Senior Software Engineer - Full Stack
Travel. It’s one of life’s simple pleasures. But, ooof, planning it can feel like hard work. For the last 18 years we’ve been on a mission to empower every traveller with innovative tools, insights and experiences that help people get to where they’re going, so they can spend more time out exploring the world, and less time anxiously bouncing around 25 browser tabs and endless spreadsheets. Our traveller-first approach drives everything we do and it’s never been more important than it is today.
When we launched as a flight comparison site back in 2003, we changed the game by helping travellers feel smart, like they were in on a secret, that promise hasn’t changed. And today, while we’re a world leader in travel, with millions of people using our products every single day we know there’s so much more we can be doing.
Being part of Skyscanner means joining a team hell bent on building the world’s most innovative, and helpful travel experiences possible. We’re hugely ambitious and believe we have the chance to genuinely challenge and disrupt the industry.
Bold. Intense. Rewarding..
You’ve either worked on modern front end technologies and frameworks such as React, Typescript, ES6, Sass/Less, Webpack and npm to name but a few; and have some experience in Node.js, Python, Java, or other server scripting technologies.
You’ll be capable of building a front end code base and creating stunning products, design and UX. And behind your technical skills will be a modern engineering mindset and a team-focused approach. It means you’ll be keen to explore options through A/B testing and give guidance to colleagues, and explain the difference between Single Page Apps and Server-Side Rendering.
As a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll build key product feature components. Through your work, you’ll define and implement services that make up a vital sub-system in your area. There’ll be the chance to collaborate across product engineering, from initial ideas to the roll out of solutions, which means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn and influence.
We need your expertise to help us do something great for 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.
Skyscanner’s unwavering commitment to our travellers and partners remains as strong as ever. We’re confident that our travellers’ appetite to explore the world will return, and we will need your expertise to help us make travel more sustainable and straightforward, along with all the new considerations of an evolving industry.
Already a global leader in travel, we want to elevate the way we work to a whole other level. In return, you’ll get meaningful things like medical insurance, health screenings, headspace subscriptions, a home office allowance and the option to buy more holiday. You’ll have the opportunity to work from any country for 4 weeks a year, and 30 days in our other global offices. Everything, in other words, to help you relax and give your best.
You’ll join a brilliantly diverse group from all corners of the world. After all, travel is about finding new perspectives and experiencing new people and cultures – and Skyscanner is strongest when our teams are both inclusive and diverse. We recognise and challenge everyday biases, remove obstacles to inclusion and ensure all our people can thrive and be themselves.
