Airbnb is a mission-driven company dedicated to helping create a world where anyone can belong anywhere. It takes a unified team committed to our core values to achieve this goal. Airbnb's various functions embody the company's innovative spirit and our fast-moving team is committed to leading as a 21st century company.

About Experiences

Experiences can be Airbnb’s second cultural phenomenon and completely reinvent how travelers experience cities and destinations. Across travel, entertainment and education, we believe this opportunity has the potential to be bigger than our Homes business. In the future, we also have an ability to turn Airbnb into a weekly use case with locals. And with the new Online Experiences, Airbnb could drive the next wave of entertainment “off screen”. We have the opportunity to become *THE* platform for online and In Real Life (“IRL”) experiences.

About Airbnb Hosting

Every day, millions of Airbnb hosts around the world create comfortable, reliable and welcoming Stays and Experiences for our guests. Hosting on Airbnb offers a unique way to meet our Hosts’ financial goals but the rewards for opening their home or sharing a passion go beyond their bank account. Hosting also offers the opportunity to impact their local community, share their culture and connect with people they wouldn’t have met otherwise.

Our Hosting organization exists to bring a wider array of diverse Hosts into the Airbnb Community, support their success, earn their trust and ensure their safety and security. As the world emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, Airbnb aspires to lead the travel industry with an entirely new form of community-powered travel, where creatively-led design is at the core of our offering. We know that our global community of hosts is one of Airbnb’s most precious assets and we are very intentional on how we nurture the common identity of being an Airbnb Host.
