Company Updates

  • COVID-19

    Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol—the first overarching standardized guidelines for cleaning and sanitization in the home sharing industry—is now available to support hosts and governments in advance of reopening communities for travel.

  • Airbnb’s mission is to create a world where anyone can belong anywhere. Discrimination and bias directly contravene our mission. While we have taken a number of steps over the last five years to address discrimination in our community and further diversify our company and community, we have yet to meet the high standards we set for ourselves.

Building at Airbnb

Airbnb is the world's largest marketplace for space, and we keep getting bigger every day. With 500 million nights booked and counting, we're constantly tackling challenges in search algorithms, payments, fraud prevention, and growth — all while maintaining a beautiful user experience. We want to build solutions to these problems that are scalable, performant, and elegant, and we're looking for talented people to help us do just that.

Learn Together

We believe that engineering is a continuous process of learning and improvement, and that the best way to learn is by getting help from your fellow engineers. All of our engineers hang out in chat rooms so that we can keep informal knowledge sharing (and meme bombing) flowing — and because coding is more fun when you do it together. We host biweekly tech talks, both internal and external, so that everyone gets a chance to become the best at their craft.

Pixelwax

That's our word for the dedication and craftsmanship we bring to our work. For us, engineering isn't just a job but a practice that we want to perfect. We aim to keep our systems modular, our code clean, and our documentation clear, and we follow the Cub Scout philosophy of leaving things better than you found it. It's not just about the code — putting the right processes and tools in place to make developers happy and efficient is important to u s because it gives us the time to focus on polishing the product.

       

Diversity and Belonging 

One of the ways we’ve levered inclusion within the office is by launching Airfinity Groups, which are employee resource groups (ERGs). These are volunteer led groups for underrepresented employees - with shared characteristics, identities and life experiences - and allies.

These groups are valuable to the workspace as they reinforce the Diversity and Belonging team’s organizational core principles - which are to create support systems and safe spaces, empower employees with professional and personal development, support recruitment with relevant diversity initiatives and build on our business of belonging anywhere - in an informal way.

    Public Policy Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Airbnb (Paris (France)).

    Interview

    J'ai passé un check RH en anglais par téléphone, puis fait un test de mise en situation avec un document à produire de chez moi en 48h, puis eu un entretien avec la manager.
    Les deux premières étapes se sont très bien passées, j'ai trouvé la RH à l'écoute de mes questions sur le poste et le test intéressant et pertinent, permettant de démontrer des compétences utiles au poste. Par contre, j'ai eu l'impression que la manager cherchait à me piéger.
