Where the journey began…

From humble beginnings when travelling back in 2014, our co-founders at Parkos embarked on our journey to ensure that the beginning and end of your travel experience are as enjoyable as the actual adventure between!

We make airport parking a smooth, seamless and efficient process for all travellers using our TravelTech price comparison & booking platform.

We started off by winning the major airports within the Netherlands and now operate in over 15 different countries and 3 different regions (and counting)! We’ve grown to over 120 Parkie’s and millions of travellers choose Parkos every year!

The team

Our Post-Booking team is responsible for transactional emails, ‘Manage My Booking’ pages, customer reviews, fast-checkout and expectation management. The post-booking team is fully focused on the customer journey, once the customer has placed their reservation. Your work will be tailored towards customer loyalty and happy customers (measured through NPS and other retention related metrics).

This is currently a team consisting of a dedicated Engineering Team Lead, 1 Front-End Developer (of 20+ developers in total and counting) with a dedicated QA Engineer and Product Manager.

We’ve experienced rapid growth in recent years and have introduced a microservices strategy based around Kubernetes to leave our monolith behind and to standardise our processes. On the back-end, we are enabling this by utilising Node.js, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and SQL databases.

  • Collaborate with other team members, colleagues and stakeholders delivering high-quality solutions. (20%)
  • Advocate for product quality, performance as well as recognizing impediments to our efficiency as a team (e.g technical debt, improvements in processes, quality assurance) and propose and implement improvements. (10%)
  • Maintain and migrate legacy PHP/Laravel features. (20%)
  • Provide occasional support and feedback to front-end pull requests and considerations

What you’ll bring

  • Proficiency in Node.js and TypeScript development, designing and developing APIs and microservices following best practices, SOLID principles, software design patterns and data structures.
  • Proficiency in (My)SQL data management, optimization and design.
  • Solid experience in complex concepts like authentication, authorisation, SSO, messaging, data encryption and secure coding practices.
  • Experience writing unit, integration and automation tests with testing frameworks like Jest, Cypress and other industry standard frameworks.
  • Experience in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or similar.
  • Proficient written and verbal communication skills to effectively collaborate, design technical solutions, and collaborate with cross-functional teams.

What we offer

  • Flexible working: We understand that people’s circumstances vary and allow you to decide where you work from. We can support on-site, hybrid, and fully-remote (so long as the timezones aren’t too far apart!)
  • Ownership: Take ownership of your work and have the opportunity to drive lasting change within Parkos
  • Growth: We provide the autonomy and personal development support for you to move quickly through the ranks at Parkos - the sky's the limit!
  • Transparency: We talk about our plans, allow everyone a voice, work together towards common objectives, and share our successes together as a team
  • Fast-pace: We love to experiment and try new things quickly. An error is only a mistake when you fail to correct it and we want to reach our destination as swiftly and smoothly as possible!
