About KAYAK 

KAYAK Software Corporation is a technology-driven company committed to making online travel better. When the cofounders of Expedia, Travelocity and Orbitz started KAYAK in 2004, they didn’t just want to build another travel website – they wanted to take a better approach to finding travel online. Our websites (KAYAK.com, swoodoo.com and checkfelix.com) and mobile applications make it easy for people to research and compare accurate and relevant information from hundreds of other travel websites in one comprehensive, fast and intuitive display.

We are headquartered in Stamford, CT and have over 300 employees located in our offices in US, Switzerland, UK and Germany.

In 2013, we opened KAYAK's latest Technology Center in Berlin. After setting out to find a home in Europe's bustling tech hub, we found the perfect space in the historic Postbahnhof building in Friedrichshain, newly renovated and engineered to meet the need of our growing development and content teams.

 

Come join the team at KAYAK and help us build the best travel metasearch website in the world!
