Engineering Manager, Finance at Airbnb

The Payments team at Airbnb is responsible for everything related to settling money in Airbnb’s global marketplace. We build technology that powers Airbnb’s massive daily transaction volume to collect payments from guests and distribute payouts to hosts. Our goal is to make the Payment experience on Airbnb as delightful, magical, intuitive, and easy as possible.

Our team owns the core infrastructure that enables money flow in and out of Airbnb. We hold ourselves and our team members to a very high bar:

  • We are a team of entrepreneurs that are highly autonomous and full stack.
  • We care about reliability, testability, and solid engineering design.
  • We keep up with change by evolving as individuals.
  • Our top priorities change daily where we constantly pivot towards things that are high impact.
  • We are adaptive and well-balanced when considering solutions and the spectrum of possibilities.
  • We recognize that creating software is a technical exercise mixed into a social exercise and thus communication matters, being proactive matters, and being influential matters.

We aim to be a force multiplier for the business by allowing it be increasingly global, making sure it is always running and available, and continuing to innovate on all fronts. We evolve ourselves, our team and our systems in calculated, focused and intelligent ways. Every single team member (both existing and new) contributes additional insight and perspective to improve the future of Payments at Airbnb.
