This is a multi-faceted role to help Flightfox, the world's first crowdsourced travel marketplace, transition from a search-only service to a multi-product booking platform.
You will initially help build our capability to book flights, which will include setting up GDS access and shaping our product to integrate bookings. You will also work in a traditional agent capacity to service customers of the new product.
We already have over 13,000 customers, so this is a rare chance to work in an industry you love, while helping develop an innovative new product that already has a customer base.
You must have prior travel agency experience, preferably with setting up and/or operating as a licensed IATA agency. You must also have extensive GDS experience, preferably across multiple systems such as Sabre and Amadeus.
Most importantly, we are looking for someone with the resourcefulness to lead our charge into agency services. We will give preference to candidates who demonstrate lateral strategic thinking. Technical software or web expertise is also a bonus.
We are a small technical company that innovates quickly. We offer a close, friendly and casual working environment, and a pivotal role within an energetic team.
From an industry perspective, you will have direct access to the world's best travel hackers. You will also be instrumental in bringing agency-quality service to the web.
