  • 22 May, 2023

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.
So far, we've built over 350 connectors and have had 35,000+ companies replicating 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 handbookcore valuesmethodologystrategy and roadmap are open to all.
If you find this role exciting, we encourage you to apply even if you think you don’t meet all requirements.

As Program Manager, you’ll own how we execute on our vision to become a best practice for integrating data from API Sources. To create many high-quality connectors, we plan to build an internal team of engineers, use outsourced talent, and leverage our open source community. In this position, you will chart the path on how Airbyte uses these levers to make its vision a reality.

This role is ideal for a results-driven system builder with a business mindset, critical thinking skills, and someone who enjoys end-to-end ownership. You strive to achieve results with maximum efficiency and effectiveness. If you are a good fit and you are excited to play a role in a key part of our long term vision, we’d love to meet you.
