Design Program Managers (DPMs) are essential in helping our teams strategize, define, track and deliver work across Expedia’s vast portfolio.

  • Manage design reviews and communications to product teams and executive leadership 
  • Lead increasingly sophisticated projects with some supervised work on ambiguous adaptive programs 
  • Support design leadership through effective team communication, proactive problem solving, and information distribution 
  • Advocate and champion design thinking and human-centered design methodologies throughout the product development lifecycle 


Who you are: 

  • 4-6 years’ experience in Program Management, Human-centered design or related field
