Published September 6, 2022

Rome2rio is super excited to add Bo Jing to our growing team. Bo is an established product leader working with teams to build world-class digital products. He joins us from Canva, where he was a group product lead in charge of the discovery experience for the company’s design content marketplace. Prior to that, he gained considerable experience at Jora and SEEK – the Australia-based online employment marketplaces.

Bo will lead our product team to build solutions that help Rome2rio’s millions of users and he’s keen to help us to continue to deliver on our promise to find the best way to travel, no matter the transport mode.

“I look forward to collaborating with the team to continue delighting millions of customers globally as we build the world’s most trusted companion for planning travel”, he said.

Like most Rome2rio-ers, Bo’s own travels have given him insight into our users’ needs. Bo says,  “As someone who has spent countless hours researching travel routes while on holiday, I can attest to customer’s pain points that Rome2Rio solves for travellers around the world.”  His travels, including around South America, have had highs and lows – including a week  in a Bolivian hospital – however, he hasn’t been deterred.

Favourite destination

“Picking my favourite travel destination is an impossible task. It’d have to be a tie between gawking at giant turtles on the Galápagos Islands and soaking in the mesmerising landscapes on the Inca Trail.”

Where to next?

We recently welcomed a baby boy into our family and plan to take him and our 5 year old shiba inu (Japanese hunting dog) on a road trip to Kangaroo Island, South Australia over summer.
