Are you interested in a chance to impact the lives of millions of people in a meaningful way and help them enjoy time away with their friends and families building memories? 

That is what we do here at Expedia Group. We are the leading online travel company simplifying the process for travelers to book flights, hotels, vacation rentals, cars, and experiences through a variety of leading travel brands. We have a passion for travel and a passion for helping the world connect through the experience of travel.  

 

The Opportunity 

Even during the weird year that is 2020 which brought us Covid, Expedia is continuing to invest in product areas like Flights, Conversation AI, Data Science, and other initiatives that have created a volume in our hiring needs! We are looking for a highly technical and customer centric technical recruiter to support Expedia’s Technology teams including Software Development, User Experience, IT Ops, Cloud, Data Science, Big Data and/or Analytics business units in a fast paced environment. This person will be responsible for hiring the technical teams that build and run Expedia’s platforms and services. You will have the opportunity to contribute to defining and optimizing recruiting processes for these groups, as well as demonstrate a high level of professionalism and customer service in a consultative manner. 

 

Your Daily Impact: 

  • As a Technical Recruiter, you will work closely with leadership from first-line managers to Vice Presidents to influence, implement and drive cutting edge recruiting strategies. 

  • Develop, promote, and act as an advocate to drive a simplified recruiting process to create a world-class candidate and manager experience. 

  • You will learn the business intricacies of a two-sided marketplace that will have an impact on revenue, business decisions, site features, and creating unique user experiences. 

  • You will recruit for roles that involve leading edge technologies which will require uncovering limited talent pools (GraphQL, Kafka, JavaScript, NodeJS, Java, Scala, Big Data, Spark Streaming, Hybrid Cloud, Real-time stream processing, and many more). 

  • You will partner with Managers and HR Business Partners to drive diversity within our tech organization. 

 

What You’re Good At: 

  • You have a bias towards action and work with a sense of urgency. 

  • Providing data & weekly updates to all of the engineering leaders you support 

  • You are able to effectively source and engage passive candidates using various external tools. 

  • You are organized and plan your work week so that you can effectively manage a requirement volume between 15 - 20 positions providing coverage across the roles. 

  • You bring a collaborative mindset to the technical recruiting team, offer ideas and finding creative solutions to help improve your craft. 

  • You are an influencer that can help guide and steer the right decisions for the business based on both experience and data. 

 

Requirements: 

  • 4+ years of technical recruiting experience in a high volume, high growth environment. 

  • You have experience working face to face with VPs, directors and managers, providing guidance, and direction to ensure a great experience for candidates and hiring teams. 

  • You can manage a large number of requisitions at once, ranging from individual contributor up to Director level roles with varying levels of complexity. 

  • You bring a source-first mentality, schedule time for searching for passive candidates and strive to find the best people in the industry. 

  • You are process driven and always look for ways to improve existing processes including documentation, collaboration with team members, and recruiting tools. 

  • You can adapt quickly to changing business needs and requirements. 

  • Ability to prioritize, stay organized, set clear expectations and drive the hiring process while delivering expert support and results. 

  • You have strong analytical skills with the ability to create, measure, and scale optimal workflow between candidates, managers, and the recruiting team.

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
