Booking.com Careers Our Horizons

Our Vision

At Booking.com, we’re working to become a one-stop solution for all travel-related needs, from package trips to flights and attractions, and beyond. This offers travelers what we like to call the ‘connected trip’ – enabling them to book every aspect of their travel experience seamlessly through our familiar, easy-to-use website or mobile app.

Whether it is helping them to find the perfect place to stay, solving for a language barrier with a restaurant in a guest’s destination, the need for local intel about the best sights and tours, or simply connecting them with the quickest way to get to the airport, travelers need more solutions to enable their ideal seamless experience. And we want to be there for our customers and our partners, making every single aspect of their individual journey easy, enjoyable and memorable.

After 25 years in the travel industry, more than ever, we are determined to make the future of travel more sustainable, more accessible, and more inclusive so that everyone can enjoy this extraordinary world as their extraordinary selves for many more years to come.

Sustainability

As a leader in travel, we believe it is our responsibility, and that of our industry, to help make sure our planet, its people, wildlife and habitats are able to thrive now and in the future.That’s why, we’ve created the Travel Sustainable programme [LINK OUT],  working with our partners to help them on their sustainability journey and provide a wider array of sustainable experiences so we can give customers more sustainable choices whenever and wherever they travel. We  know we can’t ask our partners to do what we have not done ourselves, so we’re looking at how we can reduce the footprint of our offices and data centres around the world, and continue to be carbon neutral in our operations.

At Booking.com we believe everyone should be able to experience the world as themselves, always. We strive to create a truly inclusive travel platform and experience, built for everyone, by everyone.

We believe that a diverse employee base fosters an incredibly dynamic culture that breeds broad awareness of new and different ways of thinking, opinions, ideas, philosophies and vision.

How we are organized

Accomodations

With 28 million places to stay listed on our platform, it’s no surprise that Accommodation is at the core of our business. This business unit brings together teams from product development, technology, commercial services and customer service to create a stellar user experience for travellers that unites supply and demand. This vital cross-functional engine also works across Booking Holdings brands, helping drive growth in US markets.  

Size and key locations: Big! You’ll join 7,500 colleagues located nearly everywhere in the world.

Finance

Making sure everyone gets paid is just the start for our Finance business unit. Among other things, they handle quarterly earnings reports, cash management, budgeting, procurements, forecasting and a myriad of tax-related issues for accommodation partners located around the globe. As the world becomes increasingly more digitised, the role of big data and analytics becomes ever more important to how we run our business – and the role and influence of our Finance team grows.

FinTech

With business operations in nearly every country and city on the planet, we’ve already built a truly global e-commerce company. But we’re not done yet. Can we provide additional flexibility for customers, mitigate more risk for partners, and build smarter integrations with payment networks to make it even easier for customers and partners to pay and get paid across borders and in the currency of their choice? With strong leadership, financial smarts and the payments expertise you bring to the table – yes, we can. 

Size and key locations: Growing fast! 400+ colleagues expected by 2022, primarily in Amsterdam and Shanghai.

Marketing

When you see an irresistible offer that makes you click, you probably don’t think of all the hard work that went into grabbing your attention and moving you step-by-step through a marketing funnel. Our marketing business unit that develops those funnels is a deep one. They cover the intricacies of search, metasearch and SEO, but also creative brand messaging, email marketing, PR, partnerships, and consumer research. They work together in lock step to bring great deals to customers and help our partners outperform the competition.

We want every one of our employees to be proud to work alongside us and feel supported in the growth of their careers. Indeed, our success depends on it.Without great people, our organisation can’t successfully execute on any of our plans.
