DWP DIGITAL IS DIVERSIFYING WOMEN CONTRIBUTION IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR

DWP Digital is changing the way public service works to become a leading example of agile delivery. They are building a team of digital specialists to make simpler, clearer, faster services that put the people who use them first. It’s a huge challenge. DWP Digital services touch the lives of almost everyone in the UK at some point. Their IT systems manage 7.35 million benefit claims each year, paying £165 billion in benefits and pensions. Almost everyone in the UK will be a customer at some point, so it is only right that their workforce represents the people they are serving. At Techmeetups, we are glad to announce that the team will be joining again us for the London Tech Job Fair.

The company has signed up to the Tech Talent Charter (TTC) and in doing so they are pledging to do better to reflect the diversity of the population in our tech workforce.

The TTC is an initiative, supported by the government’s policy paper on the UK Digital Strategy, to redress the gender balance in tech roles. By signing up, DWP Digital is joining a number of other government departments as well as some of the biggest leaders in the tech industry such as KPMG, PWC and Sky.

DWP Digital is at the forefront of changing the services DWP offers customers. And diversity and inclusion are at the heart of how they do this. DWP is the largest government employer of women with over two thirds of our workforce female. But they are aware that in tech roles women are still under-represented: it’s estimated that only 27% of digital roles are held by women. So the team is committed to redressing the gender balance. They have an ambitious goal to achieve a 50% increase in female representation across the organisation by 2020.

The company also holds the role of gender champion for DWP and is committed to creating a workplace where everyone feels included and able to be themselves. In an evolving workplace, diversity allows challenge to ‘traditional’ ways of working.

They've signed the charter to demonstrate  commitment to achieving diversity in the digital ecosystem.

The charter outlines a number of pledges – here’s what they are doing to meet those promises:

Inclusive recruitment processes

So many factors influence a woman’s career decisions: from gendered toys in childhood to subtle messaging through education that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects are for boys.

We’re using research and insights about recruitment with the aim of removing bias from hiring. For example, we know that including certain words in job descriptions can put women off applying for roles. And we’re constantly improving our processes to remove gender bias. Right now we’re trailing new software that uses behavioural science to remove bias and improve predictive validity in hiring – to make it fairer for everybody.

Employment policies and practices that support the development and retention of an inclusive and diverse workforce

We also have a number of networks for people with minority characteristics with the aim of developing these colleagues in their careers. They provide excellent networking and training opportunities that help build confidence and engagement skills.

We know the value of having female role models in the workplace. So we’re leading the way as pioneers of a Digital Voices programme; a ground-breaking, 5-month agenda of activities to help women develop their digital skills and knowledge, while building the confidence to be more vocal - whether that’s on social media or through speaker opportunities.

Lin, one of our Digital Voices

DWP is the biggest government department and we’re on an exciting digital transformation journey. The opportunities to develop a career here and build new skills are huge. We’ve got excellent career pathways and professional communities where you can share knowledge and best practice.

Sharing best practice

We already work collaboratively across industry, but we’ll be working collectively with other signatories to further develop and share best practice. For example, our annual Women in Digital event brings together a range of voices from across the digital sector and digital government – and it keeps getting bigger and better! It’s a chance for women to network, collaborate and take away knowledge and tools to help them in their digital role.

DWP DIGITAL IS DIVERSIFYING WOMEN CONTRIBUTION IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR

Discussing gender issues

Contributing employment diversity data

We’ll work with colleagues across the Civil Service to collect robust data so that we can begin to understand any tech specific issues. We’re using our annual People Survey to collect data on diversity and we’re collecting data on application and recruitment activity. We’re also encouraging individuals to safely and anonymously share their diversity characteristics.

By collecting better qualitative and quantitative data, we can better understand the specific issues that affect our professions and work out where we need to improve to build a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

Every person matters

Research shows employees are more productive when they feel engaged and engagement increases when employees feel valued. A more inclusive digital service will allow our employees to feel more valued. Working together we’re taking steps to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to participate in developing themselves regardless of their characteristics providing equal opportunities for everyone.

TrueLayer is Introducing Custom Financial Innovation to Redefine Fintech Business

With new financial regulations comes great opportunity, and one London-based startup wants to be the middleman for the open banking era. By providing access to the newly opened data streams being released by major banks across Europe, TrueLayer is here to power fintech startups looking to build innovative financial applications for users. This could be by coaching people to better use their money by accessing recent transactions, comparing financial products to get customers a better deal, or offering more seamless payments or lending options.

TrueLayer is building  APIs that enable turnkey access to the opened banking data without fintechs having to design their own integrations.

TrueLayer streamlines the process, removing the need for fintechs to build and maintain compliance, security, reporting, and administration considerations by outsourcing this to TrueLayer and focusing on its front end, offering and delivering value to customers.

TrueLayer sits between the newly opened up financial data and the fintech companies looking to deliver new services on top of that data. We are glad to announce that the team will be joining us for the London Tech Job Fair

Check out the Q&A below to follow Truelayer’s structure and culture in delivering these life changing tech developments.

1. Who are the creators of your brand? What do they do in life, what are they passionate about?

Our brand is the result of a team effort. It changes and grows along with our people. We are passionate about building a transparent image that is able to describe both our vision, products, and company culture.

At TrueLayer we are trying to shape our brand around our team, rather than branding our team with a pre-established brand. We are not interested in selling a status. We recognise the importance of authentic storytelling. We want our enthusiasm and shared beliefs to be visible to everybody. We want our products to communicate our passion and commitment. We want to learn from our mistakes and inspire others. We want a brand that is fluid, versatile, and able to adapt to our vision. — Mirta Rotondo, Head of Experience Design, TrueLayer.

  1. What's the story behind the creation of your company? What inspired you to start your business?

TrueLayer was founded in 2016 by serial entrepreneurs, Francesco Simoneschi and Luca Martinetti and it is the result of a life-long friendship and successful partnership that goes back in time since 1999. Prior to TrueLayer, they co-founded 3 other companies that eventually got acquired or sold. Francesco and Luca shared a passion for software engineering, product development and making new things while sharing risks, successes, failures and fun along the way.

TrueLayer started with the idea of making bank infrastructure more accessible to be the catalyst of an entirely new ecosystem of open and inclusive financial innovation thanks to new OpenBanking regulation flourishing around the world. The company raised $45M from top tier venture capital investors to foster growth and scale the team. As new challenges arise, Francesco and Luca remain convinced that the biggest assets of a successful venture are the team and the execution, because the idea itself, is just not enough.

TrueLayer London Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

3. What's your current view on the market you work in? What makes you feel like your brand stands out?

Open Banking and PSD2 challenges are: fragmentation, technical implementation, regulatory access, and consumer trust. Our strategy to solve these issues is to build a platform that simplifies complexities, offers products that leverage regulations, and wins consumer trust because of our transparent approach.

4. What's the thing that you appreciate/value/cherish more about what you do as a brand?

We are a startup in an increasingly competitive landscape and we aim to be at the forefront of innovation in the Open Banking space. In order to deliver the very best products to our clients, we believe that we need to think creatively, push boundaries, act fast and take (calculated) risks.

5. Do you have a special story of something unique you did for a client? Something unusual you did as a team, something memorable you'd like to share?

At TrueLayer, our co-founders lead by example. One of the best things about this is that they are often the first people to put up their hands and let the team know that they made a mistake. This was memorably displayed by our CTO, Luca, when it came to an overnight service issue that was promptly fixed in the early hours of the morning. The transparency and honesty shown when things go wrong helps cultivate a safe space for people to take risks and encourages full ownership of work.

6. What's your company culture like? What is it that you want to represent?

At TrueLayer, we execute, build, make, and do things . We are all responsible for and care about the overall success of the company, from our product to our people to our processes. Each and every person is empowered and encouraged to impact the business in positive ways. If you see a problem, we want you to go right ahead and sort it (then say it!).

7. What is your team like? How do you work?

People matter at TrueLayer. We believe that we will win together as a team. We are not here to compete with one another but rather to support, collaborate and bring out the best in one another. We celebrate each other’s unique traits and value individual strengths while recognising that we all have weaknesses. This is a place where each person can be their authentic TRUEself.

TrueLayer London Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

8. What kind of people are you looking for? Who's the best match for your team?

We are looking for bright people who can own their role but who are also not afraid to get involved in other areas of the company. We hire for smarts and potential. We want people to come in, own their role and make a TRUEImpact in the business and on our customers.

More specifically, we are looking for:

  • All sorts of Engineers
  • Product Managers
  • Client Support Advisors, some technical and some less technical
  • Legal counsel

9. What benefits and perks do you offer your employees? What's the biggest plus of working for you?

The biggest draw to working at TrueLayer is that we have a very flexible working style. It is completely built on trust with no micro-managing. We hire people who are the experts at their roles, and we trust them to complete their tasks no matter what time they start or leave the office. Our flexible working culture means that we never overwork for the sake of office hours.

We also have enhanced maternity and paternity leave, well above the government standards.

Everyone is entitled to a  generous learning budget, private healthcare that covers everyone from the day they start at TrueLayer, and a work from home policy as well as meaningful equity options in the company.

Aside from this - annual retreats, regular socials, a well-stocked drinks fridge (alcoholic and soft) and snack bar that’s open all day, any day.

TrueLayer London Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

10. What are your goals and plans for the future? What's your biggest ambition?

At TrueLayer, we build universal APIs that allow companies to securely and efficiently access their customers’ bank accounts to share financial data, make payments and validate their identity.

Our ongoing goal is to power the new era of financial innovation by growing the Open Banking economy in Europe, and beyond.

DWP Digital, Interaction Design

DWP DIGITAL London Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

Mikey

In June, I returned to DWP Digital after spending almost 3 years working as a digital designer at Sky Bet in Leeds.

My previous stint for DWP Digital at the Newcastle hub was one of the best times of my career, working with some of the best design thinkers in the northeast – most of whom are still there. Working as part of a proper multi-disciplinary team really made me up to my game and pushed me further in my career than I could ever imagine.

Sky Bet was a great place to work, but I always missed designing ‘for the people’ and delivering things that are needed, as opposed to just wanted. In short, I missed making a positive difference.

FOCUSING ON MAKING THINGS BETTER

Working in government is challenging yet motivating. Our focus is on making things better, working out in the open and collaborating as part of a team. My current design team at the Leeds hub consists of content designers, interaction designers, service designers and user researchers working closely with product owners, engineering colleagues and business analysts to improve DWP’s digital services.

Mostly I really enjoy the challenge; speaking to people of all different skills from different parts of the business, presenting to stakeholders and giving them the data they require and working in a proper agile environment. And the challenge is made much easier as I’m surrounded by people I can trust to ask questions and seek advice from.

OUR PURPOSE SETS US APART

The set up at DWP Digital varies in many ways. For example, where User Experience is labelled as a job title, a ‘thing’ exclusive to designers or experienced architects in other systems, where it’s seen as the responsibility of the team and should be vested in everything we do.

Also, there’s a huge difference in the size and purpose of the task we have in DWP Digital. It’s often said that the most important project of your career will be at DWP, and a couple of months back into it, I agree with this. The project I’m part of will affect many millions of people’s lives. I enjoy knowing the work I am doing is giving people hope, making their life better - this was a major reason why I joined the team.

SO FAR, SO GOOD

Am I enjoying it? It’s a question I’ve asked myself a lot.

It’s very different from my previous roles (removing previous DWP experience). One thing I noticed on my first week back was the amount of intelligence that is in each meeting. It blew me away when I took a step back to listen to what people were saying and sharing their experiences.

It validated my decision to join and really makes me want to step up and share more about my design opinions, whilst hopefully adding value to the team. It’s an interesting and progressive environment, one where I’m fully motivated to become a valued member of the community and really help grow the value of the design practice.

DWP DIGITAL INSPIRING CAREERS BY NEW APPROACH TO DESIGN

DWP Digital is changing the way public service works to become a leading example of agile delivery. They are building a team of digital specialists to make simpler, clearer, faster services that put the people who use them first. It’s a huge challenge. DWP Digital services touch the lives of almost everyone in the UK at some point. Their IT systems manage 7.35 million benefit claims each year, paying £165 billion in benefits and pensions.

Check out DWP Digital testimonial and short documentation below of their experience inspiring career changes.

The design community in and around Newcastle is bustling and ever-expanding; you can always be sure to find events tailored around UX, events that support women in the creative industries, as well as meetups about Front End Development, Content Design and graphics. As a naturally curious designer, I try to immerse myself within the community and get to as many events as possible.

Back in September 2018, I was working as a creative designer at local branding agency and had always had an interest in making design more accessible, whether that be for the web or in print. So when I heard about the DataJam North East event which was being held at the new and prestigious Newcastle Helix, I decided to go along and see what it was all about.

DWP DIGITAL London Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

Clare Brown - interaction designer, BPDTS Ltd

BRINGING DATA AND SERVICE DESIGN TOGETHER

DataJam 2018 took place over 2 days and brought together people in data and service design to collaborate, look at issues affecting the North East region and see how they can improve public services.

The conference was refreshing to attend and hosted a variety of talks from both public and private companies, giving an insight into their latest projects and approaches to designing products and services for users.

In particular, sessions run by Difrent and OrangeBus inspired me greatly and I came away that day realising I'd like to be part of a team working on these kinds of projects, collaborating to iterate and test with the public before putting the product out there.

The event was well attended by people across the industry, so it was useful to chat to people in various roles in different companies to get a feel for the kind of work they do.

I took a lot away from the event and had a bubbling feeling I'd like to make a shift in my career and make a jump into a more UX design role.

How could I do this? 

Well, I decided to throw myself into learning more about service design, accessibility, UX, UI and read as many blogs as I could on platforms like Medium, FutureGov, DWP Digital and reading digital content on government websites.

I also decided to attend another digital conference, this time in Edinburgh for the one day DIBI Fest 2018 event. The event consisted of talks from industry leaders, local companies and even included illustrators. Taking in everything I'd grasped from DIBI and DataJam gave me the confidence to start applying for UX roles.

Within a few months I was lucky enough to land the role of Associate Interaction Designer here at DWP Digital.

As someone who was feeling uninspired by her day job, DataJam gave me the confidence to flick the switch and make a change in my career. It's great starting afresh as there’s so much to learn in my new role. I’m ready to jump into everything Interaction Design and can’t wait to see how I progress!

See you in London!

OpenAsset is the only cloud digital asset management software specifically designed for architecture, engineering, construction and real estate firms. It was developed in close collaboration with one of the UK's leading architects, it is specifically designed to solve the digital asset management issues of project-driven organizations.

The company takes the effort out of organizing digital assets and improves project information management by simplifying the cataloguing and searching of digital assets. We are honoured that the team will be joining us at the London Tech Job Fair.

OpenAsset is a cloud-based solution, therefore project workers can manage and access their digital assets anywhere and anytime. Peter Walsham, Axomic's joint CEO and Co-founder commenting ongoing success of OpenAsset said: “This is a very powerful tool to help our clients improve their management of digital assets. We've developed OpenAsset in close collaboration with our clients and I believe this is reflected in the extremely positive feedback we consistently receive. Users now have an intuitive tool to help support their work, and that's what this is all about, making their lives easier."

OpenAsset continues to consolidate its position as the leading image library of choice for AEC and Real Estate firms worldwide. OpenAsset is currently used by over 112,000 professionals and 650 clients in the architectural field and is the market-leading image library for European architects. Axomic had been targeting consulting engineers for 12 months and had already signed Max Fordham, Adams Kara Taylor, Price & Myers, Cundall and Campbell Reith within the time of commencing business. Their successes prove the rising importance of marketing and imagery within the consulting engineer field.

OpenAsset London Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

Derwent London plc, a leading property development company based in London, has been using OpenAsset for a number of years and high-quality images are key tools used to promote the business. The marketing department uses images to produce brochures, presentations, web pages, and other promotional materials.

Susannah Woodgate, marketing manager at Derwent London says “OpenAsset was designed with clients in the property and construction sector in mind. We work with many of the companies who use OpenAsset so as a property development company we felt very comfortable choosing a system so well established in the construction industry." Image resources are crucial to the company's marketing strategy. Users from across the company can now find images much more quickly. Once they've got what they want OpenAsset allows them to spend less time managing images and more time creating powerful marketing materials.

We live in a tech-charged, click and share world. Which means that if you have any involvement in marketing or sales at an AEC firm, two things are true: You have an ever-growing cache of digital image assets. And you have more channels to share those assets than ever before, from presentations and proposals to your website and social media channels.

According to OpenAsset’s recent research, 52% of AEC firms maintain image libraries sized well over 20K assets. And 56% of firms say they will create more or a lot more images this year than last. To read more about the image issue and how AEC firms are addressing it, check out their e-book, State of Digital Asset Management in AEC. Despite the proliferation of image assets available, and the growing demand among clients to see detailed photography illustrating your project experience, many marketers revert to using the same images over and over because they simply don’t have the time to search for and find project photos.

OpenAsset London Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

That’s where a digital asset management solution can help. Company research shows that firms that have not invested in a DAM are the most likely to say that fewer than 50% of their image assets can efficiently be found and used. Part of the problem is that marketing teams, sales teams, and project teams tend to store their assets in separate places, usually in file folders shared throughout the office or company, which tend to get disorganized. Those who are searching for images don’t always have easy access, or even know they exist.

On the other hand, companies that have a DAM and a digital asset manager are much more likely to say that over 75% of images can be quickly accessed and used. As a single and centralized photo library, a DAM affords easier and faster image access not just to marketers, but to partners and principals, the business development team, project managers, and others. In fact, DAM users typically open up image access to more people in their organization, because with DAM, product owners can control how images are used and who has access to which images.

As a result, DAM users say they benefit from much greater marketing productivity and operational efficiency, and that marketing is cleared as a production bottleneck in their firms. They benefit from automated, efficient workflow that enables faster, easier production of capabilities packages, case studies, RFP and tender responses, and all the other items on their growing list of deliverables. When firms select a DAM that is project-based, the outcome gets even better.

OpenAsset London Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

Of course, not all DAMs are created equal. A DAM that is project-focused is more likely to better meet the needs of AEC firms because it allows users to organize images around the projects they market. A DAM with project folders, automated project keyword capabilities, and the ability to connect with your ERP and tag assets with project metadata; including client, services rendered, discipline, and location, makes it that much easier for marketers and others in the firm to find and use the images they need.

Images can be easily and automatically tagged and categorized, and people can search for all assets related to specific project or category of projects. With a project-based DAM, you also enjoy easy access to the other essential details about the project, including budget, project description, and team members.

If your company is looking for a way to take control of its digital assets to better showcase its project expertise (and what AEC firm isn’t?), then a project-based DAM may be just the answer. With the system in place, the next time anyone in your firm needs images related to specific project, the assets they need will be just a click away.

TAKE YOUR IT SKILLS TO A GLOBAL LEVEL THROUGH TRAVEL AT HOLIDU

Holidu is devoted to building the world’s best search engine for vacation rentals. The company is here to make finding and booking the perfect rental finally easy. This journey involves a rapidly growing team of travel and technology enthusiasts from all over the world. 

As a result, Holidu was recognized as one of the most popular startup employers in Germany by Gründerszene in collaboration with Kununu. The team consists of more than 170 people coming from more than 30 different nations. Their travel mates include investors and mentors who have helped companies to achieve global success. 

We are glad to have HOLIDU joining our Job Fair in Munich Tech Job Fair 2019 . Help yourself to a ticket  here  and take this exciting opportunity to meet the tech travel moguls.

Holidu’s team of travel and technology experts will be at your service to introduce you to their hottest job offers and their amazing travel directory.

Check out the Q&A below to get a sneak peek into Holidu’s company culture and structure.

Who are the creators of your brand? What do they do in life, what are they passionate about? 

The co-founder and CTO of Holidu Michael Siebers is an absolute technology and data enthusiast. Before Holidu, Michael worked at Zalando SE where he has been an early team member and helped to scale the development team to over 600 developers within less than 3 years. His entrepreneurial spirit took over at a young age, so that already during his studies in Computer Science, he had founded  PictureCloud.org.

Michael’s brother Johannes Siebers (CEO) contributes the commercial expertise. He earned his diploma in business studies after studying international business administration in Tübingen, Madrid and Sydney. After graduating, he worked with different startups at Siemens in the field of venture capital.

TAKE YOUR IT SKILLS TO A GLOBAL LEVEL THROUGH TRAVEL AT HOLIDU

What's the story behind the creation of your company? What inspired you to start your business?

“We came up with the idea to create a vacation rental search engine while planning a surfing vacation with friends. We had the task of finding a place to stay. While doing so, we realized: An unbelievable number of websites were offering the same houses at very different prices and with different availability.” says Michael Seibers. The initial idea behind Holidu seemed too obvious: Why was booking a vacation rental so much harder than booking a flight or hotel? This question inspired the vision that drives Holidu to this day.

Holidu’s team of travel and technology enthusiasts fulfills this vision by creating the world’s best metasearch engine for vacation rentals by combining state of the art technologies with  creative ideas.

Founding brothers Johannes Siebers and Michael Siebers have the mission to make finding and booking vacation rentals easy.

What's your current view on the market you work in? What makes you feel like your brand stands out? 

“The vacation rental market is gigantic (>$150bn in annual bookings worldwide) and keeps growing. Therefore, it is necessary to always stay alert, follow the trends and keep improving our product every day. Since the founding of Holidu our aim is to create the best selection of vacation rentals, more bookability, better prices, better filters and search options. We already support this with our technology but we strive every day for building superior user experience with our product. Holidu stands out because we are good at analyzing high data volumes extremely well and ensure that our customers can find the best vacation rental for the lowest price.” says Antwort Von Johannes

Why Holidu stands out:

Artificial Intelligence is crucial in tech companies but still many companies struggle to include technologies based on it. For Holidu, artificial intelligence and machine learning are an indispensable part of  day-to-day business. AI is the foundation on which Holidu is built, (they received their Exist scholarship for their image recognition technology based on it). This technology helps us to recognize duplicates of the same holiday home on different websites and it enables us to show the user the best price. The tech craftsmanship is exceptional.

The team consists of more than 170 people coming from more than 30 different nations. Between the headquarter office in Munich and further remote offices in leisure destinations everyone works efficiently together every day. Fun never falls short. Many events are organized next to work and long-lasting friendships are developed. This working atmosphere is cherished  a lot at Holidu. Furthermore, there’s a women's quota of almost 50% at Holidu. In the tech teams, Holidu is above average with about a third of female team members, and they would like to increase that number even more. The company hosts Meetup formats that are particularly popular with female developers.

TAKE YOUR IT SKILLS TO A GLOBAL LEVEL THROUGH TRAVEL AT HOLIDU

What's the thing that you appreciate/value/cherish more about what you do as a brand?

We are humbled by the opportunity to make people happy. Going on a holiday and spending quality time with friends or family is something people look probably forward to the whole year. Finding the best accommodation for one's needs, being able to book it easily and not having to worry about anything is truly a relief for travellers. We love what Holidu stands for and what our brand makes possible, because with every booking through our platform we make a family or a group’s vacation easier.

Do you have a special story of something unique you did for a client? Something unusual you did as a team, something memorable you'd like to share?

Holidu is a very diverse team and many of its members are not from Munich or Germany. “This is why we put much effort in our onboarding process where we not only help new joiners learn about Holidu and their role, but also support them to settle in the city and connect with their team members.” Pretty Unusual is also Holidu’s band, which started to play as a surprise at their summer party in 2017  and keeps entertaining the team every year. Other than that, the company organizes fun ski trips in winter, hiking trips in summer and much more!

What's your company culture like? What is that you want to represent? 

Winning as a team; Holidu is a diverse team of tech and business talent, in which strong teamwork culture is fostered and each member takes ownership of their individual contributions. At Holidu, it is a tested and confirmed belief that when proactivity and creativity with trust and freedom are paired, amazing things are accomplished by the team.

Hungry but humble; We set ourselves ambitious goals to provide real value to our customers. We work hard to achieve our aims, while continuously challenging our status quo and constantly seeking to improve our service and ourselves.

Love technology; at Holidu we believe in the power of technology to solve almost any problem. To provide our customers with the best possible user experience, we build our own technology and leverage machine learning.

The focus is on the customer; As passionate travelers ourselves, we want to make a real difference for our customers. We put our customers first in every decision and seek to be genuinely helpful. We listen to customers, partners and colleagues to serve them in a transparent and friendly manner.

What is your team like? How do you work?

It is an International team, everyone loves to travel and is eager to learn and move things forward. Different departments are working collaboratively together and have fun while doing so. Product managers, designers, techies are working together in squads.

Our team of technology enthusiasts, creative experts, and vacation rental specialists from over 30 countries proudly refine Holidu’s global platform, 24/7. The brand is set on perfecting the search process for the ideal vacation rental and making the market truly transparent.

TAKE YOUR IT SKILLS TO A GLOBAL LEVEL THROUGH TRAVEL AT HOLIDU

What kind of people are you looking for? Who's the best match for your team?

Hungry and ready individuals who love having an impact from the first day on, motivated to achieve something big with the team. Team success is greater than individual success. We want passionate and collaborative individuals committed to advancing their tech careers alongside the team.

What benefits and perks do you offer your employees? What's the biggest plus of working for you?

We reach and have an impact on millions of people using our product every month, there is a wide platform for our talent to improve in their field. We reach people of all kinds of people and this definitely boosts the culture of our team.

Growth with responsibility from the start of your career and through regular feedback, each individual is responsible for their contributions and the benefits that come along. Our working culture is very dynamic and this helps each member improve their skills and develop a high profile competence.

 What are your goals and plans for the future? What's your biggest ambition? 

“We will continue to invest in growing our inventory of attractive accommodations as well as in the further development of our technology platform in order to offer our travelers, partners and home-owners an even better service. Our mission is to finally make the search and booking of vacation homes easy. Our vision is to become the global go-to-platform for vacation rentals, by dramatically improving the user experience and combining all of the world’s instantly bookable vacation homes on our website. Making our travelers, homeowners and partners happy is a daily driver in our work. This way they can save real money and time and spend more time on what really matters: having a nice holiday and being great hosts.” Antwort von Johannes.

Lennon Wright Berlin Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

What inspired the creation of your company?

John previously worked for the “typical recruitment company” where he learnt how NOT to work with candidates.

When Lennon Wright first started in 2015 we were working with a candidate who had not worked in 9 months. He was a great developer but had had some bad luck. We found him a job outside London which was perfect for him but the transport links were not great. So we bought him a car! So he could get to work. He is still working for the client and has never looked back. Incentives are a great tool to lift candidates to their best abilities. Our international team is more like a family.

Until then, we are sharing the great success story from Riqwan about how talent.io has changed his life and how talent.io helps tech professionals like Riqwan to land their dream jobs.

Here is what Riqwan shared with us regarding how you can make talent.io work for you!

Could you tell us a bit about your background? How did you first find out about talent.io, what were you expecting?

I came across talent.io as a listing when I ran a Google search on companies to work for in Berlin. At first, I didn’t think much about it since I didn’t see many resources online about the company. I was initially skeptical about the platform’s ability to provide me with any additional value — until I received an email from my TA Katerina about making my application stronger. At that point, I started to think that this is a company committed to doing its work efficiently.

What was your experience like after initial sign up?

It was a pretty smooth process. I scheduled an interview with Kate the day after I signed up. Once we smoothed out the application together, we published my profile.

I received my first offer for an interview within a week. Within a month, I received a final job offer from Helpling!

How did this compare with your experience applying for jobs outside of talent.io?

The platform is really simple to use. I found the focus of the application on-point from a jobseeker perspective. I received regular emails whenever a communication or offer was posted, and the messaging feature was really helpful. It would however be interesting to be able to find out how many companies discounted me and why.

You had several interviews offers — did they all seem relevant, in terms of position and salary?

Yes, I received 3 invitations to interview for 3 separate companies in Berlin. Unfortunately, with the first company it didn’t work out due to some time constraints and with the second we dropped communication, but the third company I fell in love with and accepted their offer!

The products of the companies were all very relevant to my interests and the expectations in terms of salary entirely in line.

So, how’s your new job?

It’s great! The team is lovely and the office too — and the product is challenging enough to keep me excited.

Did you try many other solutions to find a job?

Only LinkedIn and AngelList. I’ve received a few offers from the Netherlands and for London, but Helpling was a company that attracted me hugely during the interview process.

What’s your single favorite point of talent.io?

Kate is great! Having an amazing Talent Advocate makes all the difference.

It is never too late for you to be the next successful individual and to share your story! Take the step: be a part of the Tech Job Fair and meet team talent.io in person.

You can sign up to talent.io online, or follow them on LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

talent.io provides a great free resource for all tech professionals who are looking for a new job in the tech industry. They will be coming to our Munich Tech Fair held on Thursday 24th of October, 2019! It is a great chance to meet experts from talent.io who can help you develop the next step in your tech career.

Grab your tickets here for the opportunity to connect face-to-face with this great venture!

To satisfy further queries about talent.io, we have shared some information with you:

One of the biggest challenges that tech companies face is hiring great candidates.

Between finding candidates who are actively looking for their next job to making sure they fit in with the company culture, it can take several months to recruit a tech candidate.

talent.io is changing that by flipping the recruitment process on its head.

What is talent.io?

talent.io is a selective, reverse recruitment platform designed to be the easiest way to find an excellent technical team.

Each Monday, talent.io hosts job-seeking tech professionals on their platform, making them visible to top tech startups which are hiring in their desired locations.

talent.io vs. Traditional Recruitment

Traditionally it is down to the job applicant to find and approach desirable companies, and this has to be done one-by-one.
More recently LinkedIn has become a popular platform for companies to approach tech professionals, however the lack of any oversight, guidance or controls on LinkedIn often results in high-demand professionals such as developers being swamped with approaches of job offers, often irrelevant and regardless of whether or not they are ready to move on.

talent.io ensures that job candidates hosted on the platform only become approachable by the verified companies at the point that they are ready to change jobs, and for the roles and technologies that they’re desire to work in.

On talent.io, transparency is key. There are no middle-men, every candidate and company have direct contact over the platform. Clients do not rely on a consultant, thus giving full transparency and control to the user base.

talent.io strives to create the simplest process from contact to hire through custom technology and streamlined processes.

The Selection Process: How talent.io Determines which Candidates and Companies to Accept?

After signing up, every candidate is assigned a specific Talent Advocate prior to their acceptance onto the platform, while every company is assigned a Client Executive who assesses the type of profiles the company needs to build out their technical team.

For candidates, this means accepting highly-qualified profiles who are actively looking for their next job.

For companies, this means meeting specific criteria such as paying market salaries, having an internal tech team, and receiving seed funding or currently generating revenue.

talent.io Munich Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019 2

Munich’s Stack and Salary Status

talent.io research shows Java, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript and Python as currently the most sought-after programming languages among hiring Munich startups.

With high living costs for Germany, Munich salaries are correspondingly high. According to PayScale, these are the typical salary ranges for software developers by seniority across all technologies:

  •  Entry Level: Average €48k, with the top and bottom 10% earning up to c.€61k and from €35k respectively

  •  Senior: Average €59k, with the top and bottom 10% earning up to c.€77k and from €42k respectively

The platform is host to tech professionals with expertise in all of these technologies among many others, alongside Data, Product, and Design specialists. Working with professionals at every stage of their career, talent.io connects tech teams with anyone from their next junior developer to their CTO.

Flightright Berlin Tech Job Fair Autumn 2019

How would you like to have your flights delayed and not be able to do anything about it? Flightright is here to help you! You can count on them to take care of business and give you what you legally deserve!

They will be at our Tech Job Fair in Berlin on the 7th of November, 2019. If you want to work for a great company, please come to this event. You won’t want to miss this great opportunity to meet them face-to-face and secure your dream job!

But first, we’d like you to know a little more about Flightright...

Our success story

Our service has revolutionised legal practice: Flightright helps all passengers to exercise their rights and enforce them with the airlines. So what do we do differently? The conventional approach of going to see a lawyer is not the most convenient and can often involve a lot obstacles and time. At Flightright, we are committed to enforcing passenger rights with our online-based legal service. Our service is known as "legal tech" and it is a refreshing, alternative to the conventional legal practice.

LEGAL TECH – Revolutionising conventional legal practice

We have been offering digital, straightforward and transparent legal assistance based on fast communication channels for more than 6 years now - with no cost risk involved for the consumer. We have programmed our own database that includes more than 80 million data records that are updated daily: strikes, weather information, new court decisions and flight data from across Europe. It recognises within a matter of seconds whether a passenger is entitled to compensation. The only part of the database that the customer sees is the compensation calculator input mask. As soon as we receive the passenger's authorisation, we start working on enforcing the claim against the airline.

This automated service has revolutionised the legal tech industry, as it encourages passengers to check and assert their compensation claims.

How It All Began

The idea for Flightright was born one day between an airport, a court and an important appointment with a priest. Philipp Kadelbach’s flight was scheduled to take off at 2 p.m., but the news at the check-in desk was: “The flight won’t be leaving until 7 p.m. at the earliest.” Philipp Kadelbach has to arrive on time, because he and his wife need the priest to give them the go-ahead for their inter-denominational marriage. He manages to book another flight for, €300 at his own expense, allowing him to arrive on time. And the priest gave the couple the green light as well.

The idea behind Flightright was born

This experience lays the foundation stone for Flightright’s success story. Kadelbach wants compensation for the flight and contacts the airline. The airline initially takes a cooperative stance before all goes quiet. Individual consumers are left completely on their own - they rarely manage to get what they are duly entitled to. And so Kadelbach and a friend came up with the brilliant idea: They want to help air passengers get the compensation they deserve -, with the help of a state-of-the-art, online-based legal service. The service puts customers on an equal footing with the airlines.

By February 2010, the project is ready to be launched, including its core feature: the website with the online calculator that automatically calculates the compensation under EU law. It only takes a few clicks for customers to enter their flight delay - the Flightright team takes care of the rest. The company has been growing steadily ever since: the team of lawyers has been joined by a customer service team, financial accountants, IT and marketing specialists.

David versus Goliath

Nothing is easy to start off with - the airlines are stubborn and want to take every case to court. The tactic of trying to wear consumers down doesn’t work and Flightright wins the vast majority of cases. From then on, the airlines take a more cooperative stance because “when we go to court, it costs the airline around twice as much”, says the founder. “It’s a great feeling knowing that you stuck to your guns as the “little David” up against a multi-billion, euro industry.”

The company now enforces compensation claims for passengers from across the globe. They are glad to have someone to stand up for them. The recommendation rate of satisfied customers is extremely high. “A lot of customers are committed to advertising our services - even in the departures lounge of the airport. That’s the best sort of praise we can get”, says a delighted Kadelbach.

  • Get it done and deliver: Colleagues can rely on you because you commit and keep promises. Deliver step by step and take over responsibility for the end result. Prioritise what is best for the company. You decide based on facts without over-analysing.
  • Work and grow together: Treat others with respect. Be open and honest with others and with yourself. Create a climate where your colleagues love coming to work. Care about the development of your colleagues, share knowledge and help out. Give direct feedback to each other, not only on things we need to improve, but especially on things we are strong at. Be ready to step out of your comfort zone.
  • Make mistakes and learn: Take calculated risks. Educate yourself further to improve your work continuously. Test fast & often to learn with lowest possible effort. Accept that mistakes can happen while being fast. Communicate mistakes quickly and proactively. Be accountable & clean up your mistakes. Make sure that a mistake is not repeated in the future. Share lessons learned and celebrate success cross-functionally.

Talent.io Berlin Autumn Tech Job Fair 2019

If you want to make a life-changing decision, then you’ve come to the right place. talent.io wants to help you succeed and so do we! They will be at our Tech Job Fair in Berlin on the 7th of November, 2019. Please come to this event and see what this awesome tech company has to offer!

Until then, we have a great success story from Edson about how talent.io has changed his life. Here’s how talent.io works with professionals like Edson and top tech companies, and as a software engineer, how you can make talent.io work for you!

Could you tell us a bit about your technical background?

I’m moving to Berlin from Italy where I’ve been working as a Backend developer, with experience in Python, Javascript and Ruby. I come originally from Peru and I did my study in Brazil.

What initially drew you to talent.io?

I was searching for a new position as a developer, when an ad about a site which reverses the recruiting process caught my attention.

Before this my solution for finding a job had mainly been directly applying to companies. Also being in contact with traditional recruiters through LinkedIn.

Submitting separate applications to companies is much more time-consuming and labour-intensive, and when you’re contacted over LinkedIn often the recruiters have an obviously scatter-gun approach. They’re contacting so many people that they’re not really interested in you individually and you’re approached with offers which are totally irrelevant to you.

We hear developers liking the reversed process quite often: How did the idea match up to your experience once you signed up?

Talent.io Berlin Autumn Tech Job Fair 2019

Once I had my profile filled out and it was initially approved on the platform I was contacted by Anthony, my Talent Advocate in Berlin. We arranged a Skype call, we talked about what I was looking for and what talent.io could do for me and then scheduled to have my profile launched on the platform.

Anthony was always really committed to helping me and gave me good advice regarding the recruiting process and how the companies were handling that.

What was it like being contacted by companies over talent.io?

I was contacted by 4 companies, 2 of which I went on to have interviews with.

The platform is simple and intuitive, and all the offers I was contacted with were relevant to my specialist technologies and the kind of work that I’d said I was looking for.

  • the talent.io platform uses filters for technologies and experience level built into the search used by hiring companies — companies anticipate a high positive response rate to offers, and reach out to individuals in whom they have a real interest.

And how is it going with the company you settled on? 😃

It’s a nice Berlin-based start-up, at this time, I’ve yet to start but I’ll be working there as a Ruby developer!

Thanks for telling us about your experience! One final question: if there’s one special thing you’d pick out about talent.io, what would it be?

The Talent Advocates at talent.io give you a lot of useful guidance and tips about being hired as a developer in the market for which they specialise (in this case, Berlin). It’s especially useful when you don’t a lot of experience searching for a technical role in a market which is unfamiliar to you.

You could be the next person to have your dream job! Please come and see talent.io in person at our Tech Job Fair in Berlin on the 7th of November, 2019. We would love another success story like this! Your future company will be waiting for you!

American Express will be at our Tech Job Fair in Lisbon tomorrow (30th of May, 2019). They have consistently been one of the top companies at our events. Please come and see what they’re all about! This might be your chance to impress them and secure your dream job!

NEW YORK and ATLANTA

American Express (NYSE:AXP) and Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) have signed an 11-year renewal extending their exclusive Delta SkyMiles Credit Cards from American Express portfolio through the end of 2029.

The long-term agreement will leverage shared strengths to deliver best-in-class value to customers, while continuing existing features, including:

  • Ongoing investment in industry-leading benefits for Delta SkyMiles Credit Cards from American Express
  • Complimentary access to the award-winning network of Delta Sky Clubs around the world for Delta Reserve Card Members and Platinum Card® Members from American Express
  • Delta participation in the Membership Rewards program from American Express, allowing those points to transfer into the SkyMiles® Program
  • Delta as an American Express Card-accepting merchant

“Delta and American Express are two great consumer brands that share a passion for service to our customers, employees and communities. Our shared trust helps us work together to find innovative ways to offer greater opportunity to our customers as we grow our long-term partnership,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian. “Enhancing customer loyalty is at the heart of our business. Our partnership with American Express provides a competitive advantage as we deliver substantial value to our customers and owners.”

“This is a true partnership steeped in common values, strong relationships and 23 years of history,” said Stephen J. Squeri, Chairman and CEO of American Express. “We are thrilled to extend our agreement in a way that combines so many of American Express’ unique assets and capabilities with Delta's large and engaged customer base to drive growth for both companies. We will be working together across our card, merchant and travel businesses to expand the partnership and believe this continues to be a very attractive platform for growth that delivers substantial benefits to our customers, our partners and our shareholders.”

As the two companies work together, Delta expects its benefit from the relationship to double to nearly $7 billion annually by 2023, up from $3.4 billion in 2018, strengthening Delta’s increasingly diversified revenue stream.

American Express expects attractive growth economics over the term of the agreement and affirmed its previous guidance for 2019 of FX-adjusted revenue growth in the 8-10 percent range and adjusted earnings per share between $7.85 and $8.35, subject to any contingencies and legal settlements1. The economics of the new terms are not expected to have a material effect on the first quarter results of American Express.

Since 1996, Delta and American Express have offered a portfolio of co-branded products that allow eligible Card Members to earn miles and receive other Delta-related benefits such as first checked bag free, Main Cabin 1 priority boarding and Delta Sky Club access. In 2018, the companies added 1 million new Delta SkyMiles Credit Card Members while spending across the card portfolio grew by double digits. Delta is the largest co-brand partner for American Express and it’s only U.S. airline consumer co-brand partner.

The airline continues to invest in the SkyMiles program, named a Best Travel Rewards program by U.S. News & World Report for the second year, while leading the industry when it comes to launching innovative ways to use miles on more Delta offerings, the latest of which is post-purchase upgrades. This pairs with the increased ability to earn miles on everyday activities through partnerships with brands customers love like Lyft and Airbnb. And, the award-winning Delta Sky Club experience continues to be a reason travelers choose to fly Delta.

1 American Express’ 2019 guidance for FX-adjusted revenue growth and adjusted EPS subject to contingencies and legal settlements are non-GAAP measures. FX-adjusted information assumes a constant exchange rate between the periods being compared for purposes of currency translation into U.S. dollars (i.e., assumes FY’19 foreign exchange rates will apply to FY’18 results when calculating year-over-year growth). A reconciliation to EPS guidance on a GAAP basis is not available without unreasonable efforts.
