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. 

Chances are, if you’ve ever booked a tour or activity, you’ve interacted with Rezdy’s platform. On the one hand, we help ‘experience’ suppliers, 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 inventory to resell to expand their own customer offering, such as online travel agencies (OTAs), tourist information centres, hotel concierges and local travel agents.

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 craft high quality software for a highly available SaaS platform.

We're looking for an ambitious Software Engineer who gets excited about designing, building and architecting robust software applications and solutions. The role will be predominantly focused on Booking Software development and will require consideration for the full stack, UI / UX, monolithic and microservice architecture. The kind of engineers we want to work with will have solid professional, commercial experience with modern Java and JavaScript frameworks (e.g. SpringBoot and ReactJS) with a smattering of PHP, but also care deeply about product usability, user experience and design.

What You’ll Do:

  • Deliver world class software that delights our customers and exceeds the expectations of our business
  • Collaborate with a squad of experienced software engineers on software engineering best practices with a focus on shipping code and delivering quality solutions
  • Contribute to discussions to help size, estimate and manage delivery of product backlogs
  • Support and promote an agile development environment, collaborating with an existing high performing, agile product and software engineering team

  • Contribute in scoping future functionality and developing feature specs through collaboration with product and design teams

  • Contribute to developmental technology experimentation, selection and implementation
  • Engage across the business to create and refine our software applications and platforms
  • Contribute to the engineering roadmap
  • Share and learn best practises, latest technologies and programming language

What’s Required:

The role will require you to be proficient with the computer science fundamentals such as algorithms and system design. You will have working knowledge and commercial experience with distributed systems and RESTful APIs, including best practices with relation to system resilience, transaction management, connection pooling, retry policies, circuit breaking and timeouts.

  • Computer Science / Software Engineering degree an advantage
  • Deep passion for web technologies and an ability to evangelise to the team
