Open-source EL(T) platform
Remote
Full-time
About Airbyte

Airbyte is an open-source data integration engine that syncs data from applications, APIs & databases to data warehouses, lakes, and other destinations.

About the role

Airbyte is the open-source standard for EL(T). We enable data teams to replicate data from applications, APIs, and databases to data warehouses, lakes, and other destinations. We believe only an open-source approach can solve the problem of data integration, as it enables us to cover the long tail of integrations while enabling teams to adapt pre-built connectors to their needs.

 

Within just 18 months, we've built 150+ connectors and we've had 9,000+ companies syncing data with us. We've raised $181M from some of the world's top investors (Benchmark, Accel, Altimeter, Coatue, Y Combinator, etc.) and believe in product-led growth, where we build something awesome and let our product bring the users, rather than an outbound sales engine with cold calls.

 

Airbyte is remote friendly, with most of the team still based in Silicon Valley. We’re fully transparent as a company. Our company handbookculture & valuesstrategy and roadmap are open to all.

 

Opportunity

 

This team owns Airbyte's Open-Source product (github) which has a community of over 5K users in our public Slack workspace.

In addition to the protocol, the team is responsible for building fundamental ETL features like schema evolution and data staging. Additionally, it owns rolling out the OSS product across new platforms, e.g. ECS, Heroku, etc.

As an engineer on the team, you will be defining the future of OSS ETL and building the platform for the data infrastructure of teams everywhere.
