With a presence in 44 markets, the company has a human team of over 1,700 professionals. eDreams ODIGEO is listed in the Spanish Stock Market. Because we are growing rapidly globally, we are covering more and more regions. As a result, we are culturally diverse, with more than 50 different nationalities represented throughout the group. One of eDreams ODIGEO’s key benefits is the opportunity to travel or relocate around the world – employees can move between different functions and locations. And we use this as a tool for individual and organizational development.
