Senior Software Engineer

Become a Senior Software Engineer at Scout

We started with a simple idea — travel should be relaxing, spontaneous, and unique. At Scout, we’re a small team doing big things. We’re a nimble, early-stage startup who just raised money to address a huge, worldwide opportunity.

By reinventing the concierge, we’re helping hotels create better guest experiences and increase their revenue. For guests, our digital concierge saves you time and stress. Unlike traditional concierges who sit inside the hotel, we’re available on the go to find you authentic, local experiences.
