Job Description

Job Title

Senior Software Development Engineer (C++)

Business Environment

Reservation is the beating heart of many Amadeus products: it handles critical steps of a trip reservation, including booking, ticketing, PNR management, etc.
Our organization (CPS-RES) drives these reservation functions for different travel content types, such as air, land and sea. We are accountable for our unique reservation platform, used both by Airlines and Distribution actors.
With the travel industry rapidly changing, the RES organization is involved in key on-going and new projects at the crossroad of all the business units.

We are also working on technical challenges, on our platform’s modernization (e.g. peaking our applications, migrating to the cloud).

The VAS team (Validation & Storage) is responsible for the PNR databases, and the core services associated to them along with some critical applications (OBE and ACS) with very stringent operational constraints in terms of transaction throughput and system availability.
Building a great product takes a great team. Here, everyone has an impact on the software we build and run, and on the millions of travelers relying on it every day.


Are you the C++ Senior Software Development Engineer / Scrum Master we are looking for?

You will work in a SAFe organization, closely with the train triumvirat (RTE, PM, System Architect), with other Scrum Masters and Product Owners, and with multiple Amadeus actors (Platform, Airline, Distribution, etc.) to deliver a stable, scalable, performant PNR storage service.
