focus on iOS
  • Mad engineering skills with a rock solid OO foundation.
  • Interest in the business and bigger company vision.
  • Concern for the quality of Peek’s products, particularly the ones you’re building.

And because we know you want to know (we would): we develop in EmberJS, Ruby on Rails, and Cocoa/Objective-C. We embrace the schemaless world of MongoDB, and geek out over stats in Mixpanel and NewRelic.

With all that being said, if you are an expert in the best tool for the job and we don't use it yet, we also love to try new things and adapt quickly.
