REACT NATIVE DEVELOPER

THE COMPANY 

Day 8 Experiences Ltd is the company behind The Yacht Week & The Ski Week; since our start in 2006 we have taken onboard more than 50,000 guests from over 100 countries and established a truly global community of travellers from all paths of life. The head office in London, UK is run by a team of young, highly skilled and passionate individuals who puts making friends and exploring the world at the heart of everything they do. While we are just over 30 people working full-time all year, the team extends to hundreds more over the event season. The largest part of our success is down to our knowledgeable, enthusiastic and incredibly hardworking team.

Our vision is to create extraordinary experiences that spread joy, spark an appreciation for our planet and inspire curious people to become part of our global family.

THE TEAM & BENEFITS

You’d join our small tech team, which is responsible for all the webapps and the in-house booking systems - so be ready to dive right into real world scenarios! But, don’t worry, your colleagues will always be there to help you out.
