Software Development Engineer
Location: Rome, Italy
Start date: September 2019
At Expedia our mission is to revolutionise travel through the power of technology.
Put your software in front of millions of travellers across more than 30 countries worldwide! From the back-end supply and database functions, to new user-interfaces for our more than 140 branded travel sites, there is no shortage of technical innovation.
Expedia has a rich engineering heritage. We were born inside Microsoft during the mid 1990s on a custom C platform, long before most of the popular web platforms in use today existed. Today we use many more tools and techniques to bring our experience to life as we build services and applications that are highly scalable and available to process billions of requests serving millions of customers every day.
As a Software Developer at Expedia, you will work within an agile software delivery team developing technology that powers travel for millions of people every month. Continuously pushing the system to its limits, we work on the cutting edge to quickly implement new features in front of customers within a matter of days. Data is at the centre of everything we do; personalising the experience of our customers with near real-time decision-making. We're looking for a back-end developer to join Hotels.com's 2019 Graduate Class in Rome.
