About AirDNA
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 MarketMinder 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 PTO, to all the social events, AirDNA has a fantastic work-life balance and this helps promote a great culture.


Data Scientist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We’ve organized into squads—cross-functional teams with representation from multiple departments designed to improve cross team collaboration and ensure that everyone has a voice in the evolution of our product. Eating our company-provided lunches together family style every day certainly helps too!


Chief Product Officer

How does the company support your career growth?

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 integral 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.


Data Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As the marketing team for a data-driven company, creative decisions are metrics-based. We ask simple questions: What purpose does this effort serve? What should our audience do afterward? A problem well defined and measured is a problem half-solved. And our slogan is "Feedback is priceless.” We are always looking to iterate and move forward.


VP of Marketing

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.
