Python Job Details

Here at Luxury Escapes, our mission is to delight our customers with incredible deals for the world's best holidays. We are a collective of forward-thinking people, driven to challenge the travel industry and ourselves to bring ever better travel experiences to our customer community.

We offer a flexible working environment and to help our teams work collaboratively and effectively, this role requires you to have Australian working rights and primarily office based.

Travel bounced back in 2022 and is set to be even bigger in 2023. Luxury Escapes is building new teams to help us deliver some very exciting products which we will tell you all about once you apply!

Our cross-functional teams include Product Managers, Designers, and Engineers focused on delivering solutions and solving problems rather than simply completing tickets.

The structure is flat and the process super-lean, focusing on a culture of MVP, iteration, and "build, measure, learn", with continuous improvement at the heart of everything we do.

Our team share in-depth experience from the worlds of Python, Data Engineering, React, PostgreSQL, AWS, and more. We love learning and hold regular "tech forums" to learn from peers or discuss the tech issues of the day. We also have some really great developers, so you'll be both well supported and challenged!

This role is for our Recommendations team. As a Senior Engineer on our Recommendations team at Luxury Escapes you will be working alongside data scientists and engineers, and web developers. You’ll be responsible for bringing our machine learning models to life on our website and throughout our customer lifecycle journey.

We're agile, so we have daily stand ups, autonomous teams, and developers deploy to production many times every day. We have a flat, collaborative structure both within and between teams.

We operate a flexible working environment and are conveniently located in Sydney a short walk from Wynyard station, close to great lunch spots and cafes.

Employee experience is king here, with weekly events, monthly recognition programs and significant professional development opportunities. (We have won awards for it – but the HR team don’t like to brag much!)

Relevant skills:

  • Python
  • Data Engineering
  • Backend web development
  • SQL (we use PostgreSQL and Google BigQuery)
  • Automated testing and continuous integration
  • Good communication skills, and an interest in problem solving


  • Excellent Remuneration package
  • 20% Discount on Luxury Holidays and Experiences
  • Health and Wellbeing programs
  • A bonus day of birthday leave
  • Flexible working conditions
  • Breakfast, lunch, coffee and fruit provided
  • A super collaborative team that enjoys creating great platforms

If this role sounds appealing but you don't check every box, apply anyway, we want to hear what you can do!

We are a 2023 Circle Back Initiative Employer – we commit to respond to every applicant.
