ABOUT HOPPER
At Hopper, we’re on a mission to make booking travel faster, easier, and more transparent. We are leveraging the power that comes from combining massive amounts of data and machine learning to build the world’s fastest-growing travel app -- one that enables our customers to save money and travel more. With over $235M CAD in funding from leading investors in both Canada and the US, Hopper is primed to continue its path toward becoming the go-to way to book travel as the world continues its shift to mobile.
Recognized as the fastest-growing travel app by Forbes and one of the world’s most innovative companies by Fast Company two years in a row, Hopper has been downloaded over 40 million times and has helped travelers plan over 100 million trips and counting. The app has received high praise in the form of mobile accolades such as the Webby Award for Best Travel App of 2019, the Google Play Award for Standout Startup of 2016 and Apple’s App Store Best of 2015.

  • Manage the feedback and iteration cycle with internal and external stakeholders
  • Have a deep understanding of user needs and business objectives in your agile group’s product area
  • Prioritize appropriately: Use good judgement to make appropriate tradeoffs to speed up product learning and balance competing priorities

A PERFECT CANDIDATE HAS:

  • Strong portfolio showcasing your past work and process
  • You have at least 2-4 years of experience designing modern consumer-focused products
  • Experience shipping mobile and desktop products in an agile environment
  • Demonstrated experience in both visual and interactive design
  • An up-to-date understanding of best practices and trends
  • Passion for being involved in the big picture, while fearlessly diving into the details
