What is the Write for the community program?

Airbyte is looking for data engineers to share their knowledge through blog articles. We think it is important that our writers are the same audience as Airbyte users, notably: data engineers, analysts, and backend developers.

The articles are published in our blog under the data insights or tutorials sections. Articles under the data insights section include thought leadership pieces where you share your view on a topic or introduce a foundational concept. Articles under the tutorials section include code and steps to build a data product using modern data tools like Airbyte. To write Airbyte specific tutorials, it helps if you are an Airbyte OSS user or Airbyte Cloud client.

What is the process?

Apply to become a writer

We want to provide the best possible experience to writers. You can apply to become a writer through our application form.

We would love to hear about your experience working with data, your experience using Airbyte (bonus), and your experience as a writer (bonus).

Agree on a topic

Once we have reviewed your application, we will schedule a call to come up with a topic based on your experience and interests. You can also select a topic listed as an issue on our Write for the Community Github project.

Create an outline

We will create an outline together in a Google Doc.

Review the article

You can start drafting the article on the same Google Doc as the outline. One of our internal writers will comment and add suggestions to the document. You can also schedule pair-writing sessions to advance on the article together.

Publish the article

We will publish the article in our blog for you. Then, we distribute the article on our social media and newsletter. We can also work together to distribute the article on Reddit and Hacker News.
