Scott's Cheap Flights
We're obsessed with helping people travel more often and discover new destinations by finding unpublished sales, mistake fares and incredible deals on international flights.
We live for the moments when we uncover deals like San Francisco to Hawaii for $177 round-trip (usually $900) or New York to New Zealand for $245 (usually $1,500).
1,500,000 global subscribers and growing.
Since opening our platform to the public in 2015, we've grown to over 1,500,000 subscribers around the world in large part thanks to our highly engaged community of evangelists. Every day we wake up to dozens of ecstatic messages and stories of impromptu getaways, surprise adventures and the ability to visit destinations that were prohibitively expensive.
Profitable from day one. 100% bootstrapped.
Our business model is simple and transparent: we offer free and premium subscriptions. Premium subscribers pay $39/year and get 100% of deals (free subscribers get ~ 1 in 3 deals), no ads in emails, and first dibs on emails. We don't get referral fees for any bookings, and our North Star is finding the best deals.
We're currently doing over $5,000,000 annual run rate. We've never taken venture capital, and instead focus on delivering as much value to subscribers as we can every day.
Do the best work of your life.
If your dream job is to be one of the founding members of an engineering team at a high-growth, remote company with product-market fit, we'd love to connect.
You'll work on a small (but growing!) team of developers that operate with limitless ownership, autonomy and room for growth. We value prior leadership experience, though by no means require anybody to be on a path toward management.
We're a 100% remote team and wouldn't have it any other way.
Unlike some remote roles, we don't have any offices, so you'll never be left out of the loop while a group of people in 'HQ' have an impromptu huddle in a conference room and make decisions while you're not there.
We rely heavily on Slack, Zoom, Google Team Drive, Geekbot asynchronous daily standups, JIRA and a few other cool tools to stay connected and in alignment.
The interview process.
We're a small team and move quickly. Step one is a brief chat with our recruiter, then a short (1-hour) coding exercise, two technical interviews (think coding kata), a brief call with our Product lead and a final round chat with our co-founders, Scott and Brian. From there we'll ask for a few references and get an offer out. Total time? Two weeks or less if we can align schedules.
