Liigo Recruitment Information

We are hiring!

Liigo is a startup which operates a location-based tourism search-engine.

Currently, with the advancements in the sharing economy and online travel agents, both tourist content (including what to see, restaurant information, transport methods etc.) and sites which provide these have increased in both variety and in number.

Liigo aims to be the one-stop location to access all these different tourist-oriented websites. We want to make ourselves the platform where tourists are able to find the tourist content most suited to themselves with minimal fuss – and thus provide the world with a way to access new tourist experiences that they would otherwise not be able to access.

This is also why we do not just operate a tourism search engine, but actively aim to unearth content in different localities which can provide value to tourists. This is why we work to help municipalities, hotels and tour operators with their marketing.

Liigo’s mission is to bring to the world a way to further cross-border interaction and to allow users to experience this sense of revelation inherent to traveling. We are currently a startup with 2 bases of operations and 4 nationalities represented in our team.

We are looking for new members to join us and are looking forward to hearing from you!

Please send any applications to with a clear email title. Thank you!
