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.

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
