Yoni Karpfen
Research Manager at Airbnb


Yoni’s work is guided by three simple principles: Everything is DESIGN; Design is about PEOPLE; People seek what they VALUE. A native Montrealer, Yoni developed his research chops at Ipsos, then moved client-side at Disney and LinkedIn before joining Airbnb. He completed his masters in political theory at The London School of Economics, and holds undergraduate degrees in music, English literature, philosophy, and archaeology. Outside of obsessing over hospitality experiences, you’ll find Yoni at the yoga studio or sailing on San Francisco Bay.
