Samara is a design studio at Airbnb that reimagines social norms to advance humankind. We’re the skunkworks unit of Airbnb with a mission to explore the unexplored, designing products and services that adapt to our lives, bringing us closer to each other and with ourselves.
Our work is anchored in beautiful design, rich narrative, a radical spirit, and expands on Airbnb’s DNA. We work closely with Airbnb and its core business model, but operate with a more experimental, flexible attitude towards ideating and shipping products, focusing more on pushing technological and cultural boundaries.
Samara is looking for an Architecture and Design Manager to lead architectural research and design explorations (check out a past project, Yoshino Cedar House). You will be responsible for building and managing a dedicated design team, leading architectural research and establishing collaborations with external studios and partners. You’ll work on beautiful and radical projects, making impossible concepts possible and, ultimately, helping pioneer the future of Airbnb.
