I used to develop reverse ETL systems with Python and Airflow for destinations like Eloqua, Mixpanel, Braze, Intercom, and Salesforce. Every destination requires different data types, formats, rate limits, and API requests. Census saves me from maintaining my custom code, so I can spend more time to optimize the system itself.
