Travelworld is an international travel portal based in Vienna. The company is currently working on a relaunch of its platform and services. In the upcoming version of the web application, worldwide accommodations in the high-class segment should be bookable online. But that’s not all: together with a strong partner in the background, a customer can also book additional services such as luxury sports cars, sailboats, VIP-boxes in football stadiums and much more. Following the motto: „Better than best price!“, we want to become an important player in the travel portal market. Therefore, we are looking for strengthening our small but growing developer team. Travelworld is part of a large global enterprise, providing secure jobs and excellent career prospects.
