We promote a culture of curiosity, humanity, and creativity through our product, brand, and, most importantly, our people.

About Airseva: Airseva, an affiliate of Airbnb is a newly set up shared services operations company. Set up in 2017 in Gurgaon, Airseva was established to service the global Airbnb community. We are a fast-growing, up-and-coming office and home to the most hospitable people you will ever meet! Our small and extremely capable team of Gurgaon-based colleagues strive to make the impossible happen for our inbound and outbound travellers within this big and diverse market.

Role of Manager with ability to operate a one stop shop set up

No global movement springs from individuals. It takes an entire team united behind something big. Together, we work hard, we laugh a lot, we brainstorm nonstop, we use hundreds of Post-Its a week, and we give the best high-fives in town.

In essence, this role is an “Air Traffic Controller” responsible for crafting a schedule that puts the right person on the right schedule at the right time. The ideal candidate will be analytical, highly organized, an excellent communicator, and have substantial experience managing complex schedules and/or operations.

While responsible for the day-to-day nitty gritty of schedules across multiple time zones and mediums, this role is also instrumental in planning for headcount and hiring. Essentially the role is focused on planning for the right workforce in Customer Experience (CX), including hiring and movement between teams; assessing metrics on an ongoing basis to see how we are doing; reviewing how effective schedules have been; and planning ahead for busier or slower times in our business.

The right person will be skilled at seeing the big picture, communicating effectively with multiple stakeholders on headcount hiring, a whiz at analyzing data, and highly motivated to improve systems and processes.

Like everyone we hire at Airbnb, it’s a given that the right candidate would be absolutely passionate about our mission and contributing to the best work culture on the planet.
