Starburst is on a mission to power analytics anywhere. We help companies quickly unlock the value of their data by making it easy to access. We do this with Presto, an open source SQL query engine that enables data consumers to access any data where it lies. Starburst Enterprise Presto is purpose-built to ensure Presto security & performance at scale. Starburst also provides enterprise-grade features and 24x7 support from the Presto experts. Organizations like Zalando, Slack, Grubhub, Comcast, and FINRA rely on Starburst to execute fast queries across their data lake, and even federate queries across different sources. Stop moving data, start using data.



Who We Are

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 been 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 Presto, 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.

Our mission is to build a real business in support of our vision. Starburst has humble bootstrapped roots that allowed us to focus on building a sustainable business. It takes delivering tremendous customer value alongside retaining a frugal operating mindset.


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


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.

To engage in the greater D&I community, we are a corporate sponsor of She+ Geeks Out, and we are also talking to organizations focused on D&I such as Resilient Coders.
