Data Engineer I 516 views

Are you a data engineer who wants to work for a strong and creative online travel technology company? If you enjoy working in a flexible, Agile environment where your efforts to build data pipelines that have a direct impact on expanding their customer base and driving new business, then… Expedia is looking for YOU!
The team at the Expedia Group is looking for data and software development enthusiasts who are highly motivated and disciplined, to join their awesome Engineering team.

You’ll be working on some cool projects using their cutting-edge technologies…
As a data engineer in this team, you’ll work with other experienced engineers to design, build, enhance and maintain Big Data pipelines that deliver key data sets which support their Marketing as well as being used by partner managers, analysts, and data scientists. They work closely with their product managers and business team members to make sure they deliver the right data, in the right way and using the right technology.
What you’ll do…

You Will Be Responsible For

  • Writing code – lots of it. Much of their code is in Scala – scheduled using Apache Airflow – but they also use Java, HiveQL Python, Spark, and whatever other tools or languages are needed. They welcome programmers of all backgrounds as long as you are keen to work with data and deliver good-quality code!
  • Making sure code deploys smoothly and correctly into their cloud environments (AWS).
  • Getting a good understanding of their data sets and the business processes and teams that they support. This includes knowledge of tools and APIs from partners including Google, and Facebook.
  • Working in an Agile team and looking for ways to continuously improve through asking for and providing feedback.
  • Sharing your technical knowledge with the team, reviewing work, and providing guidance where you have seniority or experience with a specific technology.
  • Acting as a point of contact for technical issues for specific workstreams within a project.
  • Implementing product features, working with Product Owners, Data Operations teams, as well as other data engineers. Doing QA and using good practices like checking requirements, unit testing, and code reviews to ensure these are delivered correctly.
  • Feeding into and helping implement their technical roadmap, which includes managing technical debt, innovating with new technologies and approaches, and helping to build up and broaden the technical skills of yourself and the rest of your team.

Who You Are…

They don’t believe in skill matching against a list of buzzwords. They look for smart people with good general programming skills because they believe that exceptional developers can learn new technologies quickly and well. However, it wouldn’t hurt if you have experience with some of the following (or a passion to learn them):

  • Coding in Scala (ideally including use of Airflow), Python, Java, or another object-oriented language
  • Hadoop (or other “Big Data”/ distributed systems), ideally including Hive and Amazon EMR
  • Experience in using cloud services (e.g. Amazon Web Services), particularly with an “infrastructure-as-code” approach (they use Terraform and Ansible)
  • Data modeling and data warehousing
  • Scalable relational database systems such as Redshift, Teradata
  • Passionate about learning, be that about languages, tools, data sets, or how they are used by the business

As a team, they love to…

  • Build high-quality data pipelines using cool technology.
  • Work in an environment where elegant, clean, maintainable code is favored over messy hacks.
  • Share their knowledge with each other and learn new things.
  • Host and attend meetups and conferences
  • Make use of (and, where relevant, contribute to) a range of open-source software
  • Work with a diverse team across multiple sites around the world
  • Take advantage of their amazing travel discounts and tick some destinations off their bucket lists!

They believe that a diverse and inclusive workforce is the most awesome workforce…
They believe in being Different. They seek new ideas, different ways of thinking, diverse backgrounds, and approaches because averages can lie and sameness is dangerous.
