Staff Software Engineer, Data Warehouses at Airbyte (W20)
Open-source EL(T) platform

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

As a Staff Engineer on the Databases team, you will push forward Airbyte’s most popular connectors: destination warehouses. Our users are looking to coalesce all of their data into a single warehouse. This requires these destinations to be highly reliable, predictable, and efficient. It also requires them to be highly configurable to meet different warehousing and scaling needs. These destinations lay the foundation for our user's data strategies.

You will be responsible for defining the framework for how Airbyte interacts with and stores data in all data warehouses. You will also make sure we leverage warehouse-specific features to make Airbyte best-in-class for each destination that we support.

 

What You'll Do

  • Drive step function improvements in warehouse connectors performance & reliability
  • Build leverage: a week-long task this year should take ten minutes next year
  • Pioneer the creation of new patterns, tools, and frameworks for building warehouse connectors
  • Help shape the Warehouse Connectors team roadmap
  • Improve engineering processes and documentation
  • Design how Airbyte should present data in destinations to meet warehousing best practices
  • Write high-leverage code.
  • Mentor senior engineers

 

What You'll Need

  • Expert knowledge of multiple cloud data warehouses like Snowflake or BigQuery
  • Experience in profiling and optimizing high performance applications
  • 8+ years of software engineering experience
  • Ability to influence without authority and work with engineers junior and senior
  • A passion for continuous learning and improvement (both at a personal and team level)
  • Belief in our values

 

We provide

  •  Fully remote flexible work environment - we don’t look at when you log in, log out or how much time you work. We look at your output and we trust you; it’s the only way remote can actually work.
  • Unlimited vacation policy- we need you at your best at all times. Our expected minimum time off lets you schedule your work around your life.
  • Co-working space - most of our team enjoyed the WFH life but if you prefer to work from a co-working space, we will cover the full monthly cost.
  • Parental leave (for both parents) - so you have time to adjust to the new life (and work) schedule introduced by your new bundle of joy.
  • Travel With Purpose - we are a fully distributed, 100% remote-friendly team, however, we recognize the value of in-person time. We will pay for round-trip flights, hotel, transportation, and food on weekdays for you to visit our headquarters in San Francisco, or other members of your team around the world.
  • Open book policy - we will pay for books you purchase for your professional and career development.
  • Continuous learning/training policy - we sponsor you for the conferences and training programs you feel would add to your development in the company.
  • Competitive benefits package for US-based employees, including:
  • Blue Shield or Kaiser Medical Insurance
  • Dental & Vision Insurance
  • Life and AD&D Insurance
  • Long-term Disability Insurance to offer extra peace of mind, especially while we find ourselves in a global pandemic
  • Healthcare insurance for those whose countries do not provide it for free.
  • Mental Health Support for all team members provided via Spill.
  • 401k for US-based employees.
  • Sponsored visas for employees in need of them.

Technology

The platform is built in Java, but connectors can be built in any language, as they run as Docker containers. Most of our connectors are actually built in Python today.
