Have you ever wondered how your bags get from the check-in desk to the plane? Well, it is complicated and the system that sits behind it is very complex. It is distributed, real-time, and written in over 180,000 lines of C++ code!
BRS (Baggage Reconciliation System) interacts with both the check in system, and the weight and balance system, not only to make sure that a passenger won’t travel without his bag, and also to share data to all the relevant systems at the airport.
We have a C++ back end, several scanners working on windows mobile and Android, and a supervisor interface done in AngularJS.
If this sounds like a project you would enjoy working on, then you would work with some excellent colleagues who are responsible for all elements of the software, from front-end to back-end.
The team is composed of 14 people, it’s a mix of Business Analysts, developers, and Quality Analysts. The team also works closely with counterparts in Bangalore and Sydney.
