We are searching for a Head of Partner CRM, responsible for introducing and scaling CRM for all our partner channels, especially the online publisher partner segment.

GetYourGuide is busy revolutionizing the tours and activities space, fundamentally changing how travelers discover and book things to do in their destination. We’re on a journey to transform ordinary trips into extraordinary ones; developing our commercial partner channels is a critical part of this mission.

The Commercial Partnerships & Business Development team works with travel companies and publishers including the likes of EasyJet, Google, and TimeOut to name a few. Our mission is to help our partners excel in their business by better than anyone else understanding and addressing their current and latent needs. We help a fast-growing audience to better discover, plan, buy, and enjoy their travel activities. We help our partners drive new revenue while promoting GetYourGuide and distributing our inventory of tours and activities.

The partner channel is already a significant and accelerating growth driver for our overall business today. We are active in a variety of B2B segments - from working with thousands of travel agents and online publishers, local in-destination partners and suppliers to strategic partnerships with leading airlines and online travel agencies and aggregators.

In this business unit, you will be responsible for building and scaling a highly automated, yet personalised and multi-channel B2B2C CRM. The goal of this is to better engage, support and grow our existing partners business by helping them better address their customers’ needs. You own partner CRM from strategy to execution. Together with the partner segment teams you define customer journeys for target personaes across all segments, develop automated, personalised trigger-based campaigns that are delivered through our portal, email, webinars, outbound calls, video tutorials, key account managers and events. You build a partner CRM team and collaborate closely with the partner segment, marketing, data science, customer service  and tech teams. You will make a significant contribution to our partner satisfaction and overall business growth. The partnership business is one of our fastest growing channels. Yet we are only at the beginning of transforming from transactional to trusted advisor partner relationships. This is a 10x opportunity. To succeed you will have to be extremely customer and partner-centric, purpose and insights-led, and rigorously adopt a test & learn approach. You will make a significant contribution to develop GetYourGuide into the global B2B leader for tours & activities.
