Holiday Extras are looking for software engineers to come and use cutting edge technology to helps us revolutionise how customers (7 million and growing) travel better.

We’ve got a lot of great work to do and believe in using tried and tested tools that enable us to push the boundaries of what is possible, fast. You can expect to be working daily with Javascript, using continuous delivery tooling. If you’re updating and building in our back end we use Node.js® and if you’re jumping into our front end you’d be working with React.js and Redux.js, just to name a few technologies.

We know great Engineers can adapt to other tech quickly, so if javascript isn’t your thing right now that’s not a deal breaker as long as you want to learn! We build many of our tools in-house but also love open source so as well as taking much from the community you’ll find a lot of our codebase openly available on GitHub and how we work on our culture repo.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer exciting challenges, whilst also providing a flexible, fulfilling environment in which to work. We're located across the UK so your desk could be in the heart of the Kent countryside at our HQ, 5 minutes from the beach. In one of our hubs in Birmingham, perfectly located near Birmingham International. Or out tech hub in Sofia, Bulgaria which we have grown to 20 Engineers - it’s an exciting time to join our team, no matter which hub you are are based in.

Our Learning Academy, quiet Lounge, supportive environment and focus on personal development, help our team members grow and become experts in their field! We have fortnightly “Project Lounge” days where you have the chance to work on anything extending your knowledge in different business areas or simply collaborate on a project to make a difference to the business. If you’ve got a few minutes check out our blog and see what our developers have to say.

You will be joining at an exciting period of exceptional projected growth; Our people move fast and deliver excellence at pace, never accepting second best. We may have been in business 36 years, but Holiday Extras is an innovative and entrepreneurial travel-tech business with a startup mentality.
