User Experience Engineer II

Every second of every day, Expedia sends travelers on a trip. We sell enough tickets to fill nearly six hundred 737 airplanes every day, and our mobile apps have been downloaded more than 10 million times across 180 countries. We work in a fast-paced environment to keep up with the changing travel landscape. The opportunities to inspire travel for the global customer are endless.

Our Air team wants you to bring your technical skills to our agile environment as we move from revolutionizing the web to redefining the mobile travel experience. From the back-end supply and database functions, to new user-interfaces for our more than 140 branded travel sites, there is no shortage of technical innovation.

What's in it for you? Walking away from work each day knowing you truly made an impact.

  • Build with quality, performance, scalability, and resiliency as requirements for success.

  • Collaborate with user experience designers, product managers, architects and peer engineers across the company.

  • Participate in code reviews and advocate for the best coding practices and principles.

Who you are:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience required.

  • Strong coding skills in JavaScript, specifically ReactJS or an equivalent framework.

  • Excellent communicator and can explain technical details and challenges.

  • 1-2 years of professional software development experience across multiple technologies, languages and frameworks.

  • Sense of accountability and commitment to continuous improvement.

  • Experience with GraphQL, Java or Kotlin is a huge plus.
