Infrastructure at Airbnb:

Airbnb’s mission is to create a world where anyone can belong anywhere. We began as a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world, but homes are just the beginning. We believe in the positive power of using technology to connect people to genuine, human experiences. Regardless of whether we are creating new product categories like local experiences or improving our personalized recommendation algorithm, infrastructure is the foundation upon which we create a world where anyone can belong anywhere.

Infrastructure teams at Airbnb are responsible for building the shared tools, service components and systems that underscore Product and Engineering's ability to deliver high availability services, build and iterate on products quickly, and make data informed decisions. We also improve the scalability and performance of our applications through providing architecture design reviews, in-depth performance profiling, and building accessible tools for engineers to characterize the bottlenecks and interactions within and between an ever-growing number of systems. We are looking for candidates who share a passion for building scalable service oriented platforms with experience in any of the following areas:

  • 2+ years industry experience
  • Event relay and streaming: Kafka, Spark, Flink
  • Monitoring, tracing, and profiling: OpenTracing, Zipkin, LTTng, perf, ruby-prof
  • System monitoring and log management: Druid, Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana
  • API framework: GraphQL
  • Amazon Web Services eco-system: EC2, S3, RDS (MySQL), DynamoDB
  • Container orchestration: Kubernetes
  • Database administration: MySQL DBA
  • Data visualization
  • Performance benchmarking and diagnostic tools
  • Experience with service oriented architectures and breaking monoliths into microservices
