Who are we and what do we do?

Labs @ EF Tours is the group of technology and creative professionals empowering EF to send groups of students and educators on guided educational tours across the world. We power every step of our customer’s journey with us, from browsing our many tour offerings and enrolling on the web, through collecting feedback after the tour. Over the course of your career with us, you’ll have the opportunity to try your hand at everything from designing beautiful customer front end interactions, to solving large scale resource allocation problems, and everything in between.


What specifically will you be doing?

You will be leading a small team of software developers as they create and expand on technology driving a slice of our business. You will collaborate with a cross-functional team of designers, UX researchers, product owners, and business stakeholders to design and build systems that enhance our customer’s experience with us as they prepare for their tours.

  • Experience leading software development projects
  • Experience with a large part of the Microsoft .Net framework, and related technologies
  • Enthusiasm for learning, and following, best practices


What else would we really like to see?

We solve a lot of different kinds of problems for our customers, and we rely on a lot of different technologies to get the best answer. We’d love to have you on the team if you also have:

  • Experience with RESTful web services
  • Recent experience with modern front-end web technologies, such as React, npm, and webpack
  • Experience with relational and/or NoSQL databases
