Where We're Coming From
The open road. That’s what it’s all about. Driving down long stretches of asphalt, pulling over at a local diner for some grub, and discovering the most incredible roadside wonders.
Co-founders James Fisher and Tatiana Parent suffer from an incurable case of wanderlust. So, they decided to design a web and mobile platform that streamlines discovery, planning, booking and navigation into one engaging road trip planner.
Powered by a fleet of local experts and travel writers, Roadtrippers features a seemingly infinite database of amazing places. We do the hard part, so you can have the adventure of a lifetime. At its core, Roadtrippers aims to inspire and promote awareness for local, offbeat and culturally stimulating experiences. After all, as Emerson’s taught us, it’s all about the journey.
Roadtrippers is a fast growing, venture funded startup based in OTR, Cincinnati. Learn more at Roadtrippers.com.
Roadtrippers' users are looking for new and exciting places to visit, and we are the wizards weaving the spells that open their eyes. We are the clockmakers and we are the machinists. We build the tools used to feed fuel to our data machine, and we keep the parts moving smoothly. As a Web Developer you will work with others in the development group as well as our data, content, and design teams to enhance the Roadtrippers experience.
Points of Interest
Development at Roadtrippers is fast-paced. We constantly balance the need to deploy a feature NOW with keeping it running smoothly. Some days you will be building a hot, new feature that will blow minds, and others you will be refining an older feature to bring back that new-feature smell. You won't be expected to reinvent the wheel, but you do need to make the off-the-shelf wheel fit the chassis.
