What Opentable is looking for in applicants

About us

With millions of diners, tens of thousands of restaurants, and 23+ years of experience, OpenTable, part of Booking Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKNG), is an industry leader with a unique insight into the world of hospitality. We champion restaurants, bars, wineries, and other venues around the world, helping them attract guests, manage capacity, improve operations and maximize revenue.

Every employee at OpenTable has a tangible impact on what we do and how we do it. You’ll also join a global network that includes OpenTable and KAYAK's portfolio of travel brands including Swoodoo, checkfelix, momondo, Cheapflights, Mundi and HotelsCombined.

Hospitality is all about taking care of others, and it defines our culture. You’ll work in a welcoming and inclusive environment, and get the benefits, flexibility, and support you need to succeed.

About the role

The Restaurant Engineering team is responsible for serving the needs of OpenTable's restaurant customers by providing groundbreaking software tools that enable restaurant staff, general managers, and owners to optimally and efficiently manage their business. 

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer who is passionate about software development and solving tough problems. The role is a rough 80/20 split between front end and back end.

You will work closely with a dedicated team of product and design partners and take an iterative approach to feature development, small slicing, and incremental delivery. You will help us improve our processes and platform to best suit the constantly evolving needs of our customers and the restaurant industry as a whole.

About you

Ideally, you will have:

  • Experience with JavaScript, TypeScript and React/Redux
  • A high familiarity with Node.js and a server framework like Express
  • Knowledge of async design patterns, data structures, and OO design
  • A solid understanding of modern CSS and HTML5
  • A passion for developing quality software backed by unit tests
  • High emotional intelligence, with strong communication and collaboration skills
  • A thirst for learning and embarking on new challenges

To truly blow us away you might also have:

  • Angular (so we can retire some loose ends)
  • Web-sockets and push technologies
  • Docker and Kubernetes
  • Java and/or C#

Our benefits

  • Work from (almost) anywhere; wherever you do your best work
  • Mental health focus: 6 company-paid therapy sessions, subscription to a meditation app, wellbeing speaker series and resources
  • Annual health and wellness reimbursement
  • 1 floating day off per year to celebrate your birthday or another occasion of your choice
  • Company-wide weeks off each year: the whole team recharges (and returns without a pile-up of work!)
  • Paid volunteer time
  • Monthly catered office events
  • Learning and development opportunities
  • Universal paid parental leave

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

OpenTable aspires to be a workplace that reflects the diverse communities we serve and a culture that is inclusive and welcoming. Hiring people with different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and ideas is critical to innovation and to how we deliver great experiences for our users and our partners. Representation matters.
