Joe Stump helps to shape the dream team at HolidayExtras.com

Thursday, 7th April 2011

Californian web impresario Joe Stump is back at the HolidayExtras.com hub in Kent for his second stint to plan and guide the company’s groundbreaking new customer technology vision.

And the pace has moved fast since his last visit. Joe has helped guide the leadership team in building a dream team of developers with a proven ability to adapt to the constant challenges thrown up by the ever-changing technological landscape.

The team at Holidayextras.com are tasked with building a new system, using cutting edge technologies including Ruby on Rails, Node.js and Heroku. The ultimate aim is to make booking hassle free extras for every holiday – simple and fast – matching customers’ to available products.

Joe Stump said: “I’m amazed at how fast this project is moving – there really is nothing like it, nothing remotely similar, in the whole of the travel trade – and it’s a blast working with these guys.”

Damien Turner, Head of IT at HolidayExtras.com, commented: “I’m so proud of my team for embracing change and a real learning culture.”

“It’s great to be able to bounce ideas and get a steer from someone of Joe’s experience and track record. New possibilities have opened up for the team with far reaching benefits that only a well-respected web architect like Joe can bring.

“The scope is amazing: in the past we used to have to wait seven days to create a new server; now I can do it from home on my iPhone in just a few minutes.”
