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

We are a collective of forward-thinking people, driven to challenge the travel industry and ourselves to bring ever better travel experiences to our customer community.

Travel has bounced back so we are building new teams to help us deliver some very exciting products which we will tell you all about once you apply!

Our cross-functional teams include Product Managers, Designers, and Engineers focused on delivering solutions and solving problems rather than simply completing tickets.

The structure is flat and the process super-lean, focusing on a culture of MVP, iteration, and "build, measure, learn", with continuous improvement at the heart of everything we do.

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!

As a Senior Engineer here at Luxury Escapes you will be responsible for the delivery of features and enhancements relating to the Luxury Escapes platform.

We're agile, so we have daily stand ups, autonomous teams, and developers deploy to production many times every day. We have a flat, collaborative structure both within and between teams. 

We are operating a hybrid working model (collaboration is at the heart of everything we do) so you'll split your time in the office and a home. In Sydney, our offices are a short walk from Wynyard station, close to great lunch spots and cafes!

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:

  • Javascript / Node.js / Typescript
  • React (our frontend uses react and redux)
  • SQL (we use PostgreSQL)
  • RESTful API design
  • Automated testing and continuous integration
  • Experience with micro-services
  • Good communication skills, and an interest in problem solving  


  • Excellent Remuneration package
  • 20% Discount on Luxury Holidays and Experiences
  • Health and Wellbeing programs
  • A bonus day of birthday leave
  • Flexible working conditions
  • Breakfast, lunch, 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.
