Location: Cardiff

Salary: Dependent on skills and experience

Hours: Full time 37.5 hours per week

An exciting new position to build a career in travel technology

Tigerbay was launched in 2008 in response to the demand for purpose-built tour operator web technology. Since then Tigerbay has designed, built and developed a system that can be delivered as an end-to-end sales and management system, or integrated with existing websites. We are currently 28 staff with offices in central Cardiff. We have several high profile customers including Mark Warner, Simpson Travel and Martin Randall.

In December, 2015, Tigerbay was acquired by the ATCORE Technology Group providing Tigerbay with investment and support from the leading supplier of high performance and e-commerce platforms to the largest leisure travel companies. ATCORE’s customers include Thomson, First Choice, TUI & Thomas Cook.

Tigerbay has experienced steady and sustainable growth, building an industry-leading reputation. We live and breathe travel, keeping abreast of the latest trends and developments and forging close relationships with our customers across the industry. We are also members of the TTI (Travel Technology Initiative) and ITT (Institute of Travel and Tourism).

Our key strength is our in-depth knowledge in both ‘Travel’ and ‘Technology’. We understand that both are required in this business and we therefore hold both equally important. Our strategy so far, and into the future, is to recruit only the best people and nurture them with the skills to succeed and we reward them accordingly. We are looking for an individual to join us and develop along an ambitious career path. There will be many opportunities for training and specialisation along the way. The work will be varied and interesting.

Our ideal candidate will receive training and insight on:

  • How to use the Tigerbay software.
  • The in-house software production processes
  • Tour operator business processes from cradle to grave
  • Skills to support tour operators in their use of our software

Key duties will include:

  • Providing 1st line technical support to our customer base
  • Logging, prioritising and analysis of service calls generated from either project implementation or through the Helpdesk.
  • Testing product functionality and recreating user scenarios. Liaising with customers to understand their needs and issues.
  • Updating the help desk ticket management system proactively
  • Undertaking support or project work, as assigned by the Helpdesk Manager or the Delivery Manager

There is no minimum qualification or previous experience in regard to this role. Instead, we seek very bright and very ambitious people.  Strong written, verbal and analytical skills are highly desirable and a keen interest in travel or technology, or both, is advantageous. However, if you already have experience of working in a software house or provider on either implementation projects or product support then this could be the opportunity for you.
