About the job
We are Europe’s largest airlines’ innovation unit and work on a variety of innovative projects from new ways of booking flights to the future of climate-neutral flying.
As a senior developer, you are someone who can see projects through from beginning to end, coach others, and self-manage. We’re looking for an eager person who can bring our team to the next level with their technical knowledge, people skills, and real-world experience.
On the technical side, extensive experience building high-traffic websites using Ruby and Ruby on Rails is a hard requirement. Experience with DevOps (AWS services, Terraform) is a plus but not required.
The Stack


  • Ruby on Rails backend & we're experimenting with Sorbet

  • Open API Specs for contract testing

  • Postgres

  • Terraform

  • Bonus: Amazon Web Services (RDS, ECS, Lambda, Cloudwatch)

  • Bonus: TypeScript, React/Vue


How we work

  • Our biweekly sprint planning call is our only regular meeting

  • For complex features, write a design doc before coding

  • All code goes through code review, reviews are split out evenly across the team

  • A dedicated "runner" fields ad-hoc requests and bug reports each week, so that everyone else can focus

  • We use Tuple for pair programming
