Tools & Systems

We use Amazon Web Services and practice continuous delivery so we can quickly try out new ideas and iterate on existing product features. We love experimenting with new technology and tools – we’ve recently started working with Elm.

We’re building our platform as a microservice architecture exposing RESTful APIs to make it easier to extend and evolve. Some are built in Java, but lately we’ve been implementing serverless microservices built in Node.js on AWS Lambda.

It’s all cloud-hosted on AWS, where we’ve been for 8+ years. We are well along the road to Continuous Delivery and infrastructure-as-code. We follow lean and agile principles to ensure a short feedback cycle, and we make sure we’re not too far removed from our internal and external customers.

Ownership & Trust

We embrace and encourage growth of engineers, supported through personal development. We empower those with drive, enthusiasm and determination, implementing ideas aligned with our mission.

We give ownership over solving problems, and encourage autonomy within teams as we find that people are their happiest and most efficient when working this way. We provide guidance and support that enables teams to find the most effective way of working for them, in a way that allows for responsible accountability that allows individuals and teams to thrive.

Mastery, Growth & Coaching

We’re keen on professional development and helping individuals grow to their full potential. We ensure people are supported at every level. We do this by having regular feedback conversations, providing mentors and coaches, and offering wide selection of learning opportunities through training courses with our external leadership coach.

Want to try something new, broaden your skill set or explore a different discipline? That’s a conversation we’re excited to have with you.

An Inclusive Environment

Click Travel highly values diversity and inclusion. We endeavour to provide a hiring and working experience in which all people feel they are equally respected and valued, regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes someone unique.

In our Product Engineering team, we’ve built a blameless culture that fosters collaboration, learning and continuous feedback.

We’re a growing, fast-paced team based in Birmingham and remotely in the UK

Our headquarters are a 10 minute walk from Birmingham New Street train station. About half of the Product Engineering team work from our HQ, the rest are remote.
