Luxury Escapes is one of the world’s fastest-growing travel websites, with over 6 million members. We are growing rapidly & seeking a Senior Software Engineer to join our Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO) team.

Are you a data-driven and product-minded engineer? These are some of the challenges you'll help solve:

  • Architecting NodeJS backend services to communicate with each other efficiently and reliably.
  • Implementing features with beautiful new designs on our React customer-facing website.
  • Refactoring our React frontend to best follow industry best practices and simplify code.

Working at Luxury Escapes

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 outstanding travel experiences to our customer community.

Luxury Escapes is an in-person company, with 4 days in the office, and 1-day WFH.

About the team

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 is lean, with a culture of MVP, iteration, and "build, measure, learn" at the heart of everything we do. We share in-depth experience in Node/ Typescript, React, PostgreSQL, AWS SQS, SNS, S3 Lambda, and more.

Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO) is one of the few lucky teams that sit horizontally across all products at Luxury Escapes! Our main priorities are to improve the customer experience and drive conversions. This involves working across all verticals (hotels, flights, experiences etc) and with all our teams to get their features delivered to the customers in the best possible way.

Some recent projects:

  • Creating the new face of LE with our brand-new homepage, showcasing the different travel deals we offer.
  • Optimising the purchase flow, making it both simpler and modern in design.
  • AB testing with Optimizely and front-end analytics practices to increase conversion.

What you'll do

  • Deliver features and enhancements relating to the new Luxury Escapes Platform, to ensure all Luxury Escapes members, vendors and internal teams have the best customer journey experience.
  • Work collaboratively with cross-functional teams to design and develop software solutions that meet business needs and deliver value to customers.
  • Apply best practices and industry standards for software development, such as agile methodologies, test-driven development, and continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD).
  • Implement and maintain APIs to enable integration with third-party services, such as airlines, hotels, car rental companies, and payment processors.
  • Monitor system performance and reliability, and proactively identify and resolve issues to ensure maximum uptime and customer satisfaction.
  • Stay up to date with the latest technologies and trends in the online travel industry and evaluate their potential to improve existing systems or enable new capabilities.
  • Provide technical leadership and mentorship to junior software engineers and participate in code reviews & other quality assurance activities to ensure high-quality software delivery.

Relevant Skills:

  • Proficiency in JavaScript and its frameworks, including React, Node.js and Typescript.
  • Solid knowledge of SQL, specifically PostgreSQL, for database management.
  • Familiarity with RESTful API design principles and implementation.
  • Experience in automated testing and continuous integration processes.
  • Knowledge and experience working with microservices architecture.
