Data Scientist – Inference, Core HostData Scientist – Inference, Core Host 1001 views

Airbnb’s mission is to make people around the world feel like they can belong anywhere. They want their guests to be able to find any type of place that they need, wherever they are — from private rooms for the social traveler to entire homes for the large family, from event spaces for an offsite to the perfect venue for that rustic wedding.

About Homes

The Homes Business focuses on helping guests experience the world in a more authentic and meaningful way by staying with gracious hosts who offer their own unique spaces and hospitality. Their guests connect with those hosts through the Airbnb marketplace, which is unlike any other in the world.

About Core Host

The Core Host team is at the core of powering this mission, responsible for making sure that there is always the right type of place available for their guests. The team does this by ensuring that they have the right supply, at the right time, in the right place. They work to ensure that more homeowners join and thrive on Airbnb, that they support them and create a vibrant and activated community, and that they build best-in-class new verticals of inventory like boats or RVs.
