Product Manager, Search

Website OpenTable

OpenTable is looking for a product lead for search.

OpenTable is a beloved consumer brand (with an NPS of 77), and one of the world’s most successful hyperlocal marketplaces. We connect with tens of thousands of restaurants and with hundreds of millions of diners every year, facilitating billions of dollars in sales.

As a product manager at OpenTable, you’ll own the product vision and roadmap for search, working closely with data science, search engineering, and our platform teams. You will have significant influence, and need to work both strategically (figuring out what we’re trying to accomplish and why) and tactically (figuring out how we’re going to accomplish the goals you’ve set).

We are looking for a person who is hungry to significantly scale a business — not just grow it .01 percent. You’ve launched successful new consumer-facing products and iterated on them. You’ve led with influence and rallied other product teams to your cause. You’ve been a force-multiplier for a large engineering team.  You’ve successfully managed the trade-offs between technical debt and new features. You’ve built products in domains where performance matters. You’re eager to learn from failures – not just from successes.


  • Product lead for search engineering and data science ranking and relevance teams
  • Quickly understand search, autocomplete, and query understanding; own product vision, strategy, and roadmap
  • Set and meet ambitious goals


  • BA/BS; graduate degree a plus, technical degree a strong plus
  • 2+ years of product management experience; experience in search, data science / machine learning, and API-heavy products a plus
  • Exceptional collaboration skills; ability to gain the respect of your design, engineering and marketing counterparts
  • Data-centricity; a deep curiosity of metrics, the ability to identify the right metrics and track and report back on impact
  • Creativity; you will have lots of fresh ideas and be hungry to test them and see the results
  • Strongly technical

Ideal candidates have:

  • Worked on a successful consumer search product, and on many parts of the product: Ranking & relevance, UX, and performance engineering
  • Worked closely with data science team building models
  • Any restaurant or hospitality experience is a plus, whether it was managing a fine dining restaurant or working as a hostess in college.
