GetGoing - is a travel innovation company that revolutionizes customer segmentation for airlines and hotels to sell the cheapest tickets and rooms on earth. We have invented a novel distribution method that helps move unsold airline seats - 20% of the total inventory worth tens of billions of dollars - to discretionary leisure travelers. GetGoing customers are expected to pick two destinations instead of one while being able to select specific itineraries to both destinations at huge exclusive discounts negotiated by GetGoing directly with airlines. GetGoing selects one of these two itineraries and tickets it, revealing it to the customer after processing the payment. Since destination flexibility is necessary for booking, our sales exclude business travelers, those visiting friends and relatives (VFR), and non-flexible leisure customers. The company is currently developing a hotel inventory segmentation product and has a large product roadmap going forward.
We offer truly unique user experience. We have been chosen into Time magazine’s Top 50 websites of 2013.
and are the only travel website to make the list.
GetGoing has patented inventory distribution technology for air travel, hotels, packages, and other travel verticals.
A few buzzwords on our technology stack: Amazon Web Services, backbone.js, underscore.js, python / Django, Postgres, CouchBase (persistent caching and NoSQL), RabbitMQ. We use Jenkins for continuous integration and Facebook's Phabricator for code reviews.
GetGoing is based in San Francisco (primarily business and product), Kiev, and Kazan (development). We arguably have the strongest python development team in Kiev. Our Kiev office is located right next to m. Teatral’naya.
We are funded by Yury Milner, Lightbank (Groupon founders), DCVC (Marissa Mayer), Y Combinator, and other prominent investors. Please visit https://www.getgoing.com/what-we-do/ to learn about the team.
