Location

Vrbo has six offices in the Austin area with a 16-story global headquarters now open in the Domain.

An Insider's view of Vrbo

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Some of us have been working together for 5+ years and have been there for each other during engagements, births, divorces…you name it. They have truly been my second family and my coworkers are the best part of coming to the office every day.

Amanda

Director, B&B Sales and Supply

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

Advertising Account Executive

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

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm on a team that's investigating the integration of react-native into our existing mobile app and my focus is primarily on bridging our existing native analytics packages into the react-native side of things. This allows us to adapt and improve based on what customers do while using our product,
