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.

First of all, a bit about us!
Cloudreach is an idea that started out in a London pub. We’re now a global cloud enabler and partner with the very best cloud platforms (AWS, Azure, Salesforce). We have hubs in Europe and North America, with more certified technical staff than anyone else in the world. Cloudreach works on challenging technical projects such as data centre migrations, data analytics, and managing digital estates. This is not your average company; we keep our feet on the ground and our heads in the cloud.
We are looking for Dev Ops Leaders, Dev Ops Lead and Dev Ops Engineer for our amazing office in Edinburgh who have a passion for operations and are keen to further their career in a fast growing company. We subscribe to the concept of "DevOps", where we use development skills in the operational environment in order to increase service quality. Typically our customers use an extensive array of technology running on either Linux or the Microsoft stack. The intent is to fix or work around the root cause of operational issues, so that they do not re-occur.
We are looking for:
For engineers, 3- 5 years ops experience and (depending on the role) at least 12 months leadership experience
Excellent technical knowledge with some or all of our partner solutions (Alert Logic, AWS, Microsoft Azure, Chef, BitDefender, CloudEndure and many others) and be able to present and articulate these concepts to both technical and non-technical audiences.
Scripting and Automation experience of Operating Systems and Services
Solid understanding of current and future best practices for IT operations and how to adapt these to support the delivery of cloud based Operational services at a global scale (e.g. DevOps, Bimodal, ITIL and others).
Our Cloudy Perks include:
MacBook Pro, big screen monitor and your choice of smartphone
Unique ‘cloudy’ culture where we work hard and play hard
World-class technical training and career development opportunities through our Cloudy University including AWS Professional Certifications, Microsoft Certifications and more!
Fully stocked in-office kitchen and team ‘cloudy’ lunches, taking over a restaurant every Friday.There are also cool office amenities like a pool table, foosball, and Xbox on the big screen TV.
Quarterly parties around Europe and an annual kick off event in a cool destination. Last year, it was in Spain!
