Software Engineer, Extensibility



Software Engineering
San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Friday, September 15, 2023
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 handbook, core values, methodology, strategy 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. OpportunityThe number of possible data integrations is growing at a faster rate than any single engineering team can support: new APIs, filesystems, and databases are born every day. To build thousands of high quality data integrations, we need tools that minimize the effort required to build and maintain them. Airbyte’s Extensibility team builds and maintains the tools needed to produce high quality connectors with a fraction of the effort. Our goal is to make it so easy to build a connector that it would be possible for anyone who wants to move data to do so in a UI in a no-code way. Our tools will provide leverage to help our community and engineers build out connectors.
