Software Engineer II, Advertising Solutions

TripAdvisor, Needham

Know better. Book better. Go better.

Advertising Solutions’ mission is simple: build products that drive revenue for TripAdvisor. Our users are looking for guidance and advice across all stages of the travel planning and in-destination experience. Their goals span from aspirational: "we’ll go anywhere, but we want a life-changing experience," to task-oriented: "help us plan the best possible trip to Belize - we love diving," to here-and-now: "we’re visiting Cairo for the first time; what’s the best way to experience the pyramids?"


As a Software Engineer on the Advertising Solutions team, you will work in partnership with Product Management and Design to deliver solutions that scale to our community, showcase our experience, and make you proud to be part of TripAdvisor.


We move quickly, iterate constantly, and are not afraid to set big goals. We value inclusion, celebrate diversity, and encourage giving. We believe we are better together, and show it in everything we do.
