Data Engineer I

United Kingdom - London


Expedia Group needs YOU!

Are you a data engineer who wants to work for a strong and creative online travel technology company? If you enjoy working in a flexible, Agile environment where your efforts to build data pipelines that have a direct impact on expanding our customer base and driving new business, then… Expedia is looking for YOU!
The team at the Expedia Group are looking for data and software development enthusiasts who are highly motivated and disciplined, to join their awesome Engineering team.
You’ll be working on some cool projects using our cutting-edge technologies…
As a data engineer in this team, you’ll work with other experienced engineers to design, build, enhance and maintain Big Data pipelines which deliver key data sets which support our Marketing as well as being used by partner managers, analysts and data scientists. We work closely with our product managers and business team members to make sure we deliver the right data, in the right way and using the right technology.

What you'll do...

You will be responsible for:
•    Writing code – lots of it. Much of our code is in Scala – scheduled using Apache Airflow - but we also use Java, HiveQL Python, Spark and whatever other tools or languages are needed. We welcome programmers of all backgrounds as long as you are keen to work with data and deliver good-quality code!
•    Making sure code deploys smoothly and correctly into our cloud environments (AWS).
•    Getting a good understanding of our data sets and the business processes and teams that they support. This includes knowledge of tools and APIs from partners including Google, and Facebook.
•    Working in an Agile team and looking for ways to continuously improve through asking for and providing feedback.
•    Sharing your technical knowledge with the team, reviewing work and providing guidance where you have seniority or experience with a specific technology.
•    Acting as a point of contact for technical issues for specific workstreams within a project.
•    Implementing product features, working with Product Owners, Data Operations teams, as well as other data engineers. Doing QA and using good practice like of checking requirements, unit testing, and code reviews to ensure these are delivered correctly.
•    Feeding into and helping implement our technical roadmap, which include managing technical debt, innovating with new technologies and approaches and helping to build up and broaden the technical skills or yourself and the rest of your team.


Who you are...
We don’t believe in skill matching against a list of buzzwords. We look for smart people with good general programming skills because we believe that exceptional developers can learn new technologies quickly and well. However, it wouldn't hurt if you have experience with some of the following (or a passion to learn them):

·       Coding in Scala (ideally including use of Airflow), Python, Java or another object-oriented language

·       Hadoop (or other “Big Data”/ distributed systems), ideally including Hive and Amazon EMR

·       Experience of using cloud services (e.g. Amazon Web Services), particularly with an “infrastructure-as-code” approach (we use Terraform and Ansible)

·       Data modelling and data warehousing

·       Scalable relational database systems such as Redshift, Teradata

·       Passionate about learning, be that about languages, tools, data sets or how they are used by the business

As a team we love to…

·       Build high-quality data pipelines using cool technology.

·       Work in an environment where elegant, clean, maintainable code is favored over messy hacks.

·       Share our knowledge with each other and learn new things.

·       Host and attend meetups and conferences

·       Make use of (and, where relevant, contribute to) a range of open-source software

·       Work with a diverse team across multiple sites around the world

·       Take advantage of our amazing travel discounts and tick some destinations off our bucket lists!

We believe that a diverse and inclusive workforce, is the most awesome workforce…
We believe in being Different. We seek new ideas, different ways of thinking, diverse backgrounds and approaches, because averages can lie and sameness is dangerous.

We’ll take your career on a journey that’s flexible and right for you, whilst recognizing and rewarding your achievements…

·       A conversation around flexible working and what is right for you is encouraged from day one/ your first conversations with

·       Competitive salaries and many growth opportunities within the wider Expedia Inc group.

·       Option to attend conferences globally and enrich the technology skills you are passionate about.

·       Cash and Stock rewards for high achievers.

·       Extensive travel rewards and discounts for all employees!
