We are home to over 500 tech specialists from all corners of the globe, who wake up every day to build a hotel search that is straightforward, simple-to-use and unbiased. Our engineers operate on a large-scale, complex, and rapidly evolving IT landscape.
Tech at trivago
Scalability, speed and efficiency are three key factors that influence our Software Engineering at trivago. Each engineer has their own area of focus which can involve developing high traffic web applications, setting up high performing database queries or writing and optimising code for various browsers and connection speeds.
Our engineers love the challenges that their work presents to them on a daily basis and thrive in our agile environment where they can share their knowledge and work together to solve any problems that arise.
We love to experiment with new technologies and we use the best in production for our large-scale system. From Kubernetes, Kafka, Go, and Kotlin in the backend over Redux, Melody, and GraphQL in the frontend we use a wide variety of Open Source tools to maintain our multi-cloud platform.
We strongly believe in sharing knowledge not only internally, but also with the tech community around the world. This is one of the reasons why we support Open Source software through development. Sometimes we also make use of existing open source projects, as they make our lives way easier!
Want to get a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges our software engineers and data scientists work on everyday? Our tech blog is the ideal place to talk about our ideas, our prototypes and our tech stack that turn our vision into reality!
