Test Engineer - Taxi London

Job Title

Location: London

We're BookingGo, the ground transport division of Booking.com. We're the ones who empower people to get where they're going. Whether they're taking the wheel or sitting back and leaving it to the driver. Whether they're heading straight from A to B or enjoying the freedom to go wherever their journey takes them.

To do that, we offer car hire to our customers through our Rentalcars.com brand and car hire, taxis and ticketed transfer services through Booking.com. We also have a B2B solution, Rentalcars Connect, providing great ground transportation options to the customers of our partners

With our HQ in Manchester, we're part of the worldwide Booking.com family. At the same time, we're proud of our own unique identity. Speaking 42 languages, our 2,000+ staff come from all over the world, just like our customers. What brings us together is our love of adventure: our own as well as other people's. It's easy to be passionate about a job that enriches so many lives on a daily basis, and our workplace reflects our passion, our diversity, our global focus.

And we're in good company. Together with priceline.com, KAYAK, agoda.com, and OpenTable, we're part of Booking Holdings, the world leader in online travel and related services.

You will be part of our London Taxi team - a product innovation group building the next generation of transport solutions for our customers.

We launched our Taxi team three years ago with the goal of becoming the best way to get to and from the airport. We are now rapidly expanding Taxi for booking.com customers and suppliers, as well as building additional new transport products to get our customers from A to B in the best way possible.

We have set the team up as an internal start-up based in London. The team shares the upsides of being part of a bigger company - but with the speed, drive and autonomy of a fully independent, early-stage business.

You will be based in London, but with some travel to the head office in Manchester. You will also be working closely with our sister company Booking.com in Amsterdam.
