Data Engineer

HotelTonight makes it remarkably easy to book great hotels at amazing last-minute rates on your mobile device, for tonight, tomorrow and next week. Our mission is to make people feel more alive by delivering the unexpected and we're looking for a Data Engineer to help do just that.

As a mobile-only company, HotelTonight is at the cutting edge of technology. We’re handling thousands of hotels constantly updating their rates, while customers are on the lookout for the best deals. Both supply and demand are frequently changing and influencing each other in near real-time, which presents exciting challenges and opportunities to our Data Engineering team.

When you join HotelTonight, you will be responsible for ensuring smooth operations of our data pipeline, supporting the company in business insights and analysis, and incorporating intelligence into our customer- and hotel-facing products. One impactful project you’ll jump right into is building the next iteration of intelligent virtual assistants that recommend best strategies to hotel partners to drive their goals.
