During my summer internship, I worked on a 12-week design project on the Airbnb Payments team. With a global reach over 190 countries, and processing payments in over 70 different currencies, working on the Airbnb Payments team was a unique opportunity make an impact at scale.
While this was my first time working for a larger tech company, navigating through various industry standards allowed me to grow significantly. By regularly meeting with content strategists, user researchers, engineers, and other critical stakeholders, I was able to balance my design to account for multiple cross-functional needs. From enriching my understanding of the problem space by testing my prototype with users across the world, to teaming up with a kick-ass engineering team to see my designs come to life, my time at Airbnb truly made 2019 my favorite summer yet!
