We love Kubernetes and Docker. These tools form the foundation that allow us to deploy fast and easily.
Our backend & (micro-) services are running on Scala, NodeJs, Go and Haskell. We like to develop in a test-driven and functional way whenever possible.

What the customer sees is mainly based on React and Redux with the help of a Design System and Microfrontends for the web, while we use Swift for iOS and Kotlin for our Android Apps.

We store data in various databases like Mongodb, Postgres and MySql, using RabbitMQ to communicate changes to technologies like ElasticSearch and global CDNs for highest performance.

With 50 Terabyte of data, increasing by 100 GB every day, we use AWS as a big data infrastructure. We use tools like S3, Athena, EMR, Spark and Airflow. For data analysis and machine learning we use Python and R.
We empower our teams to experiment with new technologies, because we think that by using the right technology for the problem, a great user experience for our customers can be reached. Also, the insights we gain from our users flow back into our product development based on A/B testing.

Engineering @ HolidayCheck
One strategic pillar of HolidayCheck is to not have the biggest but the best team. To work towards that, we empower a culture of learning, feedback and ownership. Each team can decide which technology to use that is best suited to solve their current problem. Our teams are small and work agile. We are very open minded to try out new things and contribute to open source. In corona-free times, we host and sponsor meetups and conferences, as well as organizing a yearly internal IT conference which takes place at a resort, where our customers usually enjoy their vacation.
About us
Do you want to be part of the next generation of holidays? In a constant changing environment, HolidayCheck wants to be there when the Urlaubers look again for their greatest time of the year. We want to bring them back to the beach!
At the heart of our corporate culture are our values. We live by them every day! They have helped us create an environment of continuous personal growth and trust, where HolidayCheckers can work autonomously and with a lot of flexibility, in small, self-organised teams. We improve ourselves daily, listen carefully to our customers and deliver working software to them frequently.
