Have you ever wondered how a mission critical system that is used by more than 125 airlines to check in 800 million passengers each year is made ultra-resilient to failures? And are you ready to work for a technology company that was voted Red Hat innovator of the year in 2016 and in 2014, 2015 and 2016 was the leading European investor in R&D for the travel and tourism sector? We have the job for you!
We are looking for an enthusiastic C++ Software Engineer to work on our world leading airline passenger servicing system based at our London Heathrow development centre.
