Job Description

Senior Software Engineer - Digital Product

Tech - London

Are you excited about building products in cross-functional teams to deliver a best-in-class user experience?

Do you want to help reduce the friction between searching for a holiday and booking one, giving users the ability to search by what they want to do - as well as where they want to go - matching them with the best deals on the market?

The loveholidays flexible search experience removes traditional constraints, enabling users to discover great holidays based on the criteria they choose, which is even more important in the contemporary travel landscape. Results can be filtered by star rating, facilities, TripAdvisor rating or even average temperature; shifting the focus from destination to experience.

Senior Software Engineer - Digital Product Responsibilities:
  • Work on our brand new Rust experimentation platform that performs in microseconds at the Fastly Edge.
  • Figure out how we create complex, customisable and data-driven landing pages that our teams can build on our new headless CMS.
  • Integrate our DialogFlow chatbots into our brand new mobile application and see how customers interact with them.
  • Figure out how to create seamless integrations between our Design System and Figma to empower designers and engineers.
  • Contribute back to open source projects as we push the boundaries of performance in our web applications.
  • Build out our new session store and accounts system to build a more personalised experience for customers.
  • You are someone that is keen to deepen your skills in all of the above and expand even further in your engineering career. Tech stacks are always subject to change and we hope you can influence the future of loveholidays.
A few of the technologies we employ:
  • TypeScript
  • Rust
  • GraphQL
  • Preact
  • Python
  • Golang
  • Kubernetes
