Do you enjoy constantly learning and growing? Do you like travel and want to take part in changing the travel industry? Then read on, you’ll probably love being part of our team!

About a year ago, Berlin-based trip.me and Bristol-based TravelLocal joined forces to become the leading online platform for personalized travel. 

Our modern web platform connects locally-owned travel companies in more than 100 destinations worldwide with our global client base of travelers, to create and deliver amazing tailor-made holidays

What you’ll do:

  • You are an effective communicator (in English) when talking with other members of the dev team, product managers, and external stakeholders.
  • You are comfortable working fully remotely and often independently, although well connected to the rest of the team through our communication tools and practices (e.g. Scrum meetings).

You’ll have an edge if:

  • You have experience with frontend technologies like React and a sense for good UX.
  • You have experience with Docker & AWS or another one of the big cloud infrastructure providers.
  • You have worked in a Scrum team or other agile process.
