ForwardKeys is an innovative travel analytics company. The company 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 on which our clients monitor and qualify traveller flows, map global demand, and forecast travel trends. We are now 60 people strong and growing: always looking for new datasets to develop and new products to help our clients understand the travel landscape.

Working 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 step from a start-up to a bigger company and everything that includes product development to selling them. Flexible means we understand that doing your job well is more important than being in the office from 9 to 5. To ensure alignment within the company we have biannual company weeks during which we make sure to have fun.

You will be able to work from home, but your job will require several trips to our Headquarters in Valencia (Spain).
