Career Check-in with Dominique Ross: Software Development Engineer

Meet Dominique Ross, a Software Development Engineer II based in Washington D.C. She brings a wealth of experience to the table after 6 years at Expedia Group contributing to our mission of powering global travel for everyone, everywhere. Now, let’s unpack Dominique’s journey at EG.

I did a software engineering internship during my final summer of undergrad, in 2017, with Homeaway (now Vrbo). This internship turned into a full-time position upon my graduation from Raford University with a B.S. in Computer Science.

As a young college student that didn’t have much travel experience, but had dreams of traveling the world, it sounded very exciting to join a company that was committed to making vacationing easier, more attainable and more comfortable for travelers. 6 years later and I’m still happy to be working here!

As a software development engineer, I work on a team right now that is responsible for handling the fee data that is associated with listings on (guest fees, pet fees, etc.). We are currently focusing on unifying the Vrbo fee data and the Expedia fee data under one unified model and service. It’s really cool because this work will allow the company to save a lot of money by deprecating the old legacy systems.

One of the things I truly value at EG is the supportive management structure. My one-on-one meetings have been consistently productive and encouraging, which has helped me grow in my role. Additionally, I’m excited to take advantage of EG’s tuition reimbursement program to pursue my Master’s degree. This benefit is an amazing way for the company to invest in its employees’ development.

To me, it is so apparent that EG values and prioritizes diversity in the workplace. I love working alongside so many bright and talented Expedians with diverse identities. I learn so much from them and it’s extremely encouraging be in that kind of environment everyday. I would absolutely recommend a career at EG for anyone looking to do impactful work.

We are looking for top talent in various areas such as Mobile Engineering, Software Engineering, Product and Program Management to help drive the development of our key platform capabilities, seamlessly roll out new features, and continuously raise the bar on our operational excellence and engineering practices.
