Senior Data Engineer

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. 

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 a Senior Data Engineer.

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 that will support our ambitious growth plans. We are actively applying the Scrum framework and expect our tech leads to take a leading role in working with their teams to get enhancements delivered to the business. 

At Travix we continuously enhance, re-factor and in some cases rebuilt applications to be able to handle more brands and countries, to improve the user experience and to optimise business processes. These applications generate large amounts of data that we collect and store to make informed decisions and develop data-driven products. To increase the efficiency and adoption of the data stack within the organisation we need your expert opinion in helping us drive the teams towards delivering more business value. Our goal is to further increase self-service of data collection and analytics within all areas of our organisation.

 

We are an open organization where your opinion is valued, so be prepared for open discussions, wild ideas and most of all fun! We are looking for a senior data engineer who’s comfortable working on batch (bounded) and streaming (unbounded) data collection and processing, as well as efficiently modeling data for analytics and complex querying. We are adding more applications and tools to our data stack, so we expect knowledge on application and library development. As a senior data engineer, you should be comfortable collaborating with other teams and sharing (technical) knowledge in and beyond your own team. 

 

In the data stack at Travix we use the following technologies: Python, Java, Airflow, Apache Beam (Google Dataflow), BigQuery, Cloud Storage, Pub/Sub, Protocol Buffer, Kubernetes.

As a Senior Data Engineer, you will work as part of a scrum team to build products and services on Travix's technology platform. You’re familiar with best practices around reliable data pipelines (both batch and streaming), data modeling techniques and software engineering. You enjoy working in an environment that will encourage creative thinking and an environment of innovation

Responsibilities

  • Developing products and services as part of a scrum team
  • Leveraging your software engineering expertise to coach less experienced engineers solve challenging problems
  • Nurturing and encouraging creativity, as Travix offers a huge amount of freedom from a technology and ownership stand-point

This position comes with the autonomy to introduce your own ideas and creativity to build a strong and solid technical environment. 

Your Profile

  • Strong programming skills in Python and SQL
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • Fluent English 
  • Affinity with working in an Agile development environment 
  • If you have experience in working with big data, high volume websites, eCommerce or in the travel industry, it is definitely an advantage

Why work at Travix?

  • You’ll be working in an inspiring, informal but challenging environment 
  • We have technically challenging projects 
  • There’s plenty of room for initiative and creativity
  • Our office is in the heart of Amsterdam City, near Centraal Station! 

What you can expect
