Product Analytics Manager, Search & Discovery

 

Are you excited by the opportunity to pioneer the future of travel? Do you want to redefine the way people Search and Discover new travel experiences? At Expedia, we believe that travel brings the world together, and we are passionate about the possibilities!

Travel is so much more than simply reaching your destination. Along your journey, you will make an immediate impact on re-imagining travel by gleaning insightful recommendations that drive improvements in a way that serves our goal to bring the world within reach. From collaborating with internal clients and influencing business decisions, to A/B testing hypotheses, there is no shortage of opportunities for technical innovation at Expedia Group – the sky’s the limit!

 

Modernizing our Search Platform is a high-visibility and accelerated capability in the company. To facilitate this, we are seeking out a highly motivated individual to partner with the Search and Discovery team and help build scalable products that optimize multiple objective functions catering to the traveler, travel partners, and Expedia Group. This person would be the specialist on search data, search experimentation, and will provide meaningful insights to improve the search experience.

 

Individuals from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. We take pride in our inclusive culture, that celebrates unique perspectives. Our brands are global and multicultural - we want to reflect that inside our walls.

 

What You'll Do:

  • Define, drive, and own the analysis, measurement, and evaluation of product features, A/B tests, and performance metrics across the Search Platform, which is used by different brands within Expedia Group.

  • Identify and gain expertise on new and existing data sources that can be used to build a holistic view of the performance of Search Product features as they are deployed universally across Expedia Group.

  • Lead efforts on A/B testing, statistical testing, experimentation design, and the meticulous application of the scientific method to ensure highly informed and objective business decisions.

  • Exploratory analysis to find opportunities to reduce friction in Search experience and effectively improve Search performance metrics.

  • Challenge business owners to think differently about how they digest and use the information to make informed decisions.

  • Work with Product, Technical, and UX Teams across brands to drive desired outcomes.

  • Collaborate across all Product Analytics teams on the development of common Group-wide data assets, tools and methodologies.

 

Who You Are:

  • 4+ years of data analytics experience in a business context. Prior experience of working with multiple stakeholders preferred.

  • Excellent logical thinking, a very strong background in a quantitative field such as mathematics, physics, engineering, operations research, data science or similar, and a scientific approach to problem-solving (i.e. ability to ask the right questions and design appropriate analyses to answer them).

  • You have that curious streak - want to investigate that data point, find that insight, understand how that works, and find the root cause behind abnormal patterns in our data.

  • Expertise in multivariate hypothesis testing, conversion rate optimization, and statistical experimentation techniques. Expertise in web analytics using tools such as Adobe Analytics or Google Analytics.

  • Deep experience with large datasets and proficient in SQL and another programming language (e.g. R, Python, PySpark, Scala).

  • Expertise of visualization tools (e.g. Tableau, Qlik, Power BI).

  • Understanding of advanced statistical/predictive modeling, operational research, and optimization techniques highly preferred.

  • Ability to communicate sophisticated concepts concisely and clearly to senior-level executives. Ability to perform in a fast-paced environment and be comfortable with ambiguity. A sharp focus on results and strong attention to detail.

An Insider's view of Expedia Group

What's something quirky about your company?

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!

Laura

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

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. That's what my team and I do - we give customers a rich experience to chat with a virtual assistant on any device and solve their travel problems right away!

What makes someone successful on your team?

Accept whatever starting point you have and creatively work with it to organically take a feature area, the team’s culture, and cross-org relationships to the next level. Don’t just take at face value your instructions, but turn every stone to solve user problems with joy and passion. The resulting impact is a sure sign of success.

Lawrence

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.
