Our Experiences vertical provides customers with a collection of over 300K bookable products - experiences like glacier hikes in Alaska, guided walking tours in Lisbon, swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, and many, many more. The fast-growing user and product spaces pose a significant challenge for us: how to match users with experiences that are relevant to them, particularly in international markets where we hope to grow our footprint even further. As a Machine Learning Scientist working in this space, you will have the opportunity to apply your modeling and engineering skills to a number of different areas, but with a particular focus on sort and recommendations.

You will be working in a diverse environment where you’ll collaborate with a broad multidisciplinary team of ML scientists, analysts, software engineers, and product managers. You’ll be encouraged to take ownership of your projects and to find new opportunities and problems where machine learning could be applied to improve the business. Finally, you will also be provided the environment to grow technically and personally into a leader while contributing to the team.
