Schibsted is a 175+ year old company which started in the publishing business, moved pretty well into the online world and spawned some other companies in other industries (like online classifieds). Quite a few online classified sites in Europe belong to Schibsted and it is usually the leader in the market. Sites like LeBonCoin.fr (.fr), WillHaben (.at), Finn (.no), Blocket (.se) (and a bunch more) are part of the group.
The different companies in the group have been operating quite independently of each other, something that we are changing now. One of the key efforts for accomplishing this is the Engineering Productivity team, based in Barcelona, which will help standardize on automation, testing, code quality assessment tools, build systems, ... Let the machines do what they are best at and let the engineers work on solving hard problems.
So, if things like full automation, static code analysis, code review bots, testing frameworks, CI/CD, crazy git hooks tick something in your head, get in touch. We are now starting to staff the team.
Interview: 1 phone call w/myself [1 hr], 4 VCs or in person [1 hr each].
(if engprod is not your field of interest, we are still hiring strong software engineers in different locations: BCN, OSL, STO, LDN).

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 Amazon S3 - in London you would be working closely with him alongside some very experienced industry figures in a 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. 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 things better and make us faster as a tech company. It's exciting.
