In order to build the world's most loved travel company, we need the world's most interesting and talented people. Are you one of them? If so, we want to talk to you!

The Airbnb Creative Fellowship is a one-year opportunity to stretch your skills in a fast-paced environment where visual design, brand, and product marketing go hand-in-hand-in-hand. This year, we are looking for four talented new-grads specializing in either Design, Motion, Photography, or Copywriting. These four Fellows will be immersed in a collaborative team, learn more about the Airbnb business beyond design, and help create community-driven brand expressions. All the while, you'll be receiving support and mentorship from a creative group of makers and thinkers.

Airbnb's Creative is a team of designers, filmmakers, illustrators, photographers, writers, producers, prototypers, and storytellers. We fuel the brand by merging multidisciplinary skills to create meaningful online and offline experiences for the Airbnb community around the world. From writing, shooting, and editing award-winning marketing campaigns to crafting smartly illustrated infographics, the team has become a collaborative unit that creates impactful, innovative, and authentic stories. If you're thirsty for collaboration, have a passion for solving open-ended problems, never take yourself too seriously, and have the skillset to push the envelope, consider coming aboard for a year.

As a Motion Fellow, you will explore new skill areas and gain a better understanding between the interaction between animation, storytelling, and business. From concept to execution to presentation, you'll be immersed in the end-to-end process of Creative projects. You will be asked to stretch your talents, not only in film and editing through storyboarding, animating, conceptualizing, and prototyping, but also by collaborating between different teams within Airbnb including Marketing, Product, PR, and more. By the end of the fellowship, you should leave with a diverse body of work and with a greater understanding of how your skill set can impact a business.
