  • Curiosity coupled with an eagerness to embrace untested methods in order to achieve greater success rather than relying on the status quo.
  • The willingness to challenge solutions that are "good enough" by always striving for the best possible solutions.
  • Fluency in English (our company language).

What we'd love you to have:

  • Knowledge of MySQL.
  • Expertise in the online travel agency field.
