What Airbnb is looking for in applicants

Airbnb is a mission-driven company dedicated to helping create a world where anyone can belong anywhere. It takes a unified team committed to our core values to achieve this goal. Airbnb's various functions embody the company's innovative spirit and our fast-moving team is committed to leading as a 21st century company.

Our Product Managers embody this culture and mindset. Product Managers here imagine the ideal end state for our community (Guests and Hosts) first and work backwards from it, challenging all current assumptions. They champion a winning strategy and leverage metrics to ensure we are making progress against it. They partner with talented cross-functional team members (across Engineering, Design, Data Science, etc.) and lead teams to execute upon a shared vision. They are incredibly hands on and are not afraid to roll up their sleeves to get the right outcome for our community.  We are looking for leaders who want to join us in this journey to accomplish our mission of creating belonging everywhere.

About Trust

The Airbnb Trust team builds trust by creating safety at each moment of the journey. We set the standards & expectations, do our best to keep bad actors out and provide the right tools for good users to thrive without getting caught in the net.
