Having launched two years ago into an extremely crowded travel vertical, Hipmunk has carved out its own niche. The site was built out of the need for ease of travelling by its founders, and the company has done a lot of things right since then. Hipmunk has raised $20.2 million to date, and has recently launched a new Deals product, which allows people to find the best places to go based on the best price available.
For people who just want to go somewhere, and nowhere specifically, Hipmunk can help you find a cheap ticket to a random place for the most comfortable and affordable flight travel experience you’ll have. For example, if you’re looking to “get away” this weekend, Hipmunk could find you a super cheap plane ticket from San Francisco to Vegas in a snap.
Hipmunk’s CEO and founder Adam Goldstein stopped by our studios to discuss the new product and to update us on what’s still ahead for the company.
The company started out small, but it currently has 32 people now and is looking for more engineers. You probably get to travel a lot…you know, to “test things out.”
