trivago Tech Camp - For Tech Students - August 28th to September 8th 2017



Thinking about a career in software engineering?

trivago Tech Camp is a great opportunity for you to get an insight into what we do, and be challenged in a diverse, dynamic and entrepreneurial environment.
You'll also be paid for the time you're hacking with us!
If you're a future tech-disruptor who would like to join an international project team, and see the impact of your work on a global platform, apply today!

What you'll do:

Within the 2-week intensive program:
  • You will have an on-boarding session to get to know your colleagues.
  • You will have the unique opportunity to work on real tech challenges.
  • You will get a mentor who will accompany you throughout the whole program.
  • Finally, we will have an award ceremony for celebrating the best project results.
Project examples:
  • Automation of a complex workflow involving dozens of project managers, translators, and designers. You will crawl JIRA, determine new progress, notify people, and model the progress state in the database.
  • Write a script that takes Accounting's exchange rates files as input, then produces the correct rates for any given date. Extra task for this would be build a simple web app with input fields including ‘From [currency]‘, ‘To [currency]’ and ‘Choose date’; which would subsequently return the corresponding rate.
  • Write a script that could read .pdf postlogs, take the data, then produce a .csv output following the standardized template for postlogs.

What you'll definitely need:

  • To be currently studying.
  • To know at least one general purpose programming language (Java, PHP, C/C++, C#, Scala, Python, Go, etc.).
  • To have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of web development.
  • The ability to work well independently, and self-prioritize effectively.

What we'd love you to have:

  • PHP skills.

Life at trivago is...

  • The belief that factual proof, not seniority, determines which path to take.
  • Self-determined working hours based on measuring productivity through goals rather than number of hours spent in the office.
  • Being supported in all your needs, including relocation assistance and language classes for international arrivals.
  • The freedom to embrace small-scale failures as a path to large-scale success.
  • The opportunity to develop personally and professionally with regular free workshops, seminars, sports and activities.
  • The ability to push your ideas through to execution without being held back by bureaucracy.
  • Working at our head office in Düsseldorf, a city boasting the 6th highest quality of life in the world for expats.
