Founding Developer Evangelist

About Airbyte

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 raised a total of $31.2M by some of the world's top investors (Benchmark, Accel, YCombinator, co-founders or CEOs of Segment, Elastic, MongoDB, Cloudera, 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.

Description

As our first Developer Evangelist, you will have two focuses:

  1. Building a content hub focused on data engineering (and not Airbyte per se), featuring a podcast that brings thought leaders and community members into the conversation. This will be supplemented by a rich catalog of written content focused on increasing Airbyte’s share of voice in the data integration space.

  2. Launching a meetup program around data engineering, leveraging the content hub’s brand

The goal of the developer evangelism program is to make Airbyte’s content hub the best place to get thoughtful content on data engineering. As the first member of our developer evangelism team, you will work closely with the founders and our growing community team.
