It wasn’t so long ago that booking a trip so see the Eiffel Tower, stroll down New York’s iconic Madison Avenue or feel the sand between our toes on Copacabana Beach was simply a matter of a few taps on our smartphone.
In fact, that’s what we do at Booking.com. We make it easier for everyone to experience the world. And while that world might feel a little farther away right now, we’re busy preparing for when the world is ready to travel once more.
Across our offices worldwide, we continue to innovate. To solve for some of the most complex challenges in travel and technology, and to plan for the exciting developments that lie ahead.
With strategic long-term investments into what we believe the future of travel can be, we are opening up new career opportunities that will have a strong impact on our mission.
We are united in the belief that our very human desire to explore the planet’s beauty and discover more about other people and cultures will endure.
The world is waiting for us. Together, we will be ready.
In Application Data Services we are operating a fleet of thousands of database instances in hundreds of replication hierarchies, some with hundreds of members, some with sizes up to hundred Terabytes, and some with a transaction rate that pushes the boundaries of what the hardware can do.
We are also taking care of developer needs, providing services to automate grant management, data ownership, online schema management, and monitoring and alerting.
We are using Python and Go, CI / CD in gitlab, Puppet, and some bits and pieces in other languages and systems.
Of course, this is only possible because the provisioning, maintenance and operations of these servers is automated. And maintaining, improving and refactoring this automation is what the SRE job is about : We code our way out of problems where operations are concerned, addressing availability, scalability, latency, and efficiency challenges within the vast infrastructure here at Booking.
Our automation is written in Python and Go, and is interfacing with a number of systems, among them our Puppetry, Openstack, Kubernetes, PowerDNS, Graphite, Prometheus, Zookeeper, and many more.
As a Senior Developer in the data infrastructure team, you will be responsible for planning, building, improving and refactoring solutions that solve these problems.
You will also share the on-call rotation and be an escalation contact for incidents. You will be working in close collaboration with multi-functional teams in Core Infrastructure and in the Application Teams.
Booking.com is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, colour, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
We strive to move well beyond traditional equal opportunity and work to create an environment that allows everyone to thrive.
