About Airtable

Airtable's mission is to democratize software creation. We believe that software stands to be the single most impactful way anyone can bring their ideas to life, yet that few people can actually access it as a creative medium. Airtable enables everyone to experience the power of creating, not just using, software.

  • Design, develop, and manage APIs, open source Software Development Kits (SDKs), and developer tools
  • Build out seamless developer experiences, and expand Airtable’s developer product strategy
  • Design and architect complex new systems, focusing not only on performance and scalability, but also on crafting a beautiful user experience
  • Work alongside and learn from a talented group of engineers with a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds

What we offer

  • Learning & Development: we offer a $2,000 per year stipend for your personal career development
