We are all about Experiences! 

Peek is at the core of the Experience industry by building best-in-class business software for experience providers and a growing distribution network. We are a two-sided marketplace with a big emphasis on empowering providers, often small but passionate businesses, to grow and streamline their operations as they focus on the adventures that create lasting memories for their customers.

Peek’s rapid growth has made it the largest independent B2B activities booking platform in the world. Peek is post-Series-B and has raised over $50m from top technology and travel investors such as Eric Schmidt, Jack Dorsey, Pete Flint, Paul English, and Cathay Innovation. The company has 160+ employees worldwide, with offices in San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Chile, New York and Seattle. CNBC labeled Peek as the “OpenTable for activities,” it won the Tribeca “Disruptive Innovation Award” alongside Airbnb and the New York Times called Peek.com “a site you want to visit again and again.”

Peek has always had a passion for simple design and ease of use. Our design team is at the heart of this passion. Peek’s Design team serves a key role in creating new features and maintaining consistency across a complex multi-channel platform, Peek Pro and Peek Marketplace. We are looking for a design leader who is a quick, big thinker that can easily translate strategies down to execution while keeping up the pace of innovation of Peek.
