Airbnb has become a global platform that connects travelers and hosts from over 81,000 cities. Our mission is to enable a world where anyone can belong anywhere. Expanding our community to new types of hosts is critical to our mission.

Airbnb’s mission is to make people around the world feel like they can belong anywhere. We want our 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. Our 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 our guests. The team does this by ensuring that we have the right supply, at the right time, in the right place. We work to ensure that more homeowners join and thrive on Airbnb, that we support them and create a vibrant and activated community, and that we build best-in-class new verticals of inventory like boats or RVs.
