Who are we?

We believe that we are better together, and at Viator we welcome you for who you are. Our workplace is for everyone, as is our people-powered platform. At Viator, we want you to bring your unique identities, abilities, and experiences, so we can collectively revolutionize travel and together find the good out there.

Come join us as an SEM/PPC Manager at Viator - the high growth travel experiences brand within the Tripadvisor organization.

We are in a very high-growth phase right now, which leads to exciting work that can have a large impact on the future success of the company. Our Paid Marketing program is world-class and you have an opportunity to join us and help us make it an ever more important piece of Viator’s successful growth story.

The Role

The performance marketing team is proud to be one of the most influential teams within Viator, responsible for getting travellers to our site whilst they are in the excitement of planning and booking things to do on their next trip. This role is for someone who is passionate about SEM/PPC, travel and wants to make a meaningful and measurable impact in the work that they are doing.

Being a manager, you will have direct influence over work and development of junior colleagues. You will be expected to lead projects throughout your team, whilst managing the day to day requirements of the channel.

We are working in a hybrid environment, so excellent communication skills are necessary whether this is over email, slack, video or face to face. The teams you will work with have varied knowledge of SEM/PPC, being able to present why you are working on something and the impact it will have will be pivotal. Decisions are data led; so being able to analyse and present meaningful data to support your theories or show the impact of your projects will be key to success in this role.

Having new ideas, being able to take market knowledge and industry trends and apply them to your work will be crucial to keep us ahead of competition. 

We work best when collaborating with like-minded teams, including; data science, analytics, engineering and product. Some of these teams are based on the east coast of the US, so you will often find that your mornings allow you to work on projects, implementation and connecting with your direct reports, while afternoons are spent engaging with other teams, discussing ideas, trends, testing and results.

The role will report to the Director of Paid Marketing and form part of the wider performance marketing team. The team is split between London, Oxford and Boston (USA). This role is focused specifically within SEM/PPC, so experience in these fields is needed. However, we recruit focused on the importance of team fit. We hire individuals who are motivated, curious, energetic, problem solvers and team focused. Showing examples of these characteristics and how you work will help your application process.

Our job is to make sure that Viator continues to be the number one tours and activities platform for travelers. The first 3 months of this role will include extensive introductions, getting to know your team, training on our systems and how the company operates. Then you will take ownership for your team as well as launching, optimising and scaling projects that give Viator a competitive advantage as we adapt to the new travel landscape.

If the above sounds like you and you meet most of the criteria below (nobody is perfect), then please apply.
