About Starburst

Starburst is the fastest, most efficient analytics engine for a data warehouse, data lake, or data mesh. Our software provides fast and easy access to data, no matter where it lives, with a best-in-class MPP SQL engine that shortens the path to value for data. The Starburst Enterprise Platform leverages the power of the open source Trino (formerly PrestoSQL) to query data across any database, making it instantly actionable for data-driven organizations. Our SaaS offering, Starburst Galaxy provides all the benefits of Trino and Starburst in an easy to use, fully-managed enterprise-ready multi-cloud SaaS platform designed by Trino’s original creators and experts. With Starburst, teams can lower the total cost of their infrastructure and analytics investments, prevent vendor lock-in, and use the existing tools that work for their business. Though Starburst has achieved a unicorn status and raised $414M in venture funding from top investors, we were founded with customers and revenue from the very beginning. Our customers love us, we operate globally, and we are proud to be named a Best Place to Work . Come join our team of All-Stars!

About The Role

Starburst's streamlined, easy-to-use, delightful user interfaces and workflows are key value drivers. As an engineering intern on Starburst Galaxy or Enterprise, you’ll work alongside full-time engineers and share ownership of building the user experience. You’ll work closely with UX, and product management to design and build the components to implement new features our customers will love. We will strive to align these components with your chosen field of study. Daily tasks include developing and supporting new and existing product features, working with fellow engineers worldwide, learning new technologies, designing complex systems, and collaborating with various stakeholders across the organization. We are a remote-first, but not only company. As part of our internship program, certain events will require in-person attendance at our Boston Headquarters a few days a week.

  • Continuously improve our engineering processes, tests, and systems that allow us to scale the code base and productivity of the team
