Insider's spotlight

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

HomeAway has the best work-life balance out of any company I've worked for. Not only are you given plenty of vacation time, they actually encourage you to use it. Around here, we call it a "whole vacation" because you're supposed to enjoy your time away from work and return recharged.

What projects are you most 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.
