Redeam is an award-winning traveltechnology company solving a multi-billion dollar problem in travel?s third largest vertical: Tours & Activities. Our software connects the world?s most iconic tourist attractions to the largest travel marketplaces, and your job is to help us scale our business across the US and beyond.

It's a rare opportunity to chart your own course. And a big responsibility!
Tourist attractions like the London Eye and Empire State Building accept and process millions of paper tickets. Redeam is bringing this industry into the modern age by helping tourist attractions move to e-tickets, much like airlines have already done.

Redeam is committed to changing that, and a huge opportunity awaits us. You can be part of it! Redeam was founded by proven entrepreneurs in the travel realm. We just completed our Series A funding yet we have a proven track record with over 200 live installations already.
