Data Scientist - Analytics, People Analytics

Airbnb is a fast-growing company, nearly doubling our workforce in the past two years. Such dynamic growth raises important questions, including how to identify the best recruiting strategies; how to keep employees engaged and happy; how to hire, promote, and retain a demographically diverse workforce; and how to maintain our unique culture while scaling rapidly. While we have a lot of data to bring to bear, information is only as valuable as it is understood by decision-makers. We are looking for a talented analyst who can work cross-functionally with Data Scientists and HR business partners to translate insights to action.

The ideal candidate has an eye for detail, great communication, and a keenness for problem solving, as well as significant experience in recruiting and/or talent management. Examples of projects you would work on include, but are not limited to, creating business-critical dashboards, defining key metrics, and investigating challenging questions around employee attitudes and behavior. Working alongside Data Scientists who dig deep into Airbnb's data, you will help them translate complex findings and results into a compelling narrative. In this role, you will have tremendous upwards exposure as the Data Science team’s mouthpiece to senior business partners. If you’re passionate about leveraging data to drive business decisions, we want to hear from you.
