Job Description

Job Title:

Group Product Manager - Flights - Ancillaries

Role Overview:

We began by taking hotel bookings online over 20 years ago and we've been shaping the travel industry ever since. Today, we're building a platform that connects all parts of the trip – from accommodation to transport, flights, tickets, tours and much more!

From our hubs in Manchester, London, Amsterdam our Trips Business Unit helps people get where they want to go, anywhere in the world. Whether customers want the freedom of a car, the convenience of a flight, the ease of a taxi or the economy of public transport, we make it all possible.

Our team is passionate about helping people travel. They see challenges as opportunities. And they’re always ready for change.

A trip usually starts with a flight. The Flights team's mission is to offer a wide selection of flights, great value for money and the easiest end-to-end booking experience. Offering the right ancillary products - such as comfort seats, extra baggage, insurance, flexible ticket options, lounge access, fast track and more - can be a deal-breaker or a deal-maker to our customers. These products are also fundamental to elevating the travel experience. While families often need extra luggage, lounge access can add extra comfort during long connections, for example.

The Group Product Manager will play a key role in evolving the value proposition of the Flights product at Booking.com, overseeing the teams dedicated to integrating new ancillary products into the portfolio and optimizing the experience of existing ones.

The role will report directly to a Product Director and be on a team with other Group Product Managers. The individual will also work closely with internal and external collaborators.

  • Robust and proven track record in building new customer facing experiences for a large scale organization
  • Previous experience leading and growing a team of product managers
  • Has excellent commercial awareness, being able to articulate the impact of the product on the business through the establishment and monitoring of key metrics
  • Knowledgeable about using customer research, quantitative data & experimentation to find the best product-market fit
  • Comfortable working with geographically distributed teams
  • Great teammate, data-driven, fast learner, passionate about product and people

Role Qualifications and Requirements:

Your experience:

  • 8+ years experience building products. Domain experience in the Flights and/or Travel industry is a plus.
  • 2+ years experience managing and leading product managers
  • Excellent communication skills, can effectively communicate with stakeholders in different roles and levels, clearly communicate strategic vision and big picture but also specific details. Great written and presentation abilities.
  • Strong organizational and project management skills, can manage multiple projects effectively themselves and through others. Experienced with agile methodologies.
  • Experienced in the different cycles of product management: build from scratch, scale and optimize.
  • Solution oriented and outcome driven.
  • Able to understand and formulate meaningful business metrics.
