The role will see you leading the development of parts of our marketplace platform that connects tour operators, travellers and third party distributors, including e-Commerce websites and multiple backend systems.

  • Eagerness to learn our business domain (without understanding our domain, you can’t write your best software)

It would be nice if you have:
