    I have been working at Airbnb full-time (more than 3 years)


    Companies in hypergrowth offer amazing opportunities and chaos. People who think things should be done by the book, don't love Airbnb. It takes flexible, entrepreneurially minded people to succeed here. We have a motto: embrace the adventure.


    Change, there's a lot of change. Founders have very little work experience at all before their roles at Airbnb.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    interviewed at Airbnb in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a recruiter, who promptly scheduled a phone screening - the general talk about personal things.

    They then quickly scheduled another phone screening, this time with an engineer to test my coding ability (it took about a week between the initial screening and the technical interview). They asked me to code a csv parser in the 45 minutes of allotted time and get it to compile and run correctly. For this reason I chose python (java takes too long to get the peripheral framework ready to run). I would practice getting code to compile and run in about 35 minutes because it takes about 10 minutes to understand their question in detail.
