Product Manager, Personalization



United States
Posted on Thursday, June 27, 2024

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 Community You Will Join:

Our Product Managers imagine the ideal experience for our community and work backwards, creating innovative products that delight our guests and Hosts. They deeply understand the needs of our users and translate these into a strategy that combines strong product thinking and deep research. They partner with talented cross-functional team members across engineering, design, operations, data science, and more, leading teams to execute a shared vision. They are incredibly detail-oriented and hands on.

The Difference You Will Make:

You will be a leader on the team responsible for product roadmaps and launches at Airbnb. You will drive specific feature/s that are part of every launch and determine how they are communicated to the external world. You are responsible for the success of Airbnb products throughout their life cycle — from concept to release. And their cross-functional work ensures a consistent product voice across all the products being developed at Airbnb.

This position requires the ability to take on the fascinating and complex challenge of personalizing the experience of every user on the Airbnb platform. It will include developing privacy-preserving data collection; AI/ML systems that generate insights unique to each user; defining how those insights are used in our products and across marketing and CS channels; and setting policy and product direction on how each user will have visibility and control over their personal data and their experience. The result will be an Airbnb that can deliver delightful and accurate recommendations during trip planning, on-trip bookings and add-ons, and when encouraging users to plan their next adventure.
