Career Check-In: Swati Sharma
Swati Sharma | Technical Program Manager III
As a Technical Program Manager (TPM) with the cruise team, I am collaborating with the Product and Engineering teams to define product roadmaps, discuss future architecture and deliver the features in a timebound manner while adhering to the agile principles and best practices.
What is your favorite part of your job that excites you the most?
I transitioned from consulting to a product set up and have been enjoying the new set of challenges – managing agile ceremonies, understanding travel domain, cross culture/geo collaboration – It is a continuous stream of learning for me.
What makes Expedia Group a great place to work?
I learnt about Expedia Group’s amazing work culture from my friends and my husband (who joined Expedia a few months back) which got me interested to be part of EG. And I experienced nothing less – EG provides a fun and healthy work environment where trust is fundamental, efforts are recognized and everyone works together to achieve well defined goals. Personal space/time are highly valued. Success or performance is not measured by the number of hours you put in.
Why would you recommend a career within EG?
EG provides various opportunities for you to explore your interest areas and to work in different career streams to have a fulfilled career. Flexible work timings enable you to lead a balanced life.
