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.


As an Engineer on the Extensibility team, you will push forward Airbyte’s Connector Builder and Low-Code Connector Development Kit. Connector Builder already makes it possible for thousands of Airbyte users to move data from their internal sources into data warehouses, databases, and vector DBs. Think of it as Postman for data.

You’ll focus on the frontend pieces of Connector Builder, contribute to the Python connector development kit, and empower Airbyte API sources team, solutions engineering, and support engineering teams to use Builder to enable our community. You’ll help make Builder the best IDE for Airbyte connectors.

What You'll Do

  • Build new features and improve existing features of Connector Builder, making it dramatically easier and cheaper to make and maintain connectors.
  • Empower all teams at Airbyte to use Builder. Treat Builder as a startup in a startup, and other teams are your customers.
  • Relentlessly work on developer experience and infrastructure of Connector Builder. Build leverage for the team.
  • Help shape Connector Builder and Extensibility roadmap.
  • Engage with the open-source community via events, Slack, or pull requests.
  • Improve engineering processes and documentation around the Extensibility team and beyond.
  • Write high-leverage code.
  • Mentor other engineers.

  • Experience building developer tools and/or B2B applications.
  • Experience working directly with the users of your products, onboarding and supporting them.
  • Experience leading an engineering team, leveling up other engineers around you, and supporting other teams in your organization.
  • An insatiable desire to ship, relentlessly improving user experience.
  • Basic experience with Python. Don’t have to be an expert, but have to not shy away from reading the code and building prototypes.
  • Ability to influence without authority and work with engineers junior and senior.
  • A passion for continuous learning and improvement (both at a personal and team level).
  • Belief in our values
