Product Mgmt & Design
Our Product Design and Management teams work tirelessly to understand what our customers need and make it a reality. They’re the ones who make our deals come to life and our user experience simple and intuitive.
The Product Team at Priceline.com is seeking an enthusiastic, passionate Product Manager to help improve the underlying platform that powers our core travel experiences. This platform allows Priceline to connect its customers to some of the best travel deals in the world. Streamlining the platform so that it can get customers the exact products they need as fast as possible at the absolute lowest prices is at the core of everything we do.
The Product Manager will be based primarily in our New York City office, but will work with teams across the New York City and Norwalk, CT offices and so should expect to travel occasionally to Norwalk to coordinate with teams and stakeholders there.
Ideal candidates will have a strong customer focus and the ability to think about both the end-user along with internal and external developers who are using the Priceline platform. Candidates will need to apply lean experimentation and an MVP mindset to incrementally build new pieces of the platform while keeping a strong focus on the long term strategic direction and goals. Candidates will need a keen ability to dive into data and analyze large data sets to find trends and opportunities for improvements as well as monitoring the overall health of the platform. Experience building APIs is a strong plus.

Utilize data from multiple large, complex data sets to research, troubleshoot, diagnose, and recommend solutions to complex business and technical problems.
Work with internal and external consumers of the platform to better understand customer needs and translate those into the next set of platform innovations for your teams to build.
What We’re Looking For:
5+ years of product management experience
2+ years of technical product management experience, preferably including experience in API development
Strong analytical skills. Able to interpret data and trends, diagnose problems, and recommend action plans to resolve issues.
