The Insurance Commercial, Strategy and Services (CSS) team is responsible for managing the Insurance business P&L and driving strategy for products across the Expedia Group globally. Insurance delivers millions of dollars of incremental revenue making a direct and meaningful impact to the company's bottom-line.
 

While travel is fun, inspiring, and educational, the process of shopping for your dream trip and sometimes the journey itself brings notes of stress.

  • Articulate and communicate a business opportunity based on data, observations, and analysis, and utilizing a framework that tells a comprehensive story.
  • Help define strategy and prioritize opportunities in collaboration with the product and technology teams.
  • Propose new ideas that address common travel pains and build evidence backed business cases to support those ideas.
  • Deliver opportunity sizing of product ideas by combining analytical skills as well as creative use of sources to validate assumptions.
  • Serve as the expert on the product from a pricing, availability, terms and conditions, and overall vision perspective.
  • Develop effective relationships with the extended inter-disciplinary team comprised of product management, engineering, customer support, finance and legal.
  • Balance the needs and requirements of different teams to build consensus on a common strategy.
  • Develop a keen understanding of the competitive landscape by keeping abreast of market trends.

  • Proven ability to deliver revenue growth by identifying and leading high growth initiatives.
  • Experience within consulting or strategy roles is highly preferred.
  • Proven skills in business analysis, market research, and presentation creation.
  • Experience communicating with senior leadership, influencing decisions across multiple and matrixed teams within Expedia Group.
  • Experience identifying, negotiating and partnering with external business partners preferred.

Everyone is obsessed with travel…Really! No matter who you are working with or run into in the halls you somehow always land on travel, where you have been, where you want to go or what is the next trip you are planning. Talk about a company with passion!

In today's world, when you travel, you need things at your fingertips! Imagine you pull up your phone, click a few buttons, type some messages and get the answers to your travel needs quickly.

What are some things you learned at the company?

What got you here today, will not get you there tomorrow. I believe this applies both organizationally and professionally; in order to maintain success, you must continuously evolve, challenge yourself, and take learnings from your mistakes.
