One of the core values of Booking Holdings and its brands is to deliver experiences of every kind, for everyone, making it easier for everyone to experience the world. It’s impressive to see that this value runs not only across customer-facing teams, but also on all other mission-critical functions such as security and fraud. It’s a culture of experimenting, collaborating, helping-out and not being afraid to get it wrong and do it again better. From a workplace perspective, managers factor in common sense when they take decisions and have a true sense of care-taking for their teams.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of these FAQs would answer the broad level of questions, hence go through them before applying or appearing for an interview. Feel free to ask further questions you have with the recruiters, they would be happy to answer any open queries you may have.

Our recruitment process can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks, but of course this depends on the complexity of interviews that are required for each role. For example, some of our technical roles have technical tests and coding interviews that can mean the process is slightly longer than others.

We encourage you to apply for roles that closely match your skills, knowledge and experience. In order to find a job that matches your skills, knowledge and experience, you can use our job matching functionality by uploading your CV on our website. Our job matching functionality will indicate roles that are a fit for you, even though you might not have considered some of them yourself.

While our business and the wider travel industry have been heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, as access to effective vaccinations increases around the world and restrictions to movement are relaxed, travel is beginning to recover in many parts of the world. As we look to the future, we see a lot of anticipation and excitement for people to return to travel, whether it’s domestically or abroad and our mission remains to make it easier for everyone to do just that. While we acknowledge that the pandemic isn’t over and there are still areas and virus variants of concern, we are committed to helping the industry rebuild in a more mindful and inclusive way, to support our partners to continue growing together with us and to help all of our customers book the trips and experiences that are just right for them. To that end, we have tons of great opportunities for people to join our expanding team and help us deliver on that mission.

Due to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the majority of our interviews are being conducted via Zoom video conferencing. As government advice in each country begins to allow for offices to reopen, face-to-face interviews may return however this will be at the discretion of each candidate.

The first stage after application is a phone call with our Recruiters – this will cover an overview of your career history, your knowledge, skills and experience as well as your interest in the role you’ve applied to. While there is not anything specific you can prepare, it is a great idea to have your CV to hand as well as a copy of the job posting you applied to. You can even have some examples of the knowledge, skills and experience you have gained in your career so far.

As we move into a more hybrid way of working, with our employees dividing their time between home and the workplace, we believe that our offices will continue to serve as an important place for colleagues to come together, innovate and collaborate face-to-face on a regular basis. We know from research with our employees that they still value and need time together in the office to connect and collaborate. As such, our aim is to create a flexible concept that we can continue to adapt to meet the evolving needs of our workforce.

We recommend you to discuss any questions you have about relocation in your initial conversation with the recruiter, as this is being handled on a case-by-case basis and may vary by the role you are applying for.

So whether it’s self-driven learning (with access to providers including LinkedIn Learning, Udemy and Blinkist), following a learning program designed for you and your role, or simply learning from colleagues around the world, you’ll find endless opportunities to develop at Booking Holdings Center of  Excellence.

We tend to work in smaller, agile teams. Most of our teams have 6-12 members, but may vary based on a department. For example, in our development teams, you will also collaborate with other functional teams including Product Owners, Designers and Testers.
