Work Up an Appetite with Airbyte


BERLIN, Germany - Is your next project leaving you hungry for more? Airbyte can help! With an adaptable approach to challenges and a team focused on long-term partnership, working with this member of the Pangea universe is sweeter than puff pastry!

To Make a Souffle Rise

Airbyte was founded in 2013, rising to prominence in the tech sector from their headquarters in London, United Kingdom. Their excellent communication and high company-client transparency makes this tech house a breath of fresh air, as do their digital architecture strategies and flexibility. Their CEO, James Farnfield, is one smart cookie, describing the company’s strong points to answer the question: why Airbyte?

“Being one of the fastest growing startups in London, we understand the challenges and excitement that startups and enterprises face. We don't pretend to know every market, however, we do understand high growth startups. Products we have designed and built have gone on to acquire over 1m customers, raised over £100m in funding and now have collective valuations exceeding £1bn. With our design, build, grow process we aren't only building mind-blowing quality in digital products, we are changing how hiring of product team talent is achieved. We believe in transparency, when you partner with Airbyte, you will speak with the founders.”

And he is not just all bark and no byte; satisfied past clients include virtual mental healthcare connection app MYNDUP, treasure hunt events app Wildgoose, and food delivery service Appetise. Their overall Pangea Score is more than 2% above average with a 9.3/10.0, so Pangea was delighted to welcome this delicious addition!

Byte Off What You Can Chew

Airbyte works with clients of all shapes and sizes; past partners have ranged in size from seed to series A and series B++ startups, agencies, SMEs, and enterprises and corporations. Generally, these partners can be found in the information and technology sector or the health and wellness sectors, though some of their more recent projects have branched out into food and beverages. Their Pangea Client Insights Score clocks in at a mouthwatering 9.1/10.0, with their highest KPIs being a 9.5/10.0 in project management and a perfect 10.0/10.0 in UX/UI design.

Where there is smoke, there is fire, and their past partners have glowing praise for the company based on their own experiences! The founder of a consultancy tells us:

“We partnered with AirByte to build a prototype. The AirByte team focused on UX/design (very key!) and collaborated seamlessly with another tech partner to bring our prototype to life in its full glory.”

Their frontend focus is built from scratch, and their famed adaptability came into play when working with the product manager at a seed to series A startup:

“Working with Airbyte has been refreshingly seamless. From day 1, the team has been completely observant of our needs and matched this with their outputs. Their ability to pivot with our changing needs is exceptional.”

But, perhaps putting it as simply as possible, Nick Aitken, the COO over at New Wave Learning, sums it up for us:

“We love working with the Airbyte team and are excited about our future relationship and development.”

Always showing off!

Quality Ingredients

The fluffiest pastries have the most care and best quality ingredients put into them, and the team at Airbyte is no different. The 10+ full-time employees have an average seniority of 5.2 years’ experience in their fields, and they eat challenges for breakfast. CEO James tells us:

People are our biggest asset and we have never rushed hiring, as the only aspect we have been in a rush to do, is hire right. We take great care in setting out career plans for all members of the team (including the co-founders), offering employee share schemes and fully remote hybrid working. If all of our team is happy at work, from the co-founders to engineers, then higher quality work will be produced and everyone wins.”

Airbyte’s Pangea Team Health Score reflects this company culture of valuing employees with another smashing score of 9.4/10.0; that 8% above-average score is bolstered by 96% employee satisfaction with the culture and management rapport and 95% satisfaction with wellbeing and peer rapport. The numbers may speak for themselves, but the employees do, as well. Luke, the head of product and design at Airbyte, regales us with the reasons he has stuck with the company:

“The main reason that I joined Airbyte, was that it gave me the opportunity to work with some amazing and exciting startups, offering me new challenges on a daily basis. Airbyte also allows me to utilise my expertise to help other founders achieve their goals.”

Chris, the lead frontend developer at Airbyte, adds his own flavour of similar sentiments:

“I love working with like-minded individuals who all share the same values and working ethic. At Airbyte, every day we strive to do our best and go the extra mile and inspire each other to push ourselves. No task is too big and challenges are welcomed. We're actively encouraged to push ourselves, build our skills and take on challenges.”

Batter Tech, Batter Solutions

Airbyte can bake up solutions best in new product development, project handovers, and support and maintenance with their heavenly technology stack. Their most frequently used languages include React.js, React Native, Node.js, Adobe XD, AWS, and Django, as well as longtime industry standards Python, JavaScript, HTML/HTML5, and CSS. Folding any combination of these languages together creates delectable UX/UI design, frothy frontend, mellow mobile, piquant platforms as a service (PaaS), and sweet web apps.

Their latest culinary creation culminates in the app-etizing masterpiece, Appetise. This food delivery app is primarily aimed at students with class schedules too packed to make home-cooked meals. The company wanted to relaunch their existing website with a frontend overhaul, as well as create a brand new mobile app to offer their potential customers more options. Airbyte was able to fast-track their design and build processes — no small feat for so many different digital mediums. They split their tasks into four main focuses, and in the end, they were able to deliver a web-based admin interface for the client’s use, a web-based restaurant interface for managing orders as they came in, a consumer-focused website for accepting orders, and mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Working with Airbyte is a piece of cake! Their supple approach to challenges makes them an ideal candidate for nearly any project, for clients of any size. Their company values quality, education, energy, passion, and modernity. To top it off, CEO James reminds us:

“Our London based team partners with startups to help them grow... fast. Typically towards getting a successful seed round. We can take your product from MVP to a bespoke built system, where you own the IP and we build your vision into reality. Building digital teams and products is broken, Airbyte is changing the story.”
