Engineering at Travel and Transport
Engineering team and processes

We follow a lightweight Agile process, and enjoy side-by-side design and coding sessions to solve problems. We seek to minimize meetings and be available for each other throughout the day. We're a fairly flat organization with leadership roles assigned by expertise, and teams that form and disband based on the project requirements. We're organized underneath the Chief Innovation Officer. Flexible work schedules and locations are part of our travel culture.

Technical Challenges

As a global platform, we leverage instantly scaling, stateless processes to adapt to highly dynamic loads. Real-time data streams are driven by bookings (hotels, planes, cars, trains) sourced from multiple Global Distribution Systems and Online Booking Tools.

Large travel-related data sets drive inquires around risk mitigation, privacy, spend optimization, data custody, and true preferences; such data must be actionable with minimal delay. Push messages, deep logging and analysis, and event queues play an important role in our decoupled designs.

Our solution's ability to respond to real-time threats from natural and man-made disasters are continuously tested. We are constantly challenged to embrace continuous failure as a design feature.

The GraphQL interface backed by a microservice architecture has offered innovative and easy ways to consume the event stream. We're always looking for what comes next.

Projects you might work on
  • Real-time, event-driven data synchronization between multiple parties where data ownership is banded and global.

  • Multi-region deployment of AWS services based on configurable customer preferences.

  • Behavior analysis based on past travel patterns to categorize travel classifications and present insight into future travel policy needs.

  • Express interface for mapping data between internal and external targets.

  • Using Amazon Elastic Search provide a real-time view of impacted itineraries filtered by various profile elements.
