Full time

Job Description

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:

The Connector Operations team’s mission is to ensure Airbyte’s catalog of over 180 connectors is easy to work with and manage.  This includes the overall monitoring of the quality and performance of our connectors along with the process to test, monitor, publish, and certify them.  We also ensure that connectors are a pleasure to discover and use within the Airbyte product.   Getting connectors right is the bread-and-butter of Airbyte.  Success looks like an ever-growing library where everyone on the planet can find a ready-to-use way to import and export the data they need. 

 
What You'll Do:

  • Drive projects that enable Airbyte and our community to produce and maintain world-class connectors at a rapid pace.
  • Develop changes to our core product(s) that make the experience of finding and configuring connectors as easy as possible.
  • Research and produce metrics that monitor the overall health of the Airbyte ecosystem.
  • Build leverage via engineering: a week-long project this month should be a ten minute task next month.
  • Guide product decisions and the team roadmap with engineering perspective.
  • Engage with the open-source community via Github, Slack, or community events.
  • Grow your teammates through mentorship
 
What You'll Need:
  • 4+ years of software engineering experience
  • Excellent communication skills appropriate for an async, remote-first company
  • Proficiency in Python and/or Java
  • Familiarity with tools like Github Actions, Docker, and Kubernetes
  • An automation and scalability mindset
  • 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 Paid Time Off - we need you at your best at all times. Our expected minimum time off of 25 PTO days per year lets you schedule your work around your life.
  • Co-working space - most of our team enjoys 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) - we offer 16 weeks of paid parental leave for all new parents so you have time to adjust to the new life (and work) schedule introduced by your new bundle of joy.
  • Sponsored Travel - we are a fully distributed, 100% remote-first team, however, we recognize the value of in-person time. We sponsor annual company-wide retreats, team offsites, and Travel With Purpose in between to allow you to collaborate with your team in person on a regular basis.
  • 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.
