Rocket Travel, Inc., a subsidiary of Booking Holdings, is looking for a Senior Software Engineer - Backend with experience with JVM languages like Java, Groovy, and Kotlin to join our engineering team.
The Rocket Travel team is based in Chicago's West Loop, which is currently fully remote. Remote employment is an option for this role, but once it's safe to travel and our office reopens, periodic trips to Chicago will be encouraged.
You will be involved in all facets of the software development process, from inception to deployment. You should enjoy building new products, playing with APIs and data, and discovering and exploring new technologies and ideas.
At Rocket, we encourage experimentation, so we're not a one language/one framework shop. We hire people who know how to pick the right tool for the job and learn along the way. We regularly use domain specific languages like Groovy and Kotlin in our daily work.
You will be helping our team pursue challenges including:
Rocket Travel creates B2C and B2B2C travel solutions, and is part of the Booking Holdings ( BKNG ). We have many worldwide partners and a diversified business. Despite the world's current situation, Booking Holdings has been rated the healthiest company in travel, and we're using 2020 to prepare for the future. We're solidifying our tech stack, our business capabilities, and our partnerships so that we'll be ready to meet the world's pent-up demand for travel when the time comes. We'd love for you to join us and help the world travel again!
Candidates should be authorized to accept employment in the US from any employer, should be willing to start within three weeks of accepting an offer, and should be able to work the same daily working hours as our Chicago office.
At Rocket Travel, we're building a diverse team that values accountability, curiosity, and community. If you share these values and are interested in joining us, we'd love to talk with you even if you don't meet 100% of the requirements listed here. We don't expect anyone to have all the answers, as long as they're willing to learn and grow with us.
