We're one of the biggest travel metasearch products in the world by traffic... and we want to 10x that, again :)
Hiring at an experienced level in lots of key disciplines: backend with microservices & distributed systems, big data & data science, full stack (modern frontend + api skills - particularly Node or Python), designers, product, iOS & Android. We are growing in all of our European offices - London and Barcelona being the two newest. In short, if you've got good industry experience, know what best practices look like, and have the drive to make things better, we're interested.
We want to hire people interested in large-scale challenges and building new products. We have an incredible amount of historical data and a unique position in the market. What should the future look like? How do we best use our data, our scale and new technologies to our advantage as we grow? We're particularly interested in data-driven personalization and recommendation, exploring new travel products and experiences, as well as developer enablement and tooling.
We're one of the very few unicorn companies HQ'd in Europe who are profitable, and have been so for the past 7 years. Our CTO Bryan Dove joined us from leading Amazon S3 - in London you would be working closely with him alongside some very experienced industry figures in a cool and central location.
Please ping me an email at alex (.) treppass [at] skyscanner.net for a referral. Happy to answer questions or pass you to someone who can. CV in Word / .doc format would be ideal, pdf is fine.
On a personal note, I see a lot of freedom, responsibility, accountability. Engineers have a lot of room to make decisions and move fast, and the encouragement to make us better. It's exciting.
We have a bunch of info up on our jobs site, too: http://www.skyscanner.net/jobs/
