TUI Musement is a leading Tours & Activities business. It combines a scalable digital platform with local service delivery, to offer excursions, activities, tickets and transfers in more than 50 countries worldwide. There are over 130,000 ‘things to do’ in all major holiday and city destinations, which are distributed through B2B partners, via the Musement and TUI websites and direct to TUI customers. We also offer services to cruise lines through Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services in ports worldwide. TUI Musement sold around 10 million excursions, tours and activities delivered by our international colleagues located around the world and is one of the major growth areas of TUI Group.


In 2018, TUI’s Tours & Activities division acquired Musement, a leading travel tech start-up. Following a two-year transition period, both became one fully integrated business - known as TUI Musement - combining the global reach, strong resources and high-quality in-destination service delivery of TUI, with the digital capabilities, agile working methodology and start-up mindset of Musement.

In 2020 we have been awarded the Great Place To Work Italia Certification.

Your Mission @TUI Musement

As Backend Engineer, you will be in charge of expanding, maintaining, and evolving our backend architecture. Backend is the core part of Musement's business. It is used in internal projects but also external ones.

Our main application is based on Symfony4 but on top of that, we have different API gateways written in PHP, NodeJS and GO. All our applications use MySQL as primary data store but also rely on Elasticsearch and Redis.

Musement's backend architecture embraces the "backend for frontend" pattern.
This approach allows us to easily connect our backend to a bunch of different client applications: SPA, mobile app or other backend systems.

The whole architecture is on AWS and is managed with an Infrastructure As a Code approach.

  • Strong knowledge at least of one language between PHP and GO
