Do you have a passion for solving complex problems and driving big decisions using data and models? Expedia’s big data platform will be your playground. We apply state of the art techniques to large datasets in order to understand the ever-changing online travel market.
Our analytics interns usually work in analysing the impact of marketing campaigns and support in developing analytical models to estimate the effect of different business scenarios.
Here’s what Nathan, now working as a business analyst, has to say about his internship in analytics:
“I completed a Summer Internship this summer and was subsequently offered a full-time role. I work in Business Intelligence within the Hotels.com brand to increase efficiency and effectiveness across Analytics functions by enabling data driven decisions for key stakeholders. The tool I mainly use is Tableau, a data visualisation programme which can explore deeper insights into the data we have and then present the findings as a series of inter-related charts and dashboards. I also use SQL on a day to day basis and have developed web development skills since joining hotels.com.
The best thing about working for Expedia Group is that I am surrounded by experts in the fields of Data Science and Analytics, and there is always someone who is willing to help! The offices are great too, namely the roof terrace, table tennis and monthly free breakfasts/drinks! There are also opportunities to continuously learn through Expedia’s in-house Code Academy – I am currently learning Python & R. “
