GetYourGuide Welcomes Gaurav Agarwal as New Chief Technology Officer

May 31, 2024 – BERLIN – GetYourGuide, a leading online marketplace to discover and book travel experiences, announced today the appointment of Gaurav Agarwal as its Chief Technology Officer (CTO), effective June 2024. In this role, Agarwal will lead GetYourGuide’s technical teams, including global infrastructure; data, analytics and AI;  growth; and user experience (UX). 

Agarwal brings a wealth of technical experience to GetYourGuide, having led the engineering organization at Netflix that is responsible for all aspects of user and revenue growth, including plans, pricing, payments, partner platform, and account management. Before his time at Netflix, Agarwal played a pivotal role at Meta where he was at the helm of multiple Growth Engineering teams focused on User and Advertiser Growth. He also brings an entrepreneurial mindset to his role as CTO, having co-founded a startup aimed at creating an anonymous social network.

“Tours and activities are the last sectors of travel to digitize, with estimates noting that only 30 percent of the industry is even online, despite increased consumer interest and spending in the sector," said Johannes Reck, GetYourGuide co-founder and CEO. "Under Gaurav’s leadership as GetYourGuide’s new CTO, I look forward to working with him and the team to transform the industry further in today’s digital and mobile world, enabling both iteration and innovation at scale for both travelers and supply partners,” Reck said.  

Agarwal succeeds industry veteran Udi Nir, who served as GetYourGuide CTO for six years and led instrumental infrastructure and technical changes that have enabled GetYourGuide to become one of the world’s most downloaded experience mobile apps*. 

“I look forward to joining the team at GetYourGuide at a period of growth and innovation for the entire experience industry,” said Gaurav Agarwal, CTO of GetYourGuide. “It is more important than ever to ensure we build products and platforms that enable human connection. It will be great to partner with the broader team and GetYourGuide’s 25,000+ supply partners to pioneer a future in which travel and connections are guided and powered by technology,” Agarwal added.
