    Gordian Software is looking for a full stack engineer to help bring travel technology into the 21st century.  Travel companies use interfaces and software designed in the 1980s that doesn't measure up to today's data-rich, high customer expectation environment. We are providing the new tools that travel companies need.  They are an early stage company looking for a full-stack engineer. Depending on the day, you might be solving JavaScript injection bugs, designing algorithms to personalize travel results or pre-rendering JavaScript. They are looking for someone excited to make a large impact on a product and learn the full stack of our software. Travel experience not required, but be prepared to learn a lot of technology fast. You will be working directly with the founding team.  Contact Stephen Grabowski directly who is a Carleton alum.
