Job Description

Will you join us on a journey to disrupt the trillion dollar travel industry? We are looking for a Head of Engineering to help us leverage Technology to boost our growth, and to deliver customer features that nobody else in the industry will provide.

Travel is the one thing that opens minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. We are on a mission to get every traveler the best accommodation deal. A core strategy to achieve this mission is using Data and Technology more effectively than anybody else in the industry. As the leader of our Engineering team you will play a key role in the implementation of this strategy by creating a high performing engineering team.


What you’ll do:

  • You will develop, hire and enable incredible engineering leaders and scale our team.

  • You will lead technology, delivery, innovation, and business impact of an engineering team of 23 (and growing).

  • You will partner closely with the Product chapter and its leaders.

  • You will lead the adoption of Agile development methodologies across the organisation.

  • You will build a strong Engineering culture and will continuously aim to raise the bar of our Engineering practice.

  • You will enable collaboration and knowledge sharing across Engineering teams.

  • Occasionally you will personally lead high-impact development projects that may involve high risk, or that due to any other circumstances the company may consider that require hands on leadership from the Head of Engineering.



Who you are:

  • You are passionate about the opportunity of using technology to disrupt the travel industry.

  • You thrive when developing great people, not just great products.

  • You have a broad engineering background and have ideally led a large team of Engineers in one or more technologically advanced organisations.

  • You have operated successfully in the past as a “leader of leaders”

  • You are well-versed in data-driven and data-informed product development.

  • You are an advocate of Agile development methodologies.

  • You want to make an impact.


Why joining us now?

  • This year we will be helping +1M customers around the world book better hotel deals, using data, transparency & industry-leading features.

  • We are in fast growth mode and have been growing bookings by +100% Year-Over-Year for the past 2 years and plan to continue doing so in the coming years.

  • From our early beginnings as an organisation that excelled in User Acquisition, we have grown into an Engineering and Product-driven organisation. Our independence from major players in the industry, and the maturity that we have achieved in terms of User Acquisition, Engineering and Product enables us to be disruptive and build customer features that nobody else in the industry will.
