This is an atypical team with an admirable purpose.

Our mission is to free our customers from the tyranny of data lock-in.

Our company was founded in an unusual way; with customers and revenue from the beginning. For over a decade, and across three companies, our founding team has focused on solving the pains of data access – it’s too slow, inflexible, and expensive. Starburst provides a modern solution that addresses these data silo and speed of access problems. We help companies harness the value of open source Trino (formerly Presto® SQL), the fastest distributed query engine available today, by adding the connectors, security, and 24×7 support that meet the needs for fast data access at scale.

We do not model ourselves after high-burn Unicorns.

Unicorns aren’t real.

We think of ourselves as workhorses – Clydesdales if you will – because they embody hard work, strength, and are cool.

While each one of us is different, we all rally around the same values.

We value All-stars. Our team comes to win every day.

Humility: Continuous Self-Improvement

We’re all trying to become better versions of ourselves. That requires you to welcome feedback. The goal is to get to the right answer, and we all need to check our egos in that pursuit.

Ownership: Drivers Wanted.

You own your own performance and ultimately your destiny. Regardless of the role you perform here, we want drivers. If you see something that can be improved, don’t wait for someone else to improve it. Every employee has equity and this is truly your company – and ours.

Inclusive Meritocracy: Rewards Are Earned.

Those who work the hardest and perform the best earn rewards. Rewards = All-Star Bucks and increased compensation. Rewards ≠ first-class flights, boondoggles, and spa days.

Grit: We Never Stop.

Startups have ups and downs. When we inevitably face hard times, your inner drive helps you stay the course and work harder. You’re addicted to the grind and RSVP to no drama.

Authenticity: Be Genuine. Have Integrity.

We’re real people building a real business. We expect you to bring your whole self to work and operate with honesty.

You can work remote, but you'll feel close

We have hubs in Boston, Warsaw, London, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
At some point we’ll be back to having office space – but we’re truly remote-friendly.


Starburst Data is a diverse, equitable, and inclusive place to work.  We want everyone to feel welcome at the Starburst table, and we know that diversity of thought will only serve to make us a better team, and make our products better. Diversity and inclusion are an integral part of each of our core values, and we are constantly working to ensure our culture accounts for these qualities.  Moreover, we aim for consistency and fairness in our hiring processes in order to both find a diverse pool of candidates, and evaluate those candidates fairly and without bias.

When we say our people come first, we mean it.

We take care of our global workforce by:

  • Making sure employees have access to quality and affordable insurance;
  • Providing flexible and generous paid time off policies to start a family, travel or just relax;
  • Creating an environment of transparency, honesty and respect.

We also want to make sure we have a little bit, err, a lot of fun along the way with things like:

  • Family & Pet Talent Shows
  • Monthly Trivia Nights
  • Annual Company Retreats (which we’ll bring back as soon as it's safe to)
