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 the past 24 months, we've built over 200+ connectors and we've had 25,000+ 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.

Airbyte’s open source data movement solution is quickly becoming a best practice for data engineers. To keep up with this demand, we are looking to improve our top database and API connectors by building a team to focus on their quality, scalability, and use case coverage.

As the Engineering Manager for the Strategic Connectors Team, you will own the development, maintenance, and roadmap for the most critical and highly-used connectors on the Airbyte platform. 

This is a chance to use your technical experience, management skills, and forward-looking mindsight to build this team from the ground up. Together, let’s change how businesses make data available and actionable to everyone, everywhere.
