Search at Airbnb | Airbnb Tech Talks | SoMa

Lead search engineer Maxim Charkov will be talking about how they do search at Airbnb. He’ll be talking about the complexities of searching over half a million unique listings around the world, running experiments in a two-sided marketplace, and the algorithms and technology we built to do it.

A successful e-commerce platform requires an outstanding search engine – it is a major conversion driver that must be designed to balance a diverse set of user needs. The new generation of two-sided marketplaces, like Airbnb, presents a unique set of challenges that go far beyond the requirements of traditional search engines. They’re building technology that bridges the gap between online and offline worlds by serving as the matchmaker between over 600,000 properties and millions of guests, all with complex underlying marketplace dynamics.

Light fare & drinks will be served at 6 pm; the talk begins at 7 pm.
