With millions of diners, tens of thousands of restaurants, and 23+ years of experience, OpenTable, part of Booking Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKNG), is an industry leader with a unique insight into the world of hospitality. We champion restaurants, bars, wineries, and other venues around the world, helping them attract guests, manage capacity, improve operations and maximize revenue.
Every employee at OpenTable has a tangible impact on what we do and how we do it. You’ll also be part of a global network that includes OpenTable and KAYAK's portfolio of travel brands including Swoodoo, checkfelix, momondo, Cheapflights, Mundi and HotelsCombined.
Hospitality is all about taking care of others, and it defines our culture. You’ll work in a welcoming and inclusive environment, and get the benefits, flexibility, and support you need to succeed.
At OpenTable, we take pleasure in Software Development. We believe that velocity comes from a dedication to clean code and proven engineering principles. We deliver creative products through rapid, continuous development. We move fast, release frequently, and believe strongly in automated testing to help maintain our quality and velocity. We break things sometimes - and that’s fine. We learn from it. Millions of diners and thousands of restaurants around the globe use our products. If you are excited by constantly challenging engineering processes and can deliver exceptional quality in a fast paced, agile environment, we'd like to meet you. Bonus points if you love restaurants too.
You love to code. You’re curious, passionate and constantly thinking about making code clean and better. You love technology and enjoy finding better ways to do things. You want to share what you discover and feel energized when you can learn from the people around you. When you build software, you consider how people will use it from all angles. You take pride in carefully honing your work until it feels reliable and effortless to use. You are calm during incidents when debugging production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
As a member of this team, you'll be responsible for developing a variety of products and integrations which help connect OpenTable Restaurants with other products and systems so that they are able to seamlessly take advantage of a plethora of products built by other companies. Along with this, you will also contribute to other product feature areas and core engineering initiatives across the OpenTable for Restaurants product.
All of us are engineers, and we like to operate in a self-driven culture of ownership. You will own one or more of the product components, working with product managers to help in scoping features, contributing towards technical architecture and having primary responsibility for actual implementation of code and automated tests.
