The Human Team:
Help Airbnb fulfill its Belong Anywhere mission by building products for people who have been forced to flee their homes or are otherwise in urgent need of housing. The Human team is a cross-functional group focused on creating unique product solutions to difficult social problems in housing, livelihood creation, and bias/perception. We are responsible for meeting Airbnb's commitment to house 100,000 people in need over the next five years.
We are looking for self-directed engineers to work with our cross-functional team on all aspects of product development: strategy, brainstorming, user research, design, execution, and iteration. The ideal candidates will have a customer-focused mindset, a desire to shape product direction, and strong technical and strong cross-functional communication/collaboration skills. They must embody Airbnb's core values and be a champion for the mission of helping everyone, especially people in need, belong anywhere. This includes a commitment to social impact, social justice, working with diverse communities and interest in learning and engaging with identities other than their own.
We are a small team working in an evolving space, so the engineers must be comfortable in a fluid work environment where responsibilities may change rapidly in response to sudden shifts in government policy and world events.
