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 Senior 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 customers can get the exact products they need as fast as possible at the absolute lowest prices is at the core of everything we do.
The Senior Product Manager will be based primarily in our Norwalk, CT office, but will work with teams across Norwalk, New York City, and Toronto offices and so should expect to travel occasionally to New York and Toronto 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.
What You’ll Do:
Lead one or more cross functional teams to develop enhancements and new features in Priceline’s platform.
Drive product development initiatives utilizing customer and competitive research, business case development, prioritization, and all phases of the software development lifecycle
Define higher level objectives and key results and translate those into stories, establish milestones, and manage the execution of projects across multiple teams
Define success metrics for new projects and track daily performance for existing products to ensure the team is moving towards defined goals.
Work with technical leadership to define the long term vision for the platform and break that down into short term, prioritized deliverables for the team to execute on.
Utilize data from multiple large, complex data sets to research, troubleshoot, diagnose, and recommend solutions to complex business and technical problems.
What We’re Looking For:
5+ years of product management experience
Previous experience in either a technical product management or an engineering role
Strong analytical skills including proficiency with multiple analytics tool sets including Splunk, Tableau, Google Analytics, and/or Tealium
Experience translating business and partner requirements into technical implementation requirements for engineering teams to execute on

Demonstrated experience setting strategic objectives on a quarterly and yearly cadence using an outcome based objective format such as OKRs
Experience creating presentation materials and presenting to a diverse array of stakeholders including engineers, business analysts, and upper management
A self-starter who is confident and able to move projects forward with little direction
