Python Software Engineer

At Hotels.com ensuring that our customers find the perfect hotel is an exciting mission for our technology teams. We are looking for a Python Software Development Engineer to join our awesome team of bright minds. We are building Hotels.com's meta bidding platform (for partners like TripAdvisor, Trivago, Google etc). Our platform enables business teams, data scientists and partner managers to easily create new models, test and learn and submit data to our meta partners. You'll be able to build and continue to improve our platform using open source technology and leveraging the power of the cloud.
 

What you’ll do:

  • Write clean, efficient, thoroughly tested code, backed-up with pair programming and code reviews. Much of our code is Python, but we use all kinds of languages and frameworks.
  • Be part of an agile team that is continuously learning and improving.
  • Develop scalable and highly-performant distributed systems with everything this entails (availability, monitoring, resiliency).
  • Work with our business partners to flesh out and deliver on requirements in an agile manner.
  • Evolve development standards and practices.
  • Take architectural ownership for various critical components and systems.
  • Communicate and document solutions and design decisions.
  • Build bridges between technical teams to enable valuable collaborations.
     

We don’t believe in skill matching against a list of buzzwords…

However, we do believe in hiring smart, friendly and creative people, with excellent programming abilities, who are on a journey to mastery through craftsmanship. We believe great developers can learn new technologies quickly and effectively, but it wouldn't hurt if you have experience with some of the following (or a passion to learn them):

  • Python, Spark, Airflow, AWS, Hive, Docker.
  • Experience:
  • Python, Spark.
  • Microservice architecture, design, and standard methodologies with an eye towards scale.
  • Building and debugging highly scalable performant systems.
  • Actively contributing to Open Source Software.
     

Who you are:

You’ll fit this role if you:

  • Have an interest in building world-class, fast-growing platforms in the cloud
  • Are keen to work with and contribute to open source projects
  • Have a real passion for clean code and finding elegant solutions to problems
  • Eager to expand your knowledge and abilities in python, spark and cloud-based technologies?
     

We seek an enthusiastic, experienced and reliable engineer who enjoys getting things done. You should have good communication skills and be equally comfortable clearly explaining technical problems and solutions with analysts, engineers and product managers. We welcome your fresh ideas and approaches as we constantly aim to improve our development methodologies. Our team has experience using a wide range of cutting edge technologies and years of streaming, cloud and big data experience. We are always learning and growing, so we guarantee that you won't be bored with us!
