As a Software Engineer, you’ll work on cutting-edge technologies to design, scale, and maintain backend architectures. Backend is a core part of the TUI Musement’s business, it is used in internal projects as well as external-facing ones. Our main application is based on Symfony4 but on top of that, we have different API gateways written in PHP, NodeJS, and Go. All our applications use MySQL as the primary data store but we also rely on Elasticsearch and Redis. TUI Musement’s backend architecture embraces the “backend for frontend” pattern. This approach allows us to easily connect our backend to a bunch of different client applications: SPA, mobile app, or other backend systems. 


There are many ways for you to get involved: 


  • You will be a key part of a team that owns all phases of the product development life cycle, from conception to delivery to customers
  • You will be required to collaborate with system architects and product managers to deliver high-quality technical solutions     
  • You’ll work on cutting edge technologies as well as mature technologies to design, scale, and maintain our backend architecture   
  • You’ll develop high-quality backend code with a strong focus on automated testing
  • You’ll participate to code reviews to guarantee high software quality standards and consistency across the codebase
  • You’ll participate actively to our SCRUM ceremonies to plan sprints, estimate tasks, and continuously improve our methodology


There is more than one way to the perfect fit – here are some of the ideal things: 


  • Strong knowledge of PHP to build, deliver and maintain high-quality enterprise systems      
  • Experience with REST API design, implementation, and maintenance (Open API)      
  • Product engineer mindset: good understanding of the entire product development process (design, development, and deployment)      
  • Passion for software development and the ability to communicate and collaborate at all levels of the organization      
  • Agile methodologies knowledge      
  • Deep focus on automated tests (unit, functional, integration)      
  • Familiarity with CI/CD development process      
  • Familiarity working with AWS cloud solutions (RDS, S3, SNS, etc)      
  • Bachelor’s or master’s degree in Computer Science/Engineering or equivalent      
  • Experience with Elasticsearch, Go, Redis, Serverless tools, and Docker-based environments is of advantage 



  • Being a valuable team member of TUI, the No.1 global and socially aware travel company
  • Competitive salary and benefits 
  • TUI Musement operate in over 115 destinations offering more career opportunities than any other travel company
  • Develop yourself by working as part of an international team and through our free global learning and development programme including free language lessons and various Management Development Programmes
