We are the leading online travel company simplifying the process for travelers to book flights, hotels, vacation rentals, cars, and experiences through a variety of leading travel brands. We have a passion for travel and a passion for connecting the world through the experience of travel.

Even during the weird year that is 2020 which brought us Covid, Expedia is continuing to invest in product areas like Flights, Conversation AI, Data Science, and other initiatives that have created a volume in our hiring needs! We are looking for a highly technical and customer centric technical recruiter to support Expedia’s Technology teams including Software Development, User Experience, IT Ops, Cloud, Data Science, Big Data and/or Analytics business units in a fast paced environment.

  • You can manage a large number of requisitions at once, ranging from individual contributor up to Director level roles with varying levels of complexity
  • You bring a source-first mentality, schedule time for searching for passive candidates and strive to find the best people in the industry
  • You are process driven and always look for ways to improve existing processes including documentation, collaboration with team members, and recruiting tools
  • You can adapt quickly to changing business needs and requirements
