Job Title

Senior Network Controller (m/f/d)

You probably think that working for an online travel agency that manages hundreds of millions of bookings per year or working for an airline that operates hundreds of thousands of flights per year must bring their fair chair of challenge. If so, just try to realize the scalability, the performance, the resiliency, the geographical distribution challenges that are behind the system that powers 150 airlines, hundreds of websites, tens of airports, thousands of hotel properties. Just one fact to illustrate: In peak times, we process more than 17,000 transactions per second (1 billion+ transactions per day) at an average system response time of less than 0.3 seconds.

Do you have ideas on how to improve travel for everyone? Do you find the idea of working in a diverse, multicultural environment exciting?
Are you ready to make an impact across the world? Great, then join us! Let’s shape the future of travel together. #shapethefutureoftravel@Amadeus
