Technical Architect

About Us

On the Beach isn"t a normal travel company and neither are our people. We"re united in our mission to become Europe"s leading online retailer of beach holidays. We are taking over tech in the city, so join us now! Our award winning team has relocated to our multi-million tech HQ in the heart of Manchester and we are looking for passionate and ambitious like-minded tech superstars to join our journey.

About You

You are passionate about technology, you thrive on solving problems, you love to learn and get a kick from working as part of a team. You care about your craft, you want to build exceptional products and be proud of what you deliver. You are flexible, open to new ideas and always looking for ways to improve. You’re an expert communicator, happy to share your ideas and can bring people along with you. You understand working in an agile environment, have a strong technical background and a great architectural track record.

The Opportunity

We are building the future of travel and we want you to be part of it. Architecture is central to our technology strategy and fundamental to our future success. Our technology platform has grown rapidly over the last decade, both through the efforts of our hundred-strong in-house engineering team and also by acquisition, leaving us with some interesting architectural challenges across a number of key areas. Our objective is to architect a platform that will support rapid change, significant growth and innovation across multiple brands and devices. Your main focus will be in working hands-on with engineering teams to ensure technical implementation remains aligned with architectural strategy, growing the team’s architectural skills along the way. Alongside this you will work closely with the Chief Architect to define the future of the platform, and as our first Technical Architect, play a defining role in shaping how the architecture team grows and works to support the rest of the team. 

This is the PLACE…

To elevate your career and join a passionate team of like-minded techies, striving to produce the very best.

We believe in maintaining a positive work/life balance, so to help out, we offer flexible working, discounts on local amenities (including gym membership and restaurants) and a free bar - stocked with an enviable selection provided by some of Manchester’s finest breweries - to close out R&D time on a Friday afternoon.  To help you find the time to really relax (as well as helping you become a genuine beach expert) we offer generous staff discounts for your family and friends on our fantastic beach holidays. On top of this we offer Share Incentive Plan, workplace pension, wellness sessions, healthcare plan, training and development, conferences, social events, enhanced maternity/paternity pay...the list goes on.
