About Us!
Stratajet is the world’s first real-time private jet booking platform, changing the way people travel. With Stratajet, it’s easy to search, compare and book a private jet straight from your desktop or smartphone. We believe in making private aviation faster, simpler and accessible to more people.

We are on the lookout for a talented Technical Lead to join our vibrant, dynamic and collaborative team based in our amazing offices in Farringdon, London. You will be responsible for defining the architectural direction of our platform and its APIs, for leading, inspiring and evolving the team; ensuring the quality of code delivered is to an exceptional standard.

You’ll be working on…

  • Leading our team of platform engineers
  • Driving forward our application architecture and technical strategy
  • Defining and leading projects on our existing Ruby on Rails application to add features, pay down technical debt and improve its performance and maintainability

  • Keeping your skills sharp by contributing code

Engineering Culture

We are a close-knit bunch of technologists who are passionate about changing the way people fly. Working in the aviation industry poses some unique challenges beyond typical web development and we pride ourselves in using the appropriate technology for the job, leading to a tech stack that includes Ruby on Rails, Swift, Angular, .NET, Go and AWS, with a continuous deployment infrastructure and a focus on automated testing. We’re excited about testing Clojure and/or Elixir in the coming months for new microservices.

Our diverse and international team allows us to bring different perspectives to the technical and business problems we face, enabling us to constantly improve our platform and product offering.

But… we also know how to blow off steam with regular socials, ping-pong tournaments, game nights and an inquisitive desire to find the Ballmer Peak!
