The length of time from application to hire varies across roles, however you can expect between 3-5 weeks. Generally, once your application has been reviewed and there is a potential match, a recruiter will contact you to conduct a phone screen. Assuming that goes well, you'll either have an online assessment next, or a technical phone screen. After that, there are onsite interviews at our offices.
Again, the process really depends on the role you're applying for, but this is a general outline of the process.

We have several locations in Austin. Depending on the team you join, you could be at Penn Field in south Austin, at the downtown office, or at the Domain.
Most job postings will include the exact location, but please don't hesitate to ask your recruiter or contact during the hiring process about which office the role you're applying for is located.

Hi,
There isn't a great way to do this at this time, unfortunately. If you have already been contacted by a recruiter, you're welcome to follow up with him/her at any point.
There are many moving parts for each role at any given time, which means that everyone finds out about their status at different points in the process. The whole process to fill a role can take 1-2 months.
Be assured - we're always working to improve the experience for all candidates, and endeavor to contact every applicant in a reasonable time.
Thanks for your question.

Hi! We do have some people who work remotely from time to time, but it's rare to hire a completely remote person for any role. Once you're in role, it depends on the department you're in, and your manager's philosophy. It's best to ask this question during the interview process for the position you're applying to.
We appreciate your question!

Tap into your network, and connect with people within the company when you can to gain an insider's view of what it's like to work at HomeAway.
Make sure your skills and expertise are a good match for the role when you're applying, and tailor your resume to the job where applicable. Remember to show metrics and key accomplishments in your resume that will translate well to your new role.
Don't be afraid to stay in touch. A weekly check-in email with your recruiter during the process is quite appropriate.
