Full-stack Developer - Trip Foundations Org

Manchester, UK


It wasn’t so long ago that booking a trip to see the Eiffel Tower, stroll down New York’s iconic Madison Avenue or feel the sand between our toes on Copacabana Beach was simply a matter of a few taps on our smartphone. In fact, that’s what we do at Booking.com. We make it easier for everyone to experience the world. And while that world might feel a little farther away right now, we’re busy preparing for when the world is ready to travel once more. Across our offices worldwide, we continue to innovate. To solve for some of the most complex challenges in travel and technology, and to plan for the exciting developments that lie ahead. With strategic long-term investments into what we believe the future of travel can be, we are opening up new career opportunities that will have a strong impact on our mission. We are united in the belief that our very human desire to explore the planet’s beauty and discover more about other people and cultures will endure. The world is waiting for us. Together, we will be ready.

 

With over 1.6 million room nights booked every day, accommodation represents the largest share of our business to date. Our mission is to deliver the best customer experience and the most varied selection of properties.

 

At Booking.com we combine the best traits of a start-up with the resources of planet Earth’s  #1 accommodation website. We are working towards creating the ultimate travel experience, building and improving great products for both travellers and the accommodation partners.

Who we are and what is our mission as a unit?

Are you curious about the complexities in discovering and leveraging the available travel products, deals or promotions while planning your trips? We know that travel means more than booking a hotel room or flight. The places you visit, the things you see, the people you meet; there are countless moments that shape every travel experience. Our Trip Exposure Team under Trip Foundations org is responsible to help customers discover and book all the best and relevant travel products, promotions and deals that are transparent, compelling, competitive and personalized at the right time in their journey in a most consistent way.
