What we’re looking for in you
You are passionate and creative. You have deep expertise, openness, flexibility and drive. Practicality and common sense are important to us.
You are focused on moving the business forward. You don't just build software for the sake of it (notwithstanding deep appreciation for the craft), but to help our customers find the right hotel, every time.
You have a keen interest in the business, not just a given technical problem. You seek to understand the big picture and how your work fits into it.
You get excited about big, hairy technical problems like we do.
