Job description

Join us and shape the future of travel

Shaping the future of travel has always been important to us at Amadeus. Today, with technology getting smarter by the minute, that future is more exciting than ever.

We work at the heart of the global travel industry. Amadeus offers you the opportunity to learn and grow and drive your own progression in an exciting and multicultural environment.

Our people are driven by a passion for 'Where next?' If you want to shape your career and the future of travel, Amadeus is the place for you.

Background

The Ground Transportation development team in Amadeus is shared across 4 worldwide rail development departments (Sophia-Antipolis in France, Sydney in Australia, Bangalore in India and Bad-Homburg in Germany). These teams are in charge of both distribution and IT projects for the ground transportation industry (rail, subways, buses and coaches).

There are opportunities and challenges in the coming years, in which Amadeus aims at increasing the number of providers distributed as well as proposing new functionalities and products based on cutting-edge technologies.

You will be integrated in a very international team of about 40 people managing core functionalities of the Amadeus Ground Transportation Platform.

Main responisbilities

The blockchain is the technology behind the bitcoin protocol. It allows storing in a trusted and distributed way all transactions that occurred on the bitcoin network.

This technology could be used to store any type of transactions, in particular travel reservations. It offers the following advantages: with the blockchain, the data is replicated over all nodes of the network, avoiding central point of failures that we may have with a centralized architecture. It is also much cheaper than a traditional system.

In order to exploit the potential of this new technology, the Rail & Ground Transportation division is interested in developing a community-based blockchain infrastructure that can make it easy to integrate specific system capabilities with partners.

The trainee will participate in following activities:

· Understand the as-is reservation platform, its modules and features
· Study the blockchain protocol and see how it could be integrated within a reservation system
· Taking over from our vision on future-evolutions to identify possible opportunities for integration of this technology
· Develop a prototype of a travel reservation system based on the blockchain
· Provide recommendations on the future use of the blockchain within a travel reservation platform
