Are you interested in working with some of the best minds and making a difference in the lives of hundreds of millions of people? Are you passionate about helping Airbnb achieve our mission to create a world where anyone can belong anywhere?
Airbnb exists to create a world that is smaller, where you can go to any community and someone says, “Welcome to my home"; where home isn’t just a house, but any community to which you belong. A world where every door is unlocked and every host treats you like family. Where every city is a village and every block a community. In this world, we can become anything we want. This is the magical world of Airbnb!
Founded in 2008, Airbnb is a global travel community that offers magical end-to-end trips, including where you stay, what you do and the people you meet. Airbnb uniquely leverages technology to economically empower millions of people around the world to unlock and monetize their spaces, passions and talents to become hospitality entrepreneurs. Airbnb’s accommodation marketplace offers access to millions of places to stay in more than 191 countries, from apartments and villas to castles, treehouses and B&Bs. With Experiences, people can see a different side to a destination through unique, handcrafted activities run by locals, while a partnership with Resy provides access to the best local restaurants in selected countries. All of this is brought together in one easy-to-use and beautifully designed website and app.
Trust at Airbnb:
In 2013, Thomas Friedman wrote in the New York Times:
“Airbnb’s real innovation is not online rentals. It’s ‘trust.’ It created a framework of trust that has made tens of thousands of people comfortable renting rooms in their homes to strangers.”
Everyone at Airbnb thinks about trust, but our team obsesses over it daily. At the core of trust is safety, and thus we spend a significant amount of our time and energy keeping the community safe. The Trust team is responsible for protecting our community and platform from fraud while also ensuring our hosts, guests, homes, and experiences meet our high standards. We also think about complex topics like identity and reputation to ensure that every interaction with Airbnb helps build trust in us and our community. Trust Engineering is responsible for the technology vision and development of a complex stack that runs on every key interaction on the platform.
