This is an atypical team with an admirable purpose.

We do not model ourselves after high-burn Unicorns.

Unicorns aren’t real.

We think of ourselves as workhorses – Clydesdales if you will – because they embody hard work, strength, and are cool.

  • Values
  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
  • Benefits

While each one of us is different, we all rally around the same values. We value All-stars. Our team comes to win every day.

Humility: Continuous Self-Improvement

We’re all trying to become better versions of ourselves. That requires you to welcome feedback. The goal is to get to the right answer, and we all need to check our egos in that pursuit.

Ownership: Drivers Wanted.

You own your own performance and ultimately your destiny. 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.

Inclusive Meritocracy: Rewards Are Earned.

Those who work the hardest and perform the best earn rewards. Rewards = All-Star Bucks and increased compensation. Rewards ≠ first-class flights, boondoggles, and spa days.

Grit: We Never Stop.

Startups have ups and downs. When we inevitably face hard times, your inner drive helps you stay the course and work harder. You’re addicted to the grind and RSVP to no drama.

Authenticity: Be Genuine. Have Integrity.

We’re real people building a real business. We expect you to bring your whole self to work and operate with honesty.

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.
