We are a global team with representation in the United States, Mexico, Australia and India. Our Flights Shopping Platform is one of the largest in the world serving over 150 million queries a day and powering some of the strongest brands in the industry like Orbitz, Expedia, Travelocity, Wotif, Hotwire and ebookers.

We always want to “be the place travelers choose to explore and book flights for a trip” and are looking for talent to join us and build technology and experiences that power these.

 

The Air product is one of the first touch points we have with travelers in our efforts to help them with their trip across all Expedia Groups Platforms (including Expedia, Cheaptickets, Orbitz, Wotif, eBookers, Travelocity, Expedia Partner Solutions, etc.). Building the right shopping experience is foundational to driving a meaningful customer acquisition and engagement platform and is also a core driver of growth for the other businesses within the Expedia portfolio. Expedia's Air business is directly responsible for nearly 40% of visitors to our leisure sites. The Air retail product & tech team sets and executes upon the overall vision and strategy for Air business acceleration across retail, marketing, supply and customer service.

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!

Laura

Recruiter

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!

Urja

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.
