Partner:Connect is a team of consultants with the purpose of helping our affiliates to improve the booking experience for customers.
In my role as Head of Optimisation Strategy, I am working globally on improving the connection of affiliates to the EAN API, their geographical resolution and their content import.
Myself and my team members interact with engineering departmens up to a CTO level in improving technical and content integration, improving searchability and conversion.
Working for a travel company comes with some major benefits. Travel becomes easier. There are only a few free weeks during the year, and I spend them usually traveling to one country or the other.
One of my most favourite hobbies is rock climbing and I am traveling to different locations to climb indoor and outdoors.
While working as a technical consultant in my dayjob, sometimes opportunities or ideas come up that either add to this role or are ideas that I am checking if they can be realised:
Server based image resizing as a service. Part of the objective for this project was to take any image and resize it on any smaller size. If a larger image than the original image, only the original size will be returned.
