Software Engineer, Full Stack

Software Engineering at Airbnb:

There is much more that we want to build and so much that we could improve. We value strong engineers who are agile enough to jump into most projects.

What are examples of work that Software Engineers have done at Airbnb?

  • Our payments platform transmits billions of dollars in dozens of different currencies among over 100 countries. By integrating new partners, we can both optimize our costs and grow our business by better supporting different countries.
  • We re-built the List Your Space flow. We A/B tested every change carefully and within three months doubled the conversion rate.
  • We created Neighborhoods, a product that answers the question of which parts of a city have desirable Airbnb listings for you. We built systems that allowed writers, translators, and photographers all over the world to collaborate on bringing cities to life. Read more.
  • When Hurricane Sandy struck, we partnered with the City of New York to quickly create a platform for New Yorkers to provide free housing to those who were displaced by the storm.
