At OTA Insight, we’re helping the hospitality industry with our BI solution to visualise and leverage its data in the most simple way so that they can make better revenue, distribution and marketing decisions.

Last year was our 10 year anniversary and it was a big one! We raised a series B funding and have welcomed two companies to our organisation. With 400+ people, representing 36 nationalities living in 30 different countries, we are a fun, collaborative and committed team that works hard to achieve amazing results. Ready to take off and join this rocketship in revolutionising the hotel sector? 🚀

About the position:

In a fast-growing scale-up priorities might shift from time to time. You’ll gain experience and ownership in different domains depending on your ambition, but here are some general topics:

  • Build new features from idea to implementation. Work with our product and design teams to find the best solution for our customers. Collaborate with the other engineering teams to work out the technical specifications and implementation details. Always keeping good UX, performance and scalability in mind.
  • Work on keeping a high technical standard, together with the rest of the frontend teams. This would entail, but is not limited to, keeping up with the latest technologies, constantly thinking about our current architecture and how we can improve implementations.
  • Provide ongoing support to your team members and other teams in the company. We have a very open and flat structure and have a very short feedback loop on both internal and customer questions.

Technologies you’ll work with:

Ember.js, Sass, Stencil.js, Storybook, Lerna, Gitlab, Docker, Google Cloud

(feel free to ask us why these are the best fit for us)

We welcome:

  • Experience with design systems or component libraries.

About the compensation:

  • A highly competitive compensation package;

  • The chance to grow and evolve the backend glue at a fast-growing scale-up;
  • A flexible working environment where you can work from home or at one of our offices;
  • No shortage of snacks, baristas… and a budget to account for home office expenses;
  • Two annual Detox Days, on top of your personal holidays, when we take some time away from our computers with the entire company;
  • A choose-your-own transportation budget should you choose to come to the office;
  • Of course an insurance package that’s the best in the business. Just in case, for that little extra peace of mind.
