Engineering Manager, Infrastructure

Engineering Managers, Infrastructure at Airbnb

Airbnb’s core business, engineering team and number of new products is rapidly growing, all in an effort to create a world where everyone in the world can Belong Anywhere. To keep up with the scale, one of Airbnb’s biggest investments is in infrastructure engineering. Our infrastructure teams are concerned with making our engineers and data scientists productive, our site available to hosts and guests and our company (people and products) informed by data.

Some examples of current infrastructure work:

  • A publish-subscribe message bus to allow for simple, reliable inter-service communication
  • A development environment that enables standardized testing and interaction between services
  • Distributed tracing infrastructure that allows us to find bottlenecks across our entire system and trace errors
  • Projects to drive real-time data adoption across the company
  • Continuous performance profiling to keep our response times down
  • A video service, which will be used by several product teams
