Apache Airflow enables users to develop complex workflows for data processing applications by integrating a variety of tools. Its Python-based platform allows for flexibility and robustness, while its user-friendly interface allows users to easily track jobs and configure the platform. Because Apache Airflow utilizes coding to define workflow processes, end-users are able to write their own code that will execute at specified steps in a particular process.

Apache Airflow has come a long way since it was first developed as an internal project within Airbnb. Businesses that want to accelerate the delivery of and improve the quality of service/products.

Skills required to become an Apache Airflow developer

To land high-paying Apache Airflow developer jobs, have good foundation skills. Here is what you need to know.


A database management system (DBMS) is a software or hardware tool that allows users to create, read, update, delete, and retrieve data in databases. This form of management also assures the security and integrity of the data. A DBMS manages not only the database engine and the database schema but also helps provide concurrency and uniform administration procedures.

2. Apache Hadoop

Apache Hadoop is an open-source framework that is used to efficiently store and process large datasets ranging in size from gigabytes to petabytes of data. Hadoop clusters multiple computers together, allowing them to analyze massive datasets in parallel more quickly than if they were operating alone. In this way, it enables businesses to quickly and efficiently gain insights into their data.

3. Database Schema

A database schema is a database design that can be expressed as both visual diagrams and sets of logical formulas, known as integrity constraints, that define the structure of a relational database. These constraints define the rules for data definition and data manipulation within the database. A database schema exists as part of a database catalog (also called the information schema in some databases), and thus serves as a description for the contents of that database.

4. SQL

Structured Query Language (SQL) is the most popular language used to work on databases. It is a domain-specific language that can be used to perform a variety of operations, including creating a database, storing data in tables, modifying, extracting, and more. We are surrounded by data, so in order to store it securely we need a proper database and to manage that database we need a language like SQL. It has a wide range of applications and is used by business professionals, developers, and data scientists to maintain as well as manipulate data.

5. Python

Python is an effective programming language commonly used in web development, data analysis, and artificial intelligence. Python's simple syntax and readability make it ideal for building complex systems in a shorter amount of time. Moreover, since Python is cross-platform and object-oriented, as well as extensible through the use of libraries, it has become widely adopted for many non programming applications such as scientific computing, data analysis, and organizing finances.

How to get remote Apache Airflow developer jobs?

Developers are a lot like athletes. In order to excel at their craft, they have to practice effectively and consistently. They also need to work hard enough that their skills grow gradually over time. In that regard, there are two major factors that developers must focus on in order for that progress to happen: the support of someone who is more experienced and effective in practice techniques while you're practicing. As a developer, it's vital for you to know how much to practice - so make sure there is someone on hand who will help you out and keep an eye out for any signs of burnout!
