Skyscanner is a leading global travel search site and app, a place where people are inspired to plan and book direct from millions of travel options at the best prices. We employ over 1000 staff across eleven offices globally, and, having reached market leader status, we were recently acquired by Chinese online travel company Ctrip in a deal valued at £1.4bn. While we remain operationally independent, our acquisition by Ctrip allows us to take the business to the next level of accelerated global growth. It’s a hugely exciting time for Skyscanner and the over 80m people who use us every month. We are unbiased and free; our secret is in our unique proprietary technology that connects people directly to everything the travel industry has to offer.
We're seeking senior mobile engineers to join us in our London office and be part of our highly distributed global team. We have a mantra for scaling and innovation and as such we are recruiting across several of our teams and this role has arisen due to that continued growth.
We’re building some kickass tooling, with deploy pipelines out of the box to get moving quickly and exploring server side/hybrid rendering strategies for our iOS and Android apps as well as looking at ReactNative.
If you enjoy a range of technical challenges across app development where we are building and shipping features from the ground up, then this could be the role for you. Product teams working on mobile apps also do data analysis, design systems and release services which all adds up to a mobile experience.
Skyscanner operates in a Tribes and Squads model and we have created an engineering culture where there is a high level of trust, autonomy and transparency. Our engineers work in autonomous teams (squads), they create their own backlog, they ship code whenever they want and don’t have dependencies in order to deliver to their users. Our engine uses global scale services, big data and machine learning to capture, normalise and make sense of real time information from our thousands of partners.
