Trust and Safety Project Manager

Airbnb, San Francisco, California

Who wouldn't want to work here?

No global movement springs from individuals. It takes an entire team united behind something big.  Together, we work hard, we laugh a lot, we brainstorm nonstop, and we give the best high-fives in town.

As Trust and Safety Project Manager on the Systems and Innovation Team, you will provide project management skills to spearhead and drive in the implementation of critical large scale operations initiatives in support of the Trust and Safety department's Objectives and Key Results (OKRs).  Also, as Airbnb launches new products, you will ensure Trust and Safety concerns are considered and prepare the operations team for launch and rollout. You have demonstrated well-honed project management ability in previous work, and you have ambition to push for large scope improvements to our operations.  You have the ability to concentrate on the nitty gritty details that need improvement while also communicating a high level narrative to management and product teams.  You are a self-starter with a can-do attitude who isn’t afraid to roll your sleeves up, can work in a rapidly changing industry, tolerate ambiguity and demonstrate problem-solving leadership with limited oversight.  

The ideal candidate has some technical prowess and operational experience to help them make informed decisions that improve operational productivity (both efficiency and efficacy) while protecting our valued community.

  • Define project goals and key results that align with strategic vision. Gain buy-in, track results, and update progress to key stakeholders.
