Company: Roberts Recruiting

Job description: We’re on a mission to build the most customer-centric travel company on earth. We are leveraging the power that comes from combining massive amounts of data and machine learning to build the world’s fastest-growing mobile first travel marketplace — one that enables our customers to save money and travel better.

Our goal is to reduce traveler anxiety throughout all stages of the trip buying and taking process. By creating a transparent travel marketplace and unique, data-driven financial technology products focused on providing peace-of-mind, we add value along each step of the customer’s journey.

We’ve launched several bespoke fintech products that leverage our immense first and third-party data to create products and value that do not exist elsewhere – including Refundable and Flexible Tickets and Price Freeze. Thanks to these offerings, our revenue growth is up 112% despite the travel slowdown due to COVID-19.

With over $250M CAD in funding from leading investors in both Canada and the US, we are primed to continue our acceleration to becoming the world’s fastest-growing end-to-end customer-centric travel offering.

Recognized as one of the world’s most innovative companies by Fast Company three years in a row, our app has been downloaded over 50 million times and sees over 1 million new installs per month. The app has received high praise in the form of mobile accolades such as the Webby Award for Best Travel App of 2019.
