Do you love finding low airfares, either for yourself or family and friends? Great! How would you like doing it for millions of people? We're hiring!
Why you'll love this job:
You love finding bargain airfares for yourself or friends. Maybe it's even a hobby that you'd love to get paid for.
Work at home or in our offices in New York or Boston. It's up to you. No more commuting! Work in your bunny slippers! Your pet(s) will love you!
Flexible hours, part time job that possibly could become full-time (some weekend work required).
You're working for a TripAdvisor company. Great benefits, such as fully-paid health insurance, plus dental/vision, matching 401K, 15% discounts on hotel bookings.
Competitive hourly salary.
Company-provided computer equipment (a nice big 24-inch monitor!).
Couple of things: paid training needs to take place in Boston, New York City, or the Windsor, Ontario area and you must be a resident New York State, Massachusetts or Canada to qualify (sorry, TripAdvisor hiring rules).
When we say we're hiring "Fare Analysts," it's not just a fancy name we made up. You'll actually be analyzing airfares, using your noggin and not a computer program, to see if an airfare is a "deal" or not.
