Purpose

Remove all unnecessary friction from air travel

Our vision is to build a new operating system for air travel. Our API, widgets and platforms will power the best travel experiences in the world by making it simple to retrieve, book, change and control your journey.

Culture

We value freedom, impact, and ownership.

Freedom

You should be comfortable in fast-paced and rapidly changing environments. You should be able to exercise autonomy rather than needing detailed direction.

Impact

Your job is to work on the highest impact project you are capable of. This goes for everyone in Gordian. We operate in three-day sprints to make sure there is no drift between our priorities and our customers’ priorities.

Ownership

You should be proactive and do whatever you think is necessary for the team to achieve our goals. We enthusiastically seek out responsibility and stack the deck in our team’s favor.

Our hybrid work environment is a direct expression of our values and for us it combines the best of in-person and remote. We spend 6 weeks together and 46 weeks apart, gathering at HQ in Bellevue, WA every two months for a weeklong ‘Meetup’. We believe everyone should be free to work wherever and whenever they can maximize their impact.  Other than participating in our Meetups and planning sessions every three days, everyone owns their environment.  


We also believe in compensating people based on the value of their impact and not the cost of their living.

Progress

We launched in 2017, offering online travel agencies a new ability to sell add-on products like seat selection and extra luggage.  We’ve done this by building a single, flexible API that connects travel booking websites with hundreds of airlines.

We landed major customers quickly and have grown tremendously since then.  In 2018, we grew 15x.  In 2019, we grew 15x again.  In 2020, despite the Covid impact on travel, we grew 50%, and in 2021 we are on track to more than 10x again.  We are privileged to count some of the leading travel companies as customers.

This is our first step in building a travel operating system, and we are just beginning.


We’ve raised the money we need to grow our company as fast as we can hire, and are fortunate to have backing from phenomenal investors and leaders from the following companies.
