Trainline sells train tickets on the Internet. Just tickets, that’s all. Nothing else, nothing more. No ads, no distractions, no huge revolution, no plans for world domination, no overblown ambitions. They do something very simple, but they do it well.

Captain Train is a real French start-up success story. Through its association in 2016 with Trainline, which name it has endorsed, the company has become Europe’s leading independent train travel platform and retailer of rail tickets.

The company is selling tickets worldwide on behalf of 86 train companies, helping our customers make more than 125,000 smarter journeys every single day in and across 24 countries. It is a one-stop shop for train travel, bringing together all major train companies onto one platform and providing our customers with a complete set of travel options. Trainline makes it easy for its customers to find the best price and book their journey.

Why joining us?

The railway market is bound to evolve. If we want to address demand and clients from many countries and cultures, we need to think ahead and anticipate their needs, as well as be on top of the evolution of the market, be it in terms of technology or market trends. Well, our strength is precisely our ability to adapt! Our collaborators are greatly encouraged to express their originality and ideas (whether they apply to the product, our work methods, communication, and so on) that they might have collected elsewhere, including during their “expatriation”!

Our offices are in Paris, at the heart of the French Silicon Valley, but our team is made up of a variety of different nationalities, who understand perfectly the markets where we offer our services.

Our goal is simple and ambitious; and so is our recruitment policy. Qualification is still important, but we give great attention to expression, and educational skills, as well as analysis and method abilities. Furthermore, when facing two identical profiles, we will give priority to the candidate who can fit in a collective logic.

What we offer:

• a competitive salary (+variable bonus)
• a very beneficial mutual fund
• Reduced train tickets
• Full coverage of transportation fares (or a “bicycle bonus”)
• Restaurant tickets
• Free fruit, coffee and tea
