What is Data Engineering at Airbnb China?
We need to ensure every area of the business has trustworthy data to fuel insight and innovation. Understanding the business need, securing the right data sources, designing usable data models, and building robust & dependable data pipelines are essential skills to meet this goal.
This is critical for a fast growing business like Airbnb China. We need to be fast to respond to the fierce competition in the China market but also need to be cautious on every decision we make according to the data. Data Engineers in Airbnb China need to better leverage the resources we have as an international company: being fast in building trustworthy data but also collaborating well with the data engineers in other business units to prevent reinventing the wheel. You will have the chance to learn the dynamics of the fast growing China market and also have tied relationships with other data engineers to redefine what it means to do Data Engineering in Airbnb.
