Description

Cloudbeds provides the platform that powers hospitality, driving streamlined operations, increasing reservations and revenue, and enabling memorable guest experiences for lodging businesses of all sizes and types. Named the No. 1 PMS and No. 1 Hotel Management System by Hotel Tech Report in 2022, Cloudbeds is trusted by properties across the globe for its award-winning front desk, revenue, distribution, guest acquisition and guest engagement solutions seamlessly combined in a single unified system.

Behind the Cloudbeds platform is a growing team of 700+ employees distributed across 40+ countries speaking 30+ languages. From data architects to UX designers, integrations managers to payments experts, former hotel managers to former OTA executives, our team comprises the brightest minds in technology and hospitality working to solve the industry’s biggest challenges.

From the beginning, we've believed that our people are our greatest asset, so we founded the company as #RemoteFirst, #RemoteAlways with shared that allow our team to thrive. This means we:

  • Hire the best people around the world;

  • Emphasize the value of results over hours put in;

  • Provide flexibility in working hours and locations;

  • Foster an inclusive environment that celebrates bold thinking and diverse perspectives;

  • Offer open vacation policies, free LinkedIn Learning, and other benefits that promote well-being and professional development.

As a Senior Front-end Engineer, you will develop new architectures, features, and best practices, as well as aid the application's front-end transformation to react. You will contribute to and support our vision of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) by engineering frontend components and services. As a Senior Front-end Engineer, your goal is to deliver an exceptional experience to our customers all around the world.

This role will be a member of the Booking Engine squad. Driving direct bookings has always been important for our customers, as direct bookings have a lower customer acquisition cost than third-party bookings, they put the property in control, and provide the property more ability to interact with their guests (ie sending pre-arrival forms and upsells).

Across the entire hotel industry, direct bookings account for roughly 30% of the booking volume. The same is true for Cloudbeds properties. And while some properties drive a very low volume of direct bookings, others invest heavily into marketing campaigns and guest loyalty, and drive upwards of 90% of the entire booking volume as direct bookings. In general, there has been a recent trend where properties, particularly major brands, focus increasingly on driving direct bookings.
