Senior Director, Partner Engineering (Partner Success)

 

Expedia Group is building a travel platform. With a broad set of services, tools, the Sr Dir Partner Engineering will help our partners innovate, solve real problems, and expand to new markets. For many partners, the travel platform will meet their needs as-is. For some, unlocking the power of the Expedia Group Travel Platform will take hands-on support, design, or new development to meet a new need. Our Partner Engineering professional services team has made it their job to provide a best-in-class experience to the latter group of partners. 

 

The Sr. Director of Partner Engineering will lead our Partner Excellence, Solution Architecture and Delivery & Operations teams and set the direction for Professional Services as we finish the transformation to a platform company. 

 

The Partner Excellence team will maintain a deep understanding of the travel platform capabilities and will work closely with our partners to leverage those capabilities and provide implementation support, assess, and audit partners' security posture, and ensure the platform is working (operationally) for our partners. 

 

When we find a gap between what the travel platform offers and what our partners need, the Solution Architects will design technology solutions and definitions that build on top of the platform or extend it. They will also serve as technical experts to our sales team, helping them understand more about our partners' technical needs, and to our account management team for ongoing concerns or new ideas from our partners. 

 

The Delivery & Operations team will deliver and support any custom integrations or solutions created for partners; including end-to-end project lifecycle management, software engineering, consulting on and provisioning hosting and infrastructure, technical support in service of helping our partners evolve and maximize our partnership, and providing custom observability and operational processes.

·         Recruit, develop and grow our Partner Excellence, Solution Architecture and Delivery & Operations teams
