About Us!

Stratajet is the world’s first real-time private jet booking platform, changing the way people travel. With Stratajet, it’s easy to search, compare and book a private jet straight from your desktop or smartphone. We believe in making private aviation faster, simpler and accessible to more people. Founded in 2011, Stratajet has since grown to a company of 40 employees headquartered in London.

We are on the lookout for a talented Software Engineer to join our vibrant, dynamic and collaborative team based in our amazing offices in Farringdon, London. You will be part of a small, cohesive team responsible for delivering the core functionality of our real time, private flight booking experience. The role is primary backend but in such a dynamic environment you will have the opportunity to participate in all stages and layers of the application.

Engineering Culture

We are a close-knit bunch of technologists who are passionate about changing the way people fly. Working in the aviation industry poses some unique challenges beyond typical web development and we pride ourselves in using the appropriate technology for the job, leading to a tech stack that includes primarily Ruby on Rails and Angular but also Swift, .NET, Go and AWS, with a continuous deployment infrastructure and a focus on automated testing. We’re excited about testing Clojure and/or Elixir in the coming months for new services.

Our diverse and international team allows us to bring different perspectives to the technical and business problems we face, enabling us to constantly improve our platform and product offering.

But… we also know how to blow off steam with regular socials, ping-pong tournaments, game nights and an inquisitive desire to find the Ballmer Peak!
