    Senior Android Engineer

     

    Vrbo mobile offers a suite of traveler and partner apps. The traveler apps help travelers plan, book and enjoy their dream vacation while the partner apps enable partners to seamlessly manage their vacation rental businesses. You will play a vital role in furthering our partner-facing Android app.

     

    As an engineer of the Vrbo Partner team, you will ensure that the Android app performs well, that each code change leaves the codebase maintainable, that the visual design is meticulously up to spec and advocate that platform specific offerings of Android are used for a truly native experience.


    What you'll do:

    You will be taking the reins of an app with a feature set that includes:

    • Next gen messaging features to enable timely communication with travelers and facilitate seamless and accurate booking.

    • Reservation management features that allow partners to view and manage the availability of their properties, as well as their guest’s bookings.

    • Property management features that allow partners to list and manage their properties—from content to pricing—and view analytics for their vacation rental business relative to the market standard.

    • Marketplace Feed features that ensure partners are always up to date with the most relevant, contextual information for their properties and travelers.

    • Key contributors on the Android partner team exhibit more than just outstanding technical prowess; they will possess uncanny product intuition, the ability to communicate effectively, and they strive to be respectful and empathetic to everyone.

    • Espresso

    • RxJava

    • AutoValue

    • Retrofit

    • Dagger

    • Kotlin

    • Firebase

    • Sqlbrite

    • OkHttp

    • GraphQL

     

    Who you are:

    You will love this role if you’re looking for an environment:

    • That challenges you to think deeply about software architectural choices

    • That encourages you to invest time into your craft and self-improvement, including time for reading books and attending conferences

    • You’ll have the opportunity to influence the tools we utilize

    • Where UX design isn’t an afterthought

    • Where informed risk-taking is encouraged

    • Where processes exist only to help the team progress

    • Where you have a tangible opportunity to impact people’s lives and businesses in a positive way

    • Where diversity is valued, where empathy is offered, and where an individual’s needs are treated with the utmost respect


    Requirements:

    • At least five years of experience developing Android apps

    • Experience shipping Android apps to hundreds of thousands of customers

    • Ability to collaborate and drive for results in a complex working environment

     

    Benefits & perks:

    • Competitive health and insurance benefits

    • Competitive salary

    • Annual target bonus or commission

    • Parental leave for up to 20 weeks (dependent on eligibility)

    • Paid vacation and sick time

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.

Staff Software Engineer
