Today, coordinating business travel is complex because of competing interests, opaque industry practices, convoluted systems, and bad software.
But we believe that travel is a force-multiplier for growth.
Travel connects teams to new and existing co-workers, partners, and customers. It enables new opportunities, produces unexpected collaboration, and shifts perspectives. That’s why we focus daily on making travel more about why you’re going and less about how you’ll get there.
Our mission is to make in-person collaboration effortless.
We have an opportunity for a creative and empathetic design professional to impact the travel experience for thousands of users daily.
At Pana, we believe that travel is so much more than booking a flight or hotel—it’s the entire user experience, from doorstep to doorstep. If you are a strategic customer advocate who is obsessed with improving the customer experience, and solving big, interesting problems, this opportunity is for you!
As our first design hire, you’ll be responsible for envisioning how to make the user journey as seamless and easy as possible for our customers.
You will be asked to deeply understand our customer's needs and creatively design solutions for delighting our customers. You should be comfortable being involved in the entire lifecycle of product development, from customer research and empathy interviews to the day the code hits AWS.
This is a truly unique opportunity for someone to embark on a career-transforming journey. As such, it is going to require a truly unique individual to do it well; we suggest you read this blog post and ensure you’re a“whole-body” YES to everything in it before applying.
In return, we provide full benefits, unlimited vacation time, a competitive salary, stock options, and a chance to change the face of travel.
