Join the revolution as we disrupt the data industry

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

At Starburst, we are working to dismantle the status quo of data silos and vendor lock-in every single day


Starburst offers a full-featured data lake analytics platform, built on open source Trino. 

Our platform includes all the capabilities needed to discover, organize, and consume data without the need for time-consuming and costly migration projects. Today more than 200 leading organizations trust us to make better decisions faster.

Though Starburst has raised $414M in venture funding from top investors, we were founded in a rather unusual way as we bootstrapped the business with customers and revenue from the very beginning! We are a remote-first company with employees all over the world and are proud to be named a Best Place to Work

Our founders are the creators of Trino (and previously Presto at Facebook). 10 years ago, they created Trino as the analytic database to stand the test of time. Funny enough, they never had any intentions to start a company around it. 5 years ago, we started Starburst with a similarly audacious goal: To build an iconic company that would stand the test of time. 

We have grown a lot since we were first founded in 2017 but some things haven’t changed at all: At Starburst, we are a team of top performers and are each in the driver’s seat, shaping our organization and working together towards our common mission – with tons of creativity, flexibility, and resilience. It’s hard. But none of us signed up for easy.

We are solving exceptionally complex and meaningful challenges here and as we innovate, we each have the opportunity to build our careers alongside Starbursts’s growth.

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


Humility, Grit and Authenticity

As a team, humility, grit, and authenticity are at the core of who we are. As individuals, we care more about what’s best for our company and customers over being right. We also recognize that startups have ups and downs and when we inevitably face hard times, our perseverance helps us stay the course and work harder. Through it all, we are authentic in everything we do and always operate with honesty.


Inclusive Meritocracy

As individuals, we are constantly striving to master our craft and give our best as we get things done. While individual contributions are recognized and rewarded, we also work to build an inclusive meritocracy across the entire organization where accountability is key. High performance at Starburst is both an individual and team sport.



Everyone is an owner at Starburst and has the autonomy to make a significant impact on where we are today and where we are going. 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.

Working remotely, but more connected than ever

We have major hubs in Boston, Austin, San Francisco, London, Paris, Munich, Warsaw, Tel-Aviv, and the rest of our All-Stars are remote.
