Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Despegar.com full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Very diverse and awesome tech stack (java, kotlin, scala, nodejs, linux, Cassandra, MongoDB, Redis, etc)... Microservice oriented architecture... - Very important product company..Is a tech... unicorn - Depend on the team, but openness on adapting different technologies - Good people in general

Cons

- Lately, the company is declining in many aspects...It doesn't know how to innovate anymore, it just thinks on improving market share in their business...its a management problem really - Burocracy,... we are now a big enterprise - A lot of the best people Despegar had in the last years is lefting the company, and nobody is doing nothing...Its depressing - The coronavirus impacted and will continue to impact badly to the tourism industry, we don't know right now what will happen, but it looks bad
