Kiwi.com is an online travel agency that developed its own algorithm for finding flight tickets. Our mission is to move people from any A to any B affordably and conveniently. We’re doing it by creating virtual interlining; by combining flights, trains, buses, ride-hailing services, and even city micro-mobility in our search.  Our company is still a young scale-up, founded in 2012 in Brno, Czech Republic. The idea came from our CEO Oliver who realized how complicated it could sometimes be to find suitable flight connections. He wanted to make travel better and easier, he had the vision of how to do it, and he started building the team. At the time, the company had only two employees, and today Kiwi.com has its offices in Brno and Prague (the Czech Republic), Bratislava (Slovakia), and Barcelona (Spain). Forbes awarded us as the most successful Czech startup, and throughout all these years, we reached the point of having more than two thousand employees spread all over the world!  How is it to be a part of Kiwi.com? Our core Engineering team has almost 500 people employed worldwide and spread in various teams: Search, Backend, Frontend, Fintech, Booking, MMB, etc. We count 178TB of incoming data every day, 1 billion database updates per hour, and 2,5 billion raw flights combined every two hours.  Our company supports workplace freedom and friendly working relationships with people in the office and also encourages flexible time schedules and home offices. We give them the freedom to try new things, too, and the freedom to unleash ambitions (our engineers excel at worldwide conferences). Are you afraid of making mistakes? We aren’t! We like to say: fail, learn, repeat. All the work we do is meaningful work where we all learn and challenge ourselves. Our offices are well-organized chaos of people (and dogs) of various origins, with crazy hobbies, lifestyles, and life approach.
