Min. Experience: Experienced

CouchSurfing is an international network that connects travelers with locals in over 230 countries around the world. Since 2004, members have been using our system to come together for cultural exchange, friendship, and learning experiences. Today, almost four million people who might otherwise never meet are able to share hospitality and cultural understanding all over the world.

Our mission as an organization is to create inspiring experiences: cross-cultural encounters that are fun, engaging, and illuminating. These experiences take many forms. CouchSurfing's initial focus was on hosting and 'surfing' (staying with a local as a guest in their home). Alongside these core experiences, we now also facilitate a growing array of activities and events.

We are opening up a new office in San Francisco and are looking for talented inspiring new colleagues to help out in this incredible mission! Look at our website for more information: CouchSurfingJobs.com
