Senior Android Engineer
Vrbo mobile offers a suite of traveler and partner apps. The traveler apps help travelers plan, book and enjoy their dream vacation while the partner apps enable partners to seamlessly manage their vacation rental businesses. You will play a vital role in furthering our partner-facing Android app.
As an engineer of the Vrbo Partner team, you will ensure that the Android app performs well, that each code change leaves the codebase maintainable, that the visual design is meticulously up to spec and advocate that platform specific offerings of Android are used for a truly native experience.
What you'll do:
You will be taking the reins of an app with a feature set that includes:
Next gen messaging features to enable timely communication with travelers and facilitate seamless and accurate booking
Reservation management features that allow partners to view and manage the availability of their properties, as well as their guest’s bookings
Property management features that allow partners to list and manage their properties—from content to pricing—and view analytics for their vacation rental business relative to the market standard
Marketplace Feed features that ensure partners are always up to date with the most relevant, contextual information for their properties and travelers.
Key contributors on the Android partner team exhibit more than just outstanding technical prowess; they will possess uncanny product intuition, the ability to communicate effectively, and they strive to be respectful and empathetic to everyone
