BookingGo is looking for a frontend software engineer to work on our Rides product.
Working on a significant new product,Â your role will involve delivering and enhancing an exciting new multi-tiered high performance website. You will work in a small Agile team using a broad range of leading edge technologies.
This is a fantastic opportunity to experience the excitement of working in a start-up atmosphere with the backing and security of a large and very successful e-commerce business supporting you. Â
We want people who will thrive in a start-up environment, who are motivated, enthusiastic about technology, have the drive to deliver and succeed and always have the thoughts of both the customer and the business in mind when delivering.
Weâ€™re BookingGo, the ground transport division of Booking.com.
Weâ€™re the ones who empower people to get where theyâ€™re going. Whether theyâ€™re taking the wheel or sitting back and leaving it to the driver. Whether theyâ€™re heading straight from A to B or enjoying the freedom to go wherever their journey takes them.
To do that, we operate multiple brands:
Booking.com â€“ Weâ€™re the transport arm of the worldâ€™s leading travel booking site.
Rentalcars.com â€“ The worldâ€™s biggest online car rental service, putting customers behind the wheel at over 50,000 locations worldwide.
Rideways â€“ Finding the best way for each customer to get from A to B.
Connect â€“ Bringing our tried-and-tested magic to our partnersâ€™ sites, delivering seamless travel experiences through brands our customers already know and love.
With our HQ in Manchester, weâ€™re part of the worldwide Booking.com family. At the same time, weâ€™re proud of our own unique identity. Speaking 42 languages, our 1,600+ 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 peopleâ€™s. Itâ€™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. Just search â€œManchesterâ€™s coolest officeâ€ and see for yourself.
And weâ€™re in good company. Together with priceline.com, KAYAK, agoda.com, and OpenTable, weâ€™re part of Booking Holdings, the world leader in online travel and related services.
The Rides team is a multi-skilled group of more than 80 people, working as a separate group within the broader business. We have a fast-paced, â€œstart-upâ€ environment sharing all the upsides of being part of a bigger business, but with the speed, drive and autonomy of an independent, early-stage start-up.
We have big ambitions and next year we intend to scale both our business and the team in Manchester massively. Â Weâ€™re aiming to deliver millions of rides to millions of customers next year (compared to the ~8 million annual bookings of Rentalcars.com), alongside at least doubling the size of our team. Come join us to be part of one of the best product-focused growth stories in the North-West, contribute to our success and learn a huge amount in the process!
