About Loco2

Our Mission

Loco2's mission is to make booking trains anywhere in Europe as easy and affordable as possible, from epic international adventures to everyday local commutes. Our booking coverage is unrivalled and growing.

We’ve been selling tickets since 2012 (read our full story here), and we’re growing rapidly as the business matures. Our goal is to scale effectively whilst continuing to delight our users, so we're proud to have a Trustpilot rating of 9.3 out of 10 after 23,000 reviews

Our Values

At Loco2 we care deeply about building an inclusive, open and supportive work environment. We behave with respect for people and the planet.

We're a small, passionate and cosmopolitan team, with a healthy remote-first and an office in London. Our success is built on trust, empathy and shared knowledge, with our users at the centre of what we do. Working at Loco2 is challenging and involves tackling hard problems alongside a great group of people with the capacity to solve them.

How we Hire

We are particularly interested in candidates from diverse backgrounds that share our values, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.

  • When we get in touch, we'll first ask you to answer a few questions by email.
  • If we like what we see, you'll be asked to complete a programming challenge. We deliberately anonymise responses to this task to mitigate any inherent biases in this regard.
  • If you impress us, we'll invite you to an interview held over webchat. We'll usually let you know the outcome within a couple of days.

Our emphasis is on finding somebody with demonstrable skills rather than somebody who is good at self-marketing. This process helps us focus on that.
