Career & Open Positions

Who we are

Airbyte is the upcoming 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 prebuilt connectors to their needs.

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

We're backed by some of the world's top investors 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.

Our Culture

We believe that a company culture needs to be opinionated to be effective and attract the right people. It cannot be right for every person, or it would mean we don’t have a culture. And that’s perfectly fine. Culture is also a living creature that will grow and evolve with the team and company. It is something we deeply care about.

Here are the values we deeply believe in:

  • Transparency and Candor

    • For any collaboration to be fruitful, we need full transparency.

    • Any opinion or concern needs to be shared.

    • Bad news must travel faster than good news.

  • Humility and Maximizing Growth

    • We are a team in search of truth, not in search of winning points.

    • We prioritize progress over perfection. We are thankful towards errors of action, provided we learn and get better.

    • We should never pull rank.

  • Being Intentional & Owning the Outcome

    • We don’t take things for granted.

    • Having a task means you are responsible for anticipating and solving problems.

  • Trust & Caring

    • Constructive feedback should be on a one-on-one basis.

    • Assume positive intent.

    • Address behavior, not people.

    • Don't let others fail, if you can help. We succeed together.

Our Investors

We are just closing a $5M seed round with Accel, YCombinator, 8VC, and a few leaders in the data industry (including the co-founder of Segment, the founder of Liveramp, the former GM of Cloudera).

We have a lot of capital, but we're a lean, strong team - so you've got the opportunity to have a huge impact.

Our Recruiting Process

We will schedule one first call with our founders or team. It will focus on two key areas:

  • Ensuring you will be a great cultural fit

  • Aptitude for the role

If you succeed with the above, we may do a written interview. Here are several reasons why we're big fans of this kind of interview. The main argument is that it removes a lot of the bias people might have during live interviews. Plus, we mostly work asynchronously nowadays, don't we?

If the written interview is a success, we might set you up with one or 2 additional calls, to test how you actually think and work, but also so you meet the rest of the team.

Once all of this done, we will discuss the process internally and get back to you very fast (velocity is everything here)! So about 2-3 calls and one written interview, that's it!

Our Benefits

  • Unlimited vacations

  • Health insurance: we let you choose the insurance of your choice and cover $500 for you + $200 for any dependents. This will evolve with time, especially after our Series A.

  • 401k

  • We'll give you a corporate card for expenses. Our philosophy is Freedom & Responsibiility. We trust you, just do what's best for the company.

  • We're strong believers in growth, as individuals and as a team. So anything that can help you grow can be expensed - for instance, free books.
