Expedia is a legacy technology company at heart known for powering the best travel brands in the world. Their commitment to technology enabled a sea of change in travel in the past twenty years, putting booking power into the hands of consumer.

 

By investing heavily in technology, Expedia was able to adapt to the mobile revolution. The company is now designing products for mobile first, then backwards engineering them for desktop. In addition, Expedia’s growth has been integral to the company’s success in the technology industry, product innovation, and global expansion. Don’t they sound like they are right up our alley as developers? We thought so too.
