It wasn’t so long ago that booking a trip to see the Eiffel Tower, stroll down New York’s iconic Madison Avenue or feel the sand between our toes on Copacabana Beach was simply a matter of a few taps on our smartphone.
In fact, that’s what we do at Booking.com. We make it easier for everyone to experience the world. And while that world might feel a little farther away right now, we’re busy preparing for when the world is ready to travel once more.
Across our offices worldwide, we continue to innovate. To solve for some of the most complex challenges in travel and technology, and to plan for the exciting developments that lie ahead. With strategic long-term investments into what we believe the future of travel can be, we are opening up new career opportunities that will have a strong impact on our mission.
We are united in the belief that our very human desire to explore the planet’s beauty and discover more about other people and cultures will endure. The world is waiting for us. Together, we will be ready.
In order to be ready, Booking.com's Legal department is looking to welcome a Senior Managing Counsel - Flights to focus on an extremely important and developing product of ours. The successful candidate will directly support the Product teams in establishing and growing a world-class Flights product (and other travel-related products, as directed from time to time), as well as lead the assessment, interpretation and application of the law governing the sale of these products.
The successful candidate will show deep subject matter expertise in travel-related services regulation, as well as a strong commercial and product instinct that helps to apply that knowledge in practical and actionable ways. As an individual contributor, the role is a ‘hands-on’ legal advisory support role, embedded in the business and working closely with the Product and Commercial teams.
As Senior Managing Counsel - Flights, you will have a global scope, so the Lawyer in this role should equally have a global worldview, and be capable of sourcing, critiquing and managing input form a range of internal and external stakeholders, to form a view even outside of their direct experience.
This role is a critical component in the construction of a safe, compliant and scalable global Flights product, which is a critical feature of the connected trip, and therefore a vital contributor to Booking.com’s goals.
