We are the Presto company. 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!

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 Presto, 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 Full-Stack Engineers to work on our growing global engineering team, specifically building out our Mission Control product. This product allows users and administrators to build and maintain Starburst Presto environments quickly and easily, and is a key offering for our customers.

Our team features very strong software engineering talent, with years of full stack development experience.  As a Full-Stack Engineer you’ll be designing and implementing our Mission Control product, building functionality and scalability into every level as part of a dynamic and fun team.  Daily tasks may include developing product features, supporting a production product, or building tools to help our products perform in a cloud-based environment.
