It wasn’t so long ago that booking a trip so 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.
At Booking.com, historically, we’ve had some really mature tooling for rolling out changes and monitoring them. However as we work on migrating to Kubernetes on private and public cloud, and the company grows, the variety of ways we roll out changes and platforms we run on has grown. This growth has also been accelerated by a move to service-oriented architecture.
This means that there is a huge opportunity for working on exciting projects around what we call release orchestration and release verification. Release orchestration has historically been our primary focus, working on strengthening the tooling for deploying changes as fast and safely as possible, and easily being able to monitor who is rolling out which services and statistics around that. One of the areas we want to focus on going forward is around release verification, improving observability and confidence around rolling out changes. Booking.com has a lot of mature observability tooling around monitoring services, but there is a huge opportunity to improve some of that when focusing on release verification and canary analysis, especially when adopting more modern developments around statistics and machine learning.
We are a performance-based company that offers career advancement and lucrative compensation, including bonuses and stock potential. We offer what we call the “Booking Deal” with other competitive perks and benefits. We have tech talks, trainings, and support you attending and speaking at global conferences.
This position is open to worldwide candidates and, in the case of relocation, we will assist you with a generous relocation package, ensuring a smooth transition to working and living in Amsterdam. We successfully relocate hundreds of IT professionals and their families to Amsterdam every year. Join us! 😉
