Airbnb is built on trust. Our security team works hard to improve the security of our platform that enables millions of users to explore the world.
We are looking for people who want to make the Airbnb platform safer for millions of users around the world. We’d love to talk to you if you’re a talented individual who is passionate about finding security weaknesses and crafting scalable and usable solutions. We are enablers who make it easier for engineers to create secure features, not blockers. We have generalist infosec roles, as well as more specialized roles around penetration testing, threat modeling and security reviews, incident response, and development-focused roles that build security tooling. If that mission sounds exciting to you, please reach out!
