Internship: Versioning As A ServiceJoin 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.
Our team delivers solutions for managing the configuration of various Amadeus products through web based applications: e-commerce Site Manager and the new Amadeus Configuration Platform. Composed of various developers profiles, our team plays with a wide variety of different technologies (backend, frontend, web UIs) and a highly composite landscape.
Used both by Amadeus customers (airlines, ground handlers, travel agents, etc.) and internal actors (developers, product managers, implementation teams, support teams) our configuration solutions are positioned at a central place and give a great opportunity to get a broad view of technologies and solutions offered by Amadeus in the area of IT for travel and tourism.
Any modern configuration system or data management solution proposes a history feature allowing the user to view a previous state (i.e. see the 'past') and possibly get back to it (i.e. revert to a previous state). Such feature is usually implemented with a versioning system, such as Git for instance.
Unfortunately some of the existing applications in Amadeus cannot easily implement a versioning system because of the various problematics it implies (development cost, storage definition and management, operations, etc.).
The goal of this internship is to propose a shared solution for managing the history and the versioning of data, i.e. introduce 'Versionning As a Service' for Amadeus applications.
The trainee will define and implement a REST web service application to expose services that can be used by any solution to store a version of its data, and retrieve a former version of it via a simple web service call. The enabling of branches usage can also be considered.
The purpose of the internship is to help the team to build a prototype of a REST web service application.
A generic UI for browsing the versioned data can also be considered if time permits.
The trainee will participate in following activities:
· Study what exists in Amadeus for storing versioned data for applications
· Evaluate the evolution of some existing solutions vs. building a new one
· Study how to store versioned data for *many* application (i.e. how to scale on big data storage, possibly using NoSQL solutions)
· Participate in designing a REST web service API for storing/retrieving versioned data
· Help the team to implement a prototype in Java or C++
· Showcase the prototype to stakeholders and to applications who would like to use this solution
· Unix/Linux knowledge is required
· Programming Languages:
· Java or C++ required
· Any scripting language is a plus
Personal required skills
· Innovative and aiming at quality
· Good development and analysis skills
· Good communication
· Good level of English
· Team player
