Senior Product Designer (f/m/x)

Comtravo - Empowering Purposeful Business Travel

As Senior Product Designer at Comtravo you will be involved in the full product development cycle, from brainstorming product innovations, to planning and participating in user testing and research sessions, to designing simple design solutions used by travelers and agents worldwide. You will work closely with product managers, engineers, researchers, designers, and other stakeholders to solve complex problems.

We are a tech-savvy team of travel professionals and customer service heroes with the common goal of simplifying business travel with an AI-based approach. We've been revolutionizing the business travel market for 6 years and are growing fast with now more than 250 colleagues, backed by top investors like Microsoft, Project A, and Creandum. 

At Comtravo, we always see challenges as opportunities and thus we see the biggest challenge for the travel industry, the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the limitations it brings, as the biggest opportunity for us. We have successfully adapted our strategy and this has resulted in the strongest growth so far in our successful company history.


So, are you ready to turn the B2B travel industry upside down?
