Online accommodation platform Airbnb on Thursday announced its employees will be allowed to ‘can live and work anywhere’.
Airbnb co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky said the company is implementing the change after it had “the most productive two-year period”.
We also had the most productive two-year period in our company’s history—all while working remotely

“Starting in September, you can live and work in over 170 countries for up to 90 days a year in each location. Everyone will still need a permanent address for tax and payroll purposes, but we’re excited to give you this level of flexibility,” Chesky says in a blog.
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky outlined the new policy, summing it up in five points:
- You can work from home or the office
- You can move anywhere in the country you work in and your compensation won’t change
- You have the flexibility to travel and work around the world
- We’ll meet up regularly for gatherings
- We’ll continue to work in a highly coordinated way
