Join our Experiences Team: 

Airbnb Trips launched in November 2016 with the ambitious goal of taking Airbnb from an accommodations business to an end to end travel platform. By expanding Airbnb’s product offerings and making it easy to plan an entire trip in a single space, our goal is to make Airbnb the only travel platform our guests will ever need. The Experiences team plays a crucial role in realizing this mission

Travel today can be impersonal, mass-produced, and difficult to plan -- Experiences will make travel magical again by immersing travelers in communities around the world and making it easy to travel authentically. Experiences are handcrafted activities designed and led by local hosts. Hosts give travelers unique, unprecedented access and deep insights to places and passions in their city. The team owns the product holistically, driving all development including search ranking, growth, booking conversion, host acquisition, hosts tools, and host education.

We’ve already seen tremendous growth, but we are still very early in our journey. We’re looking for strong, collaborative, entrepreneurial engineers to set an early foundation for the Experiences team. If you’re interested in making significant impact on our product and are passionate about redefining the future of travel, this team is for you.
