Engineering Manager - Distributed Systems
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.
Collaborative. Intense. Trustworthy.
It takes serious technical knowledge to head up an Engineering team. So, as a leader, you’ll need to be experienced, humble and also highly skilled. And whatever the problem, you’ll find the perfect solution by inspiring your team to work as one, getting them to perform with clear technical direction.
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 an Engineering Manager, you’ll guide your team to build robust, creative products, providing support and occasionally hands on development. You’ll know all about building scalable systems using cloud technologies. And you’ll also help Product Managers to define the product roadmap before inventing and developing fantastic new features. 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.
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
