(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 join 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.

What You’ll Work On

We are building a new full-stack team from the ground up that will innovate in the payments domain and develop the next generation of our payments infrastructure.

We are looking for engineers who can help us extend our payments platform and develop our underlying payments infrastructure, customer facing interfaces, and internal tools. You and your team will be responsible for your code throughout all phases of the life cycle. You build it, deploy it, monitor it, improve it, and scale it. All our solutions are required to scale to meet increasing demand. 

We build our services on the JVM using Java and on the .NET platform using C#. Our data is stored in SQL and NoSQL databases. Our applications are written in modern React with Hooks and Redux using TypeScript. We test with React Testing Library and Cypress, work in Node.js, and collaborate closely with backend engineers, product managers, designers and delivery managers. Our services run on Kubernetes for large-scale distributed applications.  

About You

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 will help us:

  • Write completely new user experiences using modern frontend tools that help restaurants run their businesses

  • Improve our existing applications using your experience and creativity

  • Define new features by working closely with product managers and designers

  • Deliver impactful initiatives that improve the lives of restaurateurs

You’ll fit right in if:

  • You have an empathetic mindset and enjoy working with developers, designers and product owners of all career levels

  • You have 5+ years of experience with JavaScript or TypeScript, and React

  • You can drive projects from technical planning all the way to production

  • You enjoy crafting great web experiences using semantic HTML and CSS

  • Proven experience designing and building Restful APIs and Microservices architecture

  • Docker and container-based deployment


  • Work from (almost) anywhere; wherever you do your best work.

  • Mental Health Well-being: 6 company paid therapy sessions, subscription to a meditation app, wellbeing speaker series and resources.

  • Annual Health and Wellness Reimbursement.

  • 1 floating day off per year to celebrate your birthday or another occasion of your choice!

  • Company-wide weeks off each year: the whole team recharges (and returns without a pile-up of work!).
