Together we're on a mission to power every property in the world, and to do that, we need to find the best talent in the world. That's why we're on the search for a superstar Senior Backend Engineer.

As a Backend Engineer, you will implement new architectures, features, and best practices to scale the Cloudbeds platform. You will contribute to new efforts in service-oriented architectures, leveraging the latest, cutting-edge technologies. As a Senior Backend Engineer, your goal is to deliver an exceptional experience to our customers worldwide with quality, performance, and scalability top of mind. Alongside your team, you will leverage the latest, modern SaaS and Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies across all software stack layers.

This role will be a member of the Inventory squad. Driving direct bookings has always been important for our customers, as direct bookings have a lower customer acquisition cost than third-party bookings. They put the property in control and provide the property more ability to interact with their guests (i.e., sending pre-arrival forms and upsells). 

Across the entire hotel industry, direct bookings account for roughly 30% of the booking volume. The same is true for Cloudbeds properties. And while some properties drive a very low volume of direct bookings, others invest heavily into marketing campaigns and guest loyalty and drive upwards of 90% of the entire booking volume as direct bookings. In general, there has been a recent trend where properties, particularly major brands, focus increasingly on driving direct bookings.
