Founded in 2011, Stratajet has since grown to a company of 40 employees headquartered in London.

We are on the lookout for a talented Technical Lead to join our vibrant, dynamic and collaborative team based in our amazing offices in Farringdon, London. You will be responsible for defining the architectural direction of consumer facing apps within the business, for leading, inspiring and evolving the team; ensuring the quality of code delivered is to an exceptional standard.

You’ll be working on…

Engineering Culture

We are a close-knit bunch of technologists who are passionate about changing the way people fly. Working in the aviation industry poses some unique challenges beyond typical web development and we pride ourselves in using the appropriate technology for the job, leading to a tech stack that includes Ruby on Rails, Swift, Angular, .NET, Go and AWS, with a continuous deployment infrastructure and a focus on automated testing. We’re excited about testing Clojure and/or Elixir in the coming months for new microservices.

Our diverse and international team allows us to bring different perspectives to the technical and business problems we face, enabling us to constantly improve our platform and product offering.

But… we also know how to blow off steam with regular socials, ping-pong tournaments, game nights and an inquisitive desire to find the Ballmer Peak!

What’s in it for you…

  • Stratajet is disrupting an entire industry's business model, and you’ll be part of defining the future of the platform. You will be in a position to drive change and have a substantial impact.

At Stratajet we’re committed to creating a working environment where anyone and everyone can succeed. We believe in the continuous growth of our employees and provide the necessary support to ensure each person is able to do their job to the best of their abilities.
