Background

KOMPAS is disrupting city exploration by leveraging machine learning and other innovative technologies with the intention of creating a seamless travel experience. From planning, right through to booking tickets and finding hidden gems within a city, we’re able to bring personalisation into the travel industry. No longer will you have to spend hours browsing through hundreds of recommendations from people you know nothing about, only to be disappointed with the outcome. With KOMPAS, all the content is curated, personal and kept to the highest standard. We’re headquartered in London, and currently have an active presence in London, Birmingham, Exeter, Liverpool, Munich and Berlin, with other cities across the UK and Germany to follow in the next 12 months.

To date, we’ve been named as one of the UK’s most inspirational startups, we’ve won multiple awards for innovation and technology, and we’ve been featured as one of the top 7 travel startups by multiple publications. Most recently, we were named as one of the worlds top 500 deep-tech companies of 2017. If you want to be a part of the future of travel, and work on groundbreaking technologies, KOMPAS is for you.

​Mission and Vision

Our vision is to bring the city exploration experience into the 21st century. We’re on a mission to make travel more enjoyable, tailored and most importantly, all about the individual. We’ve partnered with companies in the payments space, and transport industry, to make even the most gruesome of journeys feel worth it for the destination. At KOMPAS, we eat, sleep and dream about innovation through disruption.

​KOMPAS At A Glance

Our business is growing at over 50% month-on-month, and we’re already putting together our city expansion plans, adding new cities to the roster quicker and quicker. We’ve won a number of awards, and been featured in national and international press (https://www.kompasapp.com/press). We’ve been through an accelerator, and we’re expecting to grow at over 50% each and every moth for the next 18 months. We’re revenue generating, and we’re passionate about changing the way that people travel worldwide.

Our Culture

Modestly speaking, the best job you’ll ever have is here at KOMPAS. We’re all about pushing you to be the best that you can be, and doing everything that we can to support you along the way. We’re an inclusive, well-rounded and culturally diverse team, with many nationalities and languages being included in the mix.

Our office is rarely boring, and you’ll never leave the office feeling low, that’s our guarantee to you. Let’s just say that we’re fairly confident that everyone who’s a part of KOMPAS could almost certainly find employment in stand-up comedy if this travel stuff doesn’t quite pan out.

​Where you could be working

Have we mentioned that we’ve got copious amounts of coffee and tea in the office, and that we make sure you’re always stacked up on free fruit. After all, those vitamins are important. Plus, each week there’s breakfast served on a Monday, and on a Thursday you can tuck into a locally sourced slice of pizza and a can of beer.

We’re based in Work.Life London Fields, and we love it here because of the community, so even if you don’t like anyone in the office (that’s genuinely not possible), you’ll get to meet lots of other people (and the odd dog) around.
