Internship: Mobile Near Field Communication Contactless Payment for Airline Loyalty ProgramsJoin us and shape the future of travel
Shaping the future of travel has always been important to us at Amadeus. Today, with technology getting smarter by the minute, that future is more exciting than ever.
We work at the heart of the global travel industry. Amadeus offers you the opportunity to learn and grow and drive your own progression in an exciting and multicultural environment.
Our people are driven by a passion for 'Where next?' If you want to shape your career and the future of travel, Amadeus is the place for you.
Amadeus is a world leader in providing IT solutions for the whole travel industry. It provides a comprehensive set of products for managing airline business, spanning from reservation to operational systems and managing both passengers and aircrafts at the airport. Within this set of applications, our department is in charge of the customer management and loyalty systems, providing the IT tools to positively influence customer behaviour.
Learning about the customer and using this knowledge in all customer interactions is today a major trend in all industries and our activities are developing quickly. We are part of the Airline IT division (running the largest data centre in Europe!): giving us access to a huge set of valuable airline customer data worldwide.
Technically, we are developing large-scale applications, in fully distributed environment (SOA, clustering…), using state of the art technologies (Linux, Oracle, “in memory’’ databases…).
The team activities are fully integrated in “agile” model, including both developers and product analysts. We are also closely working with the data centre teams and the marketing. This is a perfect opportunity to learn about different specialties in the IT industry.
Purpose of the internship is to facilitate the financial transactions between Airline Loyalty Programs, their Members and their Partner Programs. In the current state of Frequent Flyer Programs, members may face difficulties attempting to gain benefits from the different Partners affiliated with their preferred airline. Indeed, many of these Partners can be small, localised, specialised or exclusive providers with unique offers but with limited technical infrastructure preventing secure automated integration with the Loyalty Program.
The project aim is ease this integration using the advanced technology that is now commonly available through the widespread use of mobile devices and smartphones. NFC technology, adopted by the mobile payment solutions Google Wallet and Apple Pay, provides a secure and reliable manner to manage the financial transactions of members when interacting with the myriad Partners of their airlines loyalty program.
The project details will be discussed during the interview, taking into account candidate areas of interest in the scope of Secure Payment Processing, Financial Reconciliation, potential for NFC technology, Mobile Application Development or Responsive Design.
With the support of a referent engineer, the trainee will participate in:
- the analysis,
- the definition,
- the design,
- and the implementation of a working prototype.
The scope of the prototype will include the implementation of mobile applications and NFC communication as well as the full integration with the existing Loyalty System to offer a more comprehensive view of the software engineering activity, from low-level technical development to the business aspects.
The team will provide full technical support on the existing platform for the end-to-end use case, relevant data set for experimentation and access to previous studies and prototypes in this area that demonstrated the validity of this approach.
Regarding the technical environment, there is no specific prerequisite: for Amadeus standard technology, appropriate training/support will be provided and we have some flexibility on the technical stack selection.
