Create a world that inspires human connection


We build the best experience for our community - as a team.


We look inside and outside for inspiration and learning.


Life is what happens when you're busy working. We make sure to enjoy it.

Together at Airbnb

No global movement springs from individuals. It takes an entire team united behind something big. Together, we work hard, we laugh a lot, we brainstorm nonstop, we use hundreds of Post-Its a week, and we give the best high-fives in town.


Be a Host

Collaborative. Anticipates the needs of others. Prepared. Authentic. Listens. Advocates and eliminates interference for others. Considers the whole person. Humble.

Champion the Mission

Passionate. Committed. Optimistic. Puts the Airbnb community first. Takes ownership and delivers results. Perpetuates belonging.

Every Frame Matters

Thinks holistically. Rigorous about quality. Appreciates the details and prioritises the right ones.

Be a "Cereal" Entrepreneur

Creative. Embraces constraints. Solution-oriented. Tenacious.


Prioritises. Distills a problem to its essence. Makes and communicates clear decisions.

Embrace the Adventure

Flexible. Risk tolerant. Always learning. Curious. Open-minded. Brings joy to their work.

We Learn from the Best

We're dedicated to constant learning. That's why we organise Fireside Chats, which bring in industry leaders to share their experiences and wisdom. From CEOs to musicians, these leaders always have something invaluable to teach us.
