COMPANY OVERVIEW:

getawayGoGo is a last-minute direct booking marketplace for connecting travelers with last-minute vacation rental openings and deals from property managers.

Working as a senior developer with getawayGoGo will mean being a key part of the team building an innovative global travel marketplace that utilizes traditional and innovative marketing, creating and building new online and mobile tools as well as API integrations with the vacation rental industry's leading and up and coming property management systems.  getawayGoGo's unique flat-rate booking and connection model is a game-changer in the industry along with our roadmap of connecting innovative technology and marketing. Our goal is rapid and sustainable growth to become the leading last-minute vacation rental travel marketplace in the world.

Where did the idea for getawayGoGo come from? While managing his vacation rental management company in Southern California, owner Brad den Dulk and his team recognized there was extra marketing effort and systems required to fill their last-minute vacancies.  These efforts consisted of price reductions and headline changes on all OTAs, social media specials postings, email newsletter blasts, reservationist discounting, and more. Though effective, these efforts added extra marketing costs and were time-consuming.  Also, because of the OTA fees and reduced direct Traveler communication, it became even more challenging to fill last-minute openings. From this experience the concept for a last-minute marketplace, getawayGoGo was created.
