At Booking.com, data drives our decisions. Technology is at our core. And innovation is everywhere. But our company is more than datasets, lines of code or A/B tests. We’re the thrill of the first night in a new place. The excitement of the next morning. The friends you make. The journeys you take. The sights you see. And the food you sample. Through our products, partners and people, we can empower everyone to experience the world.
With over 1.6 million room nights booked every day, accommodation represents the largest share of our business to date. We are responsible for accommodation growth, with clear ownership of all marketing, product and supply related to accommodations. Our mission is to deliver the best customer experience and most varied selection of properties.
Perfecting the right formula for competitive and compelling pricing is a high priority of the accommodation business unit. That means offering attractive rates and deals globally through creating deal events, offering a compelling loyalty program, monitoring of relevant prices in the market or discounting rates with Booking.com funds. The role in question relates specifically to the discounting activities, which we are looking to reinforce with an individual who would drive hypothesis generation and testing for our conversion enhancement initiatives through high-quality analytics. This is an exciting dynamic role with potential for incredible impact.
