Product Manager, G+T (Host growth)

Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 34,000 cities and over 190 countries.
Airbnb's mission is to make people around the world feel like they can belong anywhere. We want our guests to be able to find any type of place that they need from private rooms for the social traveler to entire homes for the large family, from event spaces for an offsite to the perfect venue for that rustic wedding.
