About Starburst

At Starburst, we are working to dismantle the status quo of data silos and vendor lock-in every single day. For decades, database companies have held their customers hostage and we believe that’s just plain wrong. 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 300 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. 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.

As a Software Engineer Intern, you will:

    • Design and develop components for Starburst products, including a comprehensive, fully-featured web-based user interface
    • Participate in projects from concept to completion
    • Continuously improve our engineering processes, tests, and systems that allow us to scale the code base and productivity of the team
    • Collaborate with teams globally and operate in a fast-paced environment
    • Provide exceptional customer support for both internal and external customers

Some of the things we look for:

    • Students must be in their final year of university or recently graduated
    • Passion for Software Engineering
    • Experience developing software in Java 
    • Experience implementing web-based user interfaces in TypeScript using a modern web frontend framework (React, Angular, Ember, etc) 
    • Prior experience building SaaS (especially for our SaaS product, Galaxy)
    • Demonstration of ownership, grit, and bias for action - core values at Starburst

Bonus Points

    • Familiarity with Trino or similar big data tools
    • Experience contributing to open-source software
Why build your career at Starburst?

We take care of our global workforce by making sure employees enjoy competitive salaries and attractive stock grants, remote-friendly work options, flexible paid time off, and more!

Starburst Data is a diverse, equitable, and inclusive place to work.
