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 upgrade their seat and fill the 480M premium seats that travel empty every year 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 and haven't.

We’re looking for a Data Engineer to come on the journey and join our London office. Fancy coming along for the ride? Apply below!

About the team you'll be joining

You will design new systems and improve upon current ones whilst receiving training where required to reach personal career targets.

  • Self learner with the capability of learning new data technologies and quickly becoming proficient with them.
  • Capable of seeing the business potential of different technologies available.

What might progression look like within this role? 

  • Depending on you this position will evolve into a senior data engineer and eventually to a data engineering lead position.
