#1 of 3Skyscanner | London, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Budapest, Sofia | ONSITE, VISA | full-time senior hires
We're one of the biggest travel metasearch products in the world by traffic... and we want to 10x that :)
Hiring at a senior level in lots of key disciplines: backend with microservices & distributed systems, big data & data science, full stack and frontend, 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 a solid track record in one or more of these areas, know what good practices look like, and have the drive to make things better, we're interested.
We're looking for people interested in working on 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. Recently we've had the director of Amazon S3, Bryan Dove join us as our VP engineering. In London you would be working closely with him alongside some very experienced industry figures in a pretty cool and central location.
You can apply at http://www.skyscanner.net/jobs/ - or ping me an email at alex (.) treppass [at] skyscanner.net for a referral. Happy to answer questions or pass you to someone who can.
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 things better. It's an exciting place to be.
