Skyscanner is a fast-paced tech company that just happens to be in the travel business. Today we’re the world’s travel search engine. Tomorrow, we’ll be everyone’s personal travel assistant. To get from here to there, we need to constantly and continuously offer our customers the best possible user experience. Which is where you come in!

The internet is growing at a phenomenal pace and mobile app development is advancing even faster. So we’re looking for mobile engineers who are one jump ahead of that rapidly accelerating curve.

Like you, Skyscanner is also on a high-speed growth journey. Over 50 million people a month trust us to turn their travel nightmares into sweet dreams. Increasingly, they’re doing this on mobile devices, resulting in over 60 million app downloads to date, and counting - which is where you come in. We’re currently expanding our app development capability and we’re looking for world-class mobile developers with mentoring or management experience to work within a small team of innovative engineers, in an ultra fast paced environment. We can offer you the flexibility and fast pace of a startup combined with the opportunity to develop products that are used by multiple millions of people every day. Products people actually want and find useful, built by a company that still has massive potential ahead of it.

To be clear, we aren’t just developing an app; we are building and shipping features from the ground up. Product teams working on mobile apps also do data analysis, design systems, and release services – which all builds up into a mobile experience. If you're flexible, eager to learn and can’t move forward fast enough - apply now.

You can offer us:

A hunger to learn, and learn fast. A desire to meet challenges. A passion for developing apps that work in a global and scalable environment. A commitment to applying engineering best practice to produce top quality solutions.
