At Wanderlog, we love to travel and believe that it makes the world better, broadens our horizons, builds empathy, and challenges us to grow. That's why we want to bring these experiences to more of the world by making leisure travel easier, and build tools that lower the bar to do it.
We've raised funding from Y Combinator and General Catalyst, who have funded other travel startups such as Airbnb, Kayak, and Hipmunk. Our travel planning app has a 4.9-star rating and over 1 million downloads, and we have many happy users who’ve shared their experiences (without us asking them) on Tiktok, Reddit, and Youtube.

We're looking to hire a Product Designer to lead both UX and visual design for Wanderlog.

We’re an engineering and product-heavy team. Travel is something everyone does, and we love using the tools we build. A typical week's work involves talking to users, prioritizing tasks on a kanban, designing on Figma, and building and shipping them continuously.
We believe in work-life balance despite being a fast-paced week. We work normal hours and make time for enjoying life with friends and family. We love travel and believe it rejuvenates us and makes us better people, and have travel off-sites every 6 months where the goal is to just enjoy visiting a new place and use the tools we've built.
We have a small, friendly, and capable team. We’ve hired strictly and deliberately to create a small team that we enjoy working with. Despite being remote, we try to replicate the community of being in person a bit by having a casual part of our standup where we talk about our lives outside of work and play games together every 2 weeks on Thursday afternoons.
The founders are twin brothers — Peter worked as an engineer at Stripe and a consultant at McKinsey, and Harry as a product manager at Google. They studied computer science at Yale, and have built successful, bootstrapped travel companies (BookWithMatrix and All the Flight
