What is Payments Engineering at Airbnb?
The Payments team at Airbnb provides the financial platform to facilitate payments for all products on Airbnb. We’re a fast-growing team that has a 50+ billion dollar global footprint: We have as much volume as Venmo, 3x more currencies than PayPal, and 7x more countries supported than Stripe.
As an infrastructure engineer here, you’ll have the opportunity to build out the infrastructure that touches all the main lines of the Airbnb Payments stack, from our core payments platform to our commerce platform, financial Intelligence, and more. We’re creating and promoting shared processes, tools, and infrastructure that drive system reliability, availability, and performance. We’re responsible for making sure every transaction at Airbnb is observable across the end-to-end platform during each stage of the payment and is handled reliably.
We’re looking for people with a strong background (or interest!) in systems. We’d love to hear from you whether you’re a seasoned systems developer, or whether you’ve just learned you might like working with databases.
