Engineering Manager

About us

Travix is a global online travel company operating in 39 countries from offices in the Netherlands, UK, Germany, India, Singapore and the USA. With our 5 brands (CheapTickets.nl, BudgetAir, Vayama, Vliegwinkel and Flugladen) and an extensive portfolio of 44 websites we are the market leader in several countries and growing rapidly on all continents.  We are passionate about what we do. On a daily basis, we help thousands of people to find the best flights. We inspire them and guide them through their travel journey. 

The Travix development organisation teams are continuously delivering new features in a fully automated test and deploy environment. Currently, the agile teams work closely with their Product Owners.  Teams are, in the main, following scrum, but there are a few that have adopted kanban. Development teams are based in Amsterdam (NL), London (UK) and Belarus.

Due to the growth of our business, we are constantly looking for new talent. As a result, the Product & Technology department at our office in Amsterdam is now looking for an Engineering Manager.

The challenge:

To face the everyday challenges of an online global player such as Travix, we need a world league development team that helps us build a solid technical foundation which will support our ambitious growth plans. We are actively applying the Scrum framework and expect our Engineering Managers to take a leading role in working with their teams to get enhancements delivered to the business. 

Our leading eCommerce sites as well as our mid & back office and Call Center Agency Dashboard are being continuously enhanced, re-factored and, in some cases, rebuilt to handle more brands and countries to bring full automation to our call centre and finance departments. To find the right balance, we need your expert opinion in helping us make the right decisions and drive the teams towards delivering more and more business value. Our goal is to deliver the best customer experience across web desktop, tablet and mobile channels. 

We are an open organization where your opinion is valued, so be prepared for open discussions, wild ideas and most of all fun!
