Analytics & Data Science
We’re a data-driven organization, which makes our Analytics and Data Science teams the brains of our operation. On the cutting edge of customer and business analytics, they make sure all our decisions and innovations are based on the latest insights.
At Priceline, we use data to drive decisions and understand the business. We look for people who love data; can apply analytical functions to identify underlying patterns and structures; can think strategically to draw out big picture conclusions, correlations, and recommendations; can model behavior; and can communicate all these results clearly and using a variety of methods.
As a Business Analyst, you will use insight from Priceline’s data to guide our product vision and achieve tactical business objectives. You will do so by diving deep into our Flights business to develop a complete understanding of the Priceline Flights business processes, evaluate and optimize business processes and revenue streams, and uncover strategic opportunities. While some work will be independent, you will also work closely with our other Business Analysts. Candidates must be creative, detail oriented, and comfortable analyzing large datasets. Candidates must be able to use this data to optimize and enhance the business performance. We want someone who not only exudes enthusiasm, is intellectually curious, and is personable; but also someone with a demonstrable track record of excelling in whatever he or she is passionate about. The ideal candidate must be adept at working with cross functional teams, from airline business development managers to frontline channel owners, to communicate and implement business insights and growth strategies.
