Engineering Manager - Partner Tech

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to guide people, drive technical decisions and help develop our partnerships channels.

You will assume line management of a group of talented engineers based in Zurich, and together, you’ll have the chance to work on some exciting and challenging projects. Here are some examples of things we’d love to tackle next:

  • Improve our products by adding personalised recommendations to provide both relevant insights as well as allowing our partners to increase the revenue they can generate by reselling GetYourGuide product.
  • Build a brand new Registration and Onboarding process for Ambassadors.
  • Build a tool allowing partners to run an “audit” on one of their pages, automatically generating a visual report of suggested changes, including potential financial impact.
  • Increase the conversion rate of  widgets, by running experiments on the existing offering as well as exploring new widget options.
  • Build an Automatic Deep-Link Placement Tool that partners can integrate that will analyse the text, suggest, and ultimately create the highest-performing deep-links for a given page.

The team’s purpose is to help GetYourGuide's partners grow their businesses by enabling them to provide incredible experiences to their audiences.
