  • Experience calling both JSON/REST and XML/SOAP APIs

  • A love for systems and an ability to think through and plan for their life cycles, edge cases, interactions, and failure modes
  • An ability to balance speed of iteration and quality of code: we need to build fast without compromising reliability and usability
  • Excellent communication skills and an ability to convert business requirements to code and explain complex concepts to the business

What would be great (but isn’t required)

  • Experience with travel and hospitality systems and/or Postgres / GIS
  • Experience of front-end development and/or DevOps and agile processes

We offer
