I'm in the market looking to switch jobs. I will be highly obliged if any current AirBnB employees with be willing to refer me for an opening in their team. I can provide roles that interest me as well.

A little bit about me

Recent experience in application back-end/full stack/data and machine learning engineer. YOE = ~4 years

Initial YOE as front end and mobile. YOE = 2 years

Also experienced in managing small/midsize teams for end to end delivery of new initiatives at my late stage startup. Experienced in communicating with clients/SMEs/PM and Bizdev to shape product roadmap and improvements.

Thank you in advance for your help!

    I don't get the tech bit. It's just a listing site. Hardly 10 rps.

      In a nutshell, I like what they do with the recommendations, and the search is pretty precise and just works when you set very specific filters.

      The map framework, AirMapView, is pretty amazing IMO as well, and they also open sourced it. My team did a POC of it and the results were pretty satisfactory. Plus the advantage that it supports native map vendors and also works in China, let's say, where Google maps won't if I'm correct.

      Additionally, I believe their main analytics and insights platform sits on top of Spark. Their recommendation engine, or predictions and analysis of users travel trends, is the major backbone of the company as far as I know. It did change the game in the hospitality sector.

      @Amazon they have pioneered a lot of great tech and opensource tools used widely now. For example, airbnb created Airflow (Apache incubator project) one of the biggest most popular wms

      Correct. I haven't explored Airflow myself so I didn't comment on that. I was pretty excited about Polyglot recently. Need to explore it in more detail to see how it fares

      I believe they were one of the earliest adopters of AWS which made it big later on. Vision!

      Haha I love dogs but so far have been only playing with coworkers/friends dogs!

      It does make a diff between, having furry friends around at work. Massive stress buster

      Airbnb is a game changer? Lmao, it’s basically booking.com. Admit it, the only reason you want to work there is the prestige.

      Last I checked, booking.com never started letting homeowners, then agencies Workin on behalf of homeowners, put private listings on the market. So I have to disagree massively with you. Yes, VRBO was there, but we all know how that works.

      Having said all of that, booking.com and what not, and then wrapping up your message with a 'there is the prestige' - that was the lmao for me.

      Thanks. I just put what I did over the years out there. It does seem a lot and looks like I'm all over the place, but start-ups sometimes make you wear multiple hats.

      I do customize the resume to highlight relevant experience for each job.
