Will you join us on a journey to disrupt the trillion-dollar travel industry? We are looking for the best and brightest who share our passion for travellers, data, and product.
FindHotel believes travel is the one thing that really opens minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. Our mission is to get every traveller in the world the best accommodation deal. From adventure travel and backpacking to honeymoons and family vacations, we deeply care so that every traveller can make the best-informed accommodation choice at the absolute best conditions for every trip.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Back-End Engineer to help build the most scalable and flexible APIs in the industry. You will be joining FindHotel’s Marketplace Platform Tribe. You will be working with other squads across tribes and closely interact and actively collaborate with the Software Engineers, Data Analysts, Data Scientist, and PO in the team.
We are working with a modern stack consisting of Go, Redis, AWS (ElastiCache, ECS, S3, Batch), Snowflake, and more. We process thousands of requests per second and integrate with many suppliers and other partners. The products developed by the Offers team are a core part of FindHotel’s platform allowing us to offer the best possible comparison and offers to every traveller, worldwide. Hence, anything that you will develop and ship on production will have an immediate effect on our users and on our business performance. We work in a flexible, results-oriented and customer-centric team structure, focussed on shipping value in a collaborative fashion, with hopefully just the right amount of bureaucracy.
Work in a team to solve challenging problems, and design and develop products that will help to bring to our travellers the best deals available in the market. Identify bottlenecks and opportunities for improvements in terms of performance, reliability, and code quality. Integrate and improve (new) provider integrations. Help to maintain and improve our infrastructure and scale it to support our continuous growth in a cost-effective way.
In the morning, you and your fellow engineers have a refinement session with the PO to discuss the upcoming features on the roadmap. You carefully consider the impact of the new feature on the entire product and raise questions and make suggestions of what is the most pragmatic approach to balance the technical excellence with the time to market. You are part of a discussion that builds on top of each other suggestions, ideas and comments. Today you have chosen to come to the office and after lunch you play table tennis or pool or go for a walk with colleagues in the city centre. In the afternoon, you enter a deep work period and finish working on improving a core component in the rates and availability API. Once down with that work you jump on a zoom call with the rest of the team to discuss the challenges and next steps with the PoC the team is building in this sprint. Throughout the day you monitor the product operations using DataDog.
