You will explore new technologies and approaches, build proofs-of-concept, and lead development of v1 implementations. You will also work across teams and groups, providing guidance and mentorship based on your research and wealth of experience, and collaborating on adoption of technology standards.

Partnering with the FCTS's data teams, you will take a pivotal role in building the data backbone of Expedia Group's transaction and financial platforms.

  • Explore design and technology options, demonstrate implementations, and collaborate on production code development
  • Review pull requests, and lead by example on code refactoring for readability, extensibility, and testability
  • Contribute to enterprise architecture, ensuring your designs lead to a scalable, flexible enterprise platform
  • Embrace change, always open to replacing what you built yesterday with something better today
  • Take initiative to identify the biggest platform opportunities, then dive deep to ensure we pursue them successfully

Who you are:

  • An outspoken technology leader, with an equally strong ability to listen and learn
  • Sublimely skilled coder (familiarity with Java stack and Python a plus)
  • Cloud-native thinker (helpful experience: AWS ECS, Lambda, EMR, DynamoDB, Aurora, Redshift)
  • Comfortable with microservice and data processing architectures (Docker, Kafka, Kinesis, Spark, Flink, etc.)
  • Successful history of designing and delivering mission-critical, high-volume transactional processing systems
  • Mastery of continuous delivery and automated deployments (Jenkins, AWS CloudFormation, Terraform, etc.)
  • 10+ years of software experience, with a bachelor's degree or higher in Computer Science or related discipline
