About Airbyte

Airbyte is the new open-source data integration platform that runs in the safety of your cloud and replicates data from applications, APIs & databases to data warehouses, lakes and other destinations. In addition to offering a quickly increasing list of maintenance-free connectors, it makes building your own connectors trivial. Airbyte’s ambition is to make data integrations a commodity.

Since launching last year, Airbyte grew the number of connectors supported from 6 to 50, and counts now more than 600 companies that synced data with them. Airbyte just raised a significant Seed round with Accel and YC, and high-profile business angels in the data industry (co-founder of Segment, founder of Liveramp, former GM of Cloudera, etc.).

Company Culture

The full description of our company culture is public:

The more diverse the views, the more enlightened the decision will be. However, unity in action means for us that we don’t believe in consensus, and that even if you don’t believe in the decision that was made, you must commit to it and give it a chance to succeed. Consensus results in diluted solutions.

Candid collaboration can’t work without humility. Humility means that you’re open minded towards others’ opinions, and let others speak their minds, whatever their role. Leaving our ego at the door means you don't defend a point just to win an argument. 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 think of mistakes as the tuition for learning.

Owning a task means you are responsible for anticipating and solving problems. As an owner, you are responsible for overcoming challenges, not your suppliers or other team members. Take the initiative and proactively inform stakeholders when there is something you might not be able to solve.

Assume positive intent. We assume that people have the best intentions, so we assume the positive interpretation of behaviors and feedback, as opposed to the negative one.

Don't let others fail, if you can help. We succeed together. We keep an eye out for others who may be struggling or stuck, and see how we can provide assistance when needed.
