Careers at Airbnb

What is the Verified Listings team at Airbnb?

Homes is Airbnb’s core business and has expanded from one marketplace to multiple categories including Hotels, Core Hosts, Professional Hosts, Plus, China, and Lux. There are more verticals to come as our business continues to grow rapidly. 

The Verified Listings team focuses on ensuring accuracy and quality for 100% of listings and hosts on Airbnb. Trust on the Internet begins with verifying the accuracy of the information on Internet platforms — this is an important step for our industry.

The team was formed in early 2020 as part of a high profile company commitment and is building the foundations for the future of Airbnb. 

As an Engineering Manager and an early member of the team, you will lead a talented group of engineers, work closely with cross functional partners and teams, set the technical direction of the long term vision, and deliver platform capabilities that enable teams to drive their business impact.

What does being an Engineering Manager at Airbnb look like:

Being an Engineering Manager at Airbnb allows you bring a diverse set of skills all into focus to help us drive growth and impact across the world. You will necessarily have a technical background but are now responsible for important product and infrastructure surface areas to move forward. At a high level, that means a high interaction rate with your cross-functional peers (product, design, data science, research, and more) to develop strategy, long-term goals, and execution plans to get there. Day-to-day, you’ll be responsible for making sure the engineering team is delivering while adapting to all the changes that come along as projects go forward. In addition, you’ll be responsible for the career growth of your overall team internally at Airbnb - everything from 1:1’s to career progression plans and whole team career forecasts. You’ll be intimately involved in recruiting and working both with our internal recruiting team, our M&A team, as well as investing in growing your team directly. You’ll make sure the quality of the engineering efforts are always exceptional by setting up the correct processes and quality control checks for the team to execute within and you’ll identify new technologies and skill sets to bring into the team to keep the team moving forward on new challenges.
