This will come really handy, thank you. I'm trying to build a better infrastructure at work; do you have anything written up about how you work at Airbnb? Your "bring design & engineering closer together" mission sounds like what I'm trying to accomplish, would like to read/chat more about it.

We haven't written nearly as much as we'd like, but here are some you might like:

Design Ops (the org that contains my team - Design Tools) - http://airbnb.design/designops-airbnb/

The Way We Build (head of design @alexoid talking about our process) - http://airbnb.design/the-way-we-build/

Building a Visual Language (on our design system) http://airbnb.design/building-a-visual-language/

This is great, thanks Jon. I've been struggling to find good workflows for integrating design and engineering (especially when there is a disparity in maturity of the processes for each party).

I think there is definitely a gap in the "literature" for this topic and will be eager to follow any other progress you can share.

Would recommend joining the Design Systems Slack [1] and attending the Clarity conference [2] to meet like-minded folks!

That's really helpful, thank you!

I asked something similar when AirBnb announced Lottie, and the team (Jon Gold included) replied with great insights. I hope you find this helpful: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13547053

Nice, thank you a lot!
