  • Overview

    CheapCaribbean.com is an Internet-based travel company specializing in beach vacations. Our mission is to ‘Rock the World through the Wonder of Travel’! We are the industry leader in Caribbean vacations and are expanding rapidly, including launching a new site, Beachbound.com.  As many fast-growing e-commerce companies, we have a fun, entrepreneurial, non-hierarchical culture, with an office that is more akin to Silicon Valley startups than a traditional corporate environment.

     

    At the same time, we are part of Apple Leisure Group, which gives us resources that are out of reach for many smaller companies. Our senior leaders and many of our team members hail from the world’s largest online travel agencies and other travel businesses, making us a great place to build up your knowledge of the travel industry while getting a level of ownership and breadth of responsibilities that would be hard to find in a large corporate environment.

     

    As Content Coordinator, you will be responsible for sourcing, editing, creating and publishing content for the company’s website and general marketing needs, assisting with the customer feedback tool and working with the content team to create inspirational, appealing social and blog posts. You will bring our brand positioning to life through engaging content that enables our customers to research destinations, resorts and activities throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. What could be more fun?

     

    Our employees describe our culture as challenging, exciting, collaborative, energetic, rewarding, cool and happy! Come and see for yourself!
