A performance-based framework that fuels craftsmanship and a fun work culture that endeavors to leverage a better work-life balance - a perfect blend of these ingredients, perhaps, is very scarce to be found in today's startup ecosystem, where many-a-times, tight schedule and long working hours summarizes the journey towards company's success. The situation is more nerve-wracking, when it comes to a product company. However, TripHobo - one of the fastest growing online trip planning portals - has been instrumental in redefining such aura.

Driven by a well-designed fluidic office that always shimmers with vibrant and colorful environment, TripHobo is marked distinctively through its culture that mirrors a perfect blend of flexibility, flatness, openness and fun. Here, capitalizing on the massive growth opportunities, the employees can grow to spearhead subject matter expertise, leadership roles or a new domain all together, as long as they continue to infuse their will and impetus. "Accommodating, fun and casual; it doesn't seem like its work; its home," adds an employee at TripHobo.

A Name to Mirror Innovation & Convenience

TripHobo is not only a preferred entity to develop one's professional self, but also a name that echoes innovation and convenience for a user. Weaved around the idea of being a global product that provides detailed and intuitive itinerary, thereby making your trip a simplified, yet an economical memory to cherish, TripHobo (erstwhile called as JoGuru) was founded in 2014. Highly acknowledged for its flagship product named trip planner, the brainchild of three MBA elites is one of the fastest-growing portals of the world and deploys visual algorithms-backed solutions to help users create, customize and automate an itinerary.

Filling flesh to its official travel thought of Shut Up N' Travel, the company integrates the major requisites - transportation, accommodation, tours & activities, things to do and restaurants - and rolls out an exclusive compendium that takes users on a virtual journey into various cities. Currently, the start-up claims to possess over 3,000,000 monthly users, half-a million user generated itineraries across 14000 cities of the world and has raised around $4.5 million of funding to strengthen its R&D, talent acquisition, content and technology.
