We are looking for a Principal Software Development Engineer to build our next-generation tax system at Expedia Group.

What you’ll do

  • Lead the design and implementation of transactional microservices and real-time data processing at scale
  • Explore new technologies and approaches, build proofs-of-concept, and collaborate on v1 implementations
  • Review pull requests, and lead by example on code refactoring for readability, extensibility, and testability
  • Guide engineering teams in adoption of cloud & serverless technologies, advise on good design practices, and pursue opportunities to simplify and scale
  • Contribute to enterprise architecture, ensuring your designs lead to a scalable, flexible enterprise platform 
  • Embrace change, always open to replacing what you built yesterday with something better today
  • Build a cloud-native transactional tax platform designed to become the foundation for the entire travel industry

Who you are

  • An outspoken technology leader, with an equally strong ability to listen and learn
  • Sublimely skilled coder (familiarity with Java stack a plus)
  • Cloud-native thinker (helpful experience: AWS ECS, Lambda, DynamoDB, Aurora, EMR)
  • Comfortable with microservices or data processing pipelines (Docker, Kafka, Kinesis, Spark, OpenAPI)
  • Successful history of designing and delivering mission-critical, high-volume transactional processing systems
  • Mastery of continuous delivery and automated deployments (Jenkins, AWS CloudFormation, Terraform, etc.)
  • 10+ years of software experience, with a bachelor’s degree or higher in Computer Science or related discipline
