We’re committed to uncovering outrageous deals on flights, removing the barriers to travel and unlocking ways to make our members’ travel goals happen, reaching places they never thought possible, going on more vacations, taking more adventures or visiting friends and family across the globe.

We are looking for a Full Stack Software Engineer to join our development team. We need a commercially experienced software developer who can contribute to making our services, platform and mobile applications better for our 1,000,000+ members and internal users.

This role will focus on expanding and supporting our flight finding technologies, known internally as Dealbot. It runs 24/7 looking for the best deals, and interacts directly with our flight finding team.

Our in-house technology stack is a combination of Python and Javascript services. Our services are cloud based being served from a variety of cloud providers, including AWS and GCP. Our platform architecture and services are distributed across:

  1. Python, Node.js - Backend services and tools.
  2. MongoDB, Redis and Postgres - Databases and caching.
  3. Angular, React - Web applications.
  4. React-Native -  Mobile apps on iOS and Android.

We also work with a range of third party service providers to provide tools and services via APIs and automations. 

As well as working on Dealbot you can also expect to work on projects covering any aspect of our systems, so be open to learn and share your knowledge! You’ll be contributing quickly and significantly to our development sprints, delivering new features and resolving issues across the platform as needed. 

You’ll also participate in architecture, design and estimation sessions, brainstorming solutions and approaches to business problems.

Purpose

The purpose of this role is to provide high quality technology solutions efficiently, that make a real difference to us and our members. 

Responsibilities

In this role you will be responsible for:

  1. Developing and maintaining our automation & flight finding technologies (Dealbot).
  2. Generating and deploying professional quality, commercial code that is efficient and effective and solves business problems.
  3. Actively contributing towards improving our tools, process and platform.
  4. Supporting other engineering team members, responding to and asking for help.
  5. Seeking out and creating clarity in technical design. 

About you

We’d like you to be a solution oriented developer who enjoys problem-solving and being an active contributor to challenge thinking and approaches. 

You’ll be joining a small team working fully remotely, so you’ll need to be comfortable working independently, able to self-organise and be disciplined in your working practices. 

Working remotely has unique challenges, so you’ll need to be committed to great communication and open to making suggestions for changes and improvements that make you and the team better every day. 

Experience and Requirements

You must have at least 2 years of commercial experience as a developer and be able to demonstrate professional competence with:

  • Deep understanding of Python and its ecosystem.

  • API testing
  • One or more database technologies - SQL or NoSQL
  • Containerisation with Docker
  • Experience with container orchestration

Although we have team members all over the world, English is the company’s first language, so you must have good conversational and technical spoken and written English language skills.

We’d like it if you also have some of the following: 

  • Can show you have a passion for code and technology e.g. contributing to open source projects.
  • A willingness to learn new things and implement the latest technologies.

Data & Business Analyst - Remote (UK/EU hours)

About the role

Jack’s Flight Club is a fully remote business with team members all over the world. We’re committed to uncovering outrageous deals on flights, removing the barriers to travel and unlocking ways to make our members’ travel goals happen.

We are looking for a Data & Business Analyst with strong data skills to join the team to provide rigorous analysis, lateral thinking and data wrangling to support business strategy, product development, problem solving and evaluating projects for our teams.

You’ll be expected to use highly developed analytical, logic and problem solving skills, combined with great attention to detail and “jack of all trades” knowledge to go down the rabbit hole, wrestle signal from noise, then articulate and visualise insightful analysis and recommendations to improve our systems and processes.

You’ll be working with all the teams in the business to investigate, identify, analyse and visualise business problems and opportunities. In an average week you might be; working on a data migration project to efficiently map data between internal and external databases, deep diving data from multiple business systems to root out holes in processes causing discrepancies in reconciliation, developing flow charts and system diagrams to illustrate a complex business process, designing the framework and data principles for running A/B conversion experiments at scale, helping a non-technical person figure out how to get the answers they need by combining reporting and queries across our different systems.

Over time you’ll develop deep understanding and knowledge of our data structures, operations, processes, platforms and third party tools and be a go-to resource for how they all fit together and can be used in combination to deliver business insight.

Purpose

The purpose of this role is to help the business make informed decisions faster.

Responsibilities

In this role you will be responsible for:

  1. Providing support to all the teams in the business in data and process design, investigations and research, providing evidence to help make decisions.
  2. Joining the dots across the business, sharing best practices and your experience in structured thinking, analysis and data hygiene to help us learn and grow.

About you

We’d like you to be a business analyst or data analyst who enjoys playing with data, slicing and dicing, charting and pivoting to research, identify and illuminate issues. You should enjoy investigating datasets to identify anomalies and overlaps, have an instinct for spotting patterns and get all twitchy when things don’t add up or stick out. 

You should enjoy structure, frameworks and good data hygiene and have a compulsion to make the messy, neat. If it’s clunky, it should offend you. You should have a curious mind and enjoy rolling up your sleeves to DIY where you can and challenging beyond the first easy answer to reframe and find the best answer where you can’t. You probably enjoy jigsaws.

You’ll be joining a small team working fully remotely so you’ll need to be comfortable working independently, able to self-organise multiple streams of work in parallel and be disciplined in your thinking, planning and working practices. 

It can be hard to work remotely, so you’ll need to be committed to great communication, willing to suggest and make improvements that make you and the team better every day. 

This role may suit someone with a few years experience looking for full time or a more experienced analyst looking for part time (3-4 days per week).

Experience and Requirements

You must have at least 2 years of commercial experience as a business analyst or data analyst working in a digital environment. You should be able to demonstrate professional competence and experience with:

  • Advanced spreadsheet analysis and data handling in Google Sheets or Excel (pivots hold no fears and you know the pros & cons of vlookup vs index/match vs dcount)
  • Preparing decks or research papers that communicate complex ideas with clarity
  • Visualising data and processes using flowcharts or charting tools

Although we have team members all over the world, English is the company’s first language, so you must have fluent spoken and written English language skills.

We’d like it if you also have some of the following: 

  • Familiarity with Google Analytics, Email broadcasting or BI tools 
  • Knowledge of SQL, Excel macros or custom functions in Google Sheets using Javascript
  • Enough tech knowledge to confidently discuss engineering principles and systems (or perhaps mock them up)
  • An interest and joy in travel experiences

To apply for this role, submit your details in this application form. No questions asking you to repeat stuff in your CV, promise :-)

You prefer an open and honest work environment
You thrive on great communication and self-directed tasks
You realise the value of travel and holidays and want to make sure others get to have more
