The TripIt Mission
We are frustrated travelers who have worked in both travel and technology for a long time. We know firsthand that using the Internet to make travel plans and organizing the details is difficult and time consuming. And, the problem is getting worse as more people choose to make their own travel plans and as online travel options continue to proliferate.
As good Silicon Valley residents, we also believe that technology should make life easier, not harder. In October, 2006 we founded TripIt and have made it our mission is to simplify the Internet travel experience. We won't bore you with the "gee whiz" technical details of how we do this, but we hope you'll love the results.
With today's myriad of travel sites, even the most experienced traveler has their hands full managing all the details of a typical trip. Booking airline tickets, hotels, rental cars and restaurants leaves you with lots of separate pieces of paper. Throw in maps, directions, things to do, and weather and the chaos multiplies.
TripIt turns chaos into order by making it easy for anyone to:
* Organize trip details into one master online itinerary -- even if arrangements are booked at multiple travel sites
* Automatically include maps, directions and weather in their master itinerary
* Have the option to book restaurants, theatre tickets, activities and more right from within the online itinerary
* Safely access travel plans online, share them, check-in for flights, or print an itinerary
Want to be one of the first 50 employees in a company already nationally praised for technological innovations by as the likes of the Wall Street Journal, CNN and Joel on Software? TripIt was founded by 2nd generation start-up leaders who know how the game is played and, more importantly, how it's won. This is an opportunity to be on the ground floor of a well-funded, privately-held company that values creative, collaborative thinking.

We are venture backed and are moving quickly to tackle the largest e-commerce category on the Internet: travel!
