Associate Product Manager - Traveler Experience

Viator’s mission is to bring more wonder into the world. To bring extraordinary, unexpected, and forever-memorable experiences to more people, more often, wherever they’re traveling, wherever they are. In doing so, Viator elevates thousands of businesses, large and small, along the way.

With Viator, they’ve experienced the best of the world’s oldest cities, and rediscovered their hometowns through new eyes.   They’ve faced their fears ziplining across the jungles of Costa Rica, hot air ballooning above Turkey’s Cappadocia, and trekking through the glaciers of New Zealand.  Over wine-tasting and walking tours, they’ve reunited with family and friends after COVID-enforced separations.

 

We’re the largest marketplace of our kind: a single place where travelers can book more than 300,000 tours, experiences, and activities

 

We’re used by millions of travelers to find everything from walking tours and wineries, to cooking classes and catamarans, to sailing and spelunking, to bus tours and breweries. Our hundreds of thousands of experiences are in nearly every country around the world. And our team is international, too.  We have people in Singapore, Sydney, Oxford, London, Lisbon, Reykjavik, Boston, San Francisco, and more.

Where you will be

 

 Viator is a remote-first company, seeking to provide an environment of ultimate flexibility and trust within our teams but with regular access to one of our global hubs, in this case our Oxford office. If you would like to work in the office, at home or as a hybrid between the 2 then Viator provides that flexibility. 

 

Viator’s  remote-first experience is centered around: 

 

  • Intentionality and making our time together count. For some, this will mean traveling to be with colleagues on a regular basis. For some, it will mean being in the office for specific training, development, and growth. And for others, it will mean choosing to be in the office a couple times each week to foster connection.

  • Empowerment: Entrusting teams and individuals to work together to best harmonize the personal with the professional.

  • Diversity, and recognizing that our teams and employees have different needs – location, responsibility, hours worked, and collaboration levels. Different teams and different people will take different approaches. Some of our team members will be located remotely. Some will be near our offices.

  • Trust and focusing on the quality of work above all.
