After the pandemic hit, millions of people could suddenly live and work from anywhere. This newfound flexibility has kickstarted a travel revolution. We’ve seen in our data that guests are not only traveling more flexibly, but also staying longer: - From July to September, 20% of nights booked were for stays of one month or more. - In the past year, more than 100k guests have stayed continuously in Airbnbs for at least three months. This is only the beginning. Learn more about the trends informing the travel revolution:

So I got offers at both a FAANG company (can't disclose yet) and Airbnb. The FAANG company offered higher total comp but I am thinking Airbnb stock options may be worth more in the long run. Any thoughts?

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb (Montreal, QC) in Aug 2020


    First a preliminary call with the hiring department in montreal and then 3 zoom calls with the various different leaders in the department. It was very organized and pretty casual which was nice. Did not budge on salary at all.

    They asked specifics about some documents they provide you.
