Since team leads in IT spend a large part of their time hands-on, it’s important that they get to know our development methodology and technical stack really well.
All team leads therefore start as a developer in one of our teams. After you finished training and depending on your readiness, we’ll look for a team for you to lead.
We primarily use Perl for development. It’s ok if you haven’t used Perl before as long as you are willing to learn it. We use MySQL with Memcache and Redis where necessary.
We use Git for source control and our deployments are also closely tied to it.At Booking.com we work in small (4-5 people) agile teams.
Each team owns a part of our product and works on it independently.
