VP Engineering 

  • Growing International travel tech company based in Sydney
  • Join a dynamic team passionate about creating the best product for our Customers
  • New and exciting opportunity for you to bring all your experience and talent

Rezdy is the world’s leading independent B2B cloud-based booking and distribution platform in the experiences sector. Our mission is to power the growth of the Experiences Industry through tools and connections that make life easier. 

If you’ve ever booked a tour or activity, chances are you’ve interacted with Rezdy’s platform. On the one hand, we help ‘experience’ providers, such as whale watching tours, cooking schools and amusement parks, manage their bookings online and connect with a wide distribution and resale network. On the other hand, we help those looking for experiences and products to resell, such as online travel agencies (OTAs), tourist information centres, hotel concierges and local travel agents, to expand their own customer offering.

The engineering and product teams at Rezdy are transforming how we design and build software solutions for our users. We are delivering more value, much faster as we leverage a fine grained microservice architecture approach. This role gives you the opportunity to have an impact on defining the tools, services and principles we use to engineer high quality software for a highly available SaaS platform.

Reporting to the CTO, the VP Engineering is an exciting role, leading and managing our software engineering teams who are building market leading software applications and platforms.
