An Insider's view of Expedia Group

How does your team reward individual success?

We love to reward our team members in multiple ways. We use a team slack “brag board” to post all of our positive partner feedback and wins on a regular basis. We also have ad-hoc competitions throughout each quarter where team members can earn time off, gift cards, lunch on the house, and many other fun prizes.

Kim

Sr. Manager, NA Partner Success

What projects are you most excited about?

As a Software Engineer, I’m excited to rebuild an old JavaScript and jQuery STAB component into a new React based component. The goal is to update this component to our new tech stack so when consuming applications move to using Catalyst based applications we can ease the integration process.

Juliana

Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Being a successful finance person means being a strong business partner and not only understanding what is happening throughout the business but also being insatiably curious about it. It’s not enough to just know math, or know the numbers; you need to know where those numbers come from, how they get there and what's driving that result.

Sharon

Sr. Director Global Finance Operations

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Talent Acquisition team is always pitching innovative ideas at our 120-day planning sessions that directly impact the company and recruitment experience. It’s amazing to see how quickly we’re able to implement new ideas every 120 days and measure the results. We’ve seen everything from employee referral reform to self-defense classes in Austin.

Marisela

Director, Global Talent Acquisition

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I was hired as a Software Engineer II and have grown my leadership and technical skills while learning how my work directly impacts our marketplace and creates network effects. My growth has included improving search performance, helping teams build distributed systems, and mentoring and coaching new engineers from our Career Exploration Program.

Trey

Staff Software Engineer
