Senior Software Engineer

Technology has revolutionised the world we live in, yet somehow travel has stayed much the same as it was 30 years ago. Seatfrog is here to change that.

We’re on a mission to take every journey beyond the ordinary for millions of people all over the globe, empowering them to transform their travel experience with technology that’s a joy to use.

We’re building a stellar team to achieve our audacious goals. We strive to create an environment where you can do your best work. Join us, and you’ll be challenged and supported in equal measure. Ours is a culture with spirit and substance and our people are empowered to make the bold decisions others wouldn’t.

To help us on our journey, we’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our London office. Fancy coming along for the ride? Apply below!

WHAT WE DO

The Engineering team at Seatfrog deliver products that are delightful to use and driven by customer needs. Our platform spans native mobile apps, APIs and data dashboards all driven by machine-learning algorithms.

Since we work in an XP environment, collaboration is in our DNA - we pair on a regular basis and avoid having silos of information, so each one of our polyglot developers will touch every part of the tech stack. From the infrastructure in terraform, the deployment in clusters, monitoring, alerting, coding of the different apps and API’s.

We’ve built integrations with some of the biggest travel platforms around the world, and we’re looking for a client-facing, solutions focussed Backend Engineer to join our budding integration team in our London office.

We have 2 native mobile apps that we’re continuously developing, for Android and iOS. We also have backend and databases to continue evolving and maintaining.

SO HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL BE UP TO:

  • Breaking down your projects into clear deliverables, implementing and delivering them with focus on short feedback loops.
  • Pairing while developing to have a continuous review of the code, enhancing its design and implementation quality, thus reducing maintenance in the long term.
  • Writing and running automated tests to shorten your integration cycles and improve code quality.
  • Supporting developers across product teams on other development tasks as required and mentoring other team members.
  • Collaborating with other product teams for seamless client onboarding and a smooth launch.
  • Contributing to our ever-evolving Engineering culture.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • A degree in computer science or equivalent, and a wealth of relevant commercial experience in a variety of programming languages.
  • A passion for new technology; you are truly language agnostic and able to pick up new languages quickly.
  • You are mindful of security and handling sensitive data.
  • You have a solid understanding of Git and its workflows and writing test code comes as second nature to you.
  • You have worked with a wide variety of technologies across front-end, back-end, devops and product development.
  • Great written and verbal communication skills that allow you to discuss problems and develop solutions with technical and non-technical stakeholders - you’re used to, and enjoy, working cross-functionally and with external stakeholders.
  • Experience in gathering and documenting functional and technical solutions.
  • Experience in pair programming a plus, interest in XP a must. 

WHAT’S ON OFFER

  • A fantastic opportunity to join a global software company, and shape the growth of our platform.
  • A chance to work in and help shape an XP environment where continuous improvement isn’t just something we talk about - its who we are.
  • A personalised development and growth plan to help you progress in your role and create a long term career path for you within Seatfrog.
  • Health insurance via Vitality with added extras that encourage you to get out, get active and stay healthy.
  • The latest gear and best tools so you can do your greatest work.
  • Off-peak travel - so you can swap a public holiday with any day you like so you can get away without the crowds
