With nearly a half-billion monthly active users, TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site! -- Our Core Experience (CX) group is in search of talented and software engineers to join our Places team (formerly Citymaps) who are now involved in working on and developing some of the most foundational elements of the TripAdvisor codebase, managing the tools and data pipeline that allow the company to make billions of dollars per year.
TripAdvisor's CX/Places team is home to some of the most innovative projects in the company, including:
LSSv2 - an “instant update” pub-sub location publisher and API that will move approved changes to the live site within seconds. Cool technologies include Redis, Kafka, Async Messaging, and In-Memory Data Stores
BPM-LMT - a next generation process management tool built on a business process management stack. (AlFresco Activiti, ElasticSearch)
Pelias - our implementation of the Open Source geo stack. We will be major contributors too! (Pelias, ElasticSearch)
Atlas - our home grown location store. A multi-year, multi-million dollar development effort to manage and clean millions of location records.
All of our projects are containerized, and use a mixture of bare-metal K8S hosting and Cloud services. Join our team and learn what it takes to serve 500 million active monthly users!

You'll work with engineering leaders at the company, participate in design and architectural discussions, and help keep the fires burning bright.
