Here at Luxury Escapes, our mission is to delight our customers with incredible deals for the world's best holidays.

As customers return to travel with new habits, the industry is re-shaping itself, and a lot of business will move online. We want to take advantage of that shift, so we've been busy building new teams to help us deliver some very exciting projects, which we will tell you all about once you apply!

This particular role is for our Engineering Excellency team. Perhaps you've got DevOps or security experience, or perhaps you're a backend developer who loves promoting best practices and fantastic developer experiences - we want to hear from you!

Our team share in-depth experience from the worlds of Node, Typescript, React, PostgreSQL, AWS Lambda, and more. We love learning and hold regular "tech forums" to learn from peers or discuss the tech issues of the day. We also have some really great developers, so you'll be both well supported and challenged!

We're "little a" agile, so we work in 2 week sprints, have daily stand ups, and developers deploy to production many times every day. We're low bureaucracy. Tuesday and Thursday are meeting-free days, and we have a flat, collaborative structure both within and between teams. We do everything we can to promote autonomy.

Conveniently located in Southbank, Melbourne we are a short walk from public transport close to great lunch spots, cafes and the South Melbourne Market.

Employee experience is king here, with weekly events, monthly recognition programs and significant professional development opportunities. (We have won awards for it – but the HR team don’t like to brag much!)

Relevant skills:

  • Dev Ops experience
  • Understanding of security
  • Node.js or Typescript experience
  • SQL (we use PostgreSQL)
  • Automated testing and continuous integration
  • Experience with micro-services
  • Good communication skills


  • Excellent Remuneration package
  • 20% Discount on Luxury Holidays and Experiences
  • Health and Wellbeing programs
  • A bonus day of birthday leave
  • Flexible working conditions
  • Breakfast, coffee and fruit provided
  • A super collaborative team that enjoys creating great platforms

If this role sounds appealing but you don't check every box, apply anyway, we want to hear what you can do!

We are a 2022 Circle Back Initiative Employer – we commit to respond to every applicant.
