Senior Software Engineer - Distributed Systems

Engineering

Edinburgh

Rewarding. Energising. Open.

Life as a Senior Software Engineer feels different at Skyscanner. ‘Good’ different, that is. It’s something to do with the way we work together, learn alongside one another and support each other. The fact we own our work. It’s fast-paced and intense. And we think life should always be this way.

Java, Python, Docker and AWS – you’ll be up to speed with at least two of them, and keen to build your knowledge on them all. Our Distributed workflow includes Hadoop/Spark, SQL, Airflow and Jupyter. So, as a skilled  Senior Software Engineer, your sound tech experience of Agile/Lean methodologies will be vital for continuous improvement. You always base your decisions on solid data and metrics. But while this technical talent is essential, you’ll also need the drive to produce outstanding work. So you’ll break challenges into bite-size tasks, mentor team mates and always demand quality.

We need your expertise to help us do something great for over 100 million travellers: make booking stays and journeys more sustainable and straightforward. It involves technical challenges and the latest technology, from machine learning and cloud services to world-class APIs. But that’s ok by you – in fact, it’s exactly what you want.

Working in our global team, you’ll be in charge of developing a whole range of key product features. That means defining and implementing services that make up a vital sub-system in your area. As you work, you’ll collaborate with product engineers and influence their thinking. Though you’ll be accountable for your own projects and trusted to deliver, you’ll also form part of a broader team that takes collective responsibility for making success happen.

Already a global leader in travel, we want to elevate the way we work to a whole other level. In return, you’ll get important things like medical insurance, health screenings, headspace subscriptions, the option to buy more holiday and a support programme for you and your loved ones.  We’ll also help you donate to good causes and spend time volunteering. And you’ll have the opportunity to work from your home country for 3 weeks a year, and 30 days in our other global offices. Everything, in other words, to help you relax and give your best.
