Priceline Partner Solutions (PPS) manages the products and services that power the distribution for Priceline’s travel supply to some of the most iconic brands in the world. PPS helps millions of travelers be there for the moments that matter, by enabling them to access our great rates and inventory for hotels, flights, rental cars and vacation packages through our affiliate partner websites, APIs, and call centers.

We welcome people at the top of their game who work collaboratively, prioritize learning, and take their work seriously, but not themselves. Priceline Partner Solutions is a grown-up start-up, combining cutting-edge technology with real purpose. For us, every trip is a big deal.

Our API Team builds out high throughput, low latency APIs to connect our customers with the best travel deals in the industry.

In this role you will get to:

  • Participate in mission critical projects with direct impact on the evolution of Priceline's business 

  • Be part of a cross-functional agile team that continuously experiments, iterates and delivers on new product objectives.

  • Showcase your development skills in Clojure, PHP, and similar technologies

  • Apply your programming skills towards building low latency and high throughput services with continuous integration and automated testing.

  • Utilize your knowledge to understand our codebase, systems and business requirements to effectively make changes to our applications.

  • Effectively collaborate and engage in team efforts, speak up for what you think are the best solutions and be able to converse respectfully and compromise when necessary.

Who you are:

  • 7+ years software development experience

  • Background developing in Clojure or similar server-side languages

  • Strong grasp of SQL for composing queries and analysis

  • Knowledge of API standards like REST and GRPC 

  • Experience interfacing with third-party APIs and frameworks

  • Background in Microservices, Kubernetes, Docker and developing for the modern Cloud, specifically GCP and AWS

  • An interest in being a mentor and influencing best practices with less experienced developers.

  • Demonstrated history of living the values important to Priceline: Customer, Innovation, Team, Accountability and Trust.

  • The Right Results, the Right Way is not just a motto at Priceline; it’s a way of life. It’s therefore essential that you also meet our high standard of ethics, honesty, transparency and compliance.
