TravelNest

Senior Product Manager

About us

TravelNest is an Edinburgh founded travel-tech startup. We help Owners of holiday vacation rental properties maximise their performance in a global Guest market. Today with our platform a Host can upload their property details once and be advertised for bookings across 30+ top travel sites including Airbnb, Booking.com, and Expedia.

Our ambition is to become the place a Host markets and manages their property. Providing everything from channel listings, to operational services, to facilitating direct bookings. A “super app” for vacation rental owners.

We believe it’s impossible to succeed in our ambitions without strong Product Management. Considering our plans to span across multiple individual product verticals to provide a compound and synergistic experience, maintaining a cohesive and pleasant to use product suite is going to be a fun challenge.

Our team is currently working remotely due to Covid 19. We have recently hired fully remote employees throughout the UK and as we scale we endeavor to have a hybrid remote working environment.

  • You’re pragmatic, favoring narrow scope and frequent iteration
  • Customer-centric, you want to solve real problems for real people
  • You have an extensive toolkit for product discovery knowing when to apply them and how to coach your team in their use
