Senior Fullstack Engineer, Travel Authenticated Experiences Senior Frontend Engineer, TPG Site Senior Frontend Engineer, Travel Authenticated Experiences Frontend Engineer, Travel Authenticated Experiences Frontend Engineer, TPG Site Backend Engineer, Travel APIs team Senior Android Engineer, Travel Mobile Apps Performance Analyst, Travel Mobile Apps Customer Experience and Email Analyst, TPG Site About the teams: Travel APIs is our core backend engineering team, responsible for developing capabilities that make the award travel ecosystem computable, thereby enabling our users to travel smarter. In practice, this means wrapping expertly crafted code around flight schedules, booking and routing rules, loyalty programs, credit card features, and partner API integrations. We build for security, reliability, fault-tolerance, and performance. It's a polyglot team that chooses the right tool for the job, working in java, node.js, and golang. Creating these products involves a lot of data, and while this isn't a "big data" or data engineering job, it's certainly medium-size data. Strong relational database skills are a must, and the ability to explore different datasets and relate them together will serve the team well. If you're not very familiar with AWS, that's OK... but you will become quite familiar with it. Travel Mobile Apps exists to build mobile apps that delight our end users and make them smarter travelers. The mobile team works closely with the Travel APIs team to implement our capabilities in beautiful, useful mobile apps. The forthcoming TPG mobile app will launch this summer for iOS. Up to this point, we have been iterating and testing with users on a single platform in order to speed up development. Now, we're looking for an experienced software architect who can introduce us to the Android ecosystem and help us reach a wider market. Travel AuthX is our web applications team, dedicated to front end consumer-facing experiences. The TPG web application is still in its planning phases, but this team is also responsible for launching the new website for our sister brand, ExpertFlyer, which is already in beta and nearing production-readiness. AuthX partners closely with the Travel API's team, but it takes an expansive view of "front end," with some backend APIs under its ownership in order to allow the team to iterate and test consumer features quickly and autonomously. Our tech stack is React/Redux, Node.js, Golang, and Aurora RDS. This is a newly formed team built around a collection of hand-picked leaders from our organization, and we intend to move quickly on some big goals as the travel industry comes back to life. - Mitchell Stoutin, Sr Director of Engineering, TPG & EF
