About Starburst
We’re on a mission to free our customers to see the invisible and achieve the impossible. We unlock the value of distributed data by making it fast and easy to access, no matter where it lives. 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. Today more than 150 leading organizations trust us to make better decisions faster.
Though Starburst has achieved a unicorn status and raised $164M in venture funding from top investors, we were founded in a rather unusual way with customers and revenue from the very beginning!  We operate globally in 10 countries and are proud to be named a Best Place to Work. Come join our team of All-Stars!

  • Explore integrations and extensions of Trino with customers
  • Diagnose and resolve unforeseen technical obstacles
  • Act as a liaison between customers and other teams to assist in resolution of key issues, bugs, and requirements for customers
  • Act as eyes and ears of the Starburst team to raise issues, identify risk, and mitigate potential downstream blockers

Valuable Expertise:
