Please note this role is based in Bangkok, Thailand. Our client is very keen to hear from individuals who are willing to relocate. They offer very comprehensive salary package but full relocation and visa sponsorship.

Company:

Our client is one of the world's largest and fastest growing online travel agents and is now established among the premier ecommerce companies Asia. Coming from over 60 countries, their 2,000+ person team is energetic and hyper-focused on every last detail of the internet. Despite their size, they feel like a startup. Their product owners interact with C-Level executives all day, every day and are empowered to create, measure and improve every aspect of the business with very little overhead or bureaucracy.

Role:

Experimentation is one of the core elements of this company.

The product owner (PO) drives relentless innovation required to stay ahead in an extremely dynamic and competitive industry. The PO will see the big picture and the small detail at the same time.

At the same time, he or she will understand every detail of the product from design to functionality to usability. The 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.
