TUI Musement acts as an open platform for Tours & Activities suppliers and clients. Today TUI Musement offers over 130,000 ‘things to do’ in all major holiday and city destinations worldwide and is heavily investing into expanding its offering by connecting new suppliers. The inventory is distributed to all 21 million TUI customers, through B2B partnerships – such as the recently announced strategic partnership with Booking.com – and B2C through the Musement and TUI websites. The service was created to help travellers discover and book things to do – from museum visits to city tours, food and wine tastings, sports events and wellness activities – wherever they go, with the goal of enriching their travel experience. Previously known as TUI Destination Experiences, which included the independently operated Musement business, the new TUI Musement will create value for its suppliers and customers by rolling out a unique digital platform+ model, which combines a scalable digital platform for sourcing, producing and distributing Tours & Activities, with curated service delivery in more than 50 countries worldwide.

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

Your Mission @Musement

As Elasticsearch Engineer, you will be in charge of design, configure and optimize the way our catalog is stored in ES and how we search in it. You will be responsible for defining the way Indexes and Documents are structured and also the way we query the data. 
Musement has a catalog of more than thousands of activities in more than 10 languages. We need a fast and reliable way to search through the catalog filtering by city, availability, and all other taxonomies.
