The Role

We’re looking for a creative, confident individual to join our Airline Partnerships team. On a day-to-day basis you will be the primary point of contact for multiple currently contracted airlines, and you will also pursue pipeline opportunities for new partnerships with prospective airlines.

As part of the small supply-side team responsible for supporting $500M/year in flight sales, this is an opportunity to have immediate impact in a high-growth environment. Airline sales and distribution is a somewhat specialized field so prior experience in B2C consumer travel (OTA, airline, etc) is preferred. The strongest candidates will be able to intuitively communicate Hopper’s unique approach and frame how it complements airline efforts.

In this role you will:

  • Manage the full scope of partnership for a group of currently contracted airlines, including: contract negotiation and renewals, marketing funds, service funds, ticketing operations and agency support

  • Enhance the depth of current airline partnerships by opening new points of sale, implementing incentive programs and exploring private fare offers

  • Identify opportunities with unaffiliated airlines and own the partner acquisition cycle from first contact to close

  • Work closely with the product team to ensure airline display requirements are met in the app and with the data science team to analyze and communicate partner performance

Requirements

A qualified candidate has:

  • Extensive experience doing business development for consumer travel technology or e-commerce companies

  • Been part of a startup or works best with a close-knit team and fast-paced environment

  • A penchant for data-driven decisions, able to adapt to new or changing direction based on user feedback and market demands

  • The ability to flourish with minimal guidance, be proactive, and handle uncertainty, ambiguity, and quickly evolving goal

Sound like a fit? We can’t wait to hear from you.
