Starburst is on a mission to modernize data access & analytics. Our company was founded in an unusual way; with customers and revenue from the beginning! Our growth is already ahead of some of the most successful software start-ups, and we don’t plan on slowing down.

We believe our opportunity is huge. Every large company in the world suffers from a data silo problem. Traditional data warehouse products approach the problem with old solutions that breed inefficiency and ultimately can’t help business analysts run fast analytics on all their data.

Starburst provides a modern solution that addresses these data silo & speed of access problems. Starburst helps enterprises harness the value of open source Trino (formerly PrestoSQL), the fastest distributed query engine available today, by adding the tools and 24x7 support that meet the needs for big data access at scale. Ultimately, Starburst helps organizations run analytics anywhere to make better business decisions.

Starburst is looking for Software Engineers to work on our globally distributed engineering team. Our team features very strong software engineering talent, with years of core database engine and distributed systems development experience.

As a Software Engineer, you’ll be designing and implementing the Starburst products including Trino connector  for the cloud and contribute directly to the core engine project.

  • Lead complex and technically challenging projects from concept to completion
  • Write tests and contribute to ongoing automation infrastructure development
  • Run and analyze software performance metrics
  • Collaborate with teams globally across multiple time zones and operate in an Agile development environment
  • Provide exceptional customer support and be part of the support rotations for 24/7 customer escalations


  • 5+ years experience developing large scale software in Java or C++
