Airbnb - Suggest best teams

VMware helphelp
Jun 21 10 Comments

I recently cleared the interview stage with Airbnb. And I'm now in the team matching phase. I am seeking suggestions on which teams are the best in terms of technically challenging work, opportunities to build systems from scratch, take ownership of projects and of course in terms of impact. Any new teams being setup working on something cool?

Since Airbnb has grown tremendously in the last few years, are there still enough opportunities to learn and grow at a fast pace?

My interests lie in distributed systems, infrastructure development, building scalable systems.

I am in talks with the Payments team and the financial reporting team so far.

      Totally off topic, but you know what's annoying? "I bagged an offer from ___". It reminds me of knapsack problem. :/

      It’s used by some other Asians too. Interviews are similar to exams - obstacles to the next step

      Interviews - 1-2 technical phone screens. Onsite - 2 coding, 1 architecture, 1 project deep dive followed by 2 cross functional interviews.

      Coding - Focus is on getting a neat working solution which passes all tests. (Hint - LC)
      Architecture - Typical system design, but for an Airbnb relevant system
      Cross functional - Questions on culture fit

    I know the leadership in the infrastructure team is the best you can get. The IT team is led by really amazing people overall, though.
