How’s the work at Airbnb payments team? Just got offered a L4 position and considering Payments team. How are the engineering challenges?

Culture and WLB seems pretty good from what I’ve read.

Also, is it a good time to join Airbnb given the recent exodus of employees and the controversy around CFO?

    I would consider it. If nothing else you have diversified your stock holdings in two of the biggest pre ipo companies

      But I’ve heard that Airbnb is not heavy on the engineering side. That’s my main concern. In the long term, how important would this be?

      What have you heard about it not being “heavy” on the engineering side? The exodus is on par with industry standards, just seems like a lot because it comes in waves after bonuses or vesting days. I say go for it. Payments team is a hot one!

    Congrats. I was rejected by this team after an onsite earlier this year, and hope to re-interview after a year.

    What's your current TC breakdown, and does it include stock appreciation?

    You get to keep you Uber stock if you leave before IPO?

    Also going back is always an option if you leave on good terms
