BACKEND ENGINEER

Ljubljana, SIFull Time

WHO WE ARE, WHERE WE ARE GOING AND WHY WE NEED YOU

Flexkeeping was born out of a simple desire (as well as not such a great personal experience of our founder) to make the life of hotel professionals easier. We saw that they still operate with pen and paper, which leads to inefficiency, chaos and overall unhappy employees as well as bad guest experience. To solve this issue, we’ve created a platform that helps hoteliers run their hotels better. Think WhatsApp, Asana, Trello, and PowerBI combined, but designed specifically for hoteliers needs. That’s Flexkeeping.

Since we took our first steps in 2013, we have seen 300% year-on-year growth and expanded to over 40,000 rooms worldwide. We went from 0 to 💪. However, we are not planning to stop anytime soon.

We want to bring Flexkeeping into the pockets of all hotel professionals in the world. To reach this, and set the new industry standard while we’re at it, we need YOU – you, who is not afraid of a challenge, of putting in the time, of playing in the big league. You, who is interested in not only work, but also PLAY. If you got it, we want it.
