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

Thank you in advance for your help!
- 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.
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.
- Backend, frontend, data, machine learning engineer lol just thought that was funny. Best of luck
