Sim Hyde


Senior Digital Product Manager (Contractor)


Sim grew up and continues to live in the Greater Boston area. She has a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s in Software Engineering. Prior to joining smarTours, Sim worked with both Theresa and Christine at TripAdvisor, and also worked at Wanderu, a comparison and booking site for bus and train travel. 

She joined the smarTours team in January 2021 to help us build out our online user experience, and has since also become expert in our booking engine and the ins and outs of tour operations data management. 

One of the best things about travel for Sim is learning small unexpected nuggets about the local place. Amongst her favorite travel experiences was seeing the elephants roaming free while on safari in Botswana, and going up in a hot air balloon in Canada. High on her bucket list are Machu Picchu, Egypt, and Australia. Sim loves to hike and is a personal finance geek.
