Airbnb was born in 2007 when two Hosts welcomed three guests to their San Francisco home, and has since grown to over 4 million Hosts who have welcomed more than 1 billion guest arrivals in almost every country across the globe. Every day, Hosts offer unique stays and experiences that make it possible for guests to connect with communities in a more authentic way.

The AirKey Team is building a platform to integrate and partner with smart locks. Our team’s goal is to deliver a magical experience for guests from the start by making checking-in easier, while also creating tools to help Hosts manage their check-ins.

  • Nurture a culture of technical quality from design, through code review, to production operations
  • Mentor other engineers in developing their technical and collaboration skills
  • Identify and propose solutions to problems coming in the way of technical and product engineering excellence
