Where the journey began…

From humble beginnings when traveling back in 2014, our co-founders at Parkos embarked on our journey to ensure that the beginning and end of your travel experience are as enjoyable as the actual adventure between!

We make airport parking a smooth, seamless and efficient process for all travelers using our TravelTech price comparison & booking platform. 

We started off by winning the major airports within the Netherlands and now operate in over 15 different countries and 3 different regions (and counting)! We’ve grown to over 120 Parkie’s and millions of travelers choose Parkos every year!

The team

Our Order & Payments team are responsible for managing our Global reservations and integrating with a myriad of different payment providers and platforms. They are also responsible for the backend development of our checkout pages. 

This is currently a team of 2 individual contributors (of 20+ developers in total and counting) and is an area of the business primed for expansion.

What you’ll bring

  • Proven experience in leading Engineering teams

  • Strong understanding of microservice architecture

  • Good understanding of large-scale payment systems and their complexities within different regions (OWASP, GDPR, ISO27001 etc.)

  • Experience as a Senior Software Engineer (ideally with Laravel and Node.js) working at scale and in a multi-region setup

  • An owner mentality and challenger mindset would set you up for success with Parkos

What we offer

  • Flexible working: We understand that people’s circumstances vary and allow you to decide where you work from. We can support on-site, hybrid, and fully-remote (so long as the timezones aren’t too far apart!)

  • Ownership: Take ownership of your work and have the opportunity to drive lasting change within Parkos

  • Growth: We provide the autonomy and personal development support for you to move quickly through the ranks at Parkos - the sky's the limit!

  • Transparency: We talk about our plans, allow everyone a voice, work together towards common objectives, and share our successes together as a team

  • Fast-pace: We love to experiment and try new things quickly. An error is only a mistake when you fail to correct it and we want to reach our destination as swiftly and smoothly as possible!
