The Expedia family has a purpose which is every single day our goal is to help millions of travelers find that perfect destination, perfect accommodation, or perfect activity to make their trip...perfect. Our mission is to revolution travel through technology. Our team is responsible for extracting and producing information that enables this. We do this by working with massive data sets, and extracting meaningful information that ultimately helps customers get what they want, at the best possible prices.

What makes us Expedia? Our cultural norms:

We believe in being Different. We seek new ideas, different ways of thinking, diverse backgrounds and approaches, because averages can lie and sameness is dangerous. Because of this belief, our norms aren't rules or universal at all corners of our company. But they are important to our identity and how we work together. Like our company, these norms will evolve.

We are Transparent. We communicate openly and honestly, at all levels, upwards, sideways and downwards. We surface difficult issues quickly, we act, we learn.

We organize for Speed. We seek to gather data as fast as possible, and move. Speed allows us to make mistakes and constantly improve.

We believe in the Scientific Method. Everyone's ideas are equal in the face of hard data. We use data to guide but not define our actions.

We Lead Humbly. Our leaders serve their teams. None of us has all of the answers, but we are curious and we are always looking to learn. Though our leaders take their responsibilities to our business and their teams incredibly seriously, they never take themselves too seriously.

We act as One Team. We look to optimize for the greater good, not just our own, or even our own teams' interests. We are actively interested in the success of others.
