Travel giant wants to hire 500 people and the priority is in Porto

Travel giant wants to hire 500 people and the priority is in Porto
Porto. · 31 Mar 2022
eDreams Odigeo continues its growth process and plans to hire 500 professionals over the next three years. With a technology centre operating in Porto's downtown, the Spanish online travel giant assumes the city is its priority for growth.

In a statement, the agency confirms that it intends to "increase its global workforce by 50%" and stresses that the centre in Porto, opened in October last year, will be, along with the similar space in Milan, the focus of the growth strategy.

The first phase of this recruitment will be launched later this year and envisages the hiring of 200 people to strengthen the technology, product and innovation teams and thus "enable the company to further develop its proprietary technology platform and the wide range of travel products and services it offers".

"To maintain our solid growth," says Dana Dunne, CEO of eDreams Odigeo, "we are looking for the best international talent to help us revolutionize the market and continue to drive technological innovation in the e-commerce sector."

When the technological centre was inaugurated in Porto, Dana Dunne was already looking to the city as "a strategic location for attracting the best talent Europe has to offer". The Spanish company landed in Porto in 2020.

Besides being the largest online travel company, owner of 261 websites and travel-related applications, eDreams Odigeo is one of Europe's largest e-commerce companies, resulting from the merger in 2011 of eDreams and GO Voyagese agencies, and the acquisition of Opodo.

With over 17 million annual customers across 45 markets and listed on the Madrid Stock Exchange, it is the creator of the world's first personalised travel subscription service, Prime, which, according to the company, "has grown 182% and surpassed 2.4 million members" in the last 12 months.

"We are on an exciting path to transform our company and reinvent the consumer travel experience," believes eDreams Odigeo.
