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.

Within just 18 months, we've built 150+ connectors and we've had 15,000+ companies syncing 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.

We’re fully transparent as a company. Our company handbook, culture & values, strategy and roadmap are open to all.


The goal of the Technical Support Engineer is to provide world-class support to our Airbyte OSS Enterprise customer and set a new standard for community engagement in open source software (OSS). Airbyte is community powered; together we are making OSS the standard for ETL.

You will be the voice of the user and collaborate closely with your Technical Support Specialist teammates as well as work closely with the product and engineering teams to make sure key improvements are added to the roadmap.
