Booking.com – Why Work For Us?


Planet Earth's #1 Accommodation Site

Discover your next career adventure 

As the world’s #1 accommodation site, Booking.com is simplifying the way people experience travel. We have one mission that unites us – to help travelers, whatever their budgets, easily discover, book, and enjoy the world’s best places to stay. Our 13,000+ driven and diverse employees work with this mission in mind, in 187+ offices around the globe. With more than one million properties listed, we’re constantly innovating to help people experience the world.  

Our culture is all about innovating and staying humble

Working hard every day as a team, being creative, and challenging each other gives us strength. We share our best ideas and run with them while having tons of fun. Being open and supporting each other every step of the way means we can deliver the best results in every part of the business. From building Booking Cares volunteer projects to help the people and places where we all live and work, to our Community Fund for colleagues in times of need, we encourage a culture of giving back. 


Together we shape the future of travel

Big Challenges. Great people. 

The technology team at Booking.com is focused on creating a seamless user experience for millions of bookers and property owners. Working in a fast-paced, start-up environment, we take full ownership of our product area. This freedom allows us to make real and impactful changes, while always challenging each other to do more. Data-driven and A/B testing-focused, our day-to-day revolves around constantly providing an improved user experience.

Stand out with a few insider tips

General tips 

We’re on the lookout for someone who fits our culture as well as the job, and who is just as enthusiastic about working here as we are. Use your application to show us why you’re choosing Booking.com. Do your research on the company, take our product for a test spin, and always be yourself.

Resume & Motivation letter 

Your resume looks its best when it has perfect grammar, name and contact details, chronological job history, brief descriptions of your previous work and relevant achievements. We look for a well-structured document that gets the message across in a concise way. Your resume should be a snippet of your complete profile, not a full list of everything you’ve ever done. Use it to highlight links to your online profiles, such as LinkedIn, personal website, blog, or social media. Job application magic happens when you build a credible digital narrative foundation, using relevant channels. Use the motivation letter to make your reason for applying crystal clear. Our recruiters want to learn how your background fits the open position and what makes you, you. Tailor your motivation to the job requirements and explain in detail how your passion, drive and enthusiasm make you the right person for the job.

Interview 

Ace your interview by coming prepared and being yourself. We’re excited to get to know you, which is why “I don’t know” is a perfectly acceptable answer to a question if it’s the truth. We’d rather you be honest than stumble over words. Before the interview, read up on our company, our values and check out our blogs. Show us why Booking.com should be your next career destination and don’t hide your enthusiasm. Interviews at Booking.com are conversations, so relax and let’s get to know each other.
