Engineering Manager

We are looking for an Engineering Manager for our Catalog AND an Engineering Manager for our Partnerships team to lead people, guide technical decisions and help develop our marketplace and related customer channels.  You will assume line management of existing frontend and backend engineers, have the budget and opportunity to hire more while working with cross functional mission teams composed of top notch designers, analysis and product managers.  This is your chance to have a direct impact on the business and our customers around the globe.

Catalog Team Mission:

Elevate the richness and quality of the information we provide to our travellers and suppliers.

This team owns the catalog infrastructure and the tools used by the Suppliers to edit and populate all the catalog metadata.

The challenge here is to have enough structured informations to be able to distinguish one activity from the other or to be able to group all equal activities to curate the chaos for the travellers.  This data also influences other teams and has an impact across the business.

Partnerships Team Mission:

Deliver best in-class tools and experiences for our online partners in the travel and tourism industry.  This team creates awesome travel products by combining the services of selected partners, such as airlines and hotels, with GetYourGuide’s marketplace of tours and activities.

The challenge here is to build an engaging online partner portal, helping travel bloggers sign-up, integrate and send traffic to monetise their web audience with our vast inventory.  You will also be working externally with leading brands to build custom integrations into their products.
