Our parent company, the Booking Holdings group, owns several other premier travel brands, including Kayak, Booking.com and Rentalcars.com, making us by far the largest and fastest growing travel portfolio in the world. But in keeping with the group’s focus on entrepreneurialism, each brand operates totally independently, allowing us to conceive, implement and measure new changes in our products literally hundreds of times a day.
Experimentation is at the core of agoda business and culture. The experimentation product owner role is part of the overall PO organization, headed by the Chief of Product Officer and based in Bangkok. The PO is responsible for defining Agoda’s experimentation methods, processes and vision, as well as executing the development of products that would yield massive business benefit to the company. The PO will work across functions, from supply, marketing, to internal platforms and customer facing platforms, in order to optimize the company’s business results.
This role is based at Bangkok, Thailand.
The product owner drives relentless innovation required to stay ahead in an extremely dynamic and competitive industry. PO 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. PO will collaborate with data scientists to build world-class machine learning models. They will need to understand various ecommerce metrics and concepts across all functions very well – conversion, repeat rates, ROI, site performance metrics, bounce rates, return on investment, etc.
PO needs to be a strong communicator. PO will create and maintain a product roadmap and will be responsible for communication with all stakeholders (business heads, marketing, developers, and senior management) to ensure that Agoda’s products continue to perform at the highest possible level and serve the needs of our many customer groups.
In summary, the experimentation product owner can expect to work on the cutting edge of technology, data, algorithmic decision-making – all at a scale that very few ecommerce companies in the world today can offer.
