About Us

We're TravelPerk, a hyper-growth SaaS platform offering companies a one-stop-shop for booking, managing and reporting business travel.

Our aim is to revolutionise the $1.3 trillion business travel market by combining an unrivalled choice of travel options with a powerful booking and management platform and access to 24/7 customer support we’ve become the leading all-in-one travel management solution.

Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Barcelona, we’ve grown to over 1200 people in 9 offices across Europe and North America. In 2022 we became a ‘unicorn’ and in 2024 we raised $104 million in additional investment, with a total valuation of $1.4 billion.

We’ve been winning awards too. Since 2023, we’ve been voted one of the best places to work, one of the fastest-growing apps and tech companies, and a leading pioneer of business travel.

These are just some of the reasons why global brands like Wise, Red Bull, GetYourGuide, and Aesop trust us to supercharge their corporate travel.

We are TravelPerk: a scaling unicorn valued at $1.3billion that has raised over $400m since our creation in 2015.

Backed by world-class investors with portfolios including AirBnb, Stripe, Slack, Trello, Gusto, Twitter, Farfetch and Deliveroo, our team is made up of A-players from across the travel and technology industries.

Over the past few years, we’ve been named the fastest-growing SaaS startup in the world by SaaS1000 and featured as one of the hottest startups to watch by both Forbes and Wired. We’re revolutionizing the B2B corporate travel market—worth over $1.3 trillion— to connect people in real life in an enjoyable and sustainable way.

TravelPerk are innovators. During the last year we have welcomed and acquired the likes of Click Travel, NexTravel and Albatross to the team. From TravelCare, to FlexiPerk and of course GreenPerk we are shaping the future of the industry. Our team continues to emerge stronger and stronger as we adjust to the new normal—and that’s where you come in!

The Role

The TravelPerk Product Design team is looking for its next top hire for the Policy & Control squad. If you consider yourself an autonomous Senior Product Designer who has worked on SaaS products, and keeps the customer at the heart of everything you do, read on…

In TravelPerk, we work in “squads” which are small, autonomous teams made up of full-stack engineers, a Product Manager, and a Product Designer. As a Senior Product Designer, you’ll be part of a product trio that will help lead your squad but we also like to see our Designers contributing to the wider Design and Product functions.

As a Senior Product Designer working for the Policy & Control squad you’ll be in charge of offering a 7* experience to company admins looking for a tool that will make managing their business travel more efficient. Allowing them to have rules over company spend and empowering their teams to book their own travel.

This role can be based from our London or Barcelona hubs and requires you to be in the office once per week, or four times per month.

What will my day look like?

Within your squad, we are looking for you to be confident in the following:

  • Focus on UX over UI: we expect you to be really good at creating experiences. Having a Design System in place, you should have good UI skills but they won’t be your focus
  • Developing a partnership with your Product Manager to fully understand customer needs and business value, challenging each other to raise the bar for your product area
  • Be able to know when to run your own research or lean on our in-house Research team to co-ordinate usability tests, discovery sessions, or any other analysis that helps you build your experiences
  • Working with our data team to interrogate various data sources to uncover relevant quantitative insights
  • Working with our Content Design team to fine tune the message that your features are conveying
  • Ideating quickly and effectively with your squad, favouring communication and collaboration over ping-ponging via tools
  • Understanding technical constraints and opportunities through a fundamental understanding of web technologies (HTML5, CSS, JS, APIs) allowing you to communicate ideas effectively with engineers and fellow designers
  • Continuously optimizing the design process in your squad and across the wider team
  • Testing and optimizing low–high fidelity prototypes with key stakeholders and customers to iteratively validate that we are solving the right problems
  • Mentoring and supporting fellow designers, bringing your unique skill-set and continually raising the bar of the team and our products

What skills are required?

  • Strong experience working for a SaaS product
  • Experience working with Sketch / Figma and remote workshop tools like FigJam / Miro
  • Being able to design for desktop but also mobile if it’s necessary
  • Solid communication skills (verbal and written). You are comfortable presenting ideas to multiple stakeholders and articulately defending design decisions
  • Ability to influence product roadmaps working alongside Product Managers and Engineers
  • Advocating for *Suitcase* our Design System
  • Regular interaction with customers and prospects to understand the problem space
  • A positive and proactive team player
  • English language skills to a professional level, both writing and speaking

Why You’ll Love Our Team

We are a team of 30 talented Product Designers, Content Designers and Researchers. We like to think of ourselves as high-achievers, goal-oriented, and eager to learn and grow. We foster efficiency through autonomy and creativity through collaboration.

Working in the Product Design team will ensure high-quality design, strategic impact on the product and next-level GIFs 😎

In the Product Design team, you will find a strong culture of ownership, impact-over-effort and lending support to each other, there are no egos and transparency is highly valued.

We are a heterogeneous team with multiple nationalities and backgrounds, pushing for getting better, having fun and always asking why (of course).

In the next 12 months, we have the challenge to grow our team to almost double its current size, supporting every squad while also scaling our Content and Research functions.
