    Their engineering challenges aren’t superb — they compensate this with more pay.

      Tech debt and engineering challenges are two different things. I will be surprised if airbnb does not have complex engineering challenges.

      Lol. Why always uber guys responds with same exact response ?
      Every company has complex engineering challenges, but not every team in any company has complex challenges . There are tons of teams in google and Facebook which does not have complex challenges but there are some which has. Similarly that applies to uber and Airbnb . Please don’t say that uber has complex real-time calculations to solve . All companies have similar problems , some has more and others has less.

      I don’t buy that Uber’s isn’t lol. They are solving the same problems. Uber more with food delivery and trucking

    Yep, I came from fang and got a significant bump. Pretty enjoyable place to work overall, though a bit slow moving compared to some other top companies

      They’re profitable, have a business with a huge upside, they’re sitting on a huge chunk of cash and their financials look pretty solid. The only thing worrying is regulatory pressure. Not sure why you say this.

      Agree on most of those things. No idea why they tried to do the whole experiences on their website though. It was better with just homes/rentals. Also, they don't seem to be in a rush to ipo.
