Join if you want to solve travel problems for millions of customers. Straight talking management with a flat corporate structure. Website, app and brand already market leading but reinventing themselves to be nationally amd globally leading edge. Do join if you want to learn true agility which starts woth caring about solving real problems as fast as possible, learning and iterating.
Dont join if you want a cosy corner with your headphones on working on 'cool stuff'. Dont join if you dont like communicating a lot and learning new domains and skills. Do gen up on what real lean means as a culture as its largely misunderstood as poor agile due to lack of experience.
Advice to Management
Keep being an open door for new ideas to push through and recognise that the whole organisation has to learn the new skills it takes to make the next mega leap.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at the trainline.com (London, England (UK)).
Smart approach to hiring - first you do a technical test in your own time. This will probably take longer than they said it would. The test involves reviewing someone else's (bad) code and refactoring it to be better. Then if they are happy with your work you will be asked in for a pair programming exercise and a separate interview. The pair programming exercise will elaborate on the code you wrote for the technical test, incorporating it into an app.
