ForwardKeys is an innovative travel analytics company. It was established in 2010 when the founders realised that the air reservation data used by airlines could serve every industry with an interest in global travellers. Since then, we have built an online platform through which our

clients monitor and qualify traveller flows, map global demand and forecast travel trends. Our team now comprises over 70 people and continues to grow – and we are always looking to develop new datasets and products to help our clients understand the travel landscape.

The working environment at ForwardKeys is international, challenging and flexible:

  • International because our employees come (and work) from all around the world, just like our clients.
  • Challenging is making the transition from a start-up to a bigger company and everything that entails – from developing and selling new products to seeking and seizing new opportunities.
  • Flexible means we understand that doing your job well is more important than being at the office from 9 to 6. To ensure everyone is working towards the same goals, we have biannual company weeks during which we make sure to have fun.

Our model is hybrid, you will be able to work from home, but your job will require regular trips to our Headquarter in Valencia (Spain).
