Irish firm CarTrawler, the global car-rental marketplace, is looking to fill 23 vacancies this week at the World Travel Market in London, UK. The roles are for its office in Dublin City, and will include R&D, engineering and customer service positions.

CarTrawler‘s HR director Gillian French told Siliconrepublic.com the company is hoping to meet potential candidates for the roles at the World Travel Market.

Brothers Greg and Niall Turley founded CarTrawler in 2004, branching out from a family business called Argus Car Hire. The company’s headquarters are in Dublin.

In 2011, the UK private equity firm ECI Partners invested in CarTrawler, reportedly taking a 50pc stake in the company.

Greg and Niall Turley moved to non-executive positions on CarTrawler’s board of directors at the time.

The company has developed a technology platform to distribute car rental through multiple routes to market on a global basis. International partners include Virgin Australia, Emirates, Starwood Hotels, American Express, FlightCentre and Skyscanner.

CarTrawler recruits from third and fourth-level university courses in Ireland and internationally, as well as from companies such as Eircom, Google, PayPal and Vodafone.

French said the 23 positions will be in areas spanning revenue management, supplier relationship management, R&D, partner management, finance and legal affairs and customer service.

The company is also on the lookout for bilingual speakers, especially French, German, Spanish and Russian speakers.

CarTrawler delivers direct connection to more than 800 car rental agents at more than 30,000 airport and city locations in 174 countries.

Its airline partners include Hawaiian Airlines, Monarch, Virgin Australia, flydubai, South African Airways, Finnair, Malaysian Airlines, Icelandair, Norwegian, Wizz Air and Gulf Air.

CarTrawler works with Datalex and SITA who resell its technology to the airline industry.
