About point.me

Here at point.me we’re devoted to bringing simplicity and clarity to a system that is intentionally opaque. And unlike traditional travel agencies, or even online booking services like Orbitz, Kayak, & Google, we don’t take a fee or commission from the airlines when someone books a flight.

Instead, point.me is on the  side of our customers — we work directly for them! We’re an ally that uses our expertise and technology to ensure people travel better, and are never taken advantage of.

Our proprietary algorithm crawls the many hidden corners of the Internet, including those hard-to-search airline award websites to discover the clearest path to maximizing the value of loyalty and credit card points.

Benefits & perks

Join our growing team! Here at point.me we believe in taking care of our team, so that our team can take care of our customers. All employees are offered the following:

  • Competitive salaries and meaningful equity
  • Comprehensive health care coverage
  • A 100% distributed workforce, so you can contribute from wherever you prefer
  • An open vacation policy, with a minimum of 15 days off each year
  • Team trips and outings

Given the nature of our business, we anticipate that all team members will be traveling from time to time, including company trips and off-sites, or meeting with strategic partners. As such, being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 is a condition of employment at point.me. We’ll ask you to send us a copy of your vaccination card in advance of your first day.

We respect the individual needs of employees and are an equal opportunity employer. Positions are remote, but you must be eligible to work in the United States.
