Experience Designer

Design | San Francisco

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, we use hundreds of Post-Its a week, and we give the best high-fives in town.

Airbnb's interaction designers make the complex simple and know the details aren't the details, they are the product. Do you love to choreograph the dance of getting users from A to B? Are your instincts in touch with a higher power known as 'usability'? Well then you get that the best interactions aren't even noticed by a user because the design gets out of their way. We seek someone who loves getting in the weeds to smooth out existing interactions and invent new ones. Your work will ensure that guests and hosts all around the world will be able to use Airbnb.
