We were thrilled to hear from our old friend, Srin Madipalli, founder of Accomable which was acquired by Airbnb last November. Srin has now moved to San Francisco from London and is working with the Airbnb team to make the site more accessible for individuals with a disability and needs your assistance.
Airbnb is looking for volunteers to participate in a research exercise as part of their effort to make their site more inclusive and would pay individuals up to $150 in Amazon gift cards for taking part as a research participant. Ideally, the exercise is for people actively looking for accommodation.
They're conducting 45-minute in-person one-on-one sessions on Tues., May 22nd and Wed., May 23rd at their office located at 888 Brannan Street, San Francisco. Each participant will receive $125 in amazon.com gift card for their participation. Additionally, they will also subsidize any travel costs for the participants and personal care assistants accompanying by adding $25 to the gift card. All information collected will be kept strictly confidential and used only internally within Airbnb to make the platform better for disabled people.
