Airbnb has experienced a lot of growth over the years. Currently our design department consists of nearly a dozen functions and outcome teams. It became clear that we needed more systematic ways to guide and leverage our collective efforts. While we recognized these challenges within the company, I believe they are symptoms of larger software industry problems.

I work with a bunch of really awesome people! What I admire the most about my team is that they all work together well. I feel that with the culture here, hard-working and fun-loving, are simultaneous. You know the importance of increasing revenue and developing relationships, but you can also tell that this is a group of people who love to help, have fun and make a difference.
Main Cabin passengers will also receive complimentary snacks and soft drinks or even full meals on transcontinental flights. Additional food and drinks are also available for purchase on many routes. Free snacks include Biscoff cookies or mini pretzels on flights over 250 miles. Business Class and First Class passengers can enjoy premium meals and a selection of award-winning wines.
Working in software development and design, we are often required to ship one-off solutions. Sometimes we’re working within time constraints and sometimes we just haven’t yet agreed upon a path forward. These one-off solutions aren’t inherently bad, but if they aren’t built upon a solid foundation, we eventually find ourselves having to pay back accrued technical and design debts.
We also use git/github to facilitate the file updating process. We manually create and add new components to our master library Sketch file, and submit pull requests with a change log and generated png exports that document the changes. After that, the Sketch file ends up in to a shared Box folder, which is linked to Sketch templates, so everyone has access to the new components immediately.
We offer apartment-style suites with a full kitchen, comfy recliner, cover lit bedding, and a flexible workspace. Business guests especially take advantage of our free Wi-Fi access and free laundry services. Our extended stay hotel is located near major businesses including Mercedes- Benz, Pfizer, BMW, KPMG, Western Union, and Towers Watson, as well as both Rockland Community College and Dominican College.
