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.

  • Act as Airbnb’s single point of contact for all other matters related to the region’s/market’s partner performance results, including representing the region along with the Regional Partner Manager to different functions within Airbnb.
