Senior Software Engineer
At Seatfrog, we believe in taking every journey beyond the ordinary. We’re empowering people to transform their travel experiences using technology that’s a joy to use.
Grabbing a last minute upgrade, escaping to the lounge or changing your journey last minute should be effortless, but it’s not. Seatfrog is here to change that, partnering with innovative companies across the travel industry to offer extras that make your journey extra-special without blowing the budget. We create win-win situations for our partners and customers, using data science to pinpoint the best time for our partners to offer an upgrade whilst delivering a seamless customer experience.
