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.

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.
