About the Company

Kiwi.com combines worldwide flights, bus, and train rides into unique itineraries. Our customers find better prices and get to travel more. We book these trips, guarantee the connections, and provide support. And that’s not all. Our mission is to bring door-to-door travel to everyone. We love our jobs, and we’re always seeking the best-possible experience for our customers.

Booking Backend is the customer-facing order management system of Kiwi.com. Highly available, demanding architecture for developers who can thrive working on the integration backbone. Booking Backend manages the base booking orders, as well as all additional purchases (baggage, seats, insurance, etc.) – and maintains consistency in the customer experience – be it on mobile, desktop, or using a partner application.

We understand the codebase is always changing and therefore enforce clean code, code reviews, and automated testing. As we deploy multiple times per day, QA testing, real-time monitoring, and alerting is an inevitable part of our release process. We often refactor parts of code/product that are slowing development down but also focus on being able to deliver new features – to be innovative and deliver value to our customers. Within the team, we try to spread knowledge and collaboratively work on top priorities to avoid hero syndrome – preventing bus factor.
