Want to help travelers plan, book and experience trips they’ll remember forever?

We at Expedia Group are growing our AI and ML capabilities to help our millions of customers navigate the increasingly complex world of travel – whether it’s to enjoy a family getaway to a local destination, experience the thrill of visiting another country, or booking a business trip to connect with co-workers or clients.

The AI and ML Core Engineering team is looking for a Senior Software Development Engineer, who will be responsible for designing and building platform capabilities that power our AI and ML ecosystem. As a senior engineer, you will be responsible for the technical direction of your project. You’ll have the opportunity to recommend and use cutting edge technologies and add to open-source projects in which we’re active. Since this is a growing team, we want you to contribute to the career development of junior developers and be an advocate for the talent on your team.

General responsibilities:

We don't need you to be equally strong in all areas, but it is important that you be comfortable with your ability to do all these things, and if you are exceptionally good at some of them we look forward to seeing you at your best.

Develop various facets of our AI/ML platform to support algorithmic features and machine learning experiments

Provide data & ML solutions for data science projects which span multiple organizations with ambiguous data definitions and varying levels of data quality

Serve as a subject matter expert by leading data modeling and ML pipelining efforts for any new components in the ML life cycle

Possess the ability to explore ambiguous and open-ended problems, create a vision, and rally others around it

Analyze and resolve production support issues in cooperation with the Operations team and other developers

Ensure that all code that your team produces is rigorously tested in an automated fashion (we encourage TDD/BDD)

Work closely with product owners to define roadmaps and backlogs

Work in an agile team and look for ways to continuously improve through asking and providing feedback

Develop secure, maintainable, scalable components as part of a wider team through pair programming and code reviews

Good ideas and solutions can come from anyone — see past hierarchy to solve problems and give voice to more junior employees

Always on the lookout for opportunities to improve developer productivity — for example, by improving build times, simplifying code, streamlining processes, or finding better communication channels

Education and professional experience guidelines:

  • Most important - a hunger to learn! We want people who are curious and eager to develop new skills
  • 5 years of software development experience including designing, building, deploying, troubleshooting, and maintaining highly scalable and fault tolerant data pipelines or micro services
  • Expertise in Java, Scala or similar object-oriented languages and/or Python or other scripting languages
  • Expertise in SQL, no SQL, data warehouse, big data processing technologies, such as AWS Data Lake, HDFS, HIVE, Spark, Qubole or similar
  • Hands-on experience with real-time steaming technologies, such as Kafka or AWS Kinesis
  • Proficiency in ML tools and technologies is a plus: TensorFlow, PyTorch, Keras, DataBricks or similar
  • Proficiency in any of these is a plus: AWS, Docker, Kubernetes or similar
  • A passion for researching new and varied technologies to solve challenging business problems by quickly developing proofs of concept
  • Experience building productive teams and collaborating with SMEs in other locations
  • Experience mentoring others and helping them reach a new level in their career
  • The ability to influence other teams and your leadership without needing to be given authority to do so
  • The ability to effectively communicate and collaborate across locations and time zones
  • Know when to ask for help, but rarely be blocked waiting for it
  • A passion to thrive in a fast-paced environment

An Insider's view of Expedia Group

What's something quirky about your company?

Everyone is obsessed with travel…Really! No matter who you are working with or run into in the halls you somehow always land on travel, where you have been, where you want to go or what is the next trip you are planning. Talk about a company with passion!

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

In today's world, when you travel, you need things at your fingertips! Imagine you pull up your phone, click a few buttons, type some messages and get the answers to your travel needs quickly. That's what my team and I do - we give customers a rich experience to chat with a virtual assistant on any device and solve their travel problems right away!

What makes someone successful on your team?

Accept whatever starting point you have and creatively work with it to organically take a feature area, the team’s culture, and cross-org relationships to the next level. Don’t just take at face value your instructions, but turn every stone to solve user problems with joy and passion. The resulting impact is a sure sign of success.

Lawrence

What are some things you learned at the company?

What got you here today, will not get you there tomorrow. I believe this applies both organizationally and professionally; in order to maintain success, you must continuously evolve, challenge yourself, and take learnings from your mistakes.
