Do you love to travel as much as we do?

The Points Guy is on quite a run. We’ve just moved into our new headquarters and we just finished an amazing second annual TPG Awards. Our team has grown to more than 100 people and we need even more help to keep bringing you the travel knowledge you need to succeed, so we just posted for several full-time positions.

We’re also looking for four summer interns in our New York office. Yes, these are paid internships. Don’t expect to be suddenly jetting all over the world as an intern, but crazier things have happened.

Our employees have had amazing adventures, including a family vacation to Bora Bora, comparing four classes on the same plane and checking out first class on one of the world’s most exclusive flights.

If you are interested in joining the TPG team, check out the postings below and submit an application via our job board.
