Founding HR - Airbnb, Task Rabbit, Shyp
Our very special mentor today is Jabu Dayton, a Silicon Valley HR legend. She's worked as the founding HR lead for three super-growth startups: Airbnb, Shyp, & TaskRabbit. Jabu saw the growth of these companies from dozens to hundreds of employees. We network with Jabu today to talk about growing cultures, avoiding pitfalls & finding our way through one of the most challenging aspects of startup growth. We're proud to say we found a lot of great answers from this session. Watch this if you're want to simplify your hiring strategy.
The discussion with Sławek Smyl propelled our momentum as a data-driven company as he shared mindset in processing data on top of the theoretical foundations. There are various real-life scenarios on the implementation of ML that I learned from him that I either confirmed, or would never been able to learn merely through textbooks.
Our first webinar with experts in customer service & an audience of students from University of Gajah Madah. As a learning source, a platform to share knowledge, for the actionable result of professional networking.
Our journey today brings us to the world of SEO, search engine optimization. Finding good SEO advice is very difficult, and there's a lot of noise out there on the internet. Instead of approaching the topic by reading a sketchy blog post or YouTube video, we went straight to a domain expert with proven experience in the travel industry.
Community Management at Airbnb & WeWork Japan
Mina has worked 3 years at Airbnb & 2 years at WeWork in Japan leading communities of entrepreneurs. She shares with us today tips on successful community management and the special mindset it takes to effectively scale a community.

Sandra was remarkably articulate & generous by sharing her wisdom with us.

Our guest today is Nataly Bonato, an inspirational lady who's been pioneering the role of community management for decades. Nataly worked her way up to leading enormous Airbnb host communities in Brazil from the very beginning of the home-sharing movement in Latin America. Her story begins with a zero budget event where Nataly put together a borrowed projector and a bedsheet for her first community presentation. Her natural flair & strength can inspire delight to all entrepreneurs struggling to get their first users & customers.

In his own words, Ricardo engages and activates Airbnb Hosts at the local and regional levels in a wide variety of advocacy work, political and legislative solutions, healthy and sustainable tourism, and corporate decision-making.
