Senior Systems Engineer- Infrastructure



Skyscanner is proud to be the world’s most trusted travel app and website. Here, our mission is to lead the global transformation to modern and sustainable travel and ensure a seamless experience for all those who want to explore the planet while protecting it.

At Skyscanner, our global presence offers scale and our inclusive work environment gives everyone the chance to make a real impact. Wherever you’ll join us, you’ll work alongside people who’ll inspire you to achieve your best while tackling some of the most exciting challenges within the travel sector.

Proactive. Passionate. Proficient. 

You will be passionate about customer service, global distributed networks, cloud architectures (particularly AWS), have knowledge and exposure to firewall management (Palo Alto or similar), routing protocols (OSPF, BGP), virtualisation (Hyper-V), RADIUS/TACACS and technical troubleshooting. You will also be used to working in an Agile environment.

The role will sit within the Employee Enablement Tribe which is responsible for providing the best working environment possible for our people. The team is currently UK based but supports all of Skyscanner's people around the world. This includes the infrastructure that supports all our internal systems, including all aspects of office management and internal communications. You will be responsible for providing world class systems and support to all employees, physically and virtually. The primary role will be to offer expert support and technical direction for our distributed network systems.

You'll support and maintain all office networks and the server estate. You'll deploy and update infrastructure hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). You'll implement new tools, systems and services. You'll support Skyscanner’s internal userbase in the use and mastery of our toolset. You'll automate previously manual tasks. You'll collaborate with other squads in Employee Enablement, to move towards a truly digital workplace. 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


Travel means discovering new perspectives and experiencing diverse cultures. And we believe that travel is for everyone. We know that Skyscanner will be strongest when our team is both inclusive and diverse and we are committed to taking that journey together. We will recognise and challenge everyday biases, remove obstacles to inclusion and ensure that all of our people can thrive as their authentic selves
