The Role

At TravelPerk, we believe in empowering cross-functional teams of talented individuals who are accountable for and dedicated to delivering exceptional results for our customers and the company. As a Product Manager, you will be the architect of value creation by working with stakeholders, customers, and your team to identify opportunities, translate them into a product strategy, and then oversee the execution of the work, iteratively testing hypotheses and correcting course to achieve your goals.

The Pay Tribe is TravelPerk’s in-house fintech: we look after the complex infrastructure that enables millions of dollars to be transacted on our platform every day, everywhere in the world, as well as providing the tools to help both our customers and internal teams deal with money and automate accounting processes with a high level of reliability, security and accuracy.

We are looking for a Product Manager for our Accounting Automation team, to build AI-powered products and services to help finance teams make sense of travel spend, match invoices and payments, sync data between expense management and accounting platforms, and claim back VAT on travel expenses. You will be the owner of one of TravelPerk’s key value propositions, directly impacting finance teams, frequently the ultimate decision-makers in spending millions of dollars with TravelPerk.
