Software Development Engineer II - AWS at Expedia Group
We are looking for a well-rounded Software Development Engineer II to drive and implement our AWS platform strategy, and improve our platform monitoring capabilities.
This is a multi-dimensional, hands-on programming role responsible for developing new solutions in AWS (Lambda, RDS, Glue, DynamoDB, EC2, ECS, EMR, ElasticBeanstalk, S3, SecretsManager, IAM, SES, SQS, SNS), in and around Salesforce and also bug fixes on current functionality. You will need AWS experience, as well as proficiency in object-oriented programming, Python, and SQL. Salesforce (SOQL, APEX, Visualforce, Aura Components, and Lightning Web Components) experience is definitely a plus but not required as the main focus of this role is AWS development. This will, however, be an extraordinary opportunity for you to learn Salesforce from a talented Salesforce development team.
What you will be doing:
- Supporting a diverse stakeholder group in all phases of development: planning/grooming, delivery, support
- Designing, developing, debugging, and modifying components of new and existing AWS applications and supporting technologies
- Translating business requirements into logical, component-based technical designs
- Participation in daily stand-ups to provide updates and maintain transparency within the group and across business partners
- Participation in architecture and design discussions to promote adherence to development best practices
- Providing guidance to more junior team members and championing scalable solutions
- Participation in peer code reviews to drive quality across the platform
- Troubleshooting and driving resolution of bugs/issues
- Contribute technical insight to daily support issues, as needed
What you will bring:
- 5+ years previous development experience with Python and SQL
- Strong experience in AWS development and AWS tools (Lambda, RDS, Glue, DynamoDB, EC2, ECS, EMR, ElasticBeanstalk, S3, SecretsManager, IAM, SES, SQS, SNS)
- Experience in technical analysis and object oriented programming
- Ability to communicate with all levels within the organization
- Team-oriented but able to work autonomously
- Ability to work well under pressure and maintain deadlines
- Experience with Salesforce.com is a plus
Who we are:
Our mission is to revolutionize travel through the power of technology. Collectively, the Expedia, Inc. brands cover virtually every aspect of researching, planning, and booking travel, from choosing the best airplane seat, to reading personal travel reviews of hotels, to planning what to do in a destination once you arrive. Our portfolio serves both leisure and business travelers with tastes and budgets ranging from modest to luxury.
- We believe in being Different. We seek new ideas, different ways of thinking, diverse backgrounds and approaches, because averages can lie, and sameness is dangerous. Because of this belief, our norms aren't rules or universal at all corners of our company. But they are important to our identity and how we work together. Like our company, these norms will evolve.
- We are Transparent. We communicate openly and honestly, at all levels, upwards, sideways and downwards. We surface difficult issues quickly, we act, we learn.
- We organize for Speed. We seek to gather data as fast as possible, and move. Speed allows us to make mistakes and constantly improve.
- We believe in the ScientificMethod. Everyone’s ideas are equal in the face of hard data. We use data to guide but not define our actions.
- We LeadHumbly. Our leaders serve their teams. None of us has all the answers, but we are curious, and we are always looking to learn. Though our leaders take their responsibilities to our business and their teams incredibly seriously, they never take themselves too seriously.
- We act as OneTeam. We look to optimize for the greater good, not just our own, or even our own teams' interests. We are actively interested in the success of others.
