Hiring Really Smart Software Engineer

logo-thumbnail-blue About Airbnb



We are changing the way people travel, and we need help getting there. We are looking to hire a talented engineer to work with us in our sunny San Francisco office (with an awesome roofdeck). Email us at jobs@airbnb.com

About you:

You are a talented developer with extensive experience, and you have one or more sites that clearly illustrates your capabilities. You are also a generalist, meaning you are comfortable and eager to work on what is needed, whether it be back-end or front-end. 

The advantages of working with us:

You will grow with us as we transition our company into a global movement. AirBnB is getting lots of press, and you will become one of the faces of our company. We were recently featured in TimeBusinessweekCNNNY Times, and TechCrunch. Our office is a fun, up-tempo environment. We keep our kitchen stocked, have a 360-degree view of San Francisco from our amazing roofdeck, and we like to frequent our local bar or Giant’s ball game together after work. We are not a typical company, and this is not a typical job. 

About AirBnB:

AirBnB is the “eBay of space.” We are a profitable Y-Combinator-funded company in the South of Market district of San Francisco. Our online marketplace lets people and businesses rent out their extra space to travelers, by the night, in 1000 cities in 74 countries.

  • You can learn a new language quickly

Bonus Skills:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • MySql
  • CSS
  • Javascript
  • AJAX


  • Competitive salary
  • Equity stake as first employee
