We're a multi award-winning team expanding the online bookable campsite and holiday park market where only 30% are bookable online. And we want another expert to join us.
We're looking for an ambitious and talented Python developer to join our small team of developers managing double-digit annual growth and tackling tough online booking, search and geo challenges. We're all about collaboration - you'll take part in regular brainstorms as the company grows rapidly, and gain direct experience of the rapid evolution of a high-profile growth company, working alongside experts in an apolitical, friendly environment.
Pitchup.com is the market-leading online booking site for campsites and caravan parks, with over 3,500 sites available in 65 countries, including the USA, and plans for further global expansion.
More Brits go camping and caravanning than holiday in Spain and Greece combined, and the market is booming as Brits switch to domestic holidays. Now, we're expanding into Europe and further afield.
A member of the FT1000 2018 and Deloitte Technology 'Fast 50', Pitchup.com receives up to 155,000 visits and 4,000 bookings per day. The company is profitable and was founded in 2009 by former lastminute.com staff with a background in the holiday park sector.
Cool stuff we've done recently include developing our award-winning mobile site and advanced compare tool. Behind the scenes we've built some pretty nice features to help campsite owners manage their vacancies and encourage them to sign up.
We're based at The Light Box off the Chiswick High Road (nearest tube/train Gunnersbury, Kew Bridge) and are a lively friendly team with bags of experience. We want someone similar to join us - is that you?The project
Over 60 campsite booking systems (https://www.pitchup.com/integration) are currently integrated with Pitchup's API, enabling campsites to retrieve bookings and submit prices/vacancy levels automatically.
We have identified a further three booking systems of strategic importance to our future growth in Europe and the US.
The project, which we anticipate will take around three months, has two aims:
integrate with these booking systems improve our integration experience for future external developers, by dogfooding our API
