The Community You Will Join
Trust Platform Engineering
Everyone at Airbnb thinks about trust, but our team obsesses over it daily. The Trust team is responsible for protecting our community and platform from fraud while also ensuring our hosts, guests, homes, and experiences meet our high standards. Trust Platform is responsible for foundational systems that power the detection and mitigation of fraud at scale across Airbnb, such as the rules engine, friction framework, and vendor API gateway, and supports one of the highest throughput systems across the company. The team works closely with the Trust defense teams to tackle the changing landscape of fraud attacks, and build platform features to enable Trust product teams to quickly build frictions, rules, and enforcement tools for agents.
The Difference You Will Make
As a Senior iOS Software Engineer on the Trust Platform team, your expertise will be pivotal in developing and evolving the friction framework used for mitigating fraud across the Airbnb iOS application.

The friction framework is used by Airbnb engineering teams to build frictions, and is pivotal in protecting our community and platform from fraud while also ensuring our millions of hosts, guests, homes, and experiences meet our high standards.
