jobs description

Our mission at Booking.com is to create transformative, innovative, and personalized travel experiences for millions of customers all across the world. We want customers to have an amazing experience wherever and whenever they choose: mobile, web, and through partners and 3rd parties.

To support the business with a modern and optimized production infrastructure, we are building and continuously operating an ecosystem of connected cloud capabilities, and are on a multi-year journey to migrate all of Booking's workloads to the cloud.

As part of this connected cloud ecosystem, the Booking Private Cloud provides a set of centrally managed enterprise-ready cloud capabilities for running virtualized, containerized and serverless workloads in an agile cost efficient manner. The Private Cloud is powered by technologies from the Kubernetes and OpenStack ecosystems.
