Orbitz Worldwide Announces Recruiting Effort To Fill More Than 40 New Technology Positions

CHICAGO, April 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orbitz Worldwide (NYSE:OWW) employees rank it among the top 10 companies in the U.S. according to Glassdoor's fifth annual Employees' Choice Awards list, and more than 40 new technology positions are being created that will give technologists a chance to join one of the world's leading online travel companies. The Chicago-based company has kicked off a recruiting drive to fill jobs that will support key strategic initiatives such as loyalty programs, mobile design and international expansion, among others.

"We made significant investments in our global technology platform over the course of 2013, and this year we continue to invest in our future by strengthening those areas that drive our products to be the world's most rewarding places to plan and purchase travel," said Orbitz Worldwide Chief Technology Officer Roger Liew. "Glassdoor named Orbitz one of the top 10 best places to work in the U.S. based on employee reviews, and we look forward to expanding our team in Chicago to include even more of the industry's most talented technologists."

Launched in 2001, Orbitz is headquartered in Chicago and was a pioneer in the area's rapidly growing tech community. The company has since grown to incorporate global operations across North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, generating more than $11 billion in annual travel bookings and employing nearly 1,400 people worldwide – including more than 700 employees in Chicago alone. Orbitz alumni are leaders of many start-ups and established tech companies in the Chicagoland region.

The ongoing recruitment effort will add feature team leads and developers who will contribute broadly across the organization, including the loyalty, tablet web, international expansion, air features and connectivity, hotel rate and promotion, site optimization and content teams. Open positions will be posted as they become available on the Orbitz Careers page at
