Front-End, Lead Developer for fast-growing, fully-funded start-up in The Amusement Park Industry



The Mandate


The Amusement park industry is ripe for disruption.


There are no platforms that are simultaneously enhancing the guest experience while driving operational efficiency and accelerating positive bottom line results.


As the Front-End Lead Developer, you will manage the development and maintenance of user-facing features for multiple pieces of software.  Multiple web apps and mobile apps drive the software that is targeted at both guests of venues as well as those that operate these venues. 


The Company


Vantage is the technology division of the market leader in the WaterPark industry. Privately funded and growing rapidly we have just completed our first MVP.  We are now ready to scale, with a global sales channel, a strong funnel and a vision for the future. 


Vantage provides guests with an elevated experience through personalization, safety, loyalty rewards and digital overlays within attractions.   While guests are experiencing the venue, Vantage helps staff by contextualizing data that is meaningful to optimizing the overall operations of the venue.   Our clients range from water parks and theme parks to hotels and resorts, museums, zoos and much more.  Our goal is to grow our business by doubling clients year over year.


The team at Vantage is the heart of our success.  We strive to build a culture that meets the demands of our clients while driving satisfaction within our team.   We have a philosophy that ensures our work is engaging and fun while creating a differentiator in the marketplace and beyond.
