Senior Systems Engineer-Employee Enablement Tribe



Innovative. Brave. Straightforward.

At Skyscanner, we like to keep things simple. Working here involves collaboration, ownership and bags of innovation. We’re not afraid to admit that it’s different from the norm. But if you’re our kind of Systems Engineer, you’ll feel right at home.  

Worked with JIRA, Confluence, Slack, Trello, Sharepoint, Ansible and Cloudformation? If there are some you haven’t used before, we’re happy to give you training. You’ll be using these technologies to create a truly digital workplace for our thousands of employees. And that involves designing and operating cloud-native systems and services, including open-source, internally-built and commercial third-party solutions. You can expect system administration and application support; troubleshooting and diagnosis; and automation and scripting. And on top of that, you’ll be administering Linux in AWS. While a passion for learning new technologies will take you far in this role, great communication skills will be essential when it comes to explaining complex technical changes.

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 – but that’s ok by you. In fact, it’s exactly what you want.

As a Senior Systems Engineer, you’ll be helping our people and partners share, connect and collaborate. It means administering key business applications, updating infrastructure hosted on AWS and bringing in new tools, systems and services. You’ll also automate where possible and help users to master tools and systems. 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.
