AirDNA began with a big dream in a balmy California garage in 2015. Since then, the technology startup has grown into the leading provider of data and business intelligence for the billion-dollar travel and vacation rental industry—with offices in Denver and Barcelona. 

Our self-serve platform eliminates guesswork and equips Airbnb hosts with smart and competitive insights needed to succeed in the ever-evolving short-term rental landscape. 

We also arm enterprise clients with customized reports and in-depth dashboards to ensure they can scale and invest strategically. These customers include hundreds of top financial institutions, real estate companies, vacation rental managers, and destination marketing organizations around the world. 

We track the daily performance of over 10 million Airbnb and Vrbo properties across 120,000 global markets. We also collect data from over a million partner properties. This marriage of scraped and source data, enhanced by our proprietary algorithms, makes our solutions the most accurate and comprehensive in the world. 

We’re firm believers that data isn’t the destination; it’s the starting point. The launchpad. The bedrock for any future-forward business.

An Insider's view of AirDNA

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

At AirDNA I’ve found a company that understands the importance of people having a life outside work and respects the employees free time. From unlimited DTO, to all the social events, AirDNA has a fantastic work-life balance and this helps promote a great culture.

I capitalized on the chance to learn new skills from my teammates and moved from backend to data engineering. Knowledge sharing from my peers was an intrical part of my growth, and encourages me to teach others. The cohesive nature of our team is the result of an environment where people enjoy what they do and have positive leadership and values.

I encourage teammates to freely ideate as well as challenge our assumptions. Making people feel seen and heard is essential to unlocking creative potential.


Director of Product Design

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office at AirDNA is incredible! Relaxed, chill, focused and fun. If you are cold, grab a blanket and work from the couch; if you need to get your blood circulating, the office pups love a quick walk downtown, and you can always find a friend to join you and grab a coffee from one of the nearby coffeeshops.
