Small teams building for a global marketplace
Our engineering team draws on a diverse, rich set of experiences and skills to create huge solutions that touch the lives of thousands of users every day. We’re uniquely creative: we’ve built medical databases in Burundi, toured in professional bands and orchestras, sold Christmas trees, and won national Scrabble championships. We love to party together, and we have tremendous respect for each other. Whether it’s through designing and upgrading our existing infrastructure, building technology that facilitates our own payments system, or enabling our hosts and guests through our mobile apps, every engineer at Airbnb can build something new and wonderful, every day.

Airbnb bleeds design. Two of our cofounders are designers, and an appreciation of the power of design is in everything we do. Even our internal dashboards have great typography. We believe design is as much about behaviour and emotion as it is about utility and ease. We are a broad team that contributes to product direction and crafts pixel-perfect output. Situated with the engineering team, we move quickly but also have enough time and space to create broad, innovative ideas. We love simplicity and a sense of whimsy. Sound like your type of space? Join us.<br /> <br />We look to attract the best designers around, and are actively reaching out to candidates.
