Manager, Software Development
Expedia Group’s Global Payments organization (EGP) is responsible for designing, building and operating a unique set of payment services for Expedia Group's brands (Expedia, Hotels.com, Orbitz, Hotwire, Travelocity, HomeAway, Egencia, the Expedia Affiliate Network, etc.), suppliers (hoteliers, airlines, rental agencies, etc.), and a variety of corporate needs. We do this accurately and at scale, processing over $80 billion payments in 55+ currencies in over 155 countries every year across diverse payment options.
Technology and innovation are at the heart of our organization. EGP offers a highly dynamic set of services that enable customers from all over the world to pay for travel in a variety of ways. Our services are the nexus of a globally distributed system that spans many organizations. Our roadmap is deep and contains several innovative programs designed to make our services fault tolerant, reduce the cost of payment processing, and improve customer experience. This includes compensating for downstream services that are not in Expedia's control. We are also looking to use cloud computing (AWS) to further solidify our infrastructure. This opportunity presents you with great technical challenges and the ability to have a tremendous business impact. Our technologies not only reduce the cost of payments, we also reduce the amount of customer wait time and improve payments resiliency when downstream processing problems arise. We provide an abundance of functional support to services in our platform, and the needs are ever-growing, as we adapt to new payment solutions and capabilities.
Development managers are expected to ‘cover a lot of bases’ in terms of staff, development, quality, and operations. In this position, you have the opportunity to lead a talented team of engineers providing the next generation of innovative payment solutions used by millions of customers across the Expedia brands worldwide. This requires strong focus on system performance, scalability, availability and maintainability of solutions.
Successful candidates have an established track record of developing and delivering complex distributed software systems, a keen technical aptitude, excellent project management and communication skills, and are driven to achieve results in a fast paced, dynamic environment.
