WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK HERE
Building greatness in a disruptive era requires strong ambition, talent, curiosity, diversity of thought and a belief that we’re better together. We want our employees to grow whilst with us so we’ve created an environment that encourages everyone to learn, challenge each other and create extraordinary experiences for themselves, their colleagues and our customers. We are continually on the lookout for talented people from all backgrounds that can further contribute to this amazing culture.
OUR TECHNICAL ENVIRONMENT
Our Engineering Team consists of over sixty five Senior Software Developers that are responsible for the end-to-end ownership of our platform, from architecture through to infrastructure. Individually they are all exceptional at what they do, but by working collaboratively within a team, consistently applying best-practice and automating absolutely everything they are able to build world-class software for our customers.
We don’t mind whereabouts our Developers are based as we are happy for our team to work from anywhere in the UK or EU, with most of them choosing to work remotely most of the time. That being said, we do also have London and Amsterdam offices, so should they ever wish to work from these, they are most welcome.

Languages: Go (and some Java, Python, Ruby)
Tools: Kubernetes, Terraform, Docker, Vault, Consul, Linkerd, AWS: SQS, SNS, EC2, RDS
Methodologies: Agile, Scrum, Kanban, TDD, BDD, Pair-Programming
THE SKILLS WE’RE LOOKING FOR
Whilst experience of the above technologies would be nice, it is by no means essential. We are looking to speak with well-rounded, Senior Software Developers who have a breadth of experience across a variety of programming languages, have an understanding of distributed systems and cloud computing alongside an appreciation of automation and the DevOps culture. Candidates should also value the importance of code quality and software development best-practice, whilst being passionate about technology and enjoy working collaboratively within a team.
Our hiring process varies depending on the role and the candidate, but this should give you an idea of the steps you should expect to follow:
Phone screen with our Talent Team (30-45 minutes)

Technical interview with 3 members of our Engineering Team via video-link (1 hour 30 minutes)Apply ⎘ Copy Link ↗ Visit Link

Wanderu instantly searches over 200 different bus and train operators, routes, and schedules, empowering millions of travelers to find the right trip for them at the best price. Be a part of an exciting, fast-paced startup environment and make a difference in the world.
We hire people who are driven, solutions-focused, and passionate about their work. Our employees never fill a single role and always rise to new challenges with excitement and curiosity.
We are seeking experienced engineers to join our Platform Engineering team. In this role, you will be key to the development and management of the Wanderu technology platform. As a member of this team, you will work closely with others in an exciting environment using the latest technologies including NoSQL and graph search technologies. You will start fast and ship features and fixes in your first week.
You learned CS concepts in school like linked lists, graphs, Big “O” notation, search and sorting, but you wondered why everybody used a relational db for everything.
You thrive in an environment that doesn’t get bogged down with red-tape and encourages creative solutions to complex problems.
You desire to have an impact with what you do and want to see what you build help people.
You know that there is never just one path to a solution and that the key is finding the solution that helps move the product and team forward quickly without sacrificing quality.
You like to travel and wondered how technology could have made the experience better.
When you run into every-day problems, you think to yourself “How can I automate this?” or “How can I make this work better?”
When you were a child, you disassembled your toys to see how they worked. Most of the time, the pieces came back together in the right order.
Your engineering career started on the front-end or the back-end, but you feel comfortable contributing across the full stack.
