Global Trust & Safety Functional Manager

No global movement springs from individuals. It takes an entire team united behind something big. On the Trust and Safety team at Airbnb, we’re proud to be at the forefront of the sharing economy. We recognize that we are the leaders of a new, worldwide phenomenon, and it’s why we’ve worked so hard to build the trust at its foundation.

With over 100 million lifetime guests and 3 million listings in over 191 countries, trust is what makes it work. Together, we work hard, we laugh a lot, and we’re committed to creating a world where you can belong anywhere. We are looking for dedicated senior managers who are enthusiastic about leading teams and ready to craft a world-class claims resolution strategy.
