Head of Technology

Job description

Founded in Melbourne in 2019, reZme is a SaaS business, with a mission to help hotels and accommodation operators drive more direct bookings.

Too often, accommodation businesses are reliant on online third-party channels, where they pay up to 30% commission per booking.

Despite hotels having a desire to take more control over their guests and drive more bookings direct, existing technology solutions are unable to match the experience and features provided by the likes of Booking.com and Expedia, which results in a poor direct channel performance for most hotels.

reZme’s platform is changing this position and offering a solution which gives a hotel all the tools they need to operate a successful direct booking channel. Our products include reZme Web, reZme Book and reZme Promote. More details can be found at www.rezme.com
