We are looking for undergraduate students, who are passionate about technology and eager to learn to join our team as Software Engineers.

Our Web teams build the tools our customers need to make their trip better and at the same time get to play with the latest tech. We have an active GitHub community with over 150 users and 450 projects spanning a range of technologies such as Node, Express, React, Backbone and other JavaScript single page applications. If you want to find out more why not take a look at our team blog – tech.holidayextras.com.

We are a growing team with 60+ engineers, many of whom are previous placement students, all willing to support you through your placement year. We really value personal development and dedicate every other Friday to it. You can choose to work with different people, experimenting to create solutions to various challenges!

On your 12 month placement with us you will be part of an Agile delivery team with the opportunity to learn and code on a number of different platforms and frameworks. There’s no typical day for an Engineer in our team. We have multiple codebases that you will work with during your time and each day provides a new challenge, implementing new features or fixing issues to improve the effectiveness of our website. Rest assured though that help will always be on hand and the knowledge and experience of the rest of the team is readily available to help you achieve your goals and have a great year in industry.

If this sounds like a fantastic opportunity to kick start your web career, please send in your CV and cover letter, outlining what makes you a great fit for the role, what you want to gain from the year and any projects you've got going on the side.

Applications need to be in by Sunday 14th January 2018. With successful candidates being invited to assessment days in February 2018.

If you are an International Student, we must have evidence of your Right to Work in the UK at the time of application. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
