Working at FlightAware
FlightAware is the world leader in flight tracking; we accomplish this with creativity, innovation, dedication, diligence, and integrity. FlightAware is over ten years old, is self-financed, with millions a year in revenue, but still ambitious and with the hunger of a startup.
FlightAware's culture has been created around dedication to users and customers while having a good time doing it. There is no bureaucracy to slow down customer response or innovation with the exception of redundancy, and standard tests to ensure reliability and accuracy.
FlightAware supports flex hours for most positions and a business casual work environment. Lunch can be ordered using FlightAware's "LunchAware" system, which supports restaurant voting and cashless transactions. At the end of the day, FlightAware's Houston office has multiple beers on tap and plenty of frosted mugs.
Many of FlightAware's 60 employees hold an FAA pilots certificate and 100% of FlightAware employees have a passion for aviation and the service we provide.
In order to attract the very best, FlightAware offers competitive compensation, a fun work environment, and all the benefits that you would expect from the world's premier flight tracking company.
FlightAware offers completely free medical insurance to full time employees. Employees can purchase additional coverage for spouse and/or children at the nominal cost. New hires have fourteen days of paid time off and traditional paid holidays throughout the year.
All full time employees can enroll in FlightAware's matching 401(k) retirement plan and are eligible for performance-based bonuses.
This profile of us by 37signals is a good overview of who we are. You get top-of-the-line Apple gear and our kitchen is always stocked with snacks and beverages, including a free (!) beer kegerator.
We've been around for a while, but we're still growing like mad. Compensation is very competitive.
