Senior Full Stack Engineer

“In this internet based economy every Software Engineer is a polyglot by necessity. We’re required to switch technologies efficiently, relying on our fundamental engineering skill-set to progress. That’s not to say we should all be generalists, specialists are also needed, but the core and fundamental skills of a specialist can be applied in many technologies.” – Skyscanner Senior Architect & Tribe Lead

Skyscanner is the world’s travel search engine with ambitions to be everybody’s personal travel assistant. As a full stack engineer, we want to employ your problem solving capabilities. Solving complex scalability challenges, proposing new design and systems solutions and all the while, instigating and promoting best engineering practices. To be really useful to us, you should have across the board experience – a bit of database, a bit of back end as well as some UX familiarity into the bargain – after all, if you don’t know what can go wrong, you won’t know how to fix it. We’re looking for exceptional engineers who can make difficult decisions and take ownership of a problem from end to end.

If you hate doing what you’ve always done but love finding new and better solutions, make our technical challenges part of your new engineering problems – apply today!

You can offer us:

A hunger to lead in a continuous learning culture, a desire to solve complex technical challenges, a passion for technology and tech leadership and ultimately a commitment to applying engineering best practices in order to produce top quality solutions.

We can offer you:

An excellent career move.

The chance to work with great developers, in fact, great people across the board.

The space to be trusted to do what you do best and to make decisions that matter.

The potential to tackle big stuff, not small stuff.
What do you need to apply?

We’re looking for people across all levels of experience and we’re more concerned with what you can do than what you have done. As a minimum, a Computer Science degree or similar; experience in a web economy or other tech environment; proficiency in object-oriented programming, automated testing, front and back end web development and database technologies.
