Our vision is to build an experience to allow users to complete the entire travel lifecycle in one app. Since November 2016, Airbnb has launched multiple businesses to augment our accommodations business (e.g. Experiences, Restaurants, Airbnb Plus, Luxury) and expects to continue scaling up the number of verticals to address gaps in our travel ecosystem.
The Trip Platform team delivers and maintains a cohesive experience through which guests on Airbnb explore our offerings across verticals, plan the details of their trip collaboratively and look for assistance while on trip. Additionally, the team provides generic solutions enabling integration that supports our existing and future businesses; making it easier to launch new offerings and cheaper to maintain existing ones.
iOS engineers play a essential role in providing our guests with a world-class experience. You will work closely with product managers, designers, and data scientists to build the user-interface for an end-to-end trip. We build out platforms and tooling to enable our businesses to easily have a consistent user-experience, and heavily focus on a highly performant iOS application leveraging the latest technologies.

* A flexible component library within our search product to allow our backend to optimize the search experience without frontend changes. * Redesigning the front screen of Airbnb app to provide guests a guided experience into our product. * Creating a cohesive performance strategy that includes app startup, render time, as well as animation and scrolling performance. * A new surface to enable rich trip planning with an emphasis on group trips.
