You bridge the technical and the commercial worlds as you design experiences that our customers love.

  • Use excellent judgment in prioritizing between focusing on existing versus new customers and between features, architectural improvements and operational excellence
  • Stay on top of customer preferences, technology trends, and market demand
  • Lead the organization through change, evolution, and growth; the right leader will evolve and scale the organization along with the business

 

Who you are:  

  • Significant and validated industry experience in leading product management teams

  • Previous success leading the complete roadmap development, ownership, and execution
  • Experience driving a program which is a complex portfolio of Product, Tech/Engineering and Operations initiatives

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!

Urja

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.
