Work Anywhere: Managing Remote Engineering Teams at Airbnb


Airbnb has a highly social and collaborative engineering culture so when the pandemic closed our in-person offices, there was a big shift in our ways of working. Now with our “live and work anywhere” work policy, Airbnb has embraced remote-first collaboration and culture. Through trial and error stories, learn how we effectively manage distributed engineering teams. Topics include:

  • Deciding between async and meetings
  • Facilitating technical design discussions and knowledge sharing
  • Collaborating as a team across time zones
  • Creating a strong and intentional engineering culture
  • Building trust through modeling authenticity and vulnerability
