Do you have a passion for solving complex problems and driving big decisions using data and models? Expedia’s big data platform will be your playground. We apply state of the art techniques to large datasets in order to understand the ever-changing online travel market.

Our analytics interns usually work in analysing the impact of marketing campaigns and support in developing analytical models to estimate the effect of different business scenarios.

Here’s what Nathan, now working as a business analyst, has to say about his internship in analytics:

“I completed a Summer Internship this summer and was subsequently offered a full-time role. I work in Business Intelligence within the Hotels.com brand to increase efficiency and effectiveness across Analytics functions by enabling data driven decisions for key stakeholders. The tool I mainly use is Tableau, a data visualisation programme which can explore deeper insights into the data we have and then present the findings as a series of inter-related charts and dashboards. I also use SQL on a day to day basis and have developed web development skills since joining hotels.com.

The best thing about working for Expedia Group is that I am surrounded by experts in the fields of Data Science and Analytics, and there is always someone who is willing to help! The offices are great too, namely the roof terrace, table tennis and monthly free breakfasts/drinks! There are also opportunities to continuously learn through Expedia’s in-house Code Academy – I am currently learning Python & R. “

What you’ll do:

  • Partnering with the entire organisation, from different groups and teams in the business (Sales, Finance, Product, Customer Operations), supporting the leadership team and external partners to provide insights
  • Understand business problems, identify the key challenges,

provide/prototype solutions, and solve using statistical analysis and tools

  • Define and solve problems by using available data and

reason-based assumptions

  • Turn massive amounts of data into actionable insights to help drive

improvements for customers, for the business, and for our operations

  • Identify data sources, and correlate data across them, to develop

insights that drive operational improvements

  • Support, influence and challenge business decisions with data and

timely & insightful analyses

  • Communicate analysis findings and recommendations, both strategic

and tactical to colleagues, partners, and leadership in a clear, concise,

and influential manner

Who you are:
You’ll fit this role if you have:

  • Penultimate year of a bachelor STEM related degree, looking to apply for a placement year

  • Strong analytical mindset and numerical skills, including the ability to break down complex scenarios into constituent parameters.
  • A scientific and logical approach to problem-solving (asking the right questions and designing appropriate analyses to answer them, finding simple and practical solutions to complex problems).
  • Experience of data analysis and good technical skills (excellent Excel skills, some knowledge of SQL or of any programming language, understanding of fundamental concepts of probability and statistics).
  • Strong interpersonal skills to present the business value of analysis concisely and clearly.
  • You can learn new concepts quickly. You have a curious mindset and are keen to learn and share knowledge.
  • Strong organisational skills. You are able to perform in a high-pressure, dynamic environment. You are adaptable, flexible, and at your ease in a high level of ambiguity.
