Title: Software Engineer
Company: Orbitz Worldwide
Contact: Michelle Boryca <orbitztalent@xxxxxxxxxx> 312.260.2432
Hiring for: Full time
Description:
Orbitz Worldwide is a leading online travel and technology company, but
we didn't need to tell you that--that's why you want to work for us,
right?

From mobile apps and sites, to social media, to migrating all of our
brands onto one technology platform so that when one brand makes an
enhancement, all brands benefit--we're leading the way in travel
technology.
You did all the class work; you built a web application for your
professor and knocked it out of the park. Now you want to do more, see
more and build more! You want to test your skills on a distributed
system, manage concurrency on a site that generates more traffic than
you've ever dreamt of, support all languages all the time, and you're
interested in learning from some battle tested veterans. You want to
test your skills against the best because you know that's the best way
to learn.

If you're as passionate about travel as you are about technology, and
want to work with the best in the biz, this is the place for you. A high
degree of responsibility and accountability for decisions made are key
aspects to this role. So is helping yourself to free cereal in the
morning.
