Currently, he spearheads product strategy, road mapping, and implementation for Airbnb’s Relevance team. Daniel coordinates with teams across engineering, design, and marketing, to create an industry-leading experience driven by the latest in machine learning advances. His responsibilities include working directly with artificial intelligence engineers on cutting edge search, ranking, and recommendation problems, deciding the best way to approach data-driven tradeoffs between a portfolio of business objectives in the search stack, defining, building, and analyzing KPIs/metrics for the success of products. Prior to his current role, Daniel was a Staff Product Manager at Etsy, where he was responsible for vision and roadmap for AI-driven search growth, and led the team responsible for upgrading Etsy’s first-gen machine learning search stack to a multi-tiered system designed to optimally balance multiple business objectives while achieving state-of-the-art search performance.
