Product Owner, Transportation

Overview

Are you looking for a unique opportunity to work at the cutting edge of travel? Would you want to work in a rapidly growing company with some of the sharpest minds in the industry?  How about living in one of the world’s most beautiful countries, one top-rated by expats? Then Agoda is the place for you!

Agoda is an online hotel and accommodation booking website part of the Priceline Group (alongside Kayak, booking.com, rentalcars.com, and others), which is by far the largest and fastest growing travel portfolio in the world. The best part is that each brand operates independently, meaning we have the resources of a big enterprise, but the mentality of an entrepreneurial startup.

A Product Owner will see the big picture and the small detail at the same time. He or she will understand the broad needs of the business, scan the competitive landscape in which their product operates, spot trends and technical developments and update the product roadmap as needed.  At the same time, he or she will understand every detail of the product from design to functionality to usability.  They will need to understand various ecommerce metrics and concepts very well – conversion, repeat rates, ROI, site performance metrics, bounce rates, return on investment, etc.

This position is open to worldwide candidates and we will assist you with visa and relocation package, ensuring a smooth transition to working and living in Bangkok.
