About Payments

At Airbnb, if there’s anything related to money, it comes to the Payments team.  We are building a world-class payments platform - one that currently supports 191 countries, 70 currencies, connects dozens of payment providers and banks, and processes multiple billions of dollars.  As the platform grows, we’ll be adding new payment partners, global licenses, and building new payment experiences for our guests and hosts. The Payments team builds a scalable foundation to support global scale, helps the company grow by bringing new markets and demographics to the platform, and enables new business initiatives to thrive by providing easy to use payment services.

About the Role

First and foremost, we’re looking for people who know and use Airbnb and believe in what we’re trying to accomplish. Airbnb is a marketplace that connects guests and hosts but provides the level of trust needed to enable each transaction. Payments is central to creating that trust, which is why Payments is a core and strategic part of Airbnb.

The Product team is at the center of all of the activity on our team. We play the role of conductor, enhancing our engineers, designers, and data scientists to build great product experiences. Our Payments Product Managers own and lead outcomes related to foundation, growth, and empowerment. This means our PMs set the vision and strategy, the roadmap, and executing on the plans that are developed.

Our Payments organization has five programs:

  • Payments platform - facilitating money movement and exchange of value,
  • Commerce platform - fueling growth for our business,
  • Compliance & Ops - ensuring safe and efficient payment processing,
  • Foundation - scaling our systems and infrastructure, and
  • Professional Services - ensuring strategic alignment with our business customers.

This role is in our Payments platform program. The Developer Products PM will be responsible for creating the developer experience for our business customers. As a platform team, we partner with Airbnb businesses (currently Homes, Experiences, Luxury, China, and Transportation) and help them with payment solutions.
