Alexander’s advice to engineering job seekers? Brush up on your knowledge of design patterns, algorithms, and data structures. HomeAway looks to hire developers that have a familiarity with coding and well-rounded knowledge is essential for the work that developers do at HomeAway. According to engineers, successful candidates usually practice beforehand—writing test programs and working on open source projects that increase their interview agility.

HomeAway uses agile development, so a daily stand-up meeting with the Development Team is an important part of Alexander's day. Alexander spends the rest of his time reviewing code, looking at current and upcoming stories being promoted, meeting with different parts of the team for triage or design reviews, and writing code.
