How to Get Hired
We asked HomeAway for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
HomeAway believes in the whole vacation, where homes away from home are always the whole house, where the whole family can come together, and where the definition of family is up to you. We believe making vacation memories is a science, as is our approach to revolutionizing the vacation rental industry. If you have drive, enjoy life, have heart, are adventurous and authentic, and take working together to the next level, then you're in the right place, and we'd like to hear from you.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We value a great fit - for both parties. When you find a position at HomeAway you're interested in pursuing, think about what value you'll add and what goals you have for yourself in that role, and then find effective ways to convey that to us. Do your research, learn about the company and Life at HomeAway, and picture yourself here.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
With our business goals and growth, we are planning to hire for many departments, including ones that are just concepts today. If it has anything to do with data science, machine learning, software development, the science of product, customer advocacy and support, go to market plans, or spreading the word about HomeAway, we're probably hiring for it this year.
