Berlin, Germany - DreamCheaper is looking for a lead developer and a CTO.

DreamCheaper.com is a service that reduces the price of hotel reservations after(!) they've been booked. Users simply forward their booking confirmation via email to hotel@dreamcheaper.com and we continuously check across hundreds of sources if the room they booked is available cheaper anywhere. If so, we rebook it. As a result they sleep in the same room they initially booked, but pay less.
