Senior Director Transaction Services


The online travel market is a $2 trillion industry that never stands still.  Operating between Expedia’s Global Brands, Supply Offerings, and Finance Teams, FCTS is the transactional heartbeat of Expedia Group.  FCTS is composed of two key platform components – Financial Systems, primarily based on the Oracle eBusiness Suite; and the Core Transaction Platform that comprises Order and Fulfillment Orchestration, Trip Management, and Incentive Services.  Through our technology and operations infrastructure, we handle billions of dollars of bookings, collections, and payments every month.


The Senior Director, Transaction Services drives the evolution of the core transaction processing systems that includes Ordering, Fulfillment, Trip Management, a guaranteed event delivery framework, and a Technical Operations team.  This leader partners closely with other FCTS leaders, including our Senior Director of Platform Products to establish priorities for product evolution and development. 


A broad set of challenges in multiple disciplines lays ahead for FCTS, from improving Platform Quality and Scale that enables our partners to quickly deliver business innovation to optimizing a large development and engineering team.  The Senior Director Transaction Services works closely with other Expedia product and technology leaders in a highly visible role. Frequent interactions across the brands and members of the eCommerce Platform team provide great insight into the world of online travel.

  • Excellent complementary experience would be a platform company at scale

  • Ability to monitor the competitive landscape, using key data to make sounds decisions for the technology development teams / investment in key technologies
