When was the last time you were planning a business trip & really tried to save your company money? If your company allowed you to stay in a fancy hotel, would you ever volunteer to stay at an Airbnb or at a friend's house? How about flying coach instead of business class? The vast majority of employees optimize for comfort & convenience, spending at the high end of their company policy limits, because, well, why not? So how can a company get its employees to care about expenses without implementing draconian policies, creating friction & frustrating employees? How can a company motivate its employees to save?

The answer is Rocketrip. We're a NYC-based startup that rewards business travelers for cost-sensitive behavior. It's a win-win: companies save, while employees cash in with real rewards.

The Role:

We're looking for the right person to help shape some of the most important aspects of Rocketrip. You'll bridge the creative, technical, & business worlds to help define a vision & strategy to meet our company objectives & to continue making both employees & travel administrators excited about how they manage business travel.

You'll work with Rocketrippers from Engineering, Sales, Marketing, & Account Management, to name a few. It's essential that you love interfacing with customers & believe that the success of the product is tied back to how awesome we make each & every user feel. Finally, you have a bias toward action & can break down complex problems into steps that drive business outcomes.


  • Eat, sleep, & breathe the corporate travel industry, travel trends & user behaviors. Know the competition. Identify the whitespace. Become a subject matter expert.
  • Be instrumental in helping define the product vision & strategy based on multiple inputs. You will sit at the intersection of corporate strategy, customer feedback, marketplace needs, & engineering resources.
  • Work directly with the engineering / product team to drive product strategy from conceptualization through launch, creating work streams & tactics towards a strategic product roadmap.
  • Manage work-streams across the value chain from growth & client success to data analytics, customer acquisition, & core external partnerships.
  • Define & manage the product roadmap, setting expectations with all relevant stakeholders.
  • Proactively identify & resolve issues that may impair the organization's ability to meet its strategic, financial, & technical goals.
  • Leverage data/analytics to make decisions, but know how to make the call when all the data isn't there.


  • 5+ years work experience in product management of consumer or enterprise Internet products & technologies.
  • A practitioner of Agile & Lean software development methodologies & project management.
  • Knowledgeable across multiple functional areas such as product management, engineering, UI, sales, customer support, finance or marketing.
  • Prior experience in a senior product role at a product company, preferably one with both employee & administrator touch-points.
  • Strong quantitative background to support data-informed decision-making.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Travel domain expertise is definitely a nice to have.
  • BA/BS in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience.
  • Product management or design experience with a focus on software products & technologies that are SaaS and/or B2B2Cr-driven.
  • Previous experience working on product at a fast-growing startup.
  • Entrepreneurial drive & demonstrated ability to achieve stretch goals in an innovative & fast-paced environment.
  • Excellent problem-solving, organizational & analytical skills, with the ability to evolve product strategy based on user feedback, research, data, & industry trends.

Founded in 2013 & headquartered in New York City, Rocketrip is aiming to revolutionize business travel by introducing the motivation to save. We're a group of tech innovators who looked at the current state of business travel, became frustrated by the antiquated employee & employer experiences, & decided to do something big about it. Our team is focused on utilizing technology, design & data to align employee & company interests.

Rocketrip is backed by a renowned set of investors & advisors, including GV, Bessemer Venture Partners, Canaan Partners, Genacast Ventures, & Y Combinator.
