About Gordian Software

We're on a mission to remove all unnecessary friction from air travel. The airline industry is built on a fossilized layer of technology and this causes billions of dollars of friction and lost opportunities for travelers and travel companies.


Our first product allows travel websites to easily sell airline ancillaries (add-ons like seat selection, baggage, etc) rather than force the customer to purchase them separately later.


Today, we serve more than 25 million passengers per month and have grown 1,500% in 2021. Our customers include Priceline, Hopper, and and other top travel brands. Our investors include Y Combinator (Stripe, Airbnb), Localglobe, the co-founders of Plaid and the cofounder of Skyscanner.


We’ve done this with less than 15 people and are profitable.

Our core values are Freedom, Impact and Ownership. We find people with grit, intelligence, and flexibility, then set them loose on our highest impact problems.


Come join us and change air travel forever.


About the role

The Airline Partnerships Lead is responsible for Gordian’s global portfolio of existing and potential airline partnerships. We use airlines’ APIs to help them distribute their flights and other products and help them build new capabilities to sell those products more effectively. You’ll design our strategy for building deep partnerships with the largest airlines in the world and execute on that strategy worldwide.

Gordian already delivers tens of millions of dollars in valuable sales to airlines through our partnerships with Priceline,, Hopper and other travel websites. We believe we can increase that by 100x through deeper airline partnerships. You’ll own this part of our business end to end and have the freedom to innovate alongside an elite technical team.

Role Requirements:

  • 2+ years of airline product/project management experience

  • Highly skilled at relationship building and communicating technical concepts

  • Understanding of airline operations (PSS, GDS integration, Revenue accounting)

  • Motivated by a fast paced, high impact environment

  • High alignment with our values of Freedom, Impact and Ownership. Read more about them here.

We use Python/Postgres/React.

Some interesting problems we're solving:

  • Tracking complex financial flows between travel companies and airlines for millions of dollars
  • Integrating 15-30 APIs in parallel using automated testing, good software design and processes
  • Anomaly detection across airline/travel website pairs. Many times we tell airlines they are down before they know
  • Data modeling to provide a simple, clean API format across 90 airlines' different product sets.
