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.

Collaborative. Intense. Trustworthy.  

It takes serious technical knowledge to head up a Marketing Data Engineering team. You will cover areas such as Databricks, distributed workflow (Hadoop/Spark), AWS, SQL, PySpark, Python. 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.

As a Marketing Data Engineering Manager, you will be responsible for fully owning the end to end collection and processing of our traveller and business data that assist the marketing teams in achieving their marketing goals and objectives. You'll guide your team to build robust, creative products, providing support and occasionally hands on development. You will know about processing and enhancing large data sets. And you'll also help Product Managers to define the product roadmap for our Marketing technology stack 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.

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.
