Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Airbnb is one of the world’s largest marketplaces for unique, authentic places to stay and things to do, offering over 7 million accommodations and tens of thousands of handcrafted activities, all powered by local hosts.
An economic empowerment engine, Airbnb has helped millions of hospitality entrepreneurs monetize their spaces and their passions while keeping the financial benefits of tourism in their own communities. With more than three quarters of a billion guest arrivals to date, and accessible in 62 languages across 220+ countries and regions, Airbnb promotes people-to-people connection, community and trust around the world.
Engineering technologies that bring people together in the real world is both inspiring and daunting. We’re tackling challenges in search relevance, payments, fraud prevention, discrimination, and growth—all while maintaining a beautiful experience. We love to contribute to the community, from our work on testing React components to our new Android framework.
Our mission is to create a world where anyone can belong anywhere. It’s an audacious, incredibly rewarding mission that our increasingly diverse team is dedicated to achieving. Exciting challenges lie ahead—new regions, technologies, and businesses. Guided by our four core values — champion the mission, be a host, embrace the adventure, and be a cereal entrepreneur — we’ll meet these challenges creatively and with the support of our global community. Join us!
Machine learning is helping to solve challenging, real-world problems around the world. See how Airbnb (www.airbnb.com) is using machine learning powered by TensorFlow to help categorize millions of listing photos in order to improve the guest experience, while also driving business impact.
We aspire to be a global leader in diversity and belonging – not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s core to our mission. To have the impact we want on the world, we have to start inside our own walls and make sure every employee at Airbnb feels like they belong.
