AmTrav / Engineering / Front End


Are you a front-end engineer looking for a new challenge? 

We are AmTrav. We used to call ourselves a “rapidly growing travel technology and services company”. Then COVID hit and now we’re just a “travel technology and services company”. But we’re finally starting to grow again. 

Within the business travel space, we’ve remained one of the most innovative companies that you’ve probably never heard of. With our travel management platform, companies of all sizes can book flights, hotels, and car rentals; set company travel policies; run reports; plan meetings; and much more. We compete with giants and unicorns, striving to use our creativity and nimbleness to out innovate their huge overseas development shops. In our 30+ years in business, we’ve been able to claim many firsts but there’s a lot more work to be done. 

As a developer at AmTrav you’ll write code that makes it to production in weeks, not years. We look to our developers not just to implement ideas, but to help craft them. You’ll play a big part in shaping the products on which you’re working.

We are officially located in Agoura Hills, CA and Chicago, IL -- meaning that’s where the empty buildings that we pay rent for are located. If you’re in one of those areas, that’s great, but anywhere else is OK, too – pretty much all of us work remotely at this point. We’re a casual bunch. We respect work-life balance and offer flexible schedules, in addition to competitive salaries, health and dental plans, 401K matches, and unlimited vacation time.
