Full Stack Developer

Job description

At Tab we've built a payments platform for independent tourism businesses off the beaten track, capable of handling thousands of payments an hour across 100 currencies, in real-time, with near-zero downtime — backed by Python + Flask + Postgres.


We're also building a direct-booking platform and traveller-focused discovery platform in Svelte + Django, with over 100,000 tourism businesses listed so far.


We are now operating profitably and sustainably, after successfully weathering the travel slump during COVID. That means we’re ready to build up the team as we continue to grow revenue.

Some of the challenges which excite us:
  • scaling our payments platform to handle 10x more payments per day whilst maintaining checks-and-balances: we're thinking about concurrent-systems, next-gen payment gateways, dynamic scaling, TDD
  • iterating on our direct booking and discovery platform with an ambitious plan to support 200,000+ businesses and a millions of travellers: we're thinking about speed, security, edge-computing
  • continuously improving how we work and dev, as the team and challenges grow

We move fast, so you'll start having a meaningful impact on the business in your first week as we execute our ambitious growth plan. You'll also be encouraged to contribute across all areas – we all help each other out.
