Do you want to join us on a journey to change the trillion dollar travel industry? We are looking for the best and brightest who share our passion for data driven user experience.
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 traveler 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 enthusiastic, motivated front-end engineers to help build the best user experience for our brand new product. You will collaborate with team members with a wide range of expertise, including other engineers, UX experts, data analysts, and a PO.
We are working with a modern stack consisting of ES2016, React 16, Redux and Ramda. We use Babel and Webpack and our server runs on Node.js, while our APIs are built with Go and Elixir. We employ unit, snapshot, and end-to-end testing where it adds value, and use Flow and ESLint / Prettier to keep our code base in good shape, even with multiple A/B tests running simultaneously. We work in a flexible, results-oriented team structure, focussed on shipping value in a collaborative fashion, with hopefully just the right amount of bureaucracy.
What you will be doing
What a day in the office might look like
In the morning, you and your fellow engineers sit down with your Product Owner, UX designer and a Data Scientist to discuss the trajectory of an ongoing A/B test. You decide together that based on available data, a new variation for the way we display room perks on the mobile search result page is expected to improve conversion. After lunch you and the UX designer sketch the variation which you will build together with your fellow teammates. After you deploy your experiment to the live site you'll be brainstorming about that new feature you want to build for the tablet optimised version of the website, which is added to the backlog of test ideas.
After a few days, the Data Scientist will update the team on the status of the A/B test, for which you and the team will plan follow up tasks in the next planning session.
You will be working with one of our multi-disciplinary squads to help you shape the product to our users' needs. We currently have three customer facing squads, one working on the search funnel, another squad dedicated to our booking / checkout process and a new squad focussing on retention of our users. We are happy to work with you throughout the recruitment process to find the right squad for you to start in.
You will work together with other squads such as performance marketing and customer support, as well as the teams that are responsible for building the services used by the product, such as live offer data, caching and event tracking solutions.
