Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Hopper is a mobile application that uses big data to predict and analyse airfare and accommodation prices, delivering savings to users. The company was created to make booking travel faster, easier, and more transparent by leveraging the power that comes from combining large amounts of data with machine learning.

As well as its booking platform, the company also has a B2B offering called HTS (Hopper Technology Solutions), which enables travel providers to integrate Hopper's travel, fintech and eCommerce products. Major partners of this initiative include Marriott, Kayak and Capital One.

Lately, the company has focussed on innovation and international expansion, with the intent to grow its operating margins. It has not been unaffected by the economic landscape, and made a round of lay-offs in 2023, although this appears to be part of a wider move towards profitability rather than a sign of trouble.

Company values

  • Dive Deep. Leaders exhibit this principle by operating at all levels, staying immersed in the details, gathering data and employing first-hand knowledge while staying skeptical of any assumptions. It’s through diving deep that they earn the trust of others and the freedom to take real ownership of our work
  • Bias for Action. Leaders deliver results, move fast and simplify problems that others find complex. Speed matters in business and most decisions are reversible. We can almost always learn more through action than through analysis. Leaders do things; they don’t just talk about things
  • Take Ownership. Leaders are owners; not managers. They think long-term, believe no task is beneath them and act on behalf of the entire company. They are vocally self critical and benchmark themselves and their teams against the best
  • Do the Right Thing. There are two parts to this leadership principle. The first is having the judgment to identify the right thing for the business and then doing it, most of the time. It’s important for leaders to be right a lot. The second part is taking a long-term view of what’s right for the business and our customers and acting only with the best intentions. Good judgment + good intentions = great leader
