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 opens minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. Our mission is to get every traveler the best accommodation deal. From adventure travel and backpacking to honeymoons, family vacations and business trips, we deeply care for every traveler to make the best-informed accommodation choice at the best conditions.

FindHotel has the ambition that every decision should be based on data and every feature be fuelled with data. To make this happen we invest heavily in our data infrastructure.

What you’ll do:

  • Build large-scale and real-time systems to provide FindHotel’s analysts, data scientists, and decision makers with high-quality low latency data.

  • Use best practices in continuous integration and delivery.

  • Help drive optimization, testing and tooling to improve data quality.

  • Collaborate with other Software Engineers, Data Engineers and stakeholders, taking learning and leadership opportunities that will arise.

  • Work in multi-functional agile teams to continuously experiment, iterate and deliver on new product objectives.

Who you are:

  • You know how to work with high volume heterogeneous data, preferably with distributed systems such as Kafka, Spark, and MPP databases such as Snowflake.

  • You are comfortable building and deploying applications in public clouds, in particular in the AWS cloud.

  • You know how to write distributed, high-volume services in Golang, Scala, or Java.

  • You have hands-on experience with a large number of technologies and programming languages. It allows you to choose the right tool for job, and to not be afraid of contributing to systems across the whole FindHotel organisation.

  • You are knowledgeable about data modeling, data access, and data storage techniques.

  • You appreciate agile software processes, data-driven development, reliability, and responsible experimentation.

  • You strive for excellence, clarity and transparency, shipping business value as early as possible, and building incrementally afterwards.

  • You are ambitious and feel motivated by building a customer product that disrupts the global industry of hotel bookings.

 

Why joining us now?

  • This year we will be helping +1M customers around the world find better hotel deals, using data, transparency & industry-leading features.

  • We are in fast growth mode and have been growing bookings by +100% Year-Over-Year for the past 2 years and plan to continue doing so in the coming years.

  • From our beginnings as an organisation that excelled in User Acquisition, we have grown into an Engineering and Product-driven organisation. Our independence and the maturity that we have achieved in terms of User Acquisition, Engineering and Product enables us to be disruptive and build customer features that nobody else in the industry will.
