Fineway: Finding Your Travelling DNA

Fineway is one of the companies which joined us for Munich Tech Job Fair on the 25th of October! Despite the event being behind us already, they’re still looking for more talented people to join their team. Check out the company interview below!

Who are the creators of your brand? What do they do in life, what are they passionate about?

Fineway was founded by Markus Bohl (CEO) and Markus Feigelbinder (COO), both passionate about travel, innovation, and data science.

What’s the story behind the creation of your company? What inspired you to start your business?

The driver for Fineway’s business model: To give people some of their valuable time back. Both founders are passionate travelers and, before any journey, struggled to allocate sufficient time to plan the travel. Because for them, traveling is not flying to the same destination and staying in the same hotel every year, but experience something completely new each and every time they spend away from home.

What’s your current view on the market you work in? What makes you feel like your brand stands out?

The conservative travel market has a lot of potential to modernize and to face new business models. With the rise of voice-based search to become the dominating traffic channel within the next 18-24 months, the stakes to target, acquire & retain travelers are re-divided. With its conversational AI, Fineway has a real first mover opportunity which we are going to leverage.

What’s the thing that you appreciate/value/cherish more about what you do as a brand?

At Fineway we work with some of the most innovative technologies. We know how to leverage the potential of data and on that basis create real experiences.

  1. Do you have a special story of something unique you did for a client? Something unusual you did as a team, something memorable you’d like to share?

Our whole business is about unique things we do for clients. Every journey they book with Fineway should be something special. It is a mix of many components and sometimes it requires to arrange that a 1.5 meter teddy bear can travel with the family.

What’s your company culture like? What is that you want to represent?

Our company culture is based on openness, trust and the excitement for new technologies. We give you the chance to leverage your potential and develop yourself at high pace.

What is your team like? How do you work?

Our team is international and highly talented. Our daily work is characterized by flat hierarchies, flexibility and transparency. We give you full responsibility for your tasks and encourage you to make the most out of it. Next to all the work we don’t forget to have fun. Fineway’s office is located right next to the Theresienwiese, the venue of the Oktoberfest…

What kind of people are you looking for? Who’s the best match for your team?

It’s a match if you’re passionate about innovation and technology. You should get excited by loads of data and have ideas how to use it.

What benefits and perks do you offer your employees? What’s the biggest plus of working for you?

Working for Fineway provides you with the opportunity to grow your skills in an inspirational, fast-paced, and challenging environment. We offer On-the-job coaching and regular, detailed feedback for your personal development.

1What are your goals and plans for the future? What’s your biggest ambition?

We believe the future of travel is not search & compare but a smart conversation to instantly create personalized trips that match your unique style & personal preferences. With our conversational AI we are ambitious to become one of the top players within the changing travel market.
