The purpose of this document is to outline the principles of a manager at Airbyte. The document focuses on WHAT and anchors heavily on our values and our methodologies. The HOW will be addressed by our People team.
At Airbyte we are building a great product for our community and our customers. We want to make all data available and actionable to everyone, everywhere. It is a very challenging task and we are building a world-class team to solve it.
Our team is composed of A-players who thrive when working at the edge of their abilities. As such, we hold each other and people joining the team to high standards and high expectations. In this high talent density environment, our standards and expectations for managers are even higher.
Not everyone can nor should be a manager. A manager is not a promotion. It is a fork in one’s career. This is why we made sure both the Individual Contributor track and the Manager track are equivalent. You should only look at this role if the set of problems that it solves are of interest to you.
Airbyte managers are here to create leverage for the company by enabling their teams. They contribute to Airbyte success by making best use of their team’s talent in a constrained environment. This requires an ability to be ruthless with priorities and to create strong focus within the team.
If a manager falls short of our standards and expectations, it will have a ripple effect on the rest of the company, our community, our customers and our investors.
This makes the manager’s role the most challenging job at Airbyte.
A manager has three core responsibilities:
⇒ These 3 pillars are how a manager will be evaluated.
We built our methodology as a tool that can be leveraged to successfully execute on these pillars. Here is how to apply the methodology in your role as a manager.
