Native Infrastructure Engineering at Airbnb:

Airbnb is the world's largest marketplace for space, and we keep getting bigger every day. Not only is mobile quickly becoming the preferred means to book travel, it also uniquely enables our hosts to be responsive and connects our guests to the community. With over 100 million nights booked per year and counting, we continue to introduce architectural changes that enable the Airbnb app to scale and grow, ultimately allowing us to maintain a delightful user experience.

We provide the infrastructure to support over 100 mobile engineers working across several apps. The tooling created and best practices promoted help mobile engineers across Airbnb achieve the high quality code and fast iteration cycles that help drive our core business metrics. We are a mobile-only team with large ambitions to continuously improve the app and support dozens of product teams.

We're looking for someone who is not only well versed in mobile development, but also has a strong understanding of native architectural patterns and is excited to learn about and contribute to the mobile side of the business.

Our apps have been featured in the App Store, Google Play, and at WWDC.
