Company Updates

  • Mental illness affects one in four people and is the leading cause of workplace absences. The Expedia Group Brisbane office recently became the first of our global offices to train 15 teams as Mental Health First Aiders. These responders are now equipped to understand and recognize symptoms of anxiety, depression, panic attacks and more. They also learned key skills, such as how to facilitate empathetic and curious conversations to empower individuals to seek professional help. Learn more about Mental Health First Aiders here.

Expedia Cares 

Travel is a force for good.  It connects us culturally, emotionally and physically – it opens our eyes, our minds and our hearts.  And it changes how you see your place in the world.  Expedia's employees have the chance to see amazing things and explore new communities, but they are also encouraged to make a difference.  Through Expedia Cares, they can fight against inequality in all forms, help to shift circumstance and drive change in places that need it most. 

Giving @ Work

Our commitment is about more than giving back in our communities.  It's about making a difference, and is a direct reflection of the interests and passions of our more than 22,000 employees worldwide.  To find out more about our giving efforts, check out our Expedia Cares website.


The Pillars of Expedia Cares

Matching Gifts & Volunteer Hour Match

We’re humbled by our team’s passion for individual giving and volunteering.  That’s why we honor their commitment by matching donations and the value of the time they volunteer – to reinforce their significant efforts and support the organizations they care about most.

Global & Local Volunteer Committees

Grassroots volunteer efforts contribute to the unique community cultivated at Expedia Group.  Our initiative, innovation, and compassion aren’t just reserved for work, they extend into all aspects of our lives.  That’s why many locations have employee-driven committees that source, plan and staff local volunteer opportunities, benefiting a variety of local causes.

Global Day of Caring & Global Month of Caring

This signature volunteering event is an extension of our team’s passion for giving back in their own communities.  Hosted in more than 50 countries during our Month of Giving, this event provides all Expedians the opportunity to join together, giving their time and talents to make meaningful contributions where they work and live.

Global Ambassador Program

Often called “the coolest field trip ever,” this program takes Expedians to a challenged destination, immersing them in the local culture to understand how we can help support tourism and sustainable living in the area.  The impact of these journeys is long-lasting, breaking down barriers and unveiling new possibilities for how we can impact the world together.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Expedia Group (London, England).

    Interview

    Applied through a university recruitment portal. Passed through two phone-call/Skype interview stages (the first ~30 minutes and nontechnical, the second ~1 hour and technical). Invited down to London for an in person interview (travel expenses reimbursed).

    Interviews happened concurrently with ~15 others applying for internships/graduate positions. First was a ~2 hour (or a little under) technical interview with two engineers. Comprised of whiteboard exercises and a small amount of practical programming on a provided laptop.

    This was followed by lunch and a group exercise with 3-4 of the other applicants (design and market an idea for a travel app). There was then one final interview with a team leader (fairly nontechnical).
