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, and our secret is in our unique proprietary technology that connects people directly to everything the travel industry has to offer.
Are you looking to build your career in a place where you can really make an impact? Where you can work with and learn from some of the best innovators in the internet economy space? Are you keen to make an impact by shaping the future of travel?
We are looking for systems engineers who have a passion for innovation and eagerness to learn new technologies. We operate small empowered squads who have the power to choose their own technologies and typically work to sprint periods of two weeks. Our engineers are constantly innovating and thrive on new challenges and there are opportunities to gain experience across different squads through rotations.
Whether you want to build and improve the engine that powers Skyscanner across all platforms or enable our foundational services to support the vision of a Digital Workplace, we want to hear from you.
