Airbnb is on a mission to help people belong anywhere in the world. To reach this goal, we are building an exceptional product for our guests and hosts, with a fast-growing team of some of the smartest people in the industry. That’s why today, we are excited to announce that we are expanding our presence to include a product and engineering team at our award-winning office in Portland, Oregon.

This is the first time we’ve had engineers, product managers, designers, usability researchers, and data scientists outside of San Francisco, and we wanted to take a really thoughtful approach to expanding our team. For the last few months, we’ve had an engineering landing team who have laid the groundwork for some of the cool projects the team is going to work on this year, as well as scoped out the best places to get caffeinated. Additionally, we’ve gotten to know a lot of folks in Portland through our hosting the HackPDX Winter Hackathon in December, and we are excited to announce that in 2016 we will be sponsoring Django Girls Portland. Our new product team in Portland is going to build a world-class platform and set of tools for our global customer experience organization. To learn more about some of the projects the team has tackled so far, check out this blog post from Emre, one of the engineers on the team.
