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.

The Community You Will Join:Airbnb is a mission-driven company dedicated to helping create a world where anyone can belong anywhere. It takes a unified team committed to our core values to achieve this goal. Airbnb's various functions embody the company's innovative spirit and our fast-moving team is committed to leading as a 21st century company.

The Difference You Will Make:

The backend build infrastructure team’s mission is to enable Airbnb backend developers to edit, compile and test their code quickly and reliably. This team serves as the bridge that connects Airbnb’s backend monorepo to platform-agnostic developer tooling (e.g., CI/CD, remote testing environments). You will be responsible for maintaining and improving our key metrics such as performance (e.g., PR CI times), reliability (e.g., flake rate), and cost.

A Typical Day:

As an engineer on Build Infra, you will work on technologies that help shape an industry-leading end to end developer experience for backend developers. In this role you will be:

  • Building our next-gen build system using the latest technologies (e.g., Bazel)
  • Working on integrations between the build system and CI/CD tooling (e.g., merge queues, code coverage, integration testing)
  • Improving the editor (e.g., IntelliJ) experience for all backend developers
  • Helping to shape the technical strategy that directly moves our core metrics (Developer Experience, Developer Velocity, Debuggability, Resilience and Reliability) while reducing cost.
  • Partnering with engineering leaders across all Airbnb teams for adoption of the new capabilities. Your customers will be all engineers at Airbnb.
  • A player/coach of our high-performance team to ensure code quality, commitment to craft and operational excellence

Your Expertise:

  • Experience working directly on build systems, and even better if you have completed a migration to Bazel
  • Experience working with large monorepos
  • Extensive JVM experience
  • Want to tackle projects with large open-ended scope and drive significant business impact
  • Love collaborating via product reviews, code reviews and architecture discussions
  • Are motivated to improve their teammates’ productivity
  • Are excited to join an impactful infrastructure team

Minimum Requirements:

  • 9+ years industry experience
  • Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree, preferably in CS, or equivalent experience
  • Proficiency in one or more back-end server languages (Java/Ruby/Go/C++/etc.)
  • Experienced in architectural patterns of a high-scale distributed products/services, such as well-designed APIs, data pipelines and efficient algorithms
  • Experience or desire to work collaboratively in cross-functional teams with design, product and data science partners
