Software Dev Engineer I

We are looking for a Software Engineer to join one of our teams, responsible for developing technology that helps millions of travellers to find the best hotel at the right time for their next unforgettable trip.

What you’ll do:

  • Work in an agile team and look for ways to continuously improve through asking and providing feedback

  • You will act as a point of contact for technical issues for specific work streams within a project

  • You will implement product features working as part of a multi-functional team using agile methodologies and run what you build approach

  • You will drive ongoing improvements in application architecture to help build and design highly scalable enterprise applications

Who you are:

We don’t believe in skill matching against a list of buzzwords… We look for smart people with good general programming skills because we believe that exceptional developers can learn new technologies quickly and well. However, it wouldn't hurt if you have experience with some of the following (or a passion to learn them):

  • Fluent Object-Oriented Programming concepts, data structure, algorithms, preferably in Java

  • Very passionate about learning, especially in the areas of technology, service design patterns and system architecture

  • Be self-motivated with drive and good organisational skills to work to challenging deadlines

  • Critical thinker, expected to speak out and defend views

  • Experience delivering and supporting highly available and scalable solutions with large transaction volume

  • Experience of using cloud services (e.g. AWS)

As a team, we love to…

  • Expand our skills in building highly scalable solutions while influencing others and raising the bar on the overall level of excellence within the team.

  • Work in an environment where elegant, clean, maintainable code is favoured over messy hacks.

  • Share our knowledge with each other and learn new things.

  • Take advantage of our amazing travel discounts and tick some destinations off our bucket lists!

We’ll take your career on a journey that’s flexible and right for you, whilst recognising and rewarding your achievements…

  • Competitive salaries and many growth opportunities within the company.

  • You will get the opportunity to serve as a domain expert in multi-functional feature delivery.

  • Option to attend conferences globally and enrich the technology skills you are passionate about.

  • A conversation with your Manager around flexible working and what is right for you is encouraged from day one.
