Product Lead - Communities

The Product Management Lead for Host Communities is responsible for driving our strategy for building strong relationships with our hosts globally, and supporting their relationships with the local communities where they live.

Our vision for a host-led world requires us to build and retain a highly engaged community of hosts all around the world. These hosts must feel supported by Airbnb, connected to each other, allowed by their local laws and welcomed by their community.

The PM Lead will partner with engineering, design, data science, policy and marketing to deliver on our vision for legitimized, inclusive and engaged hosts.  Our Communities Team looks after 3 pillars of hosting today:

  1. Cities, partnering with the global policy team to build first of a kind technology supporting the legitimization of hosting all around the world
  2. Inclusion, working with our guests, hosts and civil rights experts around the world to ensure that people of all races, ages and abilities have equal access to amazing experiences
  3. Community development, including our Superhost program, to build a holistic approach to supporting our very best hosts and giving them access to benefits, each other and the Airbnb team so we continue to have the best community in the world.
